This book is the continuation of the saint of dragons. In this book Aldric and Alaythia are strongly in love, which for them is extremely dangerous. When a knight and magician are in love they send off a strong magic that dragons can sense any where in the world. This was how Simon's mother was killed. So one day the India dragon goes to their home and destroys it. Alaythia realizes that she is the cause so she runs away. While searching for her, Simon and Aldric stumble upon information that t ...more

Simon St. George is the youngest male descendant of the legendary Saint George. Simon and his father, Aldric, are also the last to carry on the dragon slaying legacy of their ancestor. Or so they think.

Their latest adventure (SAMURAI is the sequel to THE SAINT OF DRAGONS) takes them to the Far East on a hunt for an elusive group of Asian dragons. The father and son team encounter an ancient order of samurai, sworn to defeat the dragons. The samura

I picked up this book because I found it for free somewhere and was pleasantly surprised. While the story wasn't anything all that special, the characterization is SPECTACULAR! I loved all the characters in this book. They're all so well drawn and full and quirky, but in a way that works. They're not quirky for the sake of being weird, it all work in the story. Seriously, read this book.

The second book in the Saint of Dragons series. Simon St. George and his father are dragon slayers. They travel the world killing dragons who hide in human form and spread evil throughout the world. When Alaythia, the magician who helps them, leaves they set out on a quest to find her. The journey takes them to Japan where they discover a group of Samurai dragon slayers. An uneasy truce develops as the two groups must join together to prevent two powerful dragons from mating and destroying the w ...more

Sequels most of the time never live up to the original but in some ways Samurai is much better. Samurai is better than the original because it deals with pacing and story telling issues, but still has some flaws are that big plot twists that appear out of no where.

I really liked this series. I am sure another installment will come in time. I hate waiting. It is different from all the other dragon books out. Fast paced and you never know what will happen next.
A great sequel to the first book, with new dragon-hunters being discovered, along with an unknown relative. A fantastic book that leaves scope for a sequel, which I hope Hightman will write.
Has many of the same problems of the previous book, but does make it's characters a bit more interesting. But not much.
Turns out. . . There are more "clans" of Dragonkillers!!! And these guys are JAPANESE! Awesome, especially with Samurai!
This is a really good sequel to The Saint of Dragons. Both books are very exciting and suspenseful!
