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 think that the book is amazing because the author puts a lot of detail to his novel, and it has a good plot to it. Although there is sometimes too much detail put into the book, it is still the best book that I have read because, it has dragons and knights in it and I am a fan of dragons and knights. Another thing that makes it so great is that it has the best beginning, that started out with action and it was so full of details that I felt what it was like fighting with the dragon, and feelin ...more

Thoroughly enjoyed the book! Would definitely recommend it as a book to UKS2 boys who don't like to read! Has everything they would like!

As a whole the book is very well written, even though I haven't read the 1st in the series I still felt like I knew enough about the story to follow along well.

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.

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.
