Now that the Watchers are free, Billy and his friends embark on the final showdown. Billy and Bonnie go after Clefsphere, journeying into a new world that is more familiar than they suspected, while everyone else organizes the remaining dragons for war. Morgan takes a new hostim. The Watchers battle with strength and treachery.

Really, it's impossible to know how to summarize the book without giving everything away. In fact, if you read the Acknowledgements section at the beginning, you've read t

What a great ending to the series! I'm not sure who I like most, Billy, Bonnie, or Walter! Oh dear, that Walter.

That ending--whew!

Update 9.30.13: Every time I read it, I love it a little more :D
Kris
Incredibly cheesy, shallow, simplistic, unrealistic, and condescending (in a lighthearted sort of way). With flat characters, patronizing dialogue, and meaningless villains and death, nothing in this book can be taken seriously.

Medieval sorceresses and hellish demons that say things like "Enough chichat!" or "Oh, don't play dumb, my little brainiac." or "I know you're up to something," or "What do you think I am, your tour guide? I'll shake this plane so hard, you'll hear your own bones rattle!"

Storyline - The final battle is near. There is just one more thing Billy and Bonnie have to do. They must go to where the dragon's spirits have been waiting to be freed and free them. Simple enough. But with Morgan on the loose and going after Billy's friends and the demons, the Watchers, getting ready for battle, the clock is ticking and everything is at stake. Also, the place where the dragons are is a strange place and not all the dragons believe Billy and Bonnie. Can they save the dragons an ...more

Tears of a Dragon gives a heart-warming and stunning ending to the Dragons in our Midst series. The final battle of the Watchers and dragons was heart-wrenching and I simply seemed to be witnessing it personally. I absolutely adore the series, it brought me closer to God and taught me to have faith no matter what condition I am in. How Mr Davis had intertwined the legends, reality, spiritual truths, imagination and God into a single series was amazing! I can never imagine someone having the abil ...more

Wow. As I started reading this book, I quickly realized that the events in this book are the ones that transpired at the end of the Eye of the Oracle. And it upset me, because I knew how everything was going to end, and I didn't want things to end that way. But then I read the book, and found that I was wrong. Yes, the events in this book did also happen in the Eye of the Oracle, but since in this book I'm getting a different angle of the events, I got more of the story, and it didn't end the wa ...more

this book was full of adventurer and action full of info about god and king Arthur there is also a bit of romance in it for the women and a bunch of stuff about sword and stuff for the guys...
Mason Settles
By far my favorite of the Dragons in our Midst series, this is the most action filled of them all. The last of it's series, it brings everything to close in a very dramatic and touching way.

I loved the entire 'Dragons In Our Midst' series, and Tears of a Dragon was a great ending. The story was entertaining and I liked how the characters start to mature more. It ties up a lot of loose ends, but leaves open new mysteries for 'Oracles of Fire' to solve. I also love how Bryan Davis always clearly shows how good conquers evil in the end. (SPOILER ALERT!) It was also satisfying that all the Dragons got a choice of how to become, and that Billy's father became human again. The emotions i ...more

it Gets confusing in some parts but is a great story!

This series had great potential, and had a good plot with good (if cliche) characters that felt familiar. Unfortunately, the writing was painful to get through. It's not that it was bad. I just felt that I had to force myself to read this series that was full of good metaphors, meaningful spiritual anecdotes, and good ethical questions. Most of which were hard to appreciate because reading the whole thing felt like wading through clay.
Elissa
Yet again, another AWESOME book!!! They just get better and better! I'm so sad that I've read them all, but I can't wait to read the other series!!!!
This book was I think the best of all four, though "The Candlestone" rates a close second. This one is a "Stay up til 3 am" book, while the other three only made it til 2 am ;D I wonderful final installment, in a truely awesome series of books!!!!!!!!
Elaine White
Just as good, if not better, than the rest of the series. I think I might be in love with Billy Bannister...and Jared Bannister...and maybe even Clefspeare. I just love the whole series and can't wait to get round to Oracles of Fire series.
Olivia
I loved this book but the first few chapters i was very bored but when i finally got into the book it was way better. And at the end i have 1 question;Dose Bonnie still have her wings or not? Itnever told you.
Mary Ann
Don't know why this book left me feeling unsatisfied. I think all of the characters brought back from the dead made even fantasy seem even more unreal than the norm.

This book and the books before it are really good. They are about Dragons, love, faith, war, and trust. They had me wanting more from beginning to end.

A good end to a Good series. It doesn't tie up every loose end but that is what the Oricals of Fire series is for.

A final climax of the series, an action packed story that leads up to the ending perfectly.

Not really what I was expecting, and a little odd with all the demons, but not bad.

“I know after all the awful places you've had to go, it's hard to imagine how good heaven can be, but I've seen it, and no words can describe it...It's worth it all. We've both lost a parent, we've been beaten and bruised, and we've done through hell together. I even died. And I can tell you...giving up everything to serve God is worth it all.” 7 likes
