This was a great light read for any adult and a fantastic read for younger audiences as well. While the characterizations were a little flat I still enjoyed the story. The author gave a good deal of information on dragon folklore that I found very interesting. For an adult this story is predictable and may lack in some excitement. For the more youthful reader, I think this book is a great adventure to get lost in.

Storyline: The Crimson Eyed Dragon by D.M. Trink (Wonder if the “D” stands for “Dragon”…?), is a great mystery story for those who believe in the power of love and indulge a little in World of Warcraft.

Jared is a typical teenager: he’s ready to fight zombies, increase his warlock powers and work on getting his driver’s license. And all while on his summer break. Whew! As if World of Warcraft games aren’t enough, he is drawn into the mystery of a statue he finds in an antique shop. Who is Abigail

This book reminded me a lot of the movie, The Goonies. There are four kids who look for clues in order to find a treasure that a man has left behind after he dies; in this case, precious jewelry. However, they are not looking for the treasure for themselves, but for someone else. This book is a nice adventure for kids.

The only faults I could find are that there are a lot of !!!! exclamation points in this book. I felt like I was being yelled at through most of the book. I mean, no one gets exci

It's an okay young adult mystery, but is a little rough around the edges.

Jared is a normal teen, who likes little more than hanging out and playing World of Warcraft. One day he comes into possession of an intriculately cared dragon statuette with red eyes. That statuette hides information that leads to a mystery concerning a past love that ensnares him and his friends in the search to find out what the crimson-eyed dragon is protecting.

It's good to see an author write a straight-up mystery rat
A fairly enjoyable teen adventure/mystery book. Didn't really like the references to iPods and texting and cell phones, but it is a modern story. Has a couple threads of romance woven through and one scene of action. Worth a quick read, but it's nothing too special overall. May be enjoyed more heartily by a younger reader.
