Before the secrets of the tapestry of the battle of Isenfier can be discovered, first, we must tell of the legendary Agawin, a young boy in the prehistory of time, when dragons still roamed this earth in all their magnificence. He shall tell of the quest for the last dragon, Galen, and his guard high up the mountain peaks of Kasgerden, ready to shed his fire tear and return his auma to the eternal fire of Gaia. But before even that comes his battle

Words cannot even comprehend the beauty and enchantment that lies within this book. The Last Dragon Chronicles has been my favourite series for many years, and I suspect it will remain that way for a long time. This novel is gripping, venturing into history and the true past that has inspired almost every event up until now. Whilst heartbreaking at times, it leaves you satisfied with the knowledge you have. A brilliant conclusion to a magical series. I will never forget the way these books chang ...more

The end is finally here, its been a bit of a roller-coaster and sometimes aggravatingly confusing but what an ending!!! Considering the last penultimate book was set in an alternate world, you easily slip back into a the original characters and some new ones. I wont lie, I got confused, I got angry and I cried more than once. I started these books when I was eight and soon it would be over. It was only after that I realised that you read the first one when you're fairly young and as you get olde ...more

I have been reading this series for the past five years, since fourth grade, when I got the first few books, to now, with a week until my last day of eighth grade. It will be hard to leave the series behind.
I loved everything about this book. EVERYTHING!!! The only thing that I didn't like was the fact that it's the last book in the series!
I will never forget them... Hrrrrrrr...

I think I need to read them again, but remembering from when I last read them, I could make no sense out of the last two in the series at all.

Imagine if the world you live in was the exact same as it is now. Simple right? Now imagine that same reality, but with a hidden world of dragons. Dragons that can walk, talk, fix objects, make potions, see all, hear all, read, write, and of course fly and breathe fire. That is the world David Rain, Zanna Martindale, Tam Ferrell Elizabeth, Arthur, and Lucy Pennykettle all live in. The dragons are starting to repopulate our home and with them the Ix, evil being who wish to rule the earth. David, ...more

The last book in the Last Dragon Chronicles series and I just can’t handle this…too many feels. I started reading this series when I was ten years old and I’ve kept reading as the books were released. My love of dragons didn’t begin with these books but it certainly helped it grow. These books made me look at writing and creativity differently as David Rain wrote and changed reality or Liz crafted dragons out of clay. I love these stories how I love Harry Potter because the stories grew with me ...more

I can honestly say I've grown up with these books since I picked up The Fire Within at a Barnes & Noble in eighth grade (I just got done with my junior year of college). I know for me personally, I feel like these books have grown with me, starting out pretty innocently and becoming more serious as they went on. This was a great conclusion to an awesome series. At first I was confused that the focus was on backstory, but I came to enjoy the perspective and it really helped you understand the ...more
