The Fire Eternal
A new magic is stirring beneath the surface of the Earth....
Five years have passed since David Rain, now a bestselling author, disappeared mysteriously in the Arctic. And slowly the ice is changing, bears are starving, dragons are rising, the souls of the Inuit dead are haunting the skies. The spirit Gaia, goddess of the Earth, is restless, aching to bring down her might...more
WHAT THE *BLEEP*???
This book was terrible. Actually, it started going downhill with the last book. This one went all sci-fi and 'cosmic'. I mean, Ix:risor??? (Or however it's spelt- honestly, I can't be bothered to go back and check.) Who puts a colon in the middle of a name?
Well, Chris d'Lacey, obviously. I couldn't help but hate this book, including the death and return of the 'new, improved' David Rain.
I read The Fire Within, and it was gorgeous. Icefire was almost ...more
While I do appreciate how Chris D'Lacey is trying to delve deeper into the whole concept of dragons and other folklore, this book seemed like it was just too much.
I was lost for most of the book. Then again, I haven't read the last book in literally years ...more
Although this is an incredibly childish seires, there are some real adult elements - death, betrayal, etc. It's been a few years since I read the first three books but this was definitely one of the best...though I would have liked to re-read the others just for clarification - the plot goes all over the place. I found myself wanting to read more about the dragons at ...more
First off, its so confusing! All the G names are driving me crazy! I can't keep track of who they are talking about! Gwedolen, Guinevere, Gwillana, Gadzooks... so annoying!
And the fain? What? Commingling? What? So confusing. How exactly does that work? A lot of the time half the things he talks about make no sense and I feel like he's really just making stuff up without any thought of it making sense.
Lucy also really bugged me in this ...more

But yeah, after eons of contemplating as to why I should finish the book or not 'cause it bored the hell out of me, I'd finally decided to just go with it. Although I didn't like this as MUCH as I liked the second and third installments of the ...more
It's four years after Gwillana kidnapped Lucy and took her to the tooth of Ragnar, four years that David has been presumed dead to all but Lucy and she wants the world to know him as the hero she saw him as. With Zanna being mother to David's strange child Alexa and Elizabeth being in love with Arthur Lucy is left feeling lost and seeks help from a journalist to prove David is alive, but problems occur and soon it seems ...more
Spoilers in review read at own risk
So the end of the last book literally left me in tears. I mean geez! David getting stabbed in the heart and finding out he is about to be a father before he is pushed into the ocean only to be lost forever? Talk about a cliffhanger and a tear jerker.. I was begging for him to come back all throughout this book because I missed him so much.
So in this book it has been a long time since David has been lost to the bowls of the sea. Zanna took it ...more
The fire Enternal is about manlily finding David. Also the clay dragon Gadzooks is evil. In this book there is a lot of adventuer. The fire eterernal or any of the Chirs D'Lacey clay dragrons books are for anyone who likes to ...more
The Fain and the Ix were very interesting and I like how we got more of them. The most intriguing part for me was probably the theme of David's mysterious past, which is something that has been hinted at from the beginning but is now becoming quite ...more
This book was really good. The author is very good at describing the characters emotions. This author writes a lot of teen books that are very good.
The Pennykettles went 5 years without David. Zanna opened a shop, and it is called the Healing Touch. Zanna branded Tam with the mark of Oomara, and erased his memory, so he left Zanna alone. Lucy wanted to find out where David lived, so she teamed up with Tam to figure that out. Lucy ran after a squirrel, while ...more
