This is the sequel to The Dragon Boy, and the beginning is promising. The writing borrows some of the maturity of the adult protagonist. Michael (in the previous book ‘boy’) is now a mature knight with many adventures under his belt, but he has yet to fight a dragon. He is traveling to where he has heard a wild dragon has settled. This is an active choice, and he has qualms about his decision, creating internal conflict before any other characters enter. When they do, he handles himself with aut ...more

Yet another amazing book that I think my husband and son will love! This story takes place approximately 15 years after the first book "The Dragon Boy." I say approximately because the knight Michael isn't really sure how long he has been a wondering knight. It has been so long that it's almost all he can remember of his life, other than being trained to be a knight by the luck dragon Star. He has spent all these years wandering the country, helping people in need, and trying to find a dragon. Y ...more

I don't quite know what to make of this trilogy. The writing isn't as good as the story. That's the long and short of it, I guess. And the story got a bit muddled in this one. It didn't help that the hero aged 15 or 20 years between the first book and this. That's an awkward age jump for any author to attempt and I can't say Samson was successful.

I'm disappointed because I ended up really liking the first one. Oh, well.

There wasn't as much of an arc in this book -- things just sort of stumbled

An exciting continuation from the first book. This story is well written. If you love dragon stories, boys coming of age-growing strong- with a good nature- learning from hard work, then you will enjoy this story. Michael goes off to have adventures and many years go by. He hears of a dragon that is causing trouble and travels to that kingdom. On route there, he is captured and put to work with those who will be sacrificed to try and slay the dragon. He meets the princess ( who should have been ...more

I had a lovely discussion about how our moods sit in our trunk area - heart, lungs and so forth - and our thoughts in our head space. How the trunk is like the moon, the head the sun and how we are affected by both - women especially the moon. A student then said, " lt makes sense then that Aina could understand Star's heart/feelings and Michael his mind/thoughts." Excellent story for considering morality, bravery, love and loyalty.

When authors come to my school, I always get a few books and have them sign them. So when Donald Samson came to my school a year or 2 ago, I got the first 2 books. (The 3rd hadn't come out yet) I was immediately into the book by the first chapter, at the most. Both the 1st and 2nd books were amazing!

The dragon of two hearts was an excellent read it always had something going on and the story all came together at the end. I love the authors writing technique. i would first sight the dragon boy which was the first book. I suggest this to middle schoolers and up.

It was an amazing second book. And I loved it how the author brought back old secrets and knowledge from the first book as well as old characters. Defiantly a favorite.

For nineteen years I was a Waldorf classroom teacher in grades 1 - 8. I had the pleasure of telling my students a story every day. I was able to share all of my favorite fairy tales, saint stories, fables, myths, and historical biographies depending on the grade. One autumn, I wanted to tell my children a new story, one that had never been told before. The story went on for weeks. The children lov ...more
