In the last book of the series the human army is coming to save the slaves. Jason, Koren and Elyssa are working to save the slaves and army from a deadly disease. The new dragon king Taushin is trying to pit the dragons against each other. He is also trying to get one of the Starlighters, Koren or Cassabrie, under his control. Koren and Cassabrie have their own plans on how to save everyone. Will the disease kill all the humans? Will the dragons kill all the humans? Or will the dragons and humans form alliances and find a remedy to the deadly disease?
About the author- Bryan Davis lives in western Tennessee where he lives with his wife and seven children. He has written the series, Dragons in Our Midst, Oracles of Fire, and Echoes from the Edge.
My thoughts- This book needs an introduction that discusses what has happened in the other three books. I didn’t remember what had happened in the last book, so I had to struggle to remember as I was reading the first couple of chapters. Another thing that would have been helpful would have been a list of the characters and their roles. I kept getting confused between human and dragon and bad and good.
This was the best book in the series because the action happens and the reader learns more about the Creator and how the Starlighters are crucial to saving the human slaves. The dragons are interesting in their alliances between themselves and with the humans (some their former slaves). I was interested in the relationship between Jason and Elyssa. I didn’t know they even had a relationship. I always thought the relationship would be between Jason and Koren.
I would recommend this book to all teens and especially those who have already read the other books in the series. They really need the closure that takes place in the last book.
