Jason Masters and Koren live on two different worlds. Their worlds are filled with stories of legends of the other. Jason lives in a world with humans. Koren is a slave to the dragons on Dracon. Jason and Koren soon learn their worlds are joined together by a portal.

Jason, Elyssa and some of their friends find the portal and Koren find out she has a storytelling gift. They set forth and begin to free the slaves on Dracon. Will they succeed and what is the importance of the black egg?

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- While this book was not allegorical or contain Bible verses, Starlighter was an adventure that shows right from wrong and ways that lead us to God.

I thought this book was well written, but it failed to completely capture me and hold me. I think it was because I did not quite connect with dragons having slaves.

As I was reading this book I was excited to learn how Jason and Elyssa were going to find the portal, how Koren was going to help her people escape Dracon and how it all related to their morals. Koren had a book of Code that was very important to the people and they used it as we use a Bible. Elyssa said, “liberty is Creator’s greatest gift- freedom from slavery to any and all things that keep us from reaching out to him.” This showed me that even though they are from different planets they showed good morals. It will be a fun wait for the next book to come out, to see how they continue to serve and protect people with their morals and codes.

Would I recommend? Yes, as long as you like dragons and adventure!
