Two days have passed since David last appeared to Zanna and Alexa in the park. Those two days have filled Zanna with a confusion and hatred. Where was he? How did he survive? Who is he? What she does not know, is that David has been entrusted with a mission; a mission that will decide the fate of the universe. He must destroy all traces of the dark fire. But the question is, how much is he willing to risk?
As with the previous books in the Last Dragon Chroncies, Chris d’Lacey has re-thought the concept of dragons. His vision on ‘how the earth would be like if dragons existed’ have a realism about them that many fantasy novels don’t. His unique ideas about dragons set them to life in a way that is believable, and yet awe-inspiring.
Dark Fire is a much darker book than any of the previous, and I think where as the first novel was a very loveable but tame novel, this book will appealm to a much larger audience. Even the cover feels much more dark and sinister.
Previous books have really changed what we think of David as a character, and at last, we find out what is really up with him! Again, with Alexa, we didn’t know what was going to happen with her. Dark Fire has revealed who she is a what she is…I need to applaud Chris d’Lacey again, for his very believable characters. All of them are 3-dimensional, and are great to read about!
I think Dark Fire is officially my favourite in the series so far, and after being stranded with Polar bears in Fire Star, this is much better and intresting for me to read. (Yes, I wasn’t a fan of the polar bear scenes). I recommend it to everyone, but if you haven’t read the previous in the series, I wold start there, or you might get confused…
