Dragon Lightning by J.S. Burke
The wonderful and enchanting story continues as Arak, Scree and their friends set out on more adventures, this time they're looking for Ice Dragons.
Once again the author blends fact and fantasy in an exciting story which is suitable for both children and adults.
The story is detailed and well written and I found myself immersed within the pages of the book, sharing the experience with the dragons and octopuses.
Dragon Lightning is book 2 in The Dragon Dreamer series. It's a fast-paced adventure with flying dragons, an undersea world, and unlikely friendships. This science fantasy is layered for readers age 9 to adult.
Drakor seems like a normal young ice dragon with a talent for making lightning swords. But he alone feels the changing heart of his island Volcano. It destroyed his beloved sire. Now he foresees their doom, but none will listen. As he seeks proof, the Volcano shakes him off into the frozen sea . . .
Arak was mocked as a worthless dreamer until he and Scree, a fearless undersea misfit, saved the dragons. Now dragons and octopi sail north in search of mythical ice dragons. They find Drakor and a terrifying reality. When Scree enters the abyss to check his volcano, she discovers everyone is in peril. Can this crew of unlikely friends save three realms?
The Dragon Dreamer series by J.S. Burke is science fantasy/adventure with flying dragons, an undersea world, and unexpected friendship. It's immense fun to write novels that blend imagination with real science and author experiences. The deadly sea storm that threatens Arak, a young dragon, is one that the author survived. Living on a ship far from shore, she traveled in a circle of blue and learned to walk with the sea.
