A boy learns of his dragon past; a girl has known of hers for years. They combine their faith, courage, and love to overcome an evil slayer who seeks to bring an end to dragon heritage, forever. The kids at school call Billy “Dragon Breath” for good reason. His breath is bad! It isn’t the normal, morning-mouth bad; it’s the hot-as-fire, “don’t-you-dare-get-near-me” bad. And hearing “Dragon Breath” ringing in his ears, he constantly tries to cool his oral volcano. Trouble erupts when his hot breath sets off the fire sprinklers in the boys’ restroom at school, and his parents learn that they've kept their secret for too long. Billy finally discovers the secret. His father was once a dragon! Now that’s a piece of news a guy doesn’t deal with every day! Billy feels betrayed, alien, lost. When his father reverts to his dragon form, and they’re both chased by dragon slayers, he learns to trust his father again, battling the slayers with weapons of steel and spirit. Bonnie, an orphan, tries to find a home, someone to love her, even though she feels like a freak because of a body feature that she calls a deformity, her dragon wings, inherited from her now dead dragon mother. She discovers that her love for others and her faith in a Creator hold the answers she is looking for. Raising Dragons is a contemporary fantasy novel that inspires young people to dig deep within to find their God-given strengths and use them to overcome any obstacle.

    " I think that it was very well written as a christian/fantasy book with dragons. I enjoy such books but very few revolve around Christianity and so when I found out about these books I snatched them up and couldn't put them down. All in all, a great work! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joleene | 2/2/2014

    " I actually really liked this book on some levels. It was written by a Christian author, and I have my own issues with most authors of this Genre. But despite the slightly less than par writing in some points, the story is quite novel and it was a pretty quick read. I am actually looking forward to reading the second book. "

    " I read this entire series to my son and mother. We would have tea at night and sit in the living room and I would read to both of them. Sometimes they would snuggle in the guest room beds and I'd read them to sleep - really both my Mom and my Son. It was great. We loved the entire series. "

    " i was amazed at how the Christianity was woven in so subtly as to not ruin the plot, yet it finds you throughout the book. Bryan Davis certainly knows how to write a book. "
