The Candlestone is a contemporary fantasy novel, the second in a series of audiobooks for pre-teens and young adults. This series inspires young people to pursue faith, courage, and love and to dig deep within to find their God-given strengths, no matter how difficult the circumstances. The first book, Raising Dragons, plunged two teenagers, Billy Bannister and Bonnie Silver, into mind-boggling mysteries, life or death pursuits, and deadly sword-to-sword battles. In The Candlestone, a mysterious book leads Billy into mortal combat with a powerful dragon slayer. Separated from his friends and finding his dragon traits useless against this enemy, he has to rely on new weapons, a sword and shield he cannot even see. A scientist lures Bonnie to his laboratory with amazing news—her mother is still alive! He sends her to retrieve her mother from the candlestone, that strange, paralyzing gem that absorbs light and with it, the strength of dragons and their offspring. Billy and Bonnie face their greatest fears as they battle powerful enemies, ancient fiends from times long past, and the horrors of the blackest of prisons, captivity within the walls of unearthly darkness—the crystalline tomb of the candlestone.

    " This second installment sadly didn't live up to my expectations. I sludged through it out of pure determination to be able to say I finished it (ok ok, so I WAS a little curious to find out what happened), but it just wasn't nearly as enjoyable as the first one. The writing was cheesier and even less-believable than the first book - particularly regarding the main characters' dialogue and emotions - and while the whole concept of the candlestone is quite creative and the "science" of it somewhat intriguing, the prolonged explanations of the technicalities of it only made the plot sag. It was fun to a degree, and ok, there were a few choice tense parts when I had to force myself to stop reading, but overall, I'm still not totally sure it was worth it.... Anyway, the remaining books have gone down in my priority to read. "

    " It was really good! I enjoyed it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane | 2/9/2014

    " I enjoyed this one as much as the first in the series. The genre, to me, now seems to start riding the line between fantasy and science fiction, but although I'm not crazy about science fiction, I'm accepting it for now. I like the introduction of more characters, but I hope that won't spread the character development too thin as the series continues. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Briggs Uhler | 2/8/2014

    " It was ok. If you like dragons, this is the book for you. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 MizziQ | 1/25/2014

    " This was a step up from the 1st one. However I didn't think it had a good plot to get me hooked. I really think Davis should have spent more time on character developement. If you pretty much like dragons and fighting, this book is for you. But if you like some good characters and meaty plot, I suggest you brwse elswhere. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jillian | 1/1/2014

    " This story is about the new King Arthur who is trying to end the dragon slayer's quest to eliminate the dragon race from the earth. This book doesn't really relate to real life because there are no dragons, and King Arthur is something of the past. "

    " I read this a couple of years ago and liked it. I got it as a gift in 2010 and just finished it today. It's really good and as I read it I was reminded of how good it was, because it had been a long time since I read it the first time. ^^ "

    " This book is awesome! It's what I have been looking for in a long time. The plot was amazing, it consists of prophecies, dragons, wizards, and a world long ago in King Arthur's days. I love it. There should be more books like this! "
