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. "

    " 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. "
