Publisher's Description

It has been fifteen years since Billy and Bonnie Bannister helped repel the demonic assault on Heaven. Now they and Ashley Foley sit in a maximum security prison where the authorities conduct experiments on them to learn the secrets of long life. Earlier, the world’s acceptance of dragonkind crumbled, and the Enforcers took the infant twins born to Billy and Bonnie and stole Excalibur, hoping to develop a weapon to battle the dragons that are sure to try to rescue their allies. All the while, a great secret from the past is being revealed to Bonnie through a dream. Joran and Selah, teenaged children of Methuselah, have been trapped in a strange world for centuries, yet still able to manipulate certain events in our world during that time.
 
Walter Foley finds the Bannisters’ son and hopes to use his dragon traits to help him rescue the prisoners. In the meantime, an ancient demon locates the Bannisters’ daughter and plans to use her to help him discover the hiding place of the most powerful ovulum in the world and squelch its protective song. With that ovulum in his possession, he will be able to conquer and control both Earth and Second Eden.
 
The fate of two worlds now rests on the Bannisters’ two teenagers who must use their dragon traits and their innate courage to battle demons, a sorceress, and soldiers in a military compound in order to rescue parents they don’t even know.

Editorial Reviews

Song of the Ovulum is the first book in Bryan Davis's new fantasy series, Children of the Bard, which is a continuation of the story world established by his previous works the Dragon's in our Midst series and Oracles of Fire series. If you haven't read Dragon's in our Midst and Oracles of Fire, I highly recommend you do so in order to fully enjoy this addition.

Now on to my thoughts about Song of the Ovulum ...

Bryan Davis is one of my top favorite authors. Why? Because he writes the most unique stories I've ever read--period. All of Davis' books contain a creative, allegorical take on Biblical figures and events, unheard-of fantasy elements like anthrozils (human/dragon hybrids), and multifaceted plots that go beyond imagination.

This latest adventure, Song of the Ovulum, is no exception. It has Davis' signature blend of heart-stopping action and heart-stirring emotion. All the characters that I love from the two previous series are back. Plus, there are great new characters to meet like Billy & Bonnie's kids, and Listeners Joran and Selah. I was especially moved by Joran as he struggled to forgive the woman who murdered his sister. Through his journey Joran learns that if you keep holding tightly to bitterness, you will find that you are strangling yourself.

Such priceless words of wisdom are another reason why this story is a must read. If you're looking for a book unlike anything you've ever read before, check out Bryan Davis and Song of the Ovulum.

    I'm soooo happy that Bryan Davis has started writing another series that follows Dragons in our Midst and Oracles of Fire!!! I have already read Song of the Ovulum twice as I wait impatiently for the next book to be published! Words can't describe how thrilled I was when I finally met Bonnie, Billy, Walter, Ashley, Sapphira, Elam, and all the awesome dragons again, along with some new characters that I have quickly fallen in love with!!!! This book made me laugh and cry as I, once again, read about how anything is possible when God is on our side, and how we can overcome and go through any trial as long as he is with us. My favorite character ever, Bonnie, is a true inspiration because of her amazing faith and courage that she displays while going through horrible circumstances. This book is recommended to ANYONE, especially those who adore adrenaline-laced plots with nonstop action and characters who inspire you and build your faith! Oh, and do yourself a favor by reading the two series that come before Children of the Bard first :)

    Wow. And we thought this series was over. I can't imagine it without "Song of the Ovulum" anymore. It was a perfect addition: filled with the same action, suspense, high stakes, and unshakable faith as the first eight. From "Raising Dragons" through "The Bones of Makaidos", we have been growing to know and love Billy, Bonnie, Walter, Ashley, and all their friends. This book not only brought back nearly all the familiar faces, it introduced still more characters just as captivated and endearing as the originals. The stakes seemed so high, I often found myself thinking that there was no possible way out this time, but I was again proven wrong. Dragons, at least those that serve the Lord, really can take on almost anything. From the days of the flood, all the way to the stormy world relations with Second Eden, Mr. Davis has shown his amazing skill in weaving memorable characters into fantastical worlds where anything and everything might happen: plants may turn to people, voices may be stolen and returned, and songs of mercy have power incomprehensible. For those of you who thought the ride was over with "The Bones of Makaidos": Buckle your seat belts and get ready to dive in even farther, because you ain't seen nothin' yet.

    After waiting several months, it finally came! And it was awesome. I had a hard time putting it down. After opening the box, the book held my attention for the next 7 hours (it was on a Saturday). The story definitely lived up to my expectation; it was very exciting and suspenseful. It also makes me look forward to future books by Davis. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fiction/fantasy.

    On August 23, 2010, I learned that Bryan Davis was officially going to begin work on his new series to follow the story of Dragons In Our Midst and Oracles of Fire. When I finally began reading Song of the Ovulum, my heart began racing with excitement. I found so much delight in seeing the old characters I love return to the written world in yet another masterful story. New characters as well joined in the adventure, and I was eager to get to know them as they partook in this quest for good to triumph. From the first page, the story drew me in. As the plot continued to unfold I was laughing and crying, anxious to find what part all characters would take in this new series. Song of the Ovulum left me enthralled with its story, but still eagerly looking forward to the next addition. It was filled with the qualities of friendship, sacrifice, and God's love. Children of the Bard is off to an amazing start, and my high expectations were not only fulfilled, but exceeded as I read the first volume in this series. I am delighted by Song of the Ovulum, and overjoyed with the opportunity to continue this journey even more!
