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 dragon 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. Trouble erupts when his hot breath sets off the fire sprinklers in the boys' restroom at school, and his parents learn they 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 everyday! Billy feels betrayed, alien, lost. When the dragon slayer traps him on a cold mountaintop in West Virginia, Billy learns to battle with weapons of steel and spirit while relying on a power he doesn't understand, a power that helps him lean to trust again.
Bonnie, an orphan, tries to find a home, someone to love her, even thought she feels like a freak because of a body feature that she calls a deformity. But this unusual feature becomes a life-saving attribute as she discovers that her love for others and her faith in a creator hold the answers she's looking for.
Raising Dragons is a contemporary fantasy novel that inspires you to dig deep within to find your God-given strengths and use them to overcome any obstacle. It is both a hair-raising, modern-day adventure and a glimpse into another world -- a world of knights, dragons, and fair maidens. Recommended for ages 12 and up.

In this young adult contemporary fantasy novel, author Bryan Davis took historical events surrounding the legend of King Arthur and Merlin the Magician and turned them upside down, backwards, and inside out. Fully human and fully dragon, heroes Billy and Bonnie are being hunted by an evil and determined dragon slayer.
As a 12-year-old, I really liked this book and recommend it as a fun and exciting book for ages ten and up. I was so engrossed in the book, that my mama decided she didn't want to miss out on the fun so she is reading it aloud to our family.
In addition to being a page-turning read, Raising Dragons teaches the principles of faith, love, and courage. It showed me how God can interact in our lives even in the most difficult situations that Satan can ever bring on. God is always there for us.
I've had the pleasure of meeting the author, Bryan Davis and one of his seven children. As a father, Davis obviously writes the quality of book he'd like his family to enjoy. Raising Dragons is published under AMG Publishers' imprint called Living Ink Books. This new line features "writing worth reading."
If you look for me now, you 'll find me eyebrow-deep into the pages of the sequel to Raising Dragons, titled The Candlestone. -- Estee Wells, Christian Book Previews.com

Raising Dragons captivates its reader in a way you wouldn't expect. You feel as they feel, you cry when they cry, and you laugh when they laugh, and there is always a character whom you can relate to. All in all I would recommend Raising Dragons to anyone looking for an adventure.
AnnaPLAge: Under 18Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Don't wait to read this!October 27, 2010AnnaPLAge: Under 18Gender: femaleThe first time I read this book I couldn't put it down. What with Billy finding out about his father's past, and Bonnie struggling with loneliness, I had to know what would happen next and, most importantly, how it all ended. Thankfully, this was only the first in a series that has many surprises I never could have anticipated. I think you'll love reading it and the rest of Billy and Bonnie's story just as much as I did!

When I first discovered this series I was thrilled. Finally, a book series that I could read and absolutely loved! The story captivated me and the characters soon became my friends. Adventure, dragons, knights, ladies who aren't helpless, in my opinion the perfect story.
