DRAGONS OF STARLIGHT
By Bryan Davis
The black egg has and the blind dragon prince - Taushin is ready to fulfill the prophecy. But Taushin needs Koren and her Starlighter abilities to the enable him to resurrect the fallen star Exodus. But can Koren believe anything that Taushin tells her?
Meanwhile Jason continues his journey into the Northlands and the realm of the White Dragon, where, according to Cassabrie, he will be tested. If Jason fails what will be the fate of the "lost ones" on Starlight and what will befall Koren?
Down to the south Elyssa and Wallace are determined to save their friends but instead find a mystery. The body of the previous Starlighter, Cassabrie, is preserved beneath the dragon's Zodiac and for some strange reason Elyssa is drawn to it. There is also a strange book that draws Elyssa into its story so that she can make it visible to Wallace.
On Major Four Randal and Tibalt have troubles of their own. They have been captured while trying to uncover the truth about Governor Prescott's murder and the location of Randall's mother.
Who is lying and who is telling the truth? Can these warriors discover it before everything is lost? What they chose will determine the fate of two worlds!
Summary: Taushin has hatched and his control over Koren is strong. She attempts to flee for a time, but his ability to plant doubt may be strong enough to gain complete control over her. Jason is in the north discovering someone once thought dead and attempting to continue on the mission to rescue the humans from the dragons. Wallace and Elyssa are on a mission to free and feed the starving cattle children. Arxad is finding it more and more difficult to keep his word while still obeying his conscience. The dragons continue to rule and the human slaves continue to suffer as these brave souls seek ways to win the battle once and for all. But there is so much tied up in this mission, so much they still do not understand_
Notes: Confused yet? Bryan Davis packs so much into his story it's hard to keep track of who is doing what. Not only do his characters not know what's right and what's wrong, the reader does not either. But that's partly what makes this book good. The characters wrestle constantly with their doubts and faith. All of the good guys in the story are truly good guys, longing for what's right, longing to serve the Creator, longing to heal the hurt. But what that means is very difficult to figure out. It means questioning, doubting, checking and double checking their hearts, their motives, even whether or not they're even in control of their own thoughts or perhaps could have fallen under enchantment. It's easy to relate to the characters as they struggle to not let doubt gain the upper hand. The quote at the top of this review is long, but does a good job showing what is at the heart of this book. This is the second in the Dragons of Starlight series - I highly recommend not reading this until you have read the first one and perhaps the first in the Master's and Slayers series as well - the companion series focused on the same situation, but from a different character's point of view.
Recommendation Scale: 5/5
James 1:2-6 - Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.
