I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Thoughts on ...Raising Dragons by Bryan Davis

Fast paced action. Great imagination. Good vs. Evil with a Camelot twist. Strong faith, in the goodness of people, in the Creator. This is a Christian based world with prayer and faith, some of them just happen to be dragons.

I'm on page 306 and for some reason I looked at the cover... Hey, they got it right! So many times something is missing but not this time. Great cover!


As this is book one of four, I am not expecting a Happy-Ever-After, but I am hoping that all the good guys are safe. Just as I'm sure book two will have more danger and twists so too I believe there will be prayers, "Please God? Help Billy get home."


The book ends. There are loose ends but I am not "dying" to find out what happens. While I still need to know, and care what happens, I can take the time to make breakfast.

A boy learns of his dragon past; a girl has known of hers for years. They combine their faith, courage, and love to overcome evil, a 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 that 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 every day! 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 learn to trust again.
Bonnie, an orphan, tries to find a home, someone to love her, even though 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.

I have the first four books and read them years ago. Probably should reread it's been so long.
