      I was tempted to give this five stars for entertainingly bad I mean, I have gotten a great deal of enjoyment from reading this, just not for the reasons the author intended.Now, before I get any further, allow me to say that I think the concept had potential dragons are cool when done well, and the idea of them hiding out in human form is interesting, etc But the execution waspoor The characters are about as well developed and intriguing as oatmeal and they re named Billy Bannister and Bonnie Si [...]

    3. Tracey Dyck on said:

      This is at least my fourth time visiting Billy, Bonnie, and Walter in Castlewood and every time it s like returning to old friends A tale of a boy coming to grips with his father s hidden past, friends finding courage, Arthurian legend reaching through history, and a remnant dragonkind fighting to survive, I found myself remembering certain scenes with perfect clarity Others surprised me I d forgotten things like Professor s crazy driving, the jar of shark teeth, what Mr Foley looks like little [...]

    4. Joanne on said:

      Oh, this book is just awful It has a wonderful idea that dragons long ago had to take on human form in order to survive, that some of them are good and some of them are evil, and that they re hunted down in modern times by slayers who think that all of them evil But the book is just badly written The characters aren t real, their emotions aren t real, their dialogue is stilted there s an English character who walks around saying, Old chap , the settings aren t real I don t think the author has s [...]

    5. Jamie on said:

      I really enjoyed this It was many years ago when I first read this and I wasn t sure my opinion would be the same Overall it was A lot of fantasy some chase and intrigue and a dash of light comedy and good action The pace is busy from beginning to end I was quickly drawn into the characters and their predicaments They are easy to connect to My favorite characters are the enigma Mr Hamilton and Walter who is an amazing best friend on many levels Some prophecies spoken in the the time of Merlin an [...]

      Raising Dragons is a fantasy by Bryan Davis about two kids Billy and Bonnie They are fairly normal teenagers except for one thing Billy breathes fire, and bonnie has wings Bonnie already knows one of her parents was a dragon, Billy finds out on his own when he blows at a smoke detector and sets it off They also find out that someone very close to them is a dragon slayer When they crash land out of a plane they are stranded on the top of a deserted mountain with the slayer Will they make it out a [...]

      As a mother of young children and a lover of fantasy this book is a winner for me Knowing this is a book geared toward children and teens, I read it keeping my eyes open for appropriateness and characters with integrity I can say in that department, I give it a full 5 stars This book is one I would gladly sit down and read to my children 6 10 without any qualms The books characters exhibit qualities and traits that I would like to see developed in my own children and the story is one that grabs [...]

    8. Kris on said:

      The writing is slow and overly descriptive, so stunted that I just couldn t get into the pacing of the book Davis spends so many words explaining ideas, instead of letting things happen through dialogue The characters felt very juvenile and underdeveloped, even though they were teenagers and should have been getting into deeper darker issues.This book felt like the cliche coming of age story with the misfit young hero, elderly guide, and innocent heroine Someone in another review described Davis [...]

    9. Davian Ross on said:

      This book is simply amazing I picked it up and started reading not knowing how i would feel about it It seemed weird how dragons could be incorporated into a christian story and still be a good thing without contradicting itself But it was great, its one of those books which puts you into the story and sets the scene and all so you are there with the characters Well it starts off describing Billy and Bonnies life They appear to be normal kids living in Montana but they are apart of a long line o [...]

    12. Lydia Dyslin on said:

      Raising Dragons by Bryan Davis is the first book in the Dragons in Our Midst series Like I said in one of my many status updates for this book, this isn t normally the type of book I d read However, I ordered my friend to read the first Love Comes Softly book, and that isn t normally the kind of book she reads So I felt obligated to read it when she told me it was good So there s a little backstory for you ANYWAY In this book, a teenager, Billy, learns a secret his parents have been keeping from [...]

    15. Lilly W. on said:

      This Book was amazing It was talking about how the parents that were former dragons affected their children s lives since that are all being killed by a slayer that drank a potion to live forever When Bonnie the daughter of a former dragon finds a boy named Billy And what brought them together The dragon part of them brought them together, with Bonnie s Dragon wings and Billy s fiery breath they came together to fight off the slayer and hopefully find out about their parents past.Now along this [...]

      What I thought of it Raising Dragons is the awesome first book to the Dragons in our Midst series by Bryan Davis It is a Christian fantasy book with some medieval times mostly later in the series and I happen to love all those genres.Anyways, onto the review I love all of this book After reading this, I kept hoping that at least one of my parents was a dragon, but that hasn t happened yet I d love to list all my favorite parts, but it would be way to long and full of tons of spoilers.Bryan Davis [...]

      Got dragon breath Raising Dragons is the first novel in the Dragons in Our Midst series by Bryan Davis.Billy has dragon breath, and he didn t just forget to brush his teeth His breath scalds his own fingers, burns his mother s cheek when he kisses her goodbye, and sets off the school fire alarm Despite his attempts with soda, water, and breath mints, nothing seems to cool his breath The answer to his concerns comes when his father reveals a long kept secret he is a dragon who has been hiding for [...]

    22. Amy on said:

      I will just start off by saying, I LOVED THIS BOOK I have been reading quite a bit lately, and this book struck me like none has in a while I am not sure if it is the style of writing by the author, the characters, the setting, the topics, or maybe that magical element the author just happened to nail There was plenty going on in this book, so I never felt there were any parts that dragged along We went from one scene to the next, with something happening in every chapter, but not the their live [...]

    23. Leah Good on said:

      The writing in this story and subsequent books is amazing Bryan Davis keeps the story moving at rip roaring speed and you never want to put it down At the end of book one, you can t get to book two fast enough That said, books that combine other worldliness i.e Dragon s that can turn into humans with real world God and salvation always make me a little uncomfortable I feel doctrinally safe in worlds like Narnia that are separate from ours and allow our world s rules to stay the same while allow [...]

      Raising Dragons is the first book in the Dragons In Our Midst series This book started a long journey for me Three years ago a friend lent me this exciting book, and I have been part of its adventure ever since Raising Dragons is filled with an exhilarating plot line, taking you through the struggles of two individuals as their dragon heritage keeps them on the run Billy Bannister and Bonnie Silver display the ever important lesson of sacrifice Billy s courage even through his doubts and Bonnie [...]

    25. Rachel's Book Reviews on said:

      This book was excellent I have read it several times It has fantasy but later on it adds a dash of science fiction Not to mention there are some pretty funny HILARIOUS characters It had a very thorough plot and an ending that is to die for I definitely recommend this series There is also a prequel and sequel series, but they are not necessary to read before or after this series I have not yet read them , although I intend to rachelsbookreviews q z

    26. Captain on said:

      This is a very solid book written by, in my opinion, one of the greatest Christian authors of our generation Mr Davis beautifully weaves together the story of two teens, Billy and Bonnie, and follows their adventures throughout most of their lives This book is simply the beginning Yet, at the same time, this is a great beginning that draws you in quickly and never lets you go I once met Mr Davis in person, and he told me this book wasn t written well I d have to disagree with him on that because [...]

    27. Sariah on said:

      so basically, i just finished this book today, and it is absolutely amazing its written by a christian author who ties Christianity into an amazing adventure this story is modern time but not at the same time i recommend it to whoever is a fantasy lover like me join Billy and Bonnie in their crazy, adventurous world

    28. Sullivan Elenburg on said:

      This first installment in this wonderful 12 book series is absolutely amazing The plot is very great that twists and turns and makes your feelings about each character, some good some bad, increase with each page of nerve racking excitement The premise is very good and the characters all make their way into your heart one way or another I love this book and I extremely recommend it to all readers and non readers.

    29. Mangy Cat on said:

      I m a big fan of crossing genres as well as teen fiction This was a great combination of the two I love the realism of the characters and how they deal with their problems Also, the secondary characters were very fun How can you not like Walter
