D’Lacey, Chris & Jay Rain & Fire (Companion to the Last Dragon Chronicles) 304 pgs. Graphia, 2012. $16.99. (Rating: G)
Everything a fan of the Last Dragon Chronicles would love to know, from detailed biographical information about the author, the ideas and inception of the series, character lists, book synopsis, and more.
This sounds great, for a fan, but it’s actually pretty dry. There are only a couple black and white pictures. Fans would really love to see more, like images of the author just having fun, more of the inspiration dragon pottery art, more concept art. Only purchase this book if your students are huge fans.
