Non-stop excitement from beginning to end. Evening Echo (Cork) If you have a reluctant reader then give these a try although be prepared to invest in an extra bookshelf! Southern Daily Echo This is a really cool adventure book. Guardian Adam Blade describes the beasts with great words and action. AB, aged 8 Wells Journal --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

About the Author

Adam Blade is in his late twenties, and was born in Kent, England. His parents were both history teachers and amateur artists, and Adam grew up surrounded by his father's paintings of historic English battles which left a lifelong mark on his imagination. He was also fascinated by the ancient sword and shield that hung in his father's office. Adam’s father said they were a Blade family heirloom.

Sadly, Adam does not have his own Ice Dragon or Ghost Panther. But he really wishes he did!

More About the Author

Adam Blade is in his late twenties, and was born in Kent, England. His parents were both history teachers and amateur artists, and Adam grew up surrounded by his father's paintings of historic English battles - which left a lifelong mark on his imagination. He was also fascinated by the ancient sword and shield that hung in his father's office. Adam's father said they were a Blade family heirloom. As a boy, Adam would spend days imagining who could have first owned the sword and shield. Eventually, he created a character - Tom, the bravest boy warrior of them all. The idea for Beast Quest was born. hen Adam grew up and decided that he wanted to be a writer, he was stuck for ideas - until he remembered the old sword and shield, and the imaginary boy he had created when he was young. Adam decided to bring Tom fully to life so that readers could go on the kind of adventures that he always wanted to when he was that age... And still does, even though he's grown up! When he's not writing Beast Quest books, Adam enjoys visiting museums and ancient battle sites. His main hobbies are fencing and football. He also spends a lot of time at home running around after his two exotic pets - a tarantula named Ziggy, and a capuchin monkey named Omar. These little rascals were the inspiration for two of the Beasts that Tom faces on his Quest - Arachnid and Claw. adly, Adam does not have his own Fire-Dragon or Horse-Man. But he really wishes he did!

My six year old son "hated" reading, even when read to.

I bought this at the book fair, trying to find an exciting adventure series for my son. This is the first book he truly could not put down. I read the first chapter to him and then he continued to read, after dinner, in the tub, before bed, until he finally finished it that same evening. It was great to see him enjoy reading so much. We are buying the next one in the series now.

I have to admit I was very nervous when my son (2nd grade, RL 3) picked out this book. I wanted to read it with him to make sure it was appropriate. It is about a 12 year old boy who is saving the kingdom from beasts that are destroying the land. The beasts are usually the protectors of the ancient kingdom but a sorcerer has put enchanted collars around their necks so they have started to do his bidding. The thing I really appreciate about this series is that the hero never has to kill the beast - only unlock their collars and then the beasts become friendly again. A great read for any child who loves adventure.

I am typing this review for my nine year old son. Here are his exact words. "I expect people to read this book which are eight and up. It is an extremely good book. I am just starting to read the second one. The book is about a boy freeing a dragon. He meets a girl named Elenna. Elenna has a pet wolf. They have a great adventure. I hope to get the rest of the books"

My son does not like reading very much but these really keep him interested. The only problem is they keep making more so I have to buy all of them The good thing is they are long enough to get your money's worth and if the whole series was one book like the Harry Potter series it would be intemidating to slower readers. They would be perfect for a boy age 8-11.

Format: Paperback
Beast Quest: Ferno the Fire Dragon, is a story about a kingdom plauged by a mysterious power that is drying up rivers, destroying villages and crops, and causing mast turmoil. A young boy namd Tom vows several times to defeat this power, and travels to the king's place. What goes on from there is great adventure, quick-paced action, and cool magic.

For 2-3rd graders.

The print is very large, and the story is very simple. But if I was in the lower grades, I would have thought it the next big series. But Adam Blade does a very good job in writing this series.

Definently a series your elementary grade child has been looking for to make reading more fun.

I read the first four books and ended up not liking them because they were to easy. I'm going into fourth grade and I'm into things like Charlie Bone, Harry Potter etc. I do think this book is better for the younger audience, like 7 or 8 years old so me and my mom are going to donate our books of them to charity.

After reading the 'Song of the Lioness' books by Tamora Piece, I picked up this book, and now I'm troubled by how much it resembles 'Song of the Lioness'.

1. Tom. Alanna's borther is also Thom. One letter different.

2. Elenna. Two letters different from Alanna.

3. Malven. In the Song of the Lioness, an evil charactar is named Malven, like in Song of the Lioness.

4. Silver. Faithful is Alanna's pet, and the girl in Beast Quest has the wolf Silver that is nearly the same, like Faithful protects Alanna, and Elenna has Silver to protect her.

I don't like reading books that resemble each other too much. But there are differences. I think Beast Quest is violent, while Song of the Lioness is full of love and adventure. Song of the Lioness is for teens.

Great for kids six to ten, but can be a little violent.

My six year old son "hated" reading, even when read to. He was feeling frustrated that he couldn't do it (he's only six), but he wanted to read the chapter books his older brother did. Magic Tree House and other series didn't engage him. While on vacation in Virginia, my wife found the first of the series at a local Barnes & Noble. There was a 3 for 2 sale, and my son liked the cover (both sons talk about the details of each cover).

Now he can't stop reading them (actually, having them read to him). He gets upset when it's time for bed. And, he's become really interesting in reading (he has a great first grade teacher, too).

What's interesting is that we've lent the books to two other "reluctant readers" we know and both can't get enough. One is in third grade and the "easy" books were too dull. My fifth grade son, who enjoys Percy Jackson and is an excellent bookworm, had to plow through them all as soon as we get new ones.

Although formulaic, it is not quite as obvious as Magic Tree House (our older son is a HUGE Jack and Annie fan, and we love those books, too). Each monster is different, with a different danger and a different solution.

Beast Quest also has a simple-yet-decent mythology. Both of my sons watched Beyblades for a while and spent a year breathing the Star Wars universe. There are plenty of characters and lore and rules that make the universe work. Beast Quest satisfies their need for a complete mythology that grows along with the series.

There is a lot of action and plenty of danger. Some reviewers have mentioned the violence in the books, and I don't disagree. The first series is mainly action, but people die in the later series.
