About the Author

Eisley Jacobs has been writing, since preschool, tentative strokes on paper that made her parents smile with pride. In high school, Jacobs discovered what would become a lifelong love for the written word. It was not until fifteen years later that she began to pursue that love in earnest. Jacobs now writes Middle Grade Fantasy and YA Fantasy. In her free time she homeschools her children and plays with cameras, pencils and paper, musical notes and glue (aka, she is crafty).

More About the Author

Eisley Jacobs lives in Shingle Springs, California with her three children and husband.

Eisley actively writes the characters that stroll through her head. The first YA Novel she completed was in high school, but some how got lost in the shuffle into real life. While studying at college, stories began to plague her mind and she tried her best to keep them at bay while she did more important things like... like... who are we kidding. Her grades suffered because the voices wouldn't stop. So instead of going insane, she wrote.

It wasn't until 2005 that Eisley realized her love of words needed to go somewhere besides the bottom drawer of the file cabinet. She began to write a young adult fantasy series (which is still a work in progress) and continued until she had two complete books and feverishly worked to complete book three.

However in 2010, a blue dragon named Deglan interfered in her attempts to finish the final book in the YA series and thus BORN TO BE A DRAGON was hatched. The novel was written in less than two months and almost a year after completion, found a home in the hearts of children across the globe.

Now, with the third book in the DRAGONS FOREVER series out, DRAGONS OF THE DEEP out she is actively working on the sequel to the YA Sci-Thriller, PIECES OF ME then plans to finish up her epic fantasy YA, Rings of Time.

For someone who loves the children's through young adult market, books written for a middle grade audience are some of the most fun to read. The target audience is always ready to suspend disbelief and allow their imaginations full reign and yet are looking for some more complex issues to encounter between the pages. As a child, I loved to lose myself in a book. To enter the world the author devised and play the words on the page like a movie in my head... and, I'll admit it, I still do. For those moments, the characters are friends and foes, and their world becomes real.

"Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup." ~ Anonymous Dragon

I love this quote -- it makes me giggle every time I read it. Jacobs has the quote on the title page of the book, and it gives us the flavor for what is to come. Deglan is a ten-year-old hatchling, who has not yet taken part in the Rising Ceremony. The Rising Ceremony causes Deglan some concern because his mark, which every dragon receives at birth, has been changing...and it's not supposed to. Deglan is afraid because Lord Edric has been searching for the dragon of legend for as long as Deglan can remember, and the dragon of legend has a mark in the shape of a dragon, instead of the more usual crescent or star. Which is exactly what Deglan's mark has morphed into. Could he be the dragon Lord Edric has been seeking? And if Lord Edric discovers his mark at the Rising Ceremony, will his family be banished... or worse?

Meia, is a ten-year-old foster child who has been bounced from family to family, mainly because of her dreams and nightmares about dragons, until she has finally been placed with a family who take her obsession in stride.

A good read for kids and adults. This book might be classified as YA but I don't think anyone is too old to enjoy a story about dragons, adventure, and true friendship.

I first heard about this book because the author is a friend of a relative and I checked into it. Worth it! I am a grandma and I loved it. Sure, it's written for middle school ages but so was the Hobbit. The story is easy to follow which is not always true when the author changes first person from one character to the other. I bought it on my Kindle and am going to read it again someday soon.

This was such a delightful, fun book to read! Meia's story was so touching that it brought tears to my eyes. And the dragon Deglan and his story was fantastic. This is a novel you're going to want to read aloud to your children and share with them, trust me! Run out and get it now!

I just finished this book on my Kindle App and can't wait for my signed copy to arrive to give to my 9 year old to read! What a wonderful story! It is imaginative, exciting and fun! With two main characters, a boy dragon and a girl human, it is really a book that will appeal to both boys and girls. It tells the story from both perspectives, alternating chapters, and I really like the way that unfolds the story and shows you what they are both thinking/feeling. I couldn't get enough of this and even as an adult can't wait for the next book to come out so I can see where else this story takes me! A must read!

Format: Paperback
Deglan is a ten-year-old dragon who waits for his Rising Ceremony. The ceremony every ten-year-old dragon waits for with anticipation and excitement. Only Deglan isn't like the other dragons. He awaits his rising ceremony with fear. The mark on his arm, the mark that tells his society his place in their world, has begun to change. And the change can only bring danger.

Ten-year-old Meia is a girl, human but not ordinary. She's been shuffled from foster home to foster home always hoping for a family of her own. But the only consistency Meia's finds in her life is her dreams. Every night she dreams of dragons.

The meeting of these two is unlikely and impossible, yet fate intervenes. When they discover each other they realize they share a bond that transcends time and distance.

Born to be a Dragon is a delightful book about friendship and hope. Of fate and choices. Of how it doesn't matter how big or how small or even how old you are, that you CAN make a difference in the world.

As soon as I heard this book was out I couldn't wait to download it and read it on my Kindle. The book is very well written, but still an easy read. It is a good read for almost all ages. The story kept me interested and hooked throughout the entire book. I really enjoyed it and could hardly bare to put it down, I wanted to know what was going to happen next! Now that I have finished it, I cannot wait for the next one and fully intend to share this first one with my nephew :)
