A lot of people were complaining that Conway doesn't include this or that, but I can tell that they haven't read much of the book at all.
Angela Hunt
Next, the data tables and other information in the appendices were very well-presented and well-formatted.

Format: Paperback
I was attracted to this book because of the artwork and because of a love of/fascination with dragons... however, I was rather disappointed.
I found the first couple of chapters about the history of dragons to be interesting. But once it got to the rituals I couldn't help thinking this was yet another Wicca 101 rewrite of every other book she's written - with dragon names thrown in where she would put an element in one book, of a Celtic god in another.
I found most of the book to be useless clap-trap... with the odd sprinkling of useful or interesting information here and there. Probably the only reason I have any affinity for Conway at all is because she places sword in fire and wand for air as I do - tho I find the tools generally unnecessary.
I will say I did buy the Celtic Dragon tarot deck she was involved in... but mostly just because the art is fantastic.

I bought this book, having had it recommended by a friend.. but, it turned out to be a waste of money. The art was nice, and I would like some more specific labels as to where the art came from.. but the information.. now that was definately faulty.
To pick a few points, dragons don't specifically enjoy/want to help/find it necissary to help anyone. They don't all enjoy dancing. They have varying sizes, and full grown dragons CAN be smaller than tigers. Christians aren't the only people to make dragons evil, but other cultures usually didn't have all dragons as being evil. The chinese colour for west is not blue, its white, blue is north-east. They have 8 directions, not including the center. Dragons do not have any need to respect a sword or any other weapon, being astral beings, a physical weapon cannot harm them, though when a dragon soul is born in a physical body (ie; a human) they would respect weapons.. as would anyone else. Dragons are not necissarily elemental, and usually can work with most/all elements. There are hundreds apon thousands of draconic scripts, and not all dragons are literate.. and whats with the gong thing?

This is a good book on history of Dragons, types of Dragons, and also ofcourse Dragon Magick. The books allow you to access Dragons to assist you with certain magick you want to perform. For those who are skeptic and want to prove dragons exists, I have to tell you that unless you are able to access the Astral in any means (sight, sense, or sound)you might be disappointed- but then again, you might uncover something you haven't realized that you had within you. I don't use Dragon Magick much, since at the moment I don't need to reall bother them with my Low Magick. If you plan to do Powerful Magick and need help, this might be a good book to guide you to ask for help from the Dragons.

Format: Paperback
I have read quite a few 'Craft' books but this one ranks up in a term used locally as "Crystal Weenie". The book gives great imagery for using Dragons in Ritual but to make such claims as 'Dragon Language'(which just happens to have the same number of letters as in the english language) is a little much. The charts for incense and gems have nothing to do with the book and the same charts(or the like) have been in many other books, mainly the ones about incense. I would suggest using the book for ideas about Rituals but never as a 'branch' of Craft in itself.

Format: Paperback
Ever since I was in 6th grade, I've loved dragons. Not to mention, any so-called "mythical" beings. In 6th grade I came across D.J. Conway's book "Mythical, Magickal, Mystical Beasts and How to Invite Them Into Your Life" and it created a turning point for me. That's when I decided that my spiritual path was to work Magick, become Pagan/Wiccan. I also got her book "Animal Magick" because I love animals, and that showed how to do lots of animal rituals and meditations, along with chants as well.
Eventually I came across "Dancing with Dragons" and it is my favorite D.J. Conway book to this date. I've noticed that many reviewers here talk about not having swords or athames, therefore unable to do the rituals. What they didn't write is that D.J. Conway wrote in the book that if you don't have these things you do not need them. You simply use your power hand, the one you write with, and it works just the same. I don't have a sword, or a charcole burner for incense, but things work all right for me. Sometimes you have to substitute. This book is a must have, for both beginners and advanced magickal practicers. After all, I got the book about 2 years ago and tomorrow, Jan. 31, I turn 15.

Format: Paperback
The book tells you about history of dragons, tools you can use, spells that you recite, etc. It's pretty neat. The reason I gave it a three is because a friend commented that a lot of the stuff she has written down were too glamorous. You don't need to do all that to contact a dragon. I've noticed towards the book, she was rushing with "start with the spell I told you earlier and say the stuff below." and sometimes I don't know if it meant to add or to replace a few things, etc. And finally, what made me knock it down to three stars was she never gave out anything to contact guardian dragons (It caught my attention and I wanted to attempt contacting one since she said they were fun and mischievous). I saw a little chant but again, the friend pointed out that chant was no way to contact them. I feel, overall, this book is missing a few things to make it complete. However, at the end of the book, you'll find detailed information about herbs and stones that you can use in your rituals.
