"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.Read more ›
Born to be a Dragon is one of those gems that I plan to share with my own kids. Set in a sort of "Alternate Reality" where dragons and magic are real, Eisley Jacobs has crafted a story that is on one hand pure fantasy, but on the other easy for children to identify with. The dragons are as big and as powerful as in any series, but what sets this book apart is the protagonist, Meia, is so likeable and easy to identify with that it was hard for me to put this book down.
You see, Meia is different in a lot of ways. But two things really set her apart from the other kids at school: 1.) She is a foster child that never knew her parents at all and 2.) All she talks, thinks, or even dreams about are dragons. And everyone knows, there is no such thing as dragons! Her last foster family definitely didn't understand, and this new foster family doesn't even seem to want to give her a chance, they've already called her case worker at least once. But soon Meia comes to realize that for her dragons are not just her obsession, they are her destiny.
This first book in the series is really promising and I'm looking forward to more. The book is completely stand-alone; it is a complete story with a great climax. However after reading, I'm sure you'll be just like me, waiting to continue the journey of Meia and her friend Deglan.
But that was more like the pretty icing-flowers on the cake. The story itself was fantastic. A dragon with a mark that makes him a threat to the leader of the dragon clan. A girl who dreams of dragons. A lot. To the point where it gets her bounced from one foster home to another for being 'too weird'.
Both characters struggle to embrace their uniqueness without being ostracized from their worlds. As the story moves on and their lives come together, they grow as individuals and become close because of who they are, not what.
I enjoyed the unique approach to dragons in this world, and how the fantasy aspects mingled with a reality I'm already familiar with. This was a fun read, and would be a fantastic book for pre-teen kids who want to give fantasy a try, but aren't too big on other-world settings.
