From the Back Cover

School is over for the summer! All Jared wants to do is sleep, swim, and delve into as many computer and video games as possible. Life has other plans for him, however, and everything transforms one fateful afternoon when Jared accompanies his mom to an antique shop.
He is inexplicably attracted to a magnificent silver dragon statue with eyes that glow like precious rubies. When Jared brings the statue home, he initiates a chain of events that catapults him and his friends Griffin and Chase into a great adventure solving the mystery of the crimson-eyed dragon. Joined by Chase's sister Amber, the teens discover that the statue holds a vital clue to the previous owner's life. They embark on an innocent quest, but the secrets that unfold lead them into unimaginable danger that could ultimately destroy all of their lives.

This was a great light read for any adult and a fantastic read for younger audiences as well. While the characterizations were a little flat I still enjoyed the story. The author gave a good deal of information on dragon folklore that I found very interesting. For an adult this story is predictable and may lack in some excitement. For the more youthful reader, I think this book is a great adventure to get lost in.

I hadn't realised when I started reading this that it was really aimed, in my opinion, at a younger readership than me! Once I made the mental adjustment, I really enjoyed it. It's a nice little mystery adventure, with a little love story and some sweet teen romance thrown in.

I liked it because these kids were decent and looked after each other. There was no bad language, though the dialogue was a times a little clunky, it was a very readable story and I wanted to see how it ended.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this to my 12 year old niece, she would really enjoy it. There is enough detail about teenage shopping and eating habits to keep her interested!

My first read for 2011. I had the honor of hosting this book for Kindle Kisses a while back, so I thought I better go ahead and read it myself. So glad I did. This was a really fun book. It kind of reminded me of The Hardy Boys or Encyclopedia Brown, with a fun mystery, and a cast of curious young adults. The plot was well thought out and the whole book was entertaining. I think it would be a great book for all ages. I'm interested in seeing if Ms. Trink decides to turn this into a series. I think it would do really well.

The Crimson Eyed Dragon has many elements necessary for an intriguing teen mystery. There's hidden treasure, some bad guys hot in pursuit and some very nice interactions among the protagonists. In the best tradition of teen adventure stories, the characters in The Crimson Eyed Dragon are energetic self-starters, though they sometimes get distracted by swimming pools and young love. Whether they're biking around town, trawling the mall or hitching a ride to an old house with its promise of treasure, they're always up to something. There's a lot of plot to this story, and it's well put together. I also liked the characters' relationships with each other.

The drawbacks are some awkward dialogue along with a lot of pages that read like encyclopedia entries. Granted, the information those pages contain are significant, but a more skilled writer could have incorporated the facts into the narrative without making it seem like a Wikipedia entry. Adults can enjoy the very best books for young people without feeling like they're reading a kids book. Unfortunately this is not one of those. This writer shows much promise even if the book is a bit of a disappointment. It's still a bargain for the price if just to find out some interesting information about rubies and dragons.

I read about three pages and then deleted it it. I'm all for people going the indie route in publishing. I won't , however, read a book that is not ready for publication. In those few pages I read...
Point of view errors
Editing mistakes, such as referring to the characters by the first name at first and then the full name later
Formatting errors
This is a good first draft. Hope the writer tackles making it great some time.

I read this book several months ago and thought it might be an option for getting my nephew more involved in reading. Is it a literary masterpiece or on the level as a Harry Potter book? NO, but I do think that it works because of the adventure, mystery and plot a boy might enjoy. My 12 y/o nephew really liked the book, he gave it 4 stars. I give it 3.5 stars.

A boy buys a crimson-eyed dragon statue which puts him in the path of men who are trying to retrieve the statue. The character development was good and the adventure and planning of strategy was interesting. There was some slightly more teen, than tween scenes, but my nephew skips those parts that deals with girls. Some of the behavior did not seem in keeping with how the characters were developed. The dialogue between the characters sometimes seemed stilted or unnatural. Even with these minor quibbles, I did find the book entertaining and knew the adventures and mystery would appeal to my nephew.

There were occasional unnecessary elements, almost like fillers, that did not progress or enrich the storyline. Some of the events in the book are also totally unrealistic, especially at the end regarding their travel to find out the details of the mystery.

Overall, this might be a good book to get a reluctant reader interested in opening a book.

15 year old Jared and his friends find clues that lead them on an adventure. If you have a middle school/junior high aged child that enjoys adventure stories this book will be a win! I paid .99 for it and found it worth its wages. I am passing it on to my 11 and 13 year old sons now. I am certain they will love it.

mechanics: it is a good middle school book- it leads you a step at a time. It explains a lot of stuff as it goes along. Some folks might find this a real turn off, but for the 5th-7th grade reader just entering the world of novels for fun it is a big help.
