Publisher's Summary

The kids at school call Billy "Dragon Breath" for good reason. His breath is bad! It isn't the normal, morning-mouth bad; it's the hot-as-fire, "don't-you-dare-get-near-me" bad. And hearing "Dragon Breath" ringing in his ears, he constantly tries to cool his oral volcano. Trouble erupts when his hot breath sets off the fire sprinklers in the boys' restroom at school, and his parents learn that they've kept their secret for too long. Billy finally discovers the secret. His father was once a dragon!

Now that's a piece of news a guy doesn't deal with every day! Billy feels betrayed, alien, lost. When his father reverts to his dragon form, and they're both chased by dragon slayers, he learns to trust his father again, battling the slayers with weapons of steel and spirit. Bonnie, an orphan, tries to find a home, someone to love her, even though she feels like a freak because of a body feature that she calls a deformity, her dragon wings, inherited from her now dead dragon mother. She discovers that her love for others and her faith in a Creator hold the answers she is looking for.

great story

really good story but there are multiple people how do the voices and Billy's voice is terrible, the actor sounds so bland, other then that pretty good.

Not great, but not bad

Plot works pretty well, though the ending suffers from "sequelitis." Lots of Christian allusions/symbolism, not very well-elucidated but not obnoxious. We listened during a family driving trip; my eight-year-old was enthralled and the adults reasonably entertained.

Revisiting one of my favorite books

A few bugs in the audiobook, but overall still a great story. Wish Davis stuck with multicast, though.

Wonderul

I love this series of books. I read this and the "Oracle's of Fire" series several years ago, but am enjoying the audio versions now.

Fun story, terrible voice acting

Title says it all. Voice actora sound seem to have a hard time matching tone of voice with the situation their characters are in. It's like listening to an elementary school play. Fun story though, i remember reading the series as a child.

Better to read yourself

I loved reading these books but the narrative doesn't do them justice on here. Very sad.

Good Story

missing little bits and pieces from the book... just a few words, but when you are reading along, it throws you off...

An awesome story, with plenty of comedy

For anyone who loves a good story, or dragons, or even legends of King Arthur ,and love to ask what it might be like if dragons DID exist, and how they may have survived. Then this is the book for you. This book quickly became a favorite of mine, and it is a very high recommendation to anyone who loves stories like this.

Wonderful story, average acting, totally worth it!

I thoroughly enjoyed the story, and found the writing it to be enthralling. However the cast could have benefited from higher-quality voice actors or more members.
other than that, the volume balance was sometimes off, but not enough deter me from enjoying the audiobook.
