A Wearle of dragons set out on an expedition from their home planet and was never heard from again. Now, a new Wearle, determined to find the first, has come to the place its creatures call Erth. Gabrial, who still has the blue scales of a young dragon, is eager to prove himself, and to find his missing father. But when Gabrial causes an accident that results in a baby dragon going missing, he'll have to prove himself worthy of remaining with the Wearle at all.

Across the scorch line, most Hom, or humans, live in fear of the dragons. But a boy named Ren is too fascinated to stay away, and will soon find his fate intertwined with that of the dragons. When conflict erupts between the dragons and humankind, Ren does the unimaginable, crossing into dragon territory. Will he be able to gain the dragons' trust and prevent an all-out war?

NYT bestseller Chris d'Lacey sweeps readers off on an extraordinary adventure bursting with majestic creatures and one boy with the heart of a dragon.

        This book is a fascinating book, with never ending action! Back then, a group of dragons went on an expedition, but sadly, were never heard from again. Years later, a group of new dragons set out, determined to find the missing dragons. One particular dragon, Gabriel, is part of this group, looking for his father to prove himself worthy of being part of the group. Surprisingly, Gabriel causes a baby dragon to go missing, which puts him farther down. This causes Gabriel to prove himself worthy of even being in the group of dragons. Full of twists and turns, The Erth Dragons is a great book for those interesting in dragons and an adventure. I give this book 4 stars.

                    In this book, Gabriel is a young dragon who wants to prove himself to the Elders. Long ago, a Wearle, or community of dragons, traveled to Erth on an expedition from their home planet and mysteriously disappeared. Gabriel is in the second Wearle, which is investigating the disappearance of the first Wearle. Then, Gabriel supposedly causes a rockslide which kills a female dragon, while he is fighting to be her mate with another dragon and ends up on sweep, or guard duty to keep away the hom, or humans, that live in the area. Almost all of the Hom live in fear of the dragons. But, one young boy named Ren isn't afraid of the beasts, and wants peace between the two species. He finds and nurtures the baby of the mother dragon killed in the rockslide Gabriel eventually finds Ren and the baby dragon, and also figures out that a substance that they mine and eat to make their fire stronger is actually causing them to mutate into the monsters that killed off the first wearle, and redeems himself with the other dragons. I loved this book so much! It introduces a fantasy world filled with these almost magical beasts. The plot was intricate and exciting, involving conflicts and political intrigue between the dragons as well as the humans. The human main character, Ren, is brave, trustworthy, strong, clever and caring, and Gabriel, the dragon main character, is brave, strong, smart, and thoughtful. Overall, I really loved this story — it had so much action and suspense, and I literally couldn’t put it down. And I really loved the surprising and dramatic ending!

                      Chris D'Lacey writes yet another good mythical creature related book. The story starts with a duel between a blue dragon Gabrial and a white dragon, dueling for a mate. During the duel, their choice of mate is killed by a rockslide, with her daughter shielded by her body and her son missing. Gabrial is blamed for her death, and he and his mentor are dishonored. Meanwhile, Ren, a young boy in the nearby human village, sneaks into dragon territory, and takes the son of the dead mate. After a dragon kills a villager, the villagers attempt to summon dark dragons that killed a previous group, and the plot thickens as the story continues. With a diversity of cool characters, diverse mythology, and dragons! If you want an interesting fantasy book, I recommend this book.
