This book was a very good start to the Last Dragon Chronicles. Chris D'Lacey has taken a story about dragons to a completely different level with an average college student named David Rain.

All David Rain wanted was a room to rent, a quiet clean place to stay while he attended his college classes. But when he arrived he knew that this was what he was not going to get. Once David settles in with Liz and Lucy, he discovers a collection of hand crafted, clay dragons that come to life. David's dragon, Gadzooks, can predict the future, and inspires him to write a story that reveals the truth behind an unsolved mystery about a squirrel. The story has an unhappy ending, and when David realizes the punishment when he is angry. Then David finds Gadzooks crying and near death, and he discovers that these special dragons die when they are not loved. Soon David is forced to save his specially designed dragon and unlock the powers of the fire within
