Publisher Comments:

    Victory in the Circles of Seven came at a great cost to Billy Bannister and Bonnie Silver. A vicious evil was unleashed on the earth that only the dragons can defeat. With Billy’s father, the great Clefspeare, missing, Billy and Bonnie must lead the dragons into war against the Watchers—demonic beings as old as the earth itself. Masters at the art of deception, the Watchers use the deadliest of weapons against mankind. A remnant of wise humans, the friends of the dragons, unite in the struggle against the Watchers. With heart-stopping action, the final battle between dragons and their enemies comes to a climax. But in order to win the war, at least one of the dragons must die.

    As the story ends, Billy and Bonnie are faced with the greatest decision of their lives. Will they keep the dragon traits that have cost them so much danger and heartache, or will they turn to normal human life and end the slayers’ lust for their blood forever.

Synopsis:

Tears of a Dragon is the fourth installment in the Dragons in our Midst® series. This contemporary fantasy gives young readers all the adventure and excitement they love while opening their eyes to great themes such as faith, courage, wisdom, and redemption. Compared to The Chronicles of Narnia for its spiritual power and The Lord of the Rings for its depth of scope, this series has the makings of a classic.

Synopsis:

A vicious evil threatens mankind, and only the dragons can defeat it. With their lives hanging in the balance, Billy and Bonnie lead the dragons into the final battle between the dragons and the slayers.

Just when I thought Bryan Davis couldn’t possibly have any more ideas left for books out come Tears of a Dragons. Reading other reviews on Dragons in our Midst book you’ll notice most say the same thing: YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PUT THIS BOOK DOWN! And that’s because it’s true! With Tears of a Dragon and all the other book in this series. Make sure you get the whole series at once because once you finish one of the books you won’t ant to wait any longer to start the next one!

He's done it again! Yet 10 times better. The powerful conclusion to Dragons in Our Midst is amazing.
The final war against evil has come and the reader is placed right in the middle.
If you are thinking at all about getting this...do it.

After the release of hundreds of Watchers from Hades, the remaining nine dragons prepare for war against overwhelming odds. But when Billy and Bonnie enter Dragon’s Rest in search of Billy’s father, tragedy strikes. Even when the battle’s over, dragons and anthrozils face the toughest choice of their lives. Remain dragons, or become fully human? This ending made me cry. I really enjoyed the whole series and was sad to see it draw to a close. But the adventures continue with Oracles of Fire
