Bryan Davis is one of the greatest modern fantasy writers of this day. As far as teen fantasy goes at least. He's one of my favorite authors.
A few weeks ago I posted my review of Starlighter, the latest from Mr. Davis. This book begins a new series called Dragons of Starlight that I think I will thoroughly enjoy. Even if you don't like his previous works I'd be willing to bet you'll enjoy this series.
Don't want to take the risk?
Well that's fine. Because Zondervan has graciously given me a copy of this book to giveaway on this blog!

In Starlighter, by bestselling author Bryan Davis, dragons have kidnapped humans from their planet and taken them to theirs, enslaved them, tortured them, and worked them to their deaths. Years have passed since that date, and both worlds have forgotten. Darksphere, the human world, contains an organization that remembers the Lost Ones, those stolen from their world, and seeks the gateway to the dragon planet. But these people are mocked and scorned. On Starlight, the dragon world, those who remember and hold to the belief that they are not meant for slavery are similarly mocked.
But the lost will be found.
Bryan Davis again pens a beautiful, fast passed, epic tale of four teens' determination to do that which they know to be right. The plot was exhilarating, the characters were very clearly defined, and the writing was excellent as usual. Mr. Davis did what is every writer's goal--he created an adrenaline laced plot with believable characters. Given any line of dialogue I could recite the character that would have said it, each one was that real, and the story kept me thinking late into the night.
Also, this book is clearly a story filled with Christian themes. The basic plot line is a beautiful tale and challenge of reaching out to the lost. While the themes are clearly there I do believe the story can be enjoyed without noticing or understanding the allegory.
I'd recommend this book to any young adult, 10 and up. An excellent read for teens and adults.
And a cliffhanger to boot.
