Summary

The Dragon Rider returns! 

The last winged horses are on the brink of extinction. At a sanctuary for threatened creatures, the home of a young dragon rider and his silver dragon, three foals lie curled up in their eggs. The foals are in great danger, and the only cure seems to be the sun-feather of a griffin. But griffins, creatures with the head of an eagle and the body of a lion, are a dragon's fiercest enemy, and they live far across the world in the sweltering jungle. A dangerous and exciting adventure begins....

Bring back Brendan Fraser

The music and sound effects are really not necessary. And how did a Ben suddenly develop an accent? Isn’t his character from the US? The transition from the first book to this one was not pleasant, but it is still a beautifully written series.

Amazing book

Great book can't wait for the next one. I was a little hesitant at first when i saw a new voice artist from the last book but they did a great job.

Disappointed!

The story was meandering with way too many characters. The voices sounded too similar. Loved the first book, but this was just terrible.

Good story

I enjoyed the story, though it was more about feelings than the first book. I think Brendan Fraser, who read the first book, was a better narrator.

Narration mistakes are distracting

The first book in this series was really well done. this one, however, is one of those cases where the narration takes away from the story (which has a weak premise to begin with - why can't they build an incubator?). Guinevere's name is pronounced incorrectly by both narrators in this book and by the way why are there two narrators any way? They seem to switch arbitrarily which is distracting. I could do without the music and sound effects too. Books are for imagination.

A very wonderful book.

This book was just as good as the first of the series. I very much liked the return and introduction of new characters. I look forward to the next book.

Wonderful!

I loved the first book and had high hopes for the second, I wasn’t disappointed. When I heard all the extra sound effects I wasn’t sure I’d enjoy the book as much, but they only added to the experience and really mad me feel as if I were there. Wonderful story and marvelous narration!

Dragons are what dreams are made of

Firedrake and Ben are soul mates-- dragon and dragon rider. Now to the next dangerous adventure. 3 beautiful pegus eggs and the father have been brought to a very special hideaway. The only known way for the eggs to hatch was for their mother to lick them. But alias, the mother had been attacked and died, now there is a forlorn stallion that doesn't see any way for his children to hatch. In comes the Greenbeard family. The dad has the young dragon rider, Ben, tell his dragon, Firedrake, that they are going in search of a special feather but not to tell him it is a Griffin feather. For two reasons it is important to keep Firedrake from knowing the truth; one is that Firedrake is expecting babies any time now and he is needed to care for them. The other reason is much more sinister-- Griffins are enemies of dragons.
The two part ways, one believing all is well and the other aware of the potential danger as well as the lye. Firedrake gave Ben one of his scales, in case the boy wants a contact time with him. How little did he know He would be desperately needed to save his dragon rider's life. A group of monkeys attack Ben and his group and the scale is dropped. Dropped with fear and anger mixed. The dragon determines he must go to Ben's aid. His wife insists he take another dragon with him. Tattoo is very excited to be leaving his valley, going on an adventure! Oh boy what an adventure he is getting ready to have.
The group gets saved but many griffins perish and evil monkeys die. The extra special golden feather that is needed to insure the pegasus foals hatch seems to be lost when Tattoo breaths dragon fire on the most evil of griffins turning him to stone.
Not all is lost because one of the talented monkeys shows the dragons that one griffin has golden feathers that she had painted to keep the evil griffin from seeing them. Now he is forced to give up one and the group heads home. Tattoo heads off faster than all the others carrying the precious life saving fluid and his very own dragon rider. He is one very happy dragon.
The fluid is painted onto the eggs..... now we wait.
