This is a wonderful little book, full of daring and adventure, quest for knowledge and a hint of basic theology. Follow Dragonfire, Pilla, and Silverlight as they ride their dragons in an attempt to destroy the vile and evil Nightshade.

We may have a new J.K. Rawlings, and for all of this Max is just 8 years old.

This is his first published book but I look to see many more. The book is available through normal channels but readily available on ISBN 978-0-577-02988-4.


This book is a good read and appropriate for all ages.


Max Schneider is an 8 year old boy with a love of reading. In his first fantasy book Max shows his potential as a great future Author. ...
