Product Description

Review

Dan Stevens's excellent rendition of the adventures of Beatrice and Daniel Cook as they attempt to prevent the evil Ignatius Crook stealing the dragon's eye and becoming Dragon Master is hopefully the first of many audiobook narrations by him. Dragons galore, interesting adults and feisty children are beautifully combined, so great listening. (Kati Nicholl DAILY EXPRESS)

The wonderful thing about Audiobooks is that they enable the listener's imagination to be used to full effect, even more so than in paper as the voices of the narrator and accompanying sounds add to the atmosphere. This book is full of vivid description and takes you deep into the world of Daniel and Beatrice Cook, apprentice Dragonologists. Mystery, tension and lashings of fantasy make this an unmissable adventure. (www.FromBumptoGrump.co.uk)

Book Description

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy and fun 5 Dec 2006
Format:Hardcover
I am a bit biased I suppose... I have been a big fan of Dragonology and everything that has to do with dragons for years and years, so when the first story of Dr. Drake came out I was ready to gobble it up. It is written for the younger audience, and the story could have more depth and a bit more of an exciting storyline. But all in all it is fun to read and has loads of cool dragonology facts. Not tomention the absolutely stunning illustrations and look of the book in general.

Not the best story I ever read, but never the less worth a look. Young boys will love it for sure!

Format:Hardcover
I love the Ology World books, especially Dragonology, and I think it's even better when you're a big kid who has had to accept that dragons don't exist. Dragonology takes the subject of dragons utterly seriously, detailing different species, behaviour and tips on how to track and train them. The Dragon's Eye is the first in a spin off series of YA fiction novels and ever since I read Dragonology I have been a little bit intrigued about what these books have to offer.

Well, quite a bit actually. I think the real strength in The Dragon's Eye is the fact that it's based on a pseudo-factual book, Dragonology. There's a great sense that the book is based on real life events involving real creatures because there's a boxful of literature that says so. The fantastical becomes the actual. It pulls on all the information you can find in the Dragonology books and gives it a storyline, and if you're lucky enough to have the Ology books, you find yourself using them as some kind of reference guide despite the fact that you know it's all made up. If you haven't read Dragonology then fear not because The Dragon's Eye is not dependent on it, you can still easily understand and enjoy the story as everything is explained. In fact, if you don't know anything about dragons you're in for a deep end learning experience as the lead characters don't know anything to begin with either but end up experts.

The language has a wonderful Victorian quaintness about it, giving it an authenticity of the period and adding to the realism. Mixing this with the fantastical element of dragons makes for a great adventure story. I think my only real niggle is that it can be a bit too quaint at times.
