I love the concept and the imgination behind every sine one of these books. The fact of thought transfer and the unique idea behind each book. If you even look closely the continents are anagrams! orupee is europe, racafi is africa, isaa is asia and areth is earth. I love these books to bits because of the witty twists and the challenge of trying to figure out the riddles for each book is a fun way to interact with the reader!
FIVE STARS!!

Not a bad saga this if you stick with it which I didn't the first time around, but the style of writing is VERY irritating in parts - particularly the much and over-use of the phrase `in a heartbeat' which sometimes features as many as three times in a single paragraph! (at the end of chapter ten for example) Not quite sure why this is, as there are loads of other words and phrases in our wide and varied language that could have been used instead in places; `in a moment', `in a second', `in an instant' - the list is endless... The overuse of `heartbeat' is enough to make the reader quite queasy at times. It's interesting (though bizarre I find) that the writer feels the need to bring in the subjects of `OCD' and phobias into this saga. (any connection there - or simple coincidence!?) It's so noticeable - particularly in chapter seven. It's a phrase/word often used (but nowhere nears as much as this) with Sci-Fi and Fantasy novels in general I find for some reason - not sure what the connection is though...

The story I feel is also a little long - considering there are three more books to follow, and there is only so much that can be written about a journey without repetition - which happens often here. However; all these negatives aside; chapter sixteen makes the wait all worthwhile, as the story really picks up here and does become exciting!

Chapter nineteen could have been skipped for the relevance as far as I was concerned; I'm not keen on battle scenes - read one you've read the lot, but it did not sit well with the novel for me. Ironically, the novel was just about coming into its own when you reach the end of the book, and so prospective buyers should note that the book alone does not sit well by itself. Anybody out there wishing to read this will be better purchasing all four books at the outset - or leaving it alone...

Mark Robson is very underrated and once again proves that he is indeed a good author.

I loved the Darkweaver Legacy and I love stories of dragons and Firestorm doesn't disappoint I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.

Nolita, Kira and Elian are trying to save Dragon-kind. On the other hand Husam is trying to kill Ra. The best part of the book is when Elian saves a man at war and when he saves Longfang, it was very exciting.

Awful, the author says it is for teenagers yet writes like an eight year old, then he remembers who he is writing for a throws in an odd complex word now and again to look clever. Robeson does not know how to write properly and I know there are many children who could write a more complex, exciting and adventurous story than his. The worst author I have ever read a book from.
