The bond between dragon and octopi
By Yvonne
Arak has once again returned to the seas, this time to find the mythical Ice Dragons. Accompanying him on his journey is fellow dragons healer Dorali and Taron and his best friend and octopus Scree with her mate Orm. Drakor is an Ice Dragon, he has a talent of predicting danger, but when his clan dismisses his warnings, he goes off to look for proof. Injured and weak, can the dragons escape the volcano.
It’s been a while since I read Dragon Dreamer, but as soon I started reading this book, I was transported straightaway back to the ocean. Drakor was so like Arak, ridiculed by his clan for being different. However, when he was found by Arak, he found a kinship. Seeing Arak a highly thought of member of his group, gave Drakor hope.
With the pending eruption from the volcanoes, this story is one big adventure. Arak and Scree are working to a deadline to rescue their families, but it does not help that other species are working against them and Scree must put all her cunningness to use to survive. The addition of the Ice dragons enables the author to add different dragon skills to the story, and you get to learn just how more powerful they are and the uphill struggle Drakor must convince them to move.
The idea of reading is to take you to another world, and this story does that 100%. I got so involved in the story that I forget that I was reading about creatures as they are so human. The fine details add depth to the story, and the picturesque scenes help you visualize how beautiful the ocean is.
As like Dragon Dreamer, this will be perfect to read to your young ones as a bedtime story but will be enjoyed by all ages.
I hope that Arak’s adventures continue.

A wounded dragon, an undersea misfit, and a dangerous dream.
Arak could quest for hours in trance, his mind far away. He was different, a worthless dreamer, and so he was tormented by other young dragons. Arak left the clan, flying far over the sea, and crashed in a fierce storm. Scree, a shape-shifter octopus, found and healed him. A great friendship begins . . .
Arak returns to the Winter Festival, where dragons carve glaciers with fire and toss lightning bolts in the clouds. But a terrible illness strikes the clan. When Zarina falls ill, he vows to save her. Then an undersea volcano erupts, which triggers a towering tsunami and a deadly chain of events. Can Arak use his unique gifts and a dangerous dream to save the dragons?

Fantasy, friendship, and understanding.
By M. Blackeagle

Beautifully written fantasy book that combines the sea creatures with our beloved loveable dragons. Scree (the healer octopus) takes a chance on healing a large beast (Arak the dragon) after he crashes and is terribly wounded a friendship develops that crosses all barriers from language to habitat. Their friendship teaches trust, honor, friendship, and peace. My son read the book after me, and he laughed and giggled and told me he wanted to be like Arak and have amazing adventures and meet new creatures. Now he wants a pet dragon, so I bought him a stuffed one that he has named Arak. I read the story to my 4-year-old daughter to her delight and mine she stayed still to listen and giggle. She wants to be Screw so that she can heal animals. She has tried to convince my husband and me that her toys need to go to the doctor so that they can stay healthy. Lol. I highly recommend this book if you love fantasy. This book teaches as well as entertains

Amazing second book in a fantastic series
October 25, 2016

This book starts out with a bang. Lightning and a Dragon on thin ice, literally. It grabs your attention and never lets go. The descriptions are so detailed that you can picture everything in your mind, but not so detailed that it slows the story. We join our friends Scree, Arak, and their group as they go legend tripping looking for Ice Dragons. So many stories, do they really exist? Scree and Arak will surely find out if the lightning doesn’t strike them first.

I loved the first book as being introduced into a world of Dragons and Octopi was amazing. This book is an even bigger adventure. I hope these books are made into audiobooks as some stories are meant to be told out loud, and these are stories that should be heard. Of course, you need an actual copy of the book also to enjoy the fantastic drawings throughout. This, like the first book, is an awesome adventure for all ages. The new characters introduced are fresh and add to the journey. Drakor is a complex and fascinating addition. The characters draw you into their enchanting and sometimes dangerous world. Scree and Arak remain my favorite characters. The pace is perfect. It is truly a journey that makes you wonder what will happen next. I can not recommend this book enough.

Another amazing story by JS Burke!
By Pygmy Amazon Reviews
Dragon Lightning (Dragon Dreamer Book 2)

The golden dragons and their octopi friends go in search of the legendary ice dragons. Another amazing story by J. S. Burke. Her stories are about compassion, friendship, dreaming big and striving to accomplish the improbable.

After reading through this second Dragon Dreamer book, I am convinced that her books would make a great addition to elementary school libraries and classrooms. There is so much education slipped into this fun, youthful, fantasy world. Science and exploration along with environmental issues, cultural diversity and acceptance, charity and generosity, political systems with different leadership structures engaging in cooperative trade agreement treaties, etc… all in an enjoyable, entertaining package of dragons and octopi with a squid tossed in for good measure. The adventure is expertly penned and draws in even the mature reader. The older reader recognizes the educational value and the children are introduced to valuable life lessons in a fantasy world of intriguing adventure and interesting characters.

Truly refreshing and enjoyable.

First, this book is a real page-turner. Yes, it is written for a younger audience, but this reader feels it is best read by all ages. This author has touched the heart of all things real: friendship, honor, caring, and kindness.

This story revolves around Arak, a young dragon who is tired of being told what to do and picked on like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer was in his story. Arak ventures out to prove himself but alas, he gets in a bit of a mess. To the rescue comes Scree, an octopus of unbelievable understanding. And the adventures begin, some good, some bad, but all meaningful.

As for the writing in this book, I was amazed. The amount of information given to the reader is crafted so well you feel as if you are in this world. Character development and communication are refreshing and clear. Also, the underwater world which this author is very familiar with is expressed and explained to give the reader a clear understanding and appreciation for marine life.

I will personally recommend this book to all readers.

The Most Unique, Fully-Realized Dragon Books Ever

This is the second Dragon Dreamer book. If you haven’t read the first one, you can still completely enjoy Dragon Lightning. If you have read the first one, you’ll be happy to meet your favorite characters again when they return for a new adventure that introduces the legendary ice dragons.

Drakor, an ice dragon, is the hero of this new story. Coming from a dragon culture where might makes right, he is burdened with foresight that a disaster awaits his island, but no one will listen to him because he’s not the strongest. Can he, with the help of his new friends and the new skills they share with him, help him to save his clan?

So, why the claim that this series is, has the most unique and fully-realized dragons? The world-building has scientific, instead of magical, underpinnings. The author creates complex cultures for her creatures in which all the details, from how dragon lightning is generated to how the intricate, beautiful dragon nests are created, are explained by physics, chemistry, and biology. Also, the reader gets full immersion into the art, history, social norms and foods of several different cultures on a level that other books/series just don’t match. How these cultures clash and come together in complicated ways is one of the author’s favorite themes.

But, the real question is if this is a good story? Yup. You’ll be cheering for Drakor!

A wonderful fantasy wrapped in an exciting story!!

By Frst1free
I absolutely loved this book!! I won a copy of this book in a contest. As a dragon lover I had to read this book. But as I got started I knew this was a much bigger story than just about a dragon. Arak is a dragon with an usual gift who has been teased by bullies most of his life. He befriends Scree, a lovely octopus who also is a healer for her clan. The friendship these two develop is one we all dream of having. Added into the mix is Arak’s awakening when he realizes that he loves his lifelong friend Zarina. The author does an amazing job bringing the story to life so much that I can picture the beauty that surrounds them. I really would like to see this made into a movie. The life lessons taught in this book are ones that everyone should know and possibly get a refresher course for. I’m no stranger to snowflakes but the ones described in this book in vivid detail makes me want to catch one and examine it under a microscope just to witness the beauty. I can see where this book would appeal to school-age kids as I have my daughter now reading it; plus she is also reading it to the patients at a nursing home she volunteers at. They are loving it and always eager to know what is going to happen next!! Kudos to this author for building this magical world and reeling us all in for the ride of a lifetime!!Line video
