Stabbed. Burned by a dragon. Abandoned for the windrocs to pick over.

The traitor Ra'aba tried to silence Hualiama forever, but he reckoned without the strength of a dragonet's paw and the courage of a girl who refused to die. Only an extraordinary friendship will save Hualiama's beloved kingdom of Fra'anior and restore the king to the Onyx Throne. Flicker, the valiant dragonet. Hualiama, a foundling, adopted into the royal family. The power of a friendship which paid the ultimate price.

This is the tale of Hualiama Dragonfriend and a love which became legend.

Amazing!

This book is simply amazing! I have to say I never thought I'd fall in love with a book like I did Eragon however this book is simply awesome! the way the characters come to life and makes you want to read more and more is simply incredible. I won't spoil anything but I will say if you read this book you will be brought into a world that is like no other! 5 stars all the way through and I can't wait to read more in this series and the other books this author has written! so recap if you love eragon then you will fall in love with this series as well! Marc Secchia you're giving my favorite book series a run for it's money and I can't wait to read more.

If Shakespeare and Disney had a child

I admit to using a dictionary several times. The author uses a lot of big rarely used words poetically arranged in a way that would make Shakespeare proud .
However the story appeals to my inner childs earliest fantasies. About a girl with obpressive parents who befriends a dragon and goes on a magical adventure to restore the balence between good and evil. If this book were a disney movie it would be a favorite for young girls everywhere!

Very Disappointed

Any additional comments?

I had high hopes for this book, but was very disappointed. I was going to return it after the first couple of chapters, but decided to listen on. I do like the overall story line (the reason I kept listening), however the actual writing leaves a lot to be desired. The writing feels choppy, some things don't make sense, for instance; the setting is a series of islands, yet the main character doesn't know what an ocean is, what kind of islands are these? It's never explained. Plus I know you want a main character to be accomplished, but a 15 year old that is a beautiful singer, dancer, engineer, pilot, sword master and more seems a bit much. To top it all off the ending was very disappointing, wish I would have returned it.

Relistened to last few chapters

Excellent book I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys stories about dragons and humans but be sure and have the tissue ready by the end of the story

best dragon book since pern series

What did you love best about Dragonfriend: Dragonfriend, Book 1?

Dragonfriend (Dragonfriend #1) by Marc Secchia is such an awesome dragon book, probably the best since The Pern series came out. I fell in love with it right away and it lasted right through to the sobbing end. I have the next book ready. It had all my emotions on a roller coaster ride, in a good way. What a wonderful imagination! There is humor, suspense, compassion, anger, pain, happiness, joy, love, hate, and so much more in this great fantasy. I felt I was there. There was also fighting, battles, struggles, adventure, and lots of danger to go along with the few pleasant moments. Truly, one great book, going in my favorites!

What does Erin Bennett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narration was perfect!

Fantastic Humor

This was a fun read, or rather a listen, as I've listened the to the audiobook. I was very intrigued with the concept of dragons, and smaller dragonettes. I thought it was very clever, and the bickering humor between characters was excellent as well. The narrator did a fantastic job, and the author did a great job creating a world, plot, characters, and emotional attachments. The end was sad, complete, and leaves you wanting more. I look forward to checking out the next book!

Best book of the year

So smoothly written. Hated to put it down. Out of the over 100 audio books I got this year... this one tops the list
