A magical journey through a whole new world... the magic returns for the sixth book in the Last Dragon Chronicles!

In the final moments of Dark Fire, David, Lucy, Tam, Zanna, and the Pennykettle dragons vanish after destroying a trace of dark fire. Now readers will enter a brand-new world that runs parallel to that of Scrubbley and Crescent Lane, called Copernica. Here, firebirds roam the ancient librarium, a museum for books. But when twelve-year-old David and Rosanna accidentally injure one of the firebirds, they are suddenly thrust into a remarkable adventure. The evil Ix have taken over one of the firebirds, turning it to the side of darkness, but the birds have a secret: They know about the existence of dragons.

Read from the Book

From Fire WorldThe firebird responded by leaving the shelves and hovering in the air in front of David. His ear tufts were up and glowing scarlet. The frills around his neck were like spikes of steel. There was anger anger and passion in his gaze, a look that said trespassers were not welcom. David took a deep breath. He had nothing but his honesty with which to shield himself now. He stepped forward, out of the shadows.He braced himself for a burst of fire, but it did not happen. A subtle change occurred in the firebird's expression. It tipped its beak forward and brought its eyes more central to its head. Those eyes grew very round indeed and blinked several times before settling to a stare. Whatever mechanism governed the way they took in light extended to its maximum, making the eyeballs shine like mirrors-until David could see himself reflected in them, playing back like a pin-size movie.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for The Fire Within"d'Lacey's characters are realistic and engaging... A page-turner." -The Horn BookPraise for Icefire"Chris d'Lacey's writing is sometimes exciting and sometimes silly. But that seems in keeping with the worlds he created-one that seems almost real and one that is beyond imagination." -The Washington PostPraise for Fire Star"[T]he story, with its involving and thought-provoking plot full of clever little dragons, mystical polar bears, and spiritual and ecological aspects, will appeal to many fantasy lovers." -School Library Journal
