Ferno the Fire Dragon: Book 1
Strange things are happening in Tom’s village. First, the horses were attacked. Then, the river dried up. Now, the last of the crops has mysteriously burnt to the ground. Everyone is terrified. But Tom isn’t afraid. He’s always dreamed of a quest-a real quest!-and vows to go to the king and bring help for them all. But Tom soon learns that his village is not the only one in trouble. People are in trouble all over the kingdom. Hope is nearly lost. That is, until Tom is sent on the greatest quest of all–the Beast Quest.

All the fish have fled and no boats dare to pass. Tom and Elenna meet a mysterious stranger who may hold the key for tracking down the monster.

Tagus the Night Horse: Book 4
A mysterious force has been creeping over the plains of Avantia. The animals are stampeding, and brush fires sweep the prairie. The farmers are spooked–whispers of a mysterious horseman are spreading as fast as the stampedes. And now that someone has disappeared on a cattle drive, suspicion runs high.

Tom and Elenna speed to the plains to stop Tagus the Night Mare before he can do any more damage. But Tom ends up in the wrong place at the wrong time and is mistakenly thrown in jail. Can he win the trust of the people–and his own freedom–before it’s too late to stop Tagus?

These books are appropriate for ages 9-12. Want a student’s perspective?
Beast Quest is a really good series that I’ve read. There are 12 books in the series. If you like good adventure with a lot of action, this is the perfect series.

The series follows, Tom, Elenna, Storm and Silver. Tom is a Blacksmith apprentice. His dad was a great Knight, who died, and now Tom lives with his uncle. Elenna has a pet wolf, Silver, and ran away to go on this risky journey with Tom. Storm is Tom’s white Stallion who’s very useful. And Aduro is the Wizard that gave Tom all of his special items, including his sword, 3D map and shield.

Their journey in the first six books is to free all of the beasts that Malvel, an evil wizard, has captured – Ferno the Fire Dragon, Sepron the Serpent, Cipher the Mountain Giant, Tagus the Night Horse, Tartok the Ice Beast and Epos the Winged Flame. In the next six books, Malvel makes six new beasts. I’m not going to tell you who they are.

I hope you enjoy the 12 books in the series. They’re reallllly good. It’s just like you’re in the movie – you’re right there in the movie. It’s like Lord of the Rings!
