The Bones of Makaidos Early Reviews

Here are three reviews from early readers of The Bones of Makaidos. I am very thankful that people are enjoying the book so much.

I could not imagine anyone being able to write a better series than Dragons in our Midst and Oracles of Fire. Yet somehow, Mr. Davis still managed to completely outdo every other book in the Dragons series with The Bones of Makaidos. To call it a stroke of genius would feel like an insult to this unmatchable work of literary art. It takes you on an incredible journey with the amazing characters through mysterious worlds both old and new, and I can almost guarantee that it will have a huge emotional, spiritual, and mental impact on everyone who reads it. You’ll find old revelations and new surprises, some shocking, some relieving. There is practically no way that any reader could walk away from this story without a feeling of satisfaction and a head full of wonder. At nearly thirty thousand words longer than Eye of the Oracle, The Bones of Makaidos was worth every page. Don’t even bother buckling your seatbelt for this wild ride!

Could it have been any better? No! This book is an outstanding book in an outstanding series. The Bones of Makaidos is a fitting end to the best series of books I have ever read! If you have read any of the books in the Dragons in our Midst or Oracles of Fire series this one is a MUST read. While I read I felt like I was in the story itself, crying with them, laughing with them, fighting with them. In the ultimate battle of good vs. evil I felt joy at surprise reunions and sadness over the loss of loved ones. In the end I was left with a happiness that can only come from experiencing God at work in this world of ours. The Bones of Makaidos provides a Happily-Ever-After ending that is like no other and will leave you, as the reader, longing for an adventure like this.

The Final Installment is truly amazing. I couldn't put the book down, so be sure to start it on the weekend! It might be the best of the 8 books in the series.
Bryan Davis is phenomenal.

I have NOT gotten it yet, but I'm dragging my mom to the store tomorrow so we can. The end of Nephilim is such a cliff-hanga! O MEH GAWSH! My reading friend Keith, got it and I'm seriously jealous! Keep writing more stories like these. They are actiony, fantasy, and still religious. There aren't many of those books 'round! Please keep writing for young teen and pre-teen readers. It helps give us faith, with fun.

I loved the ending of The Bones of Makaidos. It was the perfect ending. I have read other books that end with '18 years later' and then that part of the book is stiff (like they are stating history or something), but the ending in your book is natural and believable.
Thank-you so much for Oracles of Fire and Dragons in our Midst ^-^
