4.0 out of 5 stars Great kid's book! May 24 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I read this to my 3 year old son, and he loved it! It gets into the action right away with the prologue, which caught my son's attention and left him wanting to hear more. It is well written, more so than other series for this age range and has a simple, yet varied vocabulary. Lastly, it is true fantasy with wizards (good and evil), dragons, and heroes. I hope the next one Issa enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2nd grader loved it April 2 2007
By sushishrink - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I bought this at the book fair, trying to find an exciting adventure series for my son. This is the first book he truly could not put down. I read the first chapter to him and then he continued to read, after dinner, in the tub, before bed, until he finally finished it that same evening. It was great to see him enjoy reading so much. We are buying the next one in the series now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great "level 3" chapter book Feb. 16 2007
By Heidi Green - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have to admit I was very nervous when my son (2nd grade, RL 3) picked out this book. I wanted to read it with him to make sure it was appropriate. It is about a 12 year old boy who is saving the kingdom from beasts that are destroying the land. The beasts are usually the protectors of the ancient kingdom but a sorcerer has put enchanted collars around their necks so they have started to do his bidding. The thing I really appreciate about this series is that the hero never has to kill the beast - only unlock their collars and then the beasts become friendly again. A great read for any child who loves adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hey, mature readers, don't look twice at this book, but 2nd and 3rd graders will love it! April 6 2007
By She who Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Beast Quest: Ferno the Fire Dragon, is a story about a kingdom plauged by a mysterious power that is drying up rivers, destroying villages and crops, and causing mast turmoil. A young boy namd Tom vows several times to defeat this power, and travels to the king's place. What goes on from there is great adventure, quick-paced action, and cool magic.

For 2-3rd graders.

The print is very large, and the story is very simple. But if I was in the lower grades, I would have thought it the next big series. But Adam Blade does a very good job in writing this series.

Definently a series your elementary grade child has been looking for to make reading more fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beast Quest Turned My Son Onto Reading Nov. 25 2012
By Tom Triumph - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Great for kids six to ten, but can be a little violent.

My six year old son "hated" reading, even when read to. He was feeling frustrated that he couldn't do it (he's only six), but he wanted to read the chapter books his older brother did. Magic Tree House and other series didn't engage him. While on vacation in Virginia, my wife found the first of the series at a local Barnes & Noble. There was a 3 for 2 sale, and my son liked the cover (both sons talk about the details of each cover).

Now he can't stop reading them (actually, having them read to him). He gets upset when it's time for bed. And, he's become really interesting in reading (he has a great first grade teacher, too).

What's interesting is that we've lent the books to two other "reluctant readers" we know and both can't get enough. One is in third grade and the "easy" books were too dull. My fifth grade son, who enjoys Percy Jackson and is an excellent bookworm, had to plow through them all as soon as we get new ones.

Although formulaic, it is not quite as obvious as Magic Tree House (our older son is a HUGE Jack and Annie fan, and we love those books, too). Each monster is different, with a different danger and a different solution.

Beast Quest also has a simple-yet-decent mythology. Both of my sons watched Beyblades for a while and spent a year breathing the Star Wars universe. There are plenty of characters and lore and rules that make the universe work. Beast Quest satisfies their need for a complete mythology that grows along with the series.

There is a lot of action and plenty of danger. Some reviewers have mentioned the violence in the books, and I don't disagree. The first series is mainly action, but people die in the later series. In the first series, the monsters are good but controlled by an evil collar (he unlocks each collar in a unique way). In later series, the monsters are just evil and have to die. Think about your own values and what your child watches for media. Star Wars and Clone Wars is as "adult" as we go, but that's pretty violent at times. But Harry Potter and Percy Jackson get pretty violent too (but are meant for slightly older kids). Be warned, as they are addictive.

The U.S. series runs out at #24. My sons had been anticipating at least 60, as they are mentioned on Wikipedia. Apparently, Scholastic stopped at #24 and so we have had to order the next 18 from the UK ($25 total for used copies, but another $75 for postage!). Come on Scholastic--publish these books!

A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I read the first four books and ended up not liking them because they were to easy. I'm going into fourth grade and I'm into things like Charlie Bone, Harry Potter etc. I do think this book is better for the younger audience, like 7 or 8 years old so me and my mom are going to donate our books of them to charity.
