Goodreads Summary: Bentwhistle the Dragon in A Threat from the Past is an adventure story children and adults alike will love, about the present day world in which dragons disguised as humans have infiltrated the human race at almost every level, to guide and protect them. Three young dragons in their human guises become caught up in an evil plot to steal a precious commodity, vital to the dragon community. How will the reluctant hero and his friends fare against an enemy of his race from far in the past? Fascinating insights into the dragon world are interspersed throughout the book. Ever wondered how dragons travel below ground at almost the speed of sound? Or how they use magical mantras to transform their giant bodies into convincing human shapes? In an action packed adventure that features both human and dragon sports, you’ll get a dragon-like perspective on human social issues and insight into what to do if you meet a giant spider grinning at you when you’re wearing nothing but your smile!
The blending of human and dragon worlds is perfect and extremely detailed. Peter and his two friends were perfectly well formed and all had distinct personalities of their own. Each of the characters had their own story. The story is good, the world and character building are fantastic. The only downside is that there are few chapters. This means that each one is quite long and I work better with chapters that are shorter and allow me to pick it up, read a couple, and put it down again without having to cut my read short halfway through. That being said, when I did get to sit and read, I really enjoyed joining Peter on his journey.
I would happily recommend it to my friends that love dragons and fantasy fiction.
