    I must start by saying I had no idea this was the second book in a series when I picked it up at the library Nowhere on the cover does it indicate it s part of a series at all But I had no problem figuring out characters, and the references to previous incidents weren t bothersome, and actually made me curious enough to reserve the first book.I never summarize plot in reviews, so let s just say in this well written middle grade novel you ll find magic, dragons, a mystery, quirky characters, and [...]

    Theodora and her father have gone to Scotland Her father is a famous scientist and will be studying a mysterious scale from an unknown animal While out adventuring, Theodora discovers a ghost dog and she calls him William Electra comes along later to brighten the way.Reasons why I liked this book Reason 1 There is adventure and magic.Reason 2 There is the ghost dog William.Reason 3 I could imagine what was happening.

    I enjoyed this book, I may not of finished it but I got through a decent chunk of it I liked how it switched character to character throughout the story, to show you of whats going on I mainly liked it because it was the first sequel I have read I have seen many sequels to movies and well they aren t as good as the first In this book though it was as good, if not better than the first one This is my review on this book, to an extent of knowledge.

    It took me ages to actually start this book because I got it when I was about 9 but didn t start properly reading it until I was 13 I don t know exactly why I was deterred for 4 years but I found that it was a bit of a slow start with many twists and turns at the very start that could have scared a young primary school child away Having said that, once I got into it and was a bit older, I found that this book was not at all frighteningly if that s a word complex and it was actually a fun and enj [...]

    This was a good book My daughter and I both liked it We are hoping that there will be books in the series.

    A nice, solid sequel to the original Hatching Magic Both of the Hatching Magic series which seems to hint at a continuation, but so far there appear to be just the two would be a good series for someone who likes the Harry Potter books Kudos to Ms Downer for also having a strongly multi cultural cast and a nice gender balance It s a nice refreshing change to have a character refer to becoming an engineer like my Aunt Jane.

    With a little not so subtle help from some witches, 12 year old Theodora travels to Cornwall to be with her father, the acknowledged expert on the mysterious scale that fell during the first book Unfortunately for all concerned, the trip is a trap, and little Theodora has a difficult time ahead of her as she works to make things right I enjoyed this story, but it has a darker twist and deeper meanings than most children s books It can also be confusing and difficult to follow, with too many char [...]

    great book that almost instantly got me hooked Though slightly confusing with what I thought was a slightly rushed ending I enjoyed the characters and it was truly a fun fantasy tale I must say that overall it was a goodread For any of you thinking of reading this, be aware that this is the sequel to a book called Hatching Magic, so make sure you read that one before this one both book in this series can be located at the Notheast Harbor Library.

    I think that if Ann Downer described the vibe that Theodora had when she met the dragon, the ending would have had tension I felt that when Theodora save Colin from the dragon she had done it as if she had thought about it before It was a choice for neither someone he knew or cared about, so I thought that Ann Downer could have sort of collected Theodora s thoughts throughout the story and then explained her sudden reaction.

    The 2nd in the series but I couldn t follow it well Either tired or got interrupted too many times Now that her father is an expert on dragon scales Theodora goes with him to Scotland to look at a possible scale However, it is a trick to get Theo there to destroy her before she grows into her magic ability OK, so far Where I lost it somehow was in the Never Was.

    A very compelling read Is a young teen growing story It ends without superficial solutions fixing everything at the end of the story nor with a desperate cliff hanger as if that were the only way to compel readers to stay Main character is sympathetic and reasonable enough that I don t mind allowing her space in my thoughts.

    Another in the ongoing read a thon for Dragon Storytime in January it s the second in what will be a series Lots of interesting plot twists, but ending came a little too fast Twelve year old heroine coming of age into strong magical power enemies seeking to stop her Really cool character is ghost dog Uilleam who only she can see.

    This is the sequel to Hatching Magic, and the author constantly refers to things in that book, so if you ve not read it, it s immensely frustrating It s about finding a dragon in Scotland, and it is excrutiatingly slow to develop It leaves me feeling rather like a Scottish winter cold, dead, grey, and wishing for some intensity and fire.

    Not at all bad, despite being one of those randomly transplanted to the British Isles sequels Not as good as Hatching Magic, but there are strong sympathetic adult characters, traces of mystery, helpful animals and a mostly solid plotline At my advanced age, parts of the plot seemed contrived but there were definitely surprises.

    This book helped flesh out the character of DoDo, the teenage protagonist Although she still complained about her friends being too busy to hang out with her, she seems well adapted to adventure.I will read from this author definitely.

    2.43 starsNot as good as Diana Wynne Jones not as much humor, and the characters are kind of boring.

    didn t like this one as much as hatching magic i m going to have to read it again to see if it has grown on me started out really well, but

    it was simply brillanltny i loved this book because it was magicail and the plot was some mixed and the details it made me fell like i was reading harry potter or harry plotter
