This review will show you a thing or two about this amazing series by Tracey West so you can decide if the story suits your style.
Dragon Masters Book Series
This is the first book of the series, as the story finally starts and you get to discover what kind of series this actually is. You will also begin to notice a pattern, as you start reading more and more books from the series, where each of the books contain stories special to a different type of dragon, for example, this one talks about many dragons, but there is one more special than the others, an Earth Dragon.
Another character, who is special in this story is an 8-year-old boy named Drake. He is taken by the King’s soldiers and escorted to the castle, where he joins the group of young Dragon Master trainees who must fulfill their destiny.
Ana, Rori, and Bo are the other young trainees and they all must bond with their dragons first and then discover their special powers. Drake’s story will surely be the most interesting of all when he finally meets his dragon.
See what we mean about the pattern in the titles? This book introduces you to the Sun Dragon and there are plenty of other types of dragons that you will be finding out about in this article.
You will discover so many more thrilling facts about this series like the fact, that every single book of the series has a ton of colorful illustrations in it and much more. The story in the second book of the series continues after where the events of the first one left off, as the 4 young Dragon Master trainees are still working to become masters.
The main plot here revolves around the fact that Ana’s dragon, Kepri, has fallen ill and the characters must travel the world to search for a cure. Thanks to Drake’s dragon, Worm, this task will be a bit easier regarding the traveling part.
The book focuses on a Water Dragon this time and a bit more on the character known as Bo in the series. What gets everyone worried here is the fact, that someone is trying to steal a precious artifact to the wizards in the books, called the Dragon Stone. It turns out that the thief is their friend and fellow Dragon Master trainee, Bo.
Drake begins to wonder if the terrible Dark Wizard might be behind this whole situation and Bo’s dragon, Shu, shows his own special powers that might just come in handy in this particular situation. The tale here is one of great mystery and thrill so be sure to read it carefully.
The fourth book of Dragon Masters presents to you, for the first time ever, a giant Fire Dragon who is serving a terrible and evil man, Maldred. The story starts as a few of the Dragon Master trainees go to visit the Kingdom of Queen Rose and Drake and Rori end up staying behind.
Riding a Dragon
They thought they would see no adventure that day but to their surprise, there he is, Maldred shows up riding a huge Fire Dragon and attacks the castle. Everyone is shocked by what they are seeing, how is this wizard controlling such a huge and reckless dragon and that’s something that we won’t spoil for you here, as you get to find out how this story ends for yourself.
This is the fifth book of the series and it’s the book that introduces you to the fifth member of the Dragon Master trainees’ group. Her name is Petra and she is definitely a weird character who has trouble fitting in with the group at first.
What’s even weirder is that she isn’t even trying to bond with her four-headed dragon. The others start thinking that the Dragon Stone had chosen her by mistake but that’s not possible as this has never happened before.
A terrible event later that happens to the King, leaving him in danger, offers Petra a chance to work together with the others in her group to save their beloved King. If this doesn’t make her bond with her dragon, then nothing will.
The list continues with yet another book of the series with even more beautiful illustrations that accompany the story inside. The sixth book of the series presents another interesting story.
This time, the prime Dragon Stone is threatened again and the Dragon Masters must save this sacred object, or else they will end up losing their connections to their beloved dragons forever.

Another exciting adventure awaits the Dragon Masters in the seventh book of this amazing child-friendly series. This time, their mission is to track down a rare Lightning Dragon, who moves fast through the air and is hard to pin down.
The story reveals that before they find this dragon, they first must see his Dragon Master boy named Carlos. This Lightning Dragon is crazy fast and shoots lightning sparks of energy and to make the situation worse, he has gone rogue and escaped his master for some reason.
The thrilling suspense in this book is also something to look forward to, as you get to find out if Carlos and the Dragon Masters manage to find the Lightning Dragon in time and reconnect him with Carlos.
