PRAISE for Dragonkyn

4.5 out of 5 STARS on Amazon
4.4 out of 5 STARS on Goodreads

“Nathan Smith Jones has written something that stirs up the secret desires — to be unique, to have secret powers, to learn to accept change and become stronger because of it. Is it a winner for young adults? Absolutely. But it is also a winner for adults. I do not see that this is a book for “boys,” — the female characters resonate with strength, humor and ability as they join Marc on his journey of self-discovery. And hey! Girls love dragons too! A super enjoyable read, even for a middle-aged woman!”
–Brenda Sue, review on

“It is not simply a YA novel and as a “senior” citizen I found this book intriguing, imaginative and a real page turner. It is a highly moral story that goes much deeper than you might guess. Jones is a great story teller and I am looking forward to the next book in the series.”
—Luvidinha, Amazon user.

“…a fast-paced story that will appeal to middle-grade readers who are looking for adventure in their reading…The ordinary becomes the extraordinary and growing up has never been quite so difficult! Looking for a weekend read – your tweens will thank you for this one!  …I was provided a review copy of this book by the publisher with no expectation of a review, positive or otherwise. All expressed opinions are my own.”

“My 11-year-old son loved it! He read it in 2 days, and when I asked him how he liked it, he said “It’s great – is there another book in the series I can read?” That’s about as strong an endorsement as he can give. So I read it after he did (since I usually do read a sampling of what he’s reading to just make sure I know what he’s taking in) and I read it in 2 days, too. It’s fast paced and doesn’t bog down. As with any fantasy novel, there’s a bit of violence, but it’s not gratuitous or over done. In short, a winner!”

“I was laughing, crying, and on my toes through the whole thing! 10/10. Will be reading this again.”

“Loved it! There’s no language or sex which is great! My kids are excited to read this book. Hope there will be another book in this series soon.”
—Wendy De Luna, Amazon user

“…characters are cleverly and realistically developed. An individual would have to have a hard heart not to become totally endeared to Marc and his friend Luke.  The Book Cover and Title are perfect ‘fit’ and will surely ‘catch the eye’ of the “browser”. This is definitely a Five Star Book!”
  –LAWonder10, Amazon user

“Exciting, age appropriate, and with more than enough adventure for parents, too!”
—Sharon Carstens, Arizona

“…[my son] loved the surprise factor—the book was never predictable.”
