I looked back at the stone. It sank slowly into the soil a couple of inches, and the plant beside it was still. I gazed directly at the small plant and did what knew I had to do.
   “Grow,” I commanded it.
   Almost instantly the plant began to shiver. Its leaves shook, and a small black shoot shot out of the middle like a serpents tongue. It twisted up then arched itself back down into the dirt. Two seconds later it popped up next to the stone and quickly wrapped itself around it.

This is an excerpt from when Beck planted a stone, which was soon going to turn into a humongous dragon.

This book is in a series of two books, and the books in the series are Pillage and Choke. The author Obert Skye has written plenty other books like, the well known series of Leven Thumps: Leven Thumps and the Gateway to Foo. Leven Thumps and the Whispered secret, Leven Thumps and the Eyes of the Want, Leven Thumps and the Wrath of Ezra, and Leven Thumps and the Ruins of Alder. Obert Skye has also started a new series called Geth and the Return of the Lithens.

Beck Pillage is a trouble magnet. Since he last killed the dragons, Beck has lived with his dad in the mansion. When a mysterious named Whitey appears, he tells Beck that there is one more dragon left. It is the Queen dragon. He says, that Beck has to kill the dragon when it is young, otherwise the town of Kingsplot will get destroyed. With the help of his friends, Beck plants the dragon but doesn’t kill it because he thinks it is adorable. Will the town of Kingsplot fall into the hands of the Queen dragon and will Beck kill the Queen dragon?

I thought this book was very good. First of all, the description of the queen dragon matches the covers drawing. It was the same thing in Pillage. Secondly, at the end of each chapter Obert Skye includes a picture of a dragon that explains more about the book. My favorite part of this book was when they killed the queen dragon, named Lizzy. Obert Skye put so much detail in the book that it was like a movie going in my head. I gave it an eight out of ten because in some parts I got very confused, since Obert Skye did not describe some parts well. One of the parts I got confused was when Beck was talking to his dad and accusing him of being Whitey and for tricking Beck to plant the stone. I wondered how Beck knew that, and why Beck’s Father would want to trick Beck into planting the stone, because he was the one who wanted to put an end to dragons. Otherwise I loved this book, and I hope Obert Skye writes a new one.

I would recommend this book to people who love fantasy and people who like dragons.
