    1. What a beautiful, charming story this is. Part fairytale, part fantasy, exceptionally moving, it is the story of a girl raised by a dragon from the time that she's six years old. At first, a very reluctant dragon. What do dragons know about raising kids anyway? But she has no one else, because her family all died in a fire and there's no other family to speak of. So they are stuck together after the village tries to feed her to the dragon to appease it so that it will stop the draught killing th [...]

    2. I received an electronic copy of this book as part of the EPIC: Fourteen Books Of Fantasy boxed set in exchange for an honest review.A rather simple tale, but told so beautifully that it made me want to cry at the end. Girl's family dies in a fire and she miraculously survives. The guy who set the fire tries to feed her to a dragon; instead, the dragon protects her. Prince goes off to kill the dragon, dragon wins but lets him live and, oh yes, happily forever after happens too. Very simple in co [...]

    3. Ahh, I loved this one. I got this book in the Kindle bundle EPIC: 14 Books of Fantasy.I have to say I was growing tired of reading tragic and action filled first-of-its-trilogy books, and Jade was a much needed and much welcome rest from that.It was wonderful and refreshing to read an almost fairy-tale story of love and kindness (view spoiler)[ and happy-endings(hide spoiler)] that had started and ended and didn't leave me dying to know if I should pick up the sequel.Upon finishing I found out t [...]

    4. For a few hours I felt like a child again, escaping a rainy afternoon into a fairytale of the young unwanted girl becoming a princess, a dragon, magic, and good winning over evil. As a stand alone story it is not complex but Lallo excels at creating characters I quickly become attached to. If this had been available 25 years ago I would have been reading it at bedtime to my daughter.I understand this is set in a world where Lallo has written a series, which I have not read. Many of the reviews a [...]

    5. A girl, a dragon, and a sacrafice that didn't happen. Good choice for a start on "Jade". Usually the lady is sacraficed for the good of her village/family but Jade is saved instead.I like the way that the main character Jade is shown as a strong example of what a girl-child to young woman can do. Not a victim and not uber girly.I recommend for Young Adults and young Teens. Good side - story in Joseph Lallo's world of Deacon.

    6. I love this guy, I really do. I love the world he has created and the characters he fills it with. This story, short, but sweet sets the stage for another set of adventures and I'm keen to see if Joseph will continue. ^_^

    7. This was a great "dessert" story after the feast that was the trilogy. Touching and poignant, doesn't have the non-stop action of the trilogy and that was actually perfect.

    8. Jade is a short story set in the world of Deacon, long after the Chronicles of Deacon have reached their inevitable conclusion. All in all, it's quite a sweet story, however the short length of it means that vast swathes of Jade's life are swept over with little to no detail. The writing style is therefore somewhat bare bones and it's difficult to continue caring about a character when you keep missing years of their life and popping back in to see how they are doing.I also found the love aspect [...]

    9. LOVED IT!I previously read the Book Of Deacon Trilogy and really like them although confused with some of the creepy crawly things that would not die. This book, Jade, was absolutely marvelous. It told of Myn, Ether, Myranda and even Connor Celeste. I loved that Halfax's brothers were responsible for Lumineblades and Rintons. For me, it wrapped up the story of Myranda as did the previous book I read, Rise of The Red Phantom gave me an endorsing for Lain. Thank you for hours of enjoyment

    10. Excellent story!!!I would recommend anyone who likes fantasy to read this. Granted there was a few errors but overall I loved it. I hope Mr. Lallo will write more of this world and the descendants of the chosen. Keep up the good work sir.

    11. A lovely little story set in the Book of Deacon universe. Don't worry if you have forgotten all the details of the original trilogy, but I will say that a familiarity with the story is helpful here.

    12. I enjoyed the story, but I felt it ended rather abruptly. I would have liked to see a bit more to it. It felt like it was revving up for a more in-depth tale, but it just ended.

    13. great short read but good story inbetween series. hopefully you bring halfax and jade back somewhere in story and he gets his wings back

    14. I haven't read any of the supporting series, so I can tell you it works well as a stand alone book.A tenacious girl decides befriend a dragon, whether it wants it or not, after a scheming farmer tries to give her up to "appease" a dragon, that they think is causing a severe drought.She is, believably irritating, as most little kids are, in the way that's good for them, and helps them learn and grow - like asking many questions, and wanting to learn more and hear stories.I was a little disenchant [...]

    15. Rating: 4.4 starsI'm not cryingt at all.Jade is such a cute, touching story. It drew me in immediately, which isn't really surprising because I love almost anything that has a dragon aspect to it. Anyways, Hal and Jade's relationship, I just adored it. Rather, I adored them. Every time they were together I couldn't help but smile like an idiot. Although, I was disappointed with the love aspect in the story, I just felt like it wasn't needed. Honestly, I was praying that there wasn't going to be [...]

    16. Another masterpiece Lallo, keep 'em coming! I absolutely loved this book, the characters were flawless, in that flawed kind of way, their stories adventurous and varied. A great read. I did read the book of deacon trilogy first, and I can't help but feel this book added the perfect touch to the trilogies ending. This story plays with your heart strings, and gives you a new perspective of the way things are and should be in life.To be honest, I was disappointed when the story ended though I knew [...]

    17. This was a short and sweet little story set in the world of The Book of Deacon trilogy. I'm torn about how to review it because there was nothing wrong with it, but it did feel like it was missing something. I think after reading Lallo's other work I was expecting this book to have more action. In terms of the structure of the plot I was expecting the plot to have a rising action, a climax, and a falling action, but those things didn't really happen. In my head I'm comparing this book to chocola [...]

    18. I don't take the time to review very often, because honestly, I read for pleasure and entertainment. I care less about plot and character development and more about whether or not I just simply enjoyed the book.Jade was a story I thoroughly enjoyed. I've read the Book of Deacon Trilogy (enjoyed that as well) and The Rise of the Red Shadow was great, but Jade wrap around my emotions more than the other 4 books. Three times I was brought to tears (one time they were streaming down my face). I grew [...]

    19. When I was looking for something to read the idea of a dragon raising a little girl was fantastic. Not something that I had ever heard done before. I was not disapointed. The book was well written. The two main characters well defined for a short story. This book is a short story that kind of gives a what happened to characters from a trilogy. I knew it would be good to read the others first but this is the one that caught my attention. It was good enough to cause me to want to read the trilogy [...]

    20. I read this story many months after finishing the Book of Deacon trilogy, so I can't remember all of the details as well as I would have liked. Jade takes place many generations after the conclusion of the previous trilogy. It follows young Jade and the dragon who has been lurking outside her village. It turns out that he is a descendant of Myn, and she is a descendant of Mirranda. This is a short story that follows Jade as she grows up and gives some details about the rest of her life. Easy to [...]

    21. I read this independently of its series then promptly popped off and bought the other books. Because I wasn't aware that Jade was just a quick little novella, it was a teensy bit anticlimactic, but the writing was pleasant in a tongue-in-cheek sort of way. It took traditional fairy tale elements, turned them upside down, and ended up with a sweet, heartwarming bit of story. Not much substance, but cheery and fizzy like Pop Rocks. This was the literary equivalent of Pop Rocks. And it was delightf [...]

    22. I'm generally pretty skeptical about books with talking dragons, but I have become pretty attached to the world and characters that Lallo has created. By the time I got to this book I'd already read his 4 other books, gotten to know his style, and become obsessed with the original Chosen. It's hard to compare this to those books because it feels a little rushed and tacked on to the Book of Deacon trilogy, but there are lots of cool easter eggs for those who have read the previous books, and spac [...]

    23. It is a great companion for the Book of Deacon series. It lacks the suspense and the risks that are so greatly shown through the other books, but nonetheless it works for a light-easy-reading. Jade's story connects very well with the other characters, and I was greatly surprised with the identity of one of the characters on the book (I wont risk saying anything more!).Once again it invites you to read more about this author, it shows great promise.

    24. I've recently finished reading the Book of Deacon trilogy and the prequel, and this book it just as good as the rest of them.It's like a damsel in distress story, but the roles are completely reversed and the characters are anything but two dimensional. Defiantly worth the read.(view spoiler)[But seriously, is there ANYTHING that can stop/kill Epidime. He's like a grotesque house spider that disappears every time you try to get rid of it. (hide spoiler)]

    25. Book #4 in Book of Deacon.Set many years later in the Book of Deacon world, this is a strong writing, but if you are looking for the same characters that were in the first three books, look elsewhere. They are not here. Jade is a prisoner in a dark tower after being tricked by a stranger. However, not all is what it seems. This was a decent story, but I was hoping it would be about one of the character from the actual time-frame of the first three books, and it wasn't.Three stars.

    26. A lot stronger than the trilogy this sprang from, this follows the story of Jade, a descendant of Myranda and Duncan, and a green dragon that is descended from Myranda's own dragon. As the forces that Myranda and the others banished from their world begin to stir again, Jade must decide whether she wishes to stay with the friend that raised her, or rejoin the world on humans for the man she loves. But not every happy ending is a good thing.

    27. I quite enjoyed this story. My only complaint is that the five year old in this story had advanced reasoning and introspection skills inappropriate for a child of this age. Indeed I have read many adventure tales where teenagers were not nearly as astute as this young child. There really should be more resaerch done into the development of logic functions for children. Young children may suprise you with their precociousness but they are not this intuitive.

    28. A decent short story about a girl and a dragon. Kept me entertained over a night and I don't regret reading it, but I don't see myself reading it again. I got this for free and part of my lack of interest may be that I'm not familiar with the world it's from. Apparently it's a short story spin-off of a larger series the author has written. Still, good for a quick, fun read.
