  1. Thank you for compiling this great list! I read Rifles for Watie when I was young, but I had forgotten all about it! It is an excellent book. There are lots of new ones to check out on this list, too.

  2. I wanted to also recommend Bryan Davis. He has several series that are Christian focused but also have dragons and Nephilim and all kinds of exciting things. My almost 11 year old has finished his first 2 series (Dragons in Our Midst and Oracles of Fire) and I’m about to order the third (Dragons of Starlight).
