backfirst flight reviews

My 6th grade son just finished reading "The Dark Eagles First Flight" and he informed me that it is the best book he has ever read, better than the "Hunger Games". He is doing an oral presentation on the book and he is genuinely excited about talking with his class about this book. I just wanted to send this email to thank you for engaging my son’s imagination and helping him love to read. Craig Reese

The Dark Eagles First Flight is the first installment of what I anticipate to be an epic battle between liberty and tyranny. David Smith’s character development is wonderful. As a reader, you quickly get a sense of each character and feel as if you know them. I appreciated how well their personalities and talents complimented each other. The Dark Eagles First Flight is full of adventure and my heart was pounding with excitement as I read the last few chapters. I recommend this book to young and old alike and especially to anyone who loves freedom. Courtney Wilson,

"I met you at a book signing at Barnes and Noble in Natomas and purchased the first book for my 13 year old son. I gave it to him for Christmas. He is a reluctant reader but this book captured him. He read even when we weren't making him. I went right out and got the second book for him and he read it even faster. Now I have a sad boy because there isn't another book to read. Please write more! Thank you for your positive influence in my son's life!" Kimberly Hendricks

“The book was wonderfully written. It is a book for all ages and gender. I enjoyed the character development and the friendships formed from the adversity they faced. I would love to read the second one and find out how...” The Book Rack, Arcadia, CA

“Author David R. Smith does a fine job with his dialogue, which flows smoothly and wittily throughout. His interactions between characters are genuine, and the portrayals of his young female characters in particular are refreshing.” The Deseret News, Salt Lake City, UT

“I thoroughly enjoyed “The Dark Eagles” because it was totally exciting and there was a lot of action. I give “The Dark Eagle’s First Flight” five out of five book worms for its adventure and excitement!” This Kid Reviews Books
