They become embroiled in a plot involving the return of the dragons, and David must make a difficult choice that will determine the fate of the dragons.
The third book, Fire Star, picks up where the second book left off and sees David and Zanna travelling to the Arctic in search of a mythical Icefire, a powerful dragon that has the ability to control the elements. Along the way, they encounter a group of dragon scientists who are conducting experiments on the dragons and are forced to confront the dark side of dragon magic.

The Fire Within
'David ran a hand through his mop of brown hair. Dragons. It was certainly different from his last set of lodgings, where all you got were spiders and the occasional mouse. "It's perfect," he said. 'When David arrives at Wayward Crescent, he has no idea what lurks inside the Penny kettle house. Only when he's given his own special dragon does he begin to unlock their mysterious secrets, and to discover the fire within...
Life isn't exactly normal lodging at the Pennykettles - not when you're surrounded by hundreds of clay pottery dragons. Fate seems to be dictating an unusual course for David when his university tutor sets him on a writing project on the existence - or not - of dragons. The tantalizing prize - a fully-funded research trip to the Arctic - seems just within his grasp. David starts to research the subject and soon discovers a connection between dragons and the Arctic just as it begins to snow. Is it only a coincidence? Or could deeper forces be at work? As David starts to uncover more about the dragons, he finds himself drawn down a path from which there is no going back to a time when dragons really did exist and their secrets were guarded by the polar bears of the Arctic. If David is going to have any chance of winning the research trip, he has to open his mind to the legend of dragons and the mysterious secret of Icefire.
A research trip to the Arctic and a new book - life can't get much better for David Rain. As soon as David finds himself in the icy climes, he starts to write his story of bears, dragons and the mysterious fire star. Soon he realises that his tale is beginning to mirror real life and that an old adversary is on her way to meet him. Can David thwart her terrible master plan? Or will his world be destroyed forever?
The Fire Eternal
Five years have passed since David Rain, now a cult author, disappeared mysteriously in the Arctic. Life in Wayward Crescent has settled to relative normality. But as the weather grows wild and the ice caps melt, all eyes turn north, where bears and the souls of the Inuit dead are combining to produce a spectacular solution... A solution with its focus on David's child, Alexa - if the agents of evil don't reach her first.
With the Earth on the brink of recolonisation by dragons, David Rain is sent on an important mission: to seek out and destroy a trace of dark fire, the deadliest force in the universe. But with success could come a terrible price, the sacrifice of a beloved clay dragon. How much does the life of one small dragon count when the alternative is the birth of a darkling...?
Chris d'Lacey's wonderful storytelling takes us on a journey with familiar characters - in an unfamiliar place. Evil Aunts, intriguing firebirds and a dangerous universe await in another action-packed, compelling story.
