Seems like it's getting really crowded with all kinds of baby dragons now. It's good that Aaron has a human companion now. A list of characters at the start or end would be good and maybe a little blurb at the beginning which summarizes the last chapter would be appreciated by occasional readers.

"Same as you, I recon. " (reckon) "recon" would be short for the military term "reconnaissance."

"You know I know I know it too." (Did you really want the second 'I know?')

Hi Cindy, I'm still fascinated where this story is going. I have a suggestion, though. You have a tendency of writing : said Aaron , said she, she said and so forth. After a while it reads like a list or rather staccato. Just an example how you could change this:
"Maybe they'd be happier with full bellies," said Aaron. = Aaron looked him straight in the eyes, "Maybe they'd be happier with full bellies."
Just a suggestion. Kind regards. Ulla:)))

I like Black flaming at the dragoyles. He's getting his spirit back. Now that all 12 dragons are hatched, you may have to list them and their characteristics in the author notes to help new readers.

Storyline is emerging as the outside world closes in on Aaron and his "family".

Didn't notice any spag except for the following sentence that confused me.

"You know I know I know it too.'.

Hello Cindy Warren
Ah I see smiles that Aron was a quick thinker.
I'm wondering why are the dragons that hatched Ugly

    Thanks. I guess their mother had an unusual boyfriend. I thought I needed to do something different, and these little guys promise to be fun.

We got them out of this tight spot. What next? I have a feeling all isn't quiet for long. Having those last two hatchlings so different from the others is a good twist, and 'dragoyles' is a clever name.

    Thanks. I can't let them get too bored, can I? The two 'dragoyles' should be fun. I can imagine them scaring a few people.

A lot of smart thinking on Aarons part. I love how he played it off so nonchalantly the way he did. He didn't miss a beat. Found out a little about the boy and the witch too. It's a well-written, very interesting chapter. I'm glad things worked out as well as they did.

    Thanks. Yep, both the boy and the witch have been pretty tight lipped. He'll learn more later on.

This chapter "Dylan"
Was well written and rich in Theme and Imagery.
...
It read well and Flowed well with no Grammar Issues as well.
...
Adjective and Objective Contents were both Excellent and Exceptional while Descriptive Measures aligned Perfectly.
Thanks,
Doctor Ricky 1024

Close call, but Aaron handled it well. I like the nickname dragoyles. So the king is looking for the witch. I doubt he knows about the baby dragons. He would destroy them for sure, so I hope his men don't return.

    Thanks. The king does not know about the dragons. They'd be served up on the royal dinner table!

You did a good job adding some interesting storylines to your story, Cindy. I enjoyed reading this chapter. I'm glad that the visitors seemed satisfied for now about Aaron. The two newest dragons have a cute name--dragoyles. Thanks for sharing. Respectfully with Love, Jan
