Review: Fire, Dragons, and two beastologists. Wyverns' Treasure is the third book in the Nathaniel Fludd Beastologist series. The main character is Nathaniel who likes being called Nate. He is youngest Fludd and that last descendent of the first Fludd, who seeks to carry out the family tradition. The Wyverns' Treasure is mainly for children 13 and younger. This book is an excellent book for people who like mythical creatures like dragons. Flight of the Phoenix and Wyverns' Treasure are fictional books that involved some realistic things.
Aunt Phil and Nate get back to the house to find that it has been searched. Nate feels that something is missing then realizes that it is the dodo bird. Aunt Phil and Nate search the hose until they find the dodo bird hiding under the table. They find out who the intruder looks like and guess it is the descendent of the black sheep of the family, Obediah Fludd. Then Aunt Phil tells Nate that they are going to search Nate's house in case his parents left some important piece of evidence about where the Book of Beasts a book that holds vital information about all that creatures went. They find out that their parents' house had also been searched because of the mess the searcher had left. They find nothing at all that is important that could help them uncover the location of the Book of Beasts. When they were there they get a message from Cornelius which says that the caretakers at Wells are having trouble with the wyverns, a type of dragons. When Nate got there he meets the furious creatures and finds out that there has been an intruder in the Wyverns' Cave. It is the beastologists job to take care of the problem.
I enjoyed the book very much. The author made the characters have funny or serious roles in the story. This is good because a character without an exciting or cool role is boring. The first book inspired me to read the other books in the series. If anyone hasn't read the first book or second the author describes the characters at the start of the book in what their nature or feeling is. The illustrator did a great job illustrating. She drew all the illustrations very well. I think the books start to get more exciting as the newer ones come in the series. I think this because the second book Basilisk's Lair was better than the first book. The Wyverns' Treasure is better than the Basilisk's Lair. This book is the best one from the first and second book because it has more action. Also there is a time when you don't know what going to happen. I rate this book 10 out of 10; what do you rate it?
