Format: Paperback
I don't generally read fantasy fiction but I'm so glad that I took a leap of faith with The Fruit of the Dendragon Tree. It was extremely worth it. This book grabbed my attention as I immediately became lost in a world of mythical creatures--witches, werewolves, vampires, elves and a dragon. Each character more vivid than the next. Each scene as if I stood in it myself. The faces of the characters as clear as someone standing next to me. The heat of the dragon's breath filled the room with each page I turned. Every battle felt as if I was there as I experienced sadness, hope, fear and anxiety along with the characters. I was afraid to put the book down because I wanted to know what was going to happen next. There were so many twists and turns that left me guessing I read fervently to the end.

Jake Patel's mother was dying of cancer. He is angry but hopeful. His dad has pretty much accepted the fact that his precious wife is going to die. Like we all do at least once in life, Jake makes a bargain with the universe to spare his mother's life regardless of who has to die in her place. Jake refuses to lose hope as he thinks his father has. Jake's classmate, Jenny, is an untrained witch who comes to his aid in his efforts to save his mother's life. As a result of her help, Jake's transported to Tiramonde which is a world he isn't familiar with or even expected to see.

Upon his arrival to Tiramonde, he is guided by a young witch, Ureth, who informs him that the only thing to save his mother's life is for him to grab fruit from the dendragon tree. The only problem is that the legend says removing the fruit will release the dragon, Kildraig, who protects the tree. Easy, huh?

David, Jake's father, wakes up to find Jake is gone.

The Fruit of the Dendragon Tree by Paul H. Deepan has very vivid characters and an engaging plot. The story is full of adventure and sprinkled with wisdom throughout the pages. The main character struggles with the imminent death of his Mother and is determined to do all he possibly can to save her. The story brings the reader into another world, transported by magic, into a land populated with colorful characters that are not human, yet have personality and heart. The story presents the dilemma of choices and possible consequences. The main character is challenged to act in the face of fear and rely on intuition and insight. This story is well written, the author brings the reader into the minds and hearts of the main characters and moves you emotionally. The characters must act on faith and make choices based on what they love and value.

Read as metaphor, The Fruit of the Dendragon Tree speaks to our own internal struggles to save what we love and cherish even if it means allowing events to unfold that could be viewed as catastrophic. It encourages the reader to have faith in their knowing and to trust the unfolding of possibilities, allowing existing structures and forms to collapse as part of the process to open to something more expansive and more evolved. This is a healing story, a story of adventure and the quest for peace, for the integration of all aspects of our nature: the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Format: Paperback
The Fruit of the Dendragon Tree brings a troubled Jake Patel into the realm of fantasy in a quest to save his mother and, ultimately, to bond with his father. There are some marvelous characters and creatures in this book - including my personal favorite, Ureth the witch. I'll be more considerate of any witches I meet in the future!
However, what makes FOTDT unique among fantasies is the author's faithful characterization of Jake as a teenaged boy. He may learn skills and acquire powers, but we are always aware that he is seventeen and subject to the angst and the passions of the age. Caring about Jake as a young man and not a superhero adds texture to this very exciting tale.
I hope somebody is working on a screenplay!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Fantasy novels are not my genre, but I love to read local authors, and this book turned out to be a page turner for me. There were no dull moments in this rich story, and the ending was unexpected, which I loved. I agree with other reviewers: a sequel would be welcome. This is a very well written, imaginative tale of good versus evil; and though the characters include witches and a dragon in a parallel universe, it was a pleasure to read, no matter what my preferred genre. This book would be an excellent choice for a club wanting to break out of routine to discuss life, death, and spirituality without getting sad and morose.

I rarely read fantasy fiction but I went out on a limb. This book grabbed me early on and had that "what happened next?" quality that had me reading long after the time I should have been asleep. I fell in love with the world and the people and mythic creatures who live there. The sequel can't come fast enough!

While my taste drifts towards Alice Munro and Margaret Atwood I have to admit I truly enjoyed this story. Lots of twists and turns to keep you up way past when you said you would turn off the light. It is the authenticity of the characters that was the true joy. I look forward to the next book by this author.
