The characters in this story are not developed. It doesn't even feel plausable that a girl would leave with a stranger who just knocked her mom out and left her in the floor. The story seems rushed and you gain new characters quickly who are also not developed. They all seem incredibly emotionless. The story line would be good if it were not for poor character development and I might have overlooked that except the writing errors were annoying. I found the dialogue annoying to read. Overall I was not impressed with some things, but I believe with a little work this author may be worth looking into again. My advice if ever asked would be to think about the character and the situation. Then begin to question everything. I did not feel this girl's burning desire to find her dad and I could not see why she was not even concerned about her mom. I need.to.feel the characters. I didn't here.

I thought this was a good "magical" book. Love dragons and how making them take human form was approached. GREAT story line, could be filled out with detail and character development a little more, but with the "hanger" ending, I am looking forward to the sequel. For a first book, I can't wait to see how your writing develops. :) (Notice the Harry Potter books, just got better and better)
My download had many glitches. Not sure if that was a computer issue or what. All the ' apostrophes were squares and some of the words were ran together without spaces, but I read fast enough that I soon just ignored it.
Good read and I was kept interested from the start.

Rowan - Lauren Howell

Rowan is Lauren Howell's first novel. (I think I am right in saying that !)

The story is about a teenage girl, Kelly, that goes in search of her Father.

A complete stranger, Jake appears from nowhere at her home and offers to help and takes her to places totally out of this world, full of Dragon's and magical figures to help her with her search. There is more to Jake than first meets the eye!

Apart from the adventure that Kelly embarks upon she also develops some lovely friendships along the way as well as some tough situations to overcome!

Lauren has written a great book with lots of exciting twists and turns that keeps you reading and wonder what happens next. There are fab descriptive passages full of detail around the people or the places. You can't help feel that you are actually there.

For such a young author, Lauren has demonstrated a wonderful skill at story writing and keeping the reader wanting more. I believe we will be reading many more of the Lauren's books and wouldn't be surprised if the Rowan saga continued.

Can't wait to read Rowan to my daughter as I know it will really capture her imagination also.

Well done Lauren!

I found the story to be exciting enough to read it from beginning to end in a very short while. The story itself was good - and I enjoyed it.

The idea of a girl suddenly being asked to join a boy on an adventure who claims to be a dragon caught my attention - add in Atlantis and a magical world, and I was willing to give it a shot. It was a fun story that hummed along at a good pace so you stayed around in spite of the many grammar errors and abrupt scene changes, unless you really get offended by editing issues .... such as the dwarves going to rescue the dwarves (instead of the elves).

There were also a lot of spots that left me shaking my head ... she got dropped into the ocean in the middle of a storm and still had her back pack with the dragons shoes when she woke up on the shore? Wouldn't it have drug her under and drowned her? or maybe have been dropped to the bottom of the ocean?

I never really figured out the scenes with the tree houses with Sky either ... it needed more, or maybe less.

There was also a lot of repetition of comments ... they get to a stream, and one gets a drink and then the next one gets a drink and then the next one, and then they all get a drink.... .... there are several spots like that.

But the ending left me with a frown ... I didn't mind the abrupt ending or the sudden shift to weeks after (although shifts like that should have had a chapter break - or something - to warn us that a scene change was coming - I could sometimes get several pages of confusion before I finally tripped on a clue that made me realize that we had changed scenes. BUT ... they are setting up for a big fight and the whole thing is so anti-climatic ... Like being excited to go to a hot air balloon show and finding out the balloons are toys.

It has a lot of potential. It is a great story, just needs a tad more polishing for readability.

Kelly Foster is a teenage high school student. Ever since her father disappeared she has stopped caring much about life. But that could change when a dragon called Jacinth disguised as a human turns up at Kelly's house and tells Kelly, that he can help Kelly find her father. Jacinth tells Kelly that her father is from another world, a magical world called Rowan. Kelly's father is one of the three last men who can wield the magic. They are called the Scimerians or the shimmering ones.

Kelly starts out on a magical adventure with Jacinth to find her father, meeting many interesting fantasy characters and places.

This is a Young Adult fantasy novel. The author Lauren Howell has got some great ideas and the story as got potential to develop and it will be interesting to see these ideas progress and develop over the series.
