About the Author
MJ Allaire grew up in South Florida. After graduating high school, she joined the Navy and ended up in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, where she met and married a submariner. Three children and ten years later, they moved to Connecticut. She always had a love of reading, and wanted her children to feel the same way. Her oldest son took an interest in dragons, but she had difficulty finding books for him, so she decided to write one, keeping him in mind. Freshly divorced, raising three children and working a full-time job, she wanted to be a positive example for her children and for them to know that, above all, you can do anything that you put your mind to. www.mjallaire.com

Those fantasies from the imagination can include dragons, aliens,
or whatever we wish to create in the world of make-believe. Imagine your
exotic dream one day becomes reality? Tonia, and Diam venture out into
the forrest to gather chickleberries for their Mom, and suddenly they
enter that exotic dream stored in the imagination as they get lost, and
discover a hidden cave in their village. The girls tell their secret
only to Micah, and Nicho, but not to their Mom. Then, the wild adventure
begins as MJ Allaire takes the reader through the most fascinating,
magical dream, beyond any child's imagination. As four children venture
out into the world of the unknown, while exploring the mysterious cave,
they are determined to follow that dream. They are forced to make
difficult decisions as they roam through the land of unexplained magic.
Suddenly, they realize there are needs to be met as they become stronger,
while facing their own fear through a dark, incredible journey. As the
adventure continues, drama reaches its peak, while intelligent, cunning
creatures challenge the children. Unique powers of creatures blossom,
fantasy explodes like the Fourth-Of-july, and the children learn what
the word trust means as they complete their courageous mission through
a surprise quest, beyond their wildest dreams. I would recommend
"DRAGON'S BLOOD" as an excellent read for the entire family. This novel
is as mysterious as Steven Spielberg's dazzling adventure of "The Goonies." MJ Allaire entertains the reader on the same thrilling scale
as viewing the Masterpiece "E.T." The reader becomes inspired while
following the children through the "Circle Of Life" as if we were
viewing Walt Disney's creation of "The Lion King." The clever author
leaves the reader with a question at the end, how far will you go for an
adventure? "DRAGON'S BLOOD" is left open for a sequel as curiosity
becomes a main target of focus. In this delightful tale, there is never
a dull moment, and magical powers light-up the story as if viewing one
of J.K. Rowling's finest in the adventures of "Harry Potter."

Dragon's Blood by M.J.Allaire
Denicalis Dragon Chronicles
Reviewed by Heather Paye
When Tonia, Diam, Nicho, and Micah discover a cave near the village of Uncava they decide to go exploring and see what secrets such a strange cave might hold. Upon entering, they find creatures unknown and known--some life threatening! They even discover some kind of strange stones, they aren't normal, but what do they do?
Muscala, a huge cave snake... a loyal cave snake... wants something, and is determined to get it. Will his conniving words, violent ways, and murderous thoughts get him what he wants?
Dragon's Blood is definitely a great read! I recommend this to the middle grade readers. It's a clean book, but not to the point of sacrificing the high-adrenaline scenes. It's one of those books you read, you put down, contemplate getting up and taking care of the basic human needs, then pick the book back up and continue reading. It's quite addicting. The letters are larger than most paperback books making it an easy read for those new novel readers. The length is perfect, and I can't wait to read the next installment. Readers, if you're a fan of adventure, unknown, and magical creatures - grab a copy of Dragon's Blood today!
The explorers are faced with many decisions and find stones along the way that will lead to a portal. The portal will only open when all of the glowing stones are combined, and only one person can make this happen. When Muscala, the giant cave snake is right behind them, getting ready to make them his meal... it vanishes. Muscala is vexed with the group after they tricked him into believing they actually did possess the Dragon's Blood.
A world of dragons as the story is told lies in wait... don't miss out on book II of the Denicalis Dragon Chronicles.
MJ Allaire pens an interestingly inventive young adult read with her book Dragon's Blood, book One in the Denicalis Dragon Chronicles. The children at times come face to face with their fears as well as discovering what lays in wait inside each new cavern the group explores. A fun frolic in the land of fantasy, Allaire paints a vivid picture with her words that I am sure most young adults will love. 4 Hearts
The story starts off a little slowly, setting the atmosphere and character development, but as the adventure begins the story quickly unfolds and the challenges that our adventurers face are many. They need to rely on their whit, cunning, and courage to take on characters with vast unyielding powers.
The conclusion of the story leaves you grasping for more. I have book two on order and can not wait for it to arrive. It is my opinion that this book is a must read for the young and old alike.
