The author has done a marvelous job developing her characters, givingeveryone a voice of their own. The interaction of the characters is oftenhumorous and the dialogue helps bring each character to life. Even the bad guysshine in such a way that one cringes when they are in a scene, but it adds tothe fun and heightens the anticipation of what's going to happen next.
Her descriptive and imaginative writing whisks the reader out of thecomfort of their homes into the magical world of Drakmere, where one finds adragon, an evil witch, a dastardly king, warriors,dream catchers, and terrifying creatures called Shimmers.
In the audio book version, Matt Wolfe, the narrator, does an excellent jobof creating voices for all the characters. This audio book will delight families and may transform bedtimestories for parents and children. Don't be surprised if you hear, "Just onemore chapter" and not just from the children. The ending is a race to thefinish and will leave many breathless.
Your adventure awaits, readers. Don't miss out on this imaginative andexhilarating story. And one can only hope that the nextinstallment in the series will be out soon. Highly recommended."
