The author has done a marvelous job developing her characters, giving everyone a voice of their own. The interaction of the characters is often humorous and the dialogue helps bring each character to life. Even the bad guys shine in such a way that one cringes when they are in a scene, but it adds to the fun and heightens the anticipation of what's going to happen next.
Her descriptive and imaginative writing whisks the reader out of the comfort of their homes into the magical world of Drakmere, where one finds a dragon, 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 job of creating voices for all the characters. This audio book will delight families and may transform bedtime stories for parents and children. Don't be surprised if you hear, "Just one more chapter" and not just from the children. The ending is a race to the finish and will leave many breathless.
Your adventure awaits, readers. Don't miss out on this imaginative and exhilarating story. And one can only hope that the next installment in the series will be out soon. Highly recommended."
