About the Author
Kara Howell lives in Aurora, Colorado with her husband and four children. She homeschools three of her children. Her love for youth, the Bible, learning, and teaching are what prompted her to write The Chronicles of Kings and Dragons. She also enjoys playing the drums, riding horses, playing video games, photography, and reading. She is also a huge Doctor Who fan. No seriously, with the help of her dad, she turned a kitchen cabinet into the tardis and hung it in her bathroom, right above the toilet.

Fortunately his uncle is a great storyteller and provides some much needed entertainment for Brehane in the form of recounting Biblical history night after night. He tells of Hannah and Samuel, Saul and Jonathan, David and Goliath.
But these stories of familiar Biblical characters are told in a way that will surprise and delight you. Be prepared to meet dragons, trolls and sorcerers in this story within a story and always remember the history of the prophets, priests and kings of Israel.
I enjoyed stretching my imagination as I read about the land of Flasha Mura and being introduced to fun new words like jambo, kika and spronket. I look forward to reading the next book.
Howell introduces us to Brehane, a teenaged Gisbon boy who works as a shepherd in his father’s fields. He is plagued by an invisible creature who is killing his flock. Brehane must protect his flock and himself from this monster.
I especially enjoyed the “story within the story” where Brehane’s uncle Mihret narrates. He tells the “histories” as biblical accounts of Samuel, Saul, Jonathan and David but with strange creatures including trolls, dragons, and hooved Philistines.
Howell weaves Biblical history into fantasy fiction that may help children to develop an interest in reading the Bible.
I received this book in return for my honest review.
