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.
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.
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!
Seems that the author decided to give more emphasis to a new book than closing in a decent way this one.
