Hey Everyone!! :-)
It's the 18th again, so time for my #IndieBooksBeSeen monthly indie author book review!! Enjoy! :-)
Dragon Lightening by JS Burke:
After the events of Dragon Dreamer, Arak and Scree travel north in search of the fabled ice dragons. On their journey, they meet Drakor, a young ice dragon with a talent for making lightning swords. After finding Drakor and hearing his tale, Scree dives into the abyss to check on their new friend's volcano. What she finds there may change the course of history in three realms. Will these three unlikely comrades be able to ward off disaster? You'll have to read to find out!
Once again, Ms. Burke has created a wonderfully vivid story full of adventure, danger, and lessons for her characters. I loved how skillfully she wove so much of the natural sciences into her fantasy tale, and I also loved how, like in the first book, the characters grew during the course of the novel. As enlightening as the look at the world under the sea was, I think I liked the fact that readers are taken on a journey of personal growth just as much. The messages in this book -- those of friendship, loyalty, kindness, determination, cooperation, and learning to consider other people's perspectives -- are perfect for anyone from 9 to 99. And the delightful descriptions and entertaining dialog are sure to hold your attention. Five stars, and I very much hope there's a third installment in this series.
