"After the brutal massacre in his village, a broken, grieving boy chooses to live with a golden dragon in the wild rather than go to the mountains to be with his own people. If only he had known then what that simple choice meant… Thirteen years later, Keegan, no longer a boy, learns that his younger sister survived the massacre and so sets off to be reunited with her. When Keegan accidentally interrupts a plot against a princess, what should have been a fairly simple trip turns into a complicated struggle for survival. A mysterious elder appears, full of wit and riddle. Mythical monsters shed their fictional skin and hungrily pursue Keegan and his dragon. Haunting nightmares begin to tear at his mind. As he continues on his quest to be reunited with his sister, Keegan is only just beginning to understand what it means to be The Dragons Son."
Are you looking for a fantasy book where the main character does not use magic to win his battles? A book where they leaving you wanting more? A book for the family but especially for teens? Than I have just the thing for you!
Kathryn Fogleman has written a fantasy book that grabs you from the very beginning with the prologue and keeps you wanting more when you reach the last page. Which is just fine since this is the first in her first series! We used this book as a read aloud through out the day and Moe Man fell in love with it! He loved this book so much that when Little Miss started getting a little loud he had to tell her "Shh, you're interrupting the show!" However, the T.V. was not on at the time, so the only "show" was the book I was reading 🙂
Keegan is the main character in this book. He is part of a family that are considered outsiders. They take up residence near the dragon forest where no one else will. When the family is attacked in an attempt to destroy them, Keegan is able to escape into the forest and survive. Violence is in this story…but nothing that would ever make me worried. There is nothing about the violence that compares to other stories out there and there is nothing that is inappropriate for the Jr High crowd at all!
Are you interested? Want to know if Keegan is able to complete his mission? What about Princess Erewhon…and Keegan's life purpose? Well, there is only one way to find out…you have to read the book! Amazon has both the paperback and the Kindle version available for you to read right now! And tomorrow (Thursday 3/6/2014) there will be a Wovlen Madness party on Facebook to celebrate the kickoff of this book! I hope that you will be able to join us from 10pm to midnight Central time.
