The greatest gifts of light in a world of darkness, are children who believe
Looking to escape to a world where ogres, dwarves, unicorns, and fairies exist? You needn¿t look any further than Children of the Dragon. Author Keith Gouveia invites young readers everywhere to rediscover their own magical powers, while tackling darkness for the good of all kinds. Even in a parallel world, bullies exist in many forms, and Balthazar is one such bully. In an act of vengeful greed, he makes a deal with a dark and dangerous force of evil, to deplete the magical powers of all the mystical creatures, and deliver to him their souls. Eager to challenge and replace the current king of Great Germaine, Balthazar accepts, and spreads a blanket of fear in his wake. Enter two young children, Alyssa and Ricky, who make a wish on a stone guardian, a gift from a shopkeeper of The Mystic store. In a flash of blinding light they find themselves whisked away to Great Germaine, and learn of the terrible darkness that has befallen the mystical creatures. With the help of two dragons, they make their way, battling the things only nightmares are made of, unwilling to let their fears lead them astray. A promise is a promise, and they work together in the hopes of restoring the lush and peaceful land Great Germaine once was. Danger lurks at every turn, and they must fight to keep their wits about them. Enchanting and delightful, Children of the Dragon will interest both children and adults alike. Along the enticing pages are lessons about courage, honor, will, trust, and being true to one¿s word. Young readers will identify with the realistic characters of Alyssa and Ricky, and be fueled with a sense of empowerment. Each creature sparks a creative visual page after page. Keith Gouveia has created a fantasy world for the young, and the young at heart to explore. Chances are you will want to frequent the land of Great Germaine, cheering on the characters and creatures, as they work together to restore a sense of peace.Was this review helpful?
