"'The Crusade has begun'...

"There's an old myth in the Archipelago," he went on softly, shaking his head. "A legend, really...I recall it mentioned a Crusade, but those events happened seven centuries ago. We always thought it was only a story."

This is a book you will not want to put down until the end. Evil has struck again in the Archipaeligo, and old enemies return. It's up to the three Caretakers of the Imaginarium Geographica to set things right once again.

"Search for the REd Dragon" is a wonderful second installment in what is shaping up to be an incredible series that is worth keeping on the shelf for re-reading.
Once again we are wisked away into fantastic adventure with CSLewis, JRR Tolkien and Charles Williams, who are caretakers of a wonderful book that details the layouts and holdings of imaginary lands now seperated from "reality."
The book is full of a good mystery, plenty of colorful characters and interesting lands. This time we are trying to figure out why all of the children of the Archipelago and the Underneath have gone missing. With wonderful allusions to Greek Mythology and a strong tie to Peter Pan tales of old, this racing plot will leave you turning pages.
I must warn you though, dont step away from the book too long. The plot twists and amount of characters is a hefty sum. I came back to it after miss placing the book month ago and it took me chapters to make sense of anything again. And this is my only qualm with the book. I love all the allusions and tie-ins that Owen makes with classic literature young and ancient, but in this volume they are so numerous and the mystery so ravelled that you find yourself racing through a world you wish you could enjoy more carefully and at the end, you are satisfied but wondering a little bit of "how did we get here?"
A great book that leaves me eager to continue the series. I only hope Owen slows down to paint a richer story and weave a deeper tale....

A rising fad that readers are lapping up is the interesting idea of re-writing old classics, with fantastics such as The Looking Glass War, Peter and the Starcatchers, and a few other select novels. Among them is James Owen's Chronicles of the Imaginarium Geographica, a world where authors and visionaries have come for centuries to be caretakers of this mystical world of things that have inspired fantasy of our worlds. In this sequel, John, Jack, and Charles team up again to find the Dragonships, which have somehow slipped into the unknown. This book is suspenseful, with enough fantasy to keep you satisfied, and more than enough references to literature. It keeps you on the edge of the seat until you've fallen off as the book takes an invigorating turn, and keeps you holding your breath to the end. If it were possible, this would 6 stars, but the Rules do not allow this. Please, do yourself a favor and READ THIS.

I love fantasy books such as this and Eragon, and this book even makes book reports fun. I wrote way to much about the details in my book report. It was a bit hard to follow at times, but i love this book nonetheless.
