Overview

Antigua: The Land of Fairies, Wizards and Heroes (Part 1) is the first of a trilogy. This story is a fantasy with magical characters such as a Sorceress, a Dragon, Fairies, Wizards, Knights, Kings, Queens, Pixies, and Gnomes. Here is a sample from the book:
Suddenly, there were black clouds in the sky. Everyone heard a loud noise coming from the sky and they all knew that Voltar the Dragon was coming. King Artor yelled out, "Daughters, Voltar comes! Get ready your weapons! The time has come for you to fulfill the prophecy!" Princess Sasha, Princess Trina, Princess Alexandra and Rebecca walked up ahead of the army and lined up together in a row. They looked like warriors! Rebecca was not afraid! She took a deep breath and got her weapon ready for the task that lay ahead. She understood the prophecy now and had faith in herself and the Princesses. They each pulled out their bows and prepared to kill the dragon. Fire came out of his nostrils and his mouth. Princess Alexandra handed each of the other girls one of the special arrows that they had gotten from the Queen of the Unicorns. All four of the girls pointed their bows up into the air and waited for Voltar to come nearer. Voltar let out such a loud noise that the ground shook! Then fire came right out of his nostrils. The Wizard Thandor held his mighty wand up toward the sky and yelled, "Mighty clouds of the sky, I call upon you to bring forth lightening to destroy the Dragon Voltar!" Large lightening bolts came out of the clouds toward Voltar. One lightening bolt struck Voltar and wounded him, but it didn't kill him!

    April Fools?

    I picked up this book during my brief, but devastating, post Harry Potter depression. Perhaps that explains why I so much as looked at it. Not only do the authors completely ignore the rules of grammar, but they also seem to delight in confusing the reader with half-baked plot lines and awkard-to-pronounce names, such as Vorltrarr, Aurthorr, and Thandorfur. But every story has mistakes. Rrright? Placing exclamation marks after every sentence seems to be trademark of this story. Unfortuanately, it only serves to further repulse the reader. Here is an excerpt: The Dragon Vorltrarr let out such a loud roar that everyone in the easternmost, westernmost and southernmost kingdoms in the Land of Antigua heard him! Then the gigantic creature spit out fire right from his nostrils and then his mouth! The creature flew through the skies like a rocket! The creature had only one thing on its mind. It wanted to destroy the entire village! And the reader wanted to throw the book in frustration! She had only one thing on her mind. She wanted to curl up on the floor and die! In conclusion, this book is a complete and utter waste of time. Unless, of course, it is actually an elaborate April Fools joke cunningly disguised as a book and is waiting for the perfect moment to jump out and say, 'I tricked you! I tricked you!' and laugh at the gullibility of our generation. But I doubt it.

    This book is great for 9 to 10 year olds

    This makes a good children's book. Kids 9-10 years old will appreciate this book. It is not mature enough for older teens. They would hate it. The writing is simplistic enough for kids to understand. There is a little magic, wizards, dragons and adventure that kids would appreciate. If you are looking for a post Harry Potter book this is not it. If you are looking for a great childrens book for your kids, this is it. They would love reading it! I give this a 5 star rating for kids!
