Children's LiteratureHere is another adventure featuring Chrissie Scott, her dragon Kara, and a plot to take over the world. It might be a good idea to read the first two books in the "Magical States Series" before embarking on this one. Chrissie and her friends Jessica and Henry have saved the world before, and they could be forgiven for thinking that their work was done, but nothing is ever that simple. The evil twins, Larry and Lori Lee, have formed an alliance with Athenor, the Mother of All Dragons. This alliance will let the twins drain all energy-both electrical and magical-from both Earth and the world of magic, while Athenor will gain her revenge on the people who kept her imprisoned for thousands of years. Are you confused yet? Wait. On the world of magic, everyone on the planet is a reversed double of someone on Earth. Chrissie's double is Chris, an attractive young man! And (of course) Jessica, who knows nothing about magic, is attracted to him! This story is much more fun to read than it is to try to explain. There are actually two little dragons, and also a double-dealing cat, whose roles are cleverly written. The Lees find out what the kids from Earth are up to, capture them, and lock them in "a stone dungeon where magic doesn't work." How will they escape? Recommended. 2002, Aladdin, Ages 8 to 12.
