Overview

When East and West combine…

Half-Chinese, half-Australian, Liz is not interested in her father’s ancient Tao wisdom, or his cryptic tales. She is more concerned with environmental issues—particularly the plan to mine one of Australia’s great landmarks, Wave Rock. Her father’s latest gift, a Chinese calligraphy pen, seems set to take its place in her bottom drawer forever.

Then Wave Rock is blasted open by something more than a mining operation, and Liz finds that she must battle monsters from ancient times as well as creatures from other worlds, all intent on destroying Earth. She must call on all her powers, from both her Eastern heritage and her Western upbringing, to save her world. Her pen becomes her way into a new and magical world, and Liz discovers she has powers—and allies—that she never could have guessed.

An exciting, fast-paced tale that combines the wisdom of ancient tradition with the pace of a Kung Fu movie and brings them to life in contemporary Australia, this exciting tale takes the best of two cultures and blends them to open up a new world of adventure and mystery.

More geared toward young teens, Dragon's Pupil's is a quick paced tale with magic, adventure and mystery. Liz learning something from her dad's stories was educational and the painted backdrop of beautiful China was a definite attention grabber. However, the characters themselves were not three dimensional. They needed more depth, more emotion in their characteristics. That said, obviously the author has great knowledge about Kung Fu and it shines through in his writing. If you like reading an adventure story, or learning about other cultures, then definitely give this book a whirl. It really is educational and fun!

think this couldve been a WAY better book if there was way less details! Also, they couldve introduced the characters. I couldnt tell if they were 2 or 42. It was really random with bird attacks and dogs climbing trees. Not a very well organized book :(

The Sword Guest was a fun and interesting read. I wasn't sure at first what I thought of this but by the end I enjoyed reading it. Liz, her twin brother Henry and their friend Sue are 14 years old. In their spare time they take karate lessons and are concerned with environmental issues. Since they can remember Liz and Henry have been listening to their father's stories about Chinese culture. One day when they are out enjoying a picnic with their families they find out that things are not what they thought. They discover things about their karate teacher, themselves and their culture. As the story goes along Liz leaves Australia for a few days to see what she can find out in China. This all leads up to the dramatic ending. Will they be able to save their families and themselves? I don't want to give anything away so I suggest you read it, I think you'll enjoy it. This is geared to a younger reader but I'm in my 30's and I enjoyed it. It was somewhat of a change from what I normally read. This did not have romance which I love in books but it was not needed in this one. There was not a lot of character background or development but the action and adventure kept me happily reading to the end. This e-book was provided to me by the author for review. This did not affect my review in any way.
