Red Dragon Academy Book I

Seven Children, Seven Powers. One Enemy.

Addy Walker is a normal California surfer girl until her mother dies and her British aunt enrolls her at a boarding school called Red Dragon Academy in Wales. At first the school seems okay, if a little weird. Which other school has a sun-day when it's not raining? But when Addy stumbles upon a hallway that leads to a different and horrible part of the school she begins to have her doubts.

Addy has always had vivid dreams but now these dreams are becoming frighteningly real and she has a hard time telling dreams from reality. Was it really only in a dream that she visited the cold palace and met the man who wants her captured? He calls her a dreamwalker and it seems that this is a special and dangerous power. Is Addy really able to move between two worlds or is she finally cracking up?

Dreamwalker is the first book in the Red Dragon Academy series and in it we meet Addy, as well as snooty Pippa, brainy Raj, cheeky Sam, serious Coby, shy Gwyllum and worldly Celeste�all who may have been brought to the school because of their special powers. All of whom may be in mortal danger from a terrifying tyrant who calls himself The One, in a land that seems a lot like Wales, but isn't.

For all the YA and adults out there, this is an adventure to enjoy from page one. This book grabs your attention and keeps it until the end. Then you are left waiting for the next book and next adventure. I really enjoyed the story line and would encourage anyone looking for a bit of fantasy mixed with adventure to read Dreamwalker and share.

I read this as fast as I could, staying home (legitimately!) sick from work. While I'm far from YA, I found it to be riveting, and once I had finished it I just wanted to go back and be in that world again. The characters are well-drawn, and it's both funny and suspenseful. If you like British boarding-school books this may very well be a good choice for you. I am eagerly anticipating book two, to see what happens to the seven friends and their counterparts in the world at the other end of That Hallway.

My Review: This mother and daughter writing duo have managed to capture the magic and adventure of Harry Potter and the Fantasy of Percy Jackson. the World of the Red Dragon Academy is brought to life in minute detail through their words. The characters are well developed and diverse. although from different ethnic and social backgrounds they all have their magical backgrounds in common. The scenes are beautifully done and engaging. Drawing readers into a make-believe world that soon seems as real as your own home. take a few hours to drop in on The Red Dragon Academy. You may find yourself wanting to stay soon. My rating of Dreamwalker is 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Dreamwalker by Rhys Bowen and C.M. Broyles is a cute and magical children’s book. Addison “Addy” Walker just lost her mother. Her aunt, Jean Walker, is her new guardian. Addy has to move to England (from California) and go to boarding school (her aunt is an executive who travels frequently). Addy has been having strange dreams (which her mother said were psychic or prophetic), but does not know what to make of them. Then while her aunt is looking up various boarding schools, she gets a pop up for the Red Dragon Academy in Wales (now Addy’s dream about whales makes sense). Since they are willing to accept new students (it is October), Aunt Jean hustles them onto the next train. Aunt Jean likes the school (likes that they will take Addy immediately) and leaves Addy in their capable hands. Addy discovers that the headmistress, Miss Neves has a pin just like Addy’s necklace (dragon with stones). Do you think it is a coincidence? Addy makes friends with her roommates Celeste du Bois (who is French and her mother is an opera singer) and Phillippa “Pippa” Masters (from Kent). Turns out that all the girls were adopted (another coincidence or part of the bigger picture). Addy’s dreams have been taking her to some unusual places. A place where everyone wears white and there is a mean man named Lord Grymur. He was not very happy to see Addy and ordered her captured. Thankfully, Addy wakes up before she can be captured. Who is Lord Grymur? How could he hear Addy’s thoughts? Was it a dream? Addy also sees a little red-headed girl named Twigg in one of her dreams. The girl is so helpful and friendly. Then Addy wanders down a supposedly haunted corridor. Her eyes do something strange and she is on the other side of the mirror. She runs into Twigg who helps her. Twigg mentions being a Fareeth. What is a Fareeth? Is this part of the school (Addy cannot quite wrap her head around the part about the mirror yet)? Why are the children scared in this part of the school? Why does know one wear green? Something strange is going on. Dreamwalker is a fun and magical children’s book. It is a great story for children age 10 to 13 (I would have loved it when I was that age). It has magic, dragons, the good guys, a mystery, and a villain. I would give Dreamwalker 4 out of 5 stars. Dreamwalker has a charming ending. Dreamwalker is a great chapter book for children that are not yet teenagers (or for us adults who are children at heart). I received a complimentary copy of Dreamwalker in exchange for an honest review. The review and opinions expressed are my own.
