Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

This boy-vs.-dragon tale, the first in the BeastQuest series, makes for an ideal pre-Hobbitread and sword-and-sorcery introduction. Tom lives in the village of Errinel with his blacksmith uncle; his mother died when he was a baby, and his father left not long after for a quest from which he never returned. When the crops in Tom's village start to burn and the horses turn up dead, villagers begin to suspect a curse. Tom (for whom "the closest he came to thrilling quests was when he ran errands for his uncle") volunteers to travel to see King Hugo and enlist his help. The author packs a great deal of action into this brief tale. When Tom arrives at the palace, he learns that problems extend well outside of his village—others report tidal waves and blizzards, all thought to be the work of "the Beasts." The king reveals that the Dark Wizard Malvel is to blame, and recognizes Tom as the son of Taladon, entrusting the boy with a silver key that can unlock the charmed collar on Ferno the Fire Dragon and release the beast from Malvel's control. This debut tale in an episodic chain of one-beast-per-volume battles (Tom successfully completes this inaugural quest, of course), makes for a promising start to a fantasy franchise with a likable young hero and a refreshingly wide-eyed, old-fashioned approach to the genre. Ages 7-10. (Mar.)

Tom, a young village boy in the kingdom of Avantia, dreams of becoming a brave and decorated knight. When his village experiences extraordinary disasters, the people entrust him to bring their pleas for help to the king himself. Tom soon discovers, however, that his village is not alone; the whole of Avantia is suffering. He quickly undertakes a quest to discover the truth behind these events, finding that there is much hiding beneath Avantia's landscapes and oceans. He must utilize his wits and bravery, along the way making friends who prove invaluable to his mission. The Beast Quest is unlike any other, and it is up to Tom to save the entire kingdom. The novel abounds in quick action, and the plot takes very few detours along the way. This helps young readers to grasp the whole of the exciting story and not get lost in complicated nuances. Placed at important places in the plot, Ezra Tucker's illustrations provide visual clarity. The mood of each perfectly complements the story, suggesting foreboding when necessary and triumph when appropriate. This story tells of a twelve-year-old village boy thrust into extraordinary circumstances with the whole of his world hanging in the balance. Reviewer: Russell Corwin

Meet the Author


Adam Blade is in his late twenties, and was born in Kent, England. His parents were both history teachers and amateur artists, and Adam grew up surrounded by his father's paintings of historic English battles which left a lifelong mark on his imagination. He was also fascinated by the ancient sword and shield that hung in his father's office. Adam’s father said they were a Blade family heirloom.

Sadly, Adam does not have his own Ice Dragon or Ghost Panther. But he really wishes he did!
