Your journey begins in a mysterious 400 year old Elizabethan castle which houses a boarding school by the name of Devonshire. Unbeknownst to its students, the estate is filled with hidden passageways and secretly serves as a platform to worlds beyond our own. CREED GRIFFON is an unlikely twelve year old hero who is accused of abducting ISABELLE POLANSKI, a missing female classmate. Little does he know that hideous Giests are responsible for her kidnapping! As the case against Creed builds, he begins having what he believes are nightmares involving these evil beasts. However, after a daytime encounter with one, he learns that his frightmares are very real! Through the near death experience of his best friend, BURTON WOODS, and impending incarceration, he's thrust into the realm of magic, mystical creatures, friendship and betrayal.
During his journey Creed discovers incredible information about his father and a past he knew nothing about. In turn, he quickly learns he's capable of powerful magic, which is referred to as Craft. But he hasn't perfected his new found skills and finds himself in some very hair-raising situations!
His quest deepens when he realizes he must find the sacred chronicle in order to reclaim full power and knowledge of a past he has forgotten. More challenges arise when he discovers that he's not the only one searching for it, and that a suddenly emerging tattoo might just get him killed. Creed is aided on his adventure by a shape shifting body guard who just so happens to have an insatiable sweet tooth, the DRUIX, TIME BENDERS, and a WAYMAKER that is very proud of his ferret heritage.
Together they battle GIESTS, a BANDOLIX, ROOT SERPENTS, BRIDGE TROLLS, GHEDDONS, the POLICE, FALLON, and DENEGAUL, the core of all that is evil. Time is running out and a race ensues to find the holy writings.

I don’t have kids but I like to read young adult fiction. I was impressed by The Road to Dendura. It’s a great mystery and I can’t wait to read the next one and see how it unfolds. The author did a great job at creating a world I became engrossed in. It is written in such a way that it almost seemed real. Highly recommended!Was this review helpful?

My eleven year old son gobbled this book up. He's read the Harry Potter series and so on. I was glad to see he was interested in a new series because sometimes the right one is hard for us to find. I always make it a point to ask him what his books are about. Sometimes, my time is limited and I don’t have time to check them out personally. After a few discussions, I went on to it for myself. The author is very imaginative creating new worlds and mysterious creatures...It has a lot of action in it along with funny humor and a lot of those spine tingling moments. It is a true good versus evil mixed with a sincere mystery. We both really enjoyed it!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This book was on my daughters Christmas list. She is 13 and used to be an avid reader but not so much anymore. When she asked for it, I was sort of surprised but willing to put out the effort. I purchased it in store over the holidays. She was reading it Christmas day and finished it not long after! She was glued. I did have a hard time finding it in the store though. It is in the teen fantasy/fiction for those of you who are interested. I went to the author's site. Book two will be out this year. You can bet my daughter and I will be waiting for it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This e-book was actually a great read. It came highly recommended on a few blogs so I decided to take the plunge. It's listed as a childrens' book or young adult fiction book but I noticed that a lot of the bloggers were adults as well. C. L. Lewis created an imaginative story with credible characters and noteworthy events. Like any good book, it made me want to settle in for the night and get engrossed in its pages. I was sad to finish it. I was hoping to find the next book in the series but haven't seen it yet. I did go to the road to dendura website and from what I understand, it's not out yet. All in all, I like reading young adult fiction even though I'm in my thirties. Some people may find that strange. But you have to remember that the Narnia series, and the Hobbit series, were listed as such but soon became world wide phenomenons just as Harry Potter did. Suddenly, they went from kids' books to something everyone could enjoy. I think this book is on the same level.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

As a father that cares what his kids read, I give The Road to Dendura TWO THUMBS UP for the creativity, the characters, the story line, and the fact that Creed Griffon is a courageous young boy set out on an incredible journey. Twists and turns, good and evil; this book has more to offer than Harry Potter and has the same "edge of the seat" danger and suspense as The Lord of the Rings! The Creed Griffon website has it for a few dollars cheaper, but this story is definitely one to get your hands on any way you can. I'm waiting for Book Two of the series and I'm sure there will be a movie for this one!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
