A legend that dates back centuries ago is truly entertaining! Children ages 8 and up will find this story so fascinating. You have wolves, gargoyles, dragons, angels, all the fantasy creatures that will keep your mind racing. Those gargoyles will bite and scratch it's way through this book but the huge head yellow-eye wolves are no push overs, they bite their way too. Jonah discovers who he is and how he became that special person because of his family past. From this discovery Jonah is tied to the Last Great Dragon, or is it? St. Michael the Archangel, why is he involved with the church in Cascob and Jonah? Now we have a charm, Abracadabra charm, framed parchment inside the church. Is it darkness of power? Beneath the spell incantation, a charm. Now I got your attention, read the book to find out what this charm has to do with St. Michael Church in Cascob and Jonah, and the archangel St. Michael. Another thing I have to mention, "Radnor forest" also known, "The Dragon Lair." Legend has it, the last dragon in Wales is held soundly out of sight by the ring of churches which included, St. Michael in Cascob. Wonderful story, profoundly enjoyable and excellent writing that made reading the story simple. Oh one thing, some words I had to query, why? British English and USA English, well you get the jest of it:) Thank you so much, won this book on Goodreads, First Read Giveaway. Darlene Cruz
