My 9 year old and I both loved it!
Upon the death of his wife, Ilfedo returns to find sea serpents attacking the Hemmed Land. He sets out with his comrades and the dragon¿s daughters. Together they slay the creatures. In gratitude, the people deem him ruler of the Hemmed Land. Ilfedo raises his daughter, Oganna, unaware that Specter watches over her in secret. Oganna grows into a compassionate and wise young woman who saves the dragon¿s daughters from certain death and forges an alliance with a race of ancient and powerful creatures. But the Hemmed Land is invaded by an unknown enemy and, while Ilfedo readies his army to search out the enemy, Oganna leads her newfound allies ahead of him. Appleton tells stories like no other. His epic story weaves generations of characters in a mystery of good versus evil. Ilfedo is a focused hero, and Oganna is a warrior. Offspring is a tale of wonder that will keep readers daydreaming about its imaginative characters, creatures, storyworld, and mystery long after they close the book.
