Monday Review by the Book Dragon: Imaginative fantasy that evokes Narnia!

The Book Dragon has reviewed The Tethered World by Heather L. L. FitzGerald and gives it 5 claws!
My review: "4.5 stars for this imaginative, witty adventure reminiscent of Narnia. I love that the story features a homeschooling family (since we were one) with an autistic child who has a special destiny. There are Trolls and Ogres and other scary creatures in this subterranean magical world along with Gnomes, Dwarfs, Elves, Fairies, and Nephilim. It's fun to experience this story through the eyes of the MC, the oldest child in the family though the climactic battle was over too quickly and too easily. Otherwise well-written with a steady, unfolding pace. I'm glad there are more books because this world and the characters can easily support a larger story."

Monday Review by the Book Dragon: Fast-paced, gritty historical fiction

The Book Dragon has read Susan Peek's Saint Magnus: The Last Viking and gives it four claws!
Here's my review: "This was an interesting slice of history from the Dark Ages about a saint I had not previously known about. Teen boys will like the fast pace and action. The title character is portrayed sympathetically, and many of the other characters are shown in three dimensions. The frequent use of modern terms and slang, especially in the characters' speech, was a distraction to this otherwise well-written story."
