Hello verla p,
I hope that your books are exciting and satisfy your thirst for adventure. Sometimes after a good book I miss the characters like I would miss a good friend.
Knights of the Dragon comes with a BONUS … the first three chapters of The Saucer Club.
Knights of the Dragon is an exciting tale of knights, wizards, romance and dragons. The adventure to save Leeander is on! When an exceptional baby dragon is born will it change everyone’s destiny?
A dragon named Ryxa befriends a boy only to discover that his kingdom will soon be conquered by another and the boy is doomed, and so to save him and his people she hires knights to go on an adventure with her and the boy to find magic.
Leeander’s knight Stone is sent out to capture a wizard in an attempt to defend the kingdom while trying hard to keep his eyes off princess Alexa, who insists on going with them in pursuit of a sorcerer.
Meanwhile, a red dragon named Ella falls for a black dragon, which is taboo, and she tries hard to resist his irresistible charm. She doesn’t want her life to be left in ruins because of bonding with a black dragon.
Unrealistic or not my writing gives me hope. But with something like 50 000 books published a month it is a little discouraging. I didn’t think there were that many writers out there. I might have guessed 500 books a month but 50 000?
Please check out my author’s page.
I really liked Sara's Key. I didn't have to wait long to get it at our library which is unusual. I noticed you read Suite Franicaise. Did you like it? I started it but just couldn't get into it much. It's one of the few (maybe only) book I've started and didn't finish.
There is a lot of information about the history of DR so maybe that is the footnotes. When I listen to a book I like to have the actual book so I can see how the author wrote the book. I didn't this time. I guess that was a mistake. I like audio's because they talk with the accents, etc. which is fun. I did think there was a lot of swearing which I don't like but thought maybe it was necessary for the culture.
Ya Bill Bryson is hilarious isn't he? I've been meaning to read more of him as soon as I get a chance. I enjoyed Short History so much. Oscar Wao was a challenge to connect with for me. I enjoyed Diaz'z very unique style, and the cultural undercurrents were really intriguing, however I felt a little alienated by them at times too. I guess I was expecting something more since Time magazine rated it the best book of the year. I rely on critics too much though. haha How did you feel about Oscar Wao?
