Kin Seeker (Book One of Dragon Calling) by N.R. Eccles-Smith
When he awakens he doesn't know where he is or who he is. That might be less confusing if everyone who sees him didn't run as soon as he emerges from his cave. He knows he's an animal and he's big, but why is everyone so scared?
The author graciously gave me a copy of this book to read for review (thank you). It has been published and you can get a copy in either ebook or print form.
This is written for middle graders. It has lots of action, a large variety of creatures, and lots of friendship and bravery abound. It was the dragon that captured my attention but the way the story developed gave me much more to be happy about.
When he realizes he's a dragon and a ghost reminds him of his quest, he sets out on his way. He runs into all kinds of fascinating creatures, including a unicorn. She's helping him get to the land of his kin. They are no longer alive but that's where his quest is sending him. Along the way they meet monsters, make new friends and even find a flying tree. This book makes you use your imagination and I found it great fun!
To give you an idea of just who you might meet reading this book, look at this trailer on YouTube.
This is the first book in the series and it's the beginning of a grand adventure. His enemies have found out he's alive and they will be coming after him. He might not remember the past but he's figuring out the future. I'm wondering what the next book will bring...
