Title: Diego’s Dragon, Book 2: Dragons of the Dark Rift
I was lucky enough to be given an autographed copy of this book with the inscription by the Author Enjoy the Battle! At the time I didn’t realize what Mr. Gerard meant.Around about 160 pages into the book I GOT IT! I then could not put it down . I flew right through to the end.Let me say this about that … WOW!!!!
For some weird reason I have always been interested in books about World War II,The American Civil War and other conflicts.It was always the battles and the tactics around them and the Generals involved that I enjoyed learning about. Now on top of that I’ve always read the Fantasy Genre and a lot of them involve Dragons.Usually there might be one maybe two Dragons in these stories.What’s this got to do with anything you ask????
Well if you do indeed like Dragons AND a good knock down drag out fight to the death then this might just be the book for you. *SPOILER ALERT* Picture a World War II Tank Battle between two great Generals (Patton.Rommel) but instead of a few hundred Armored Tanks zippin’ around a Desert shooting shells at each other you have a few Thousand Dragons Zippin around the cosmos spewing Fire and Electricity at each other. Like I said before WOW!
Of course there is a lot more to the book than the Battle but hey The fate of Earth depends on the outcome so it’s a pretty big deal(just sayin’)The book is categorized as Young Adult but I think anyone would enjoy it.Although it is about a young boy Diego that you get to root for and it’s always cool for kids to see the young hero types.It’s also got a helpful Glossary of Spanish words and phrases used in the book, which for me was quite helpful since I don’t speak Spanish and Diego does. Bookroomreviews ( ME) most definitely recommends this book for young ,old and anyone on between.A great sequel to book one. So folks …
ENJOY THE BATTLE!
