A great new fantasy adventure aimed at the young adults market but enjoyable for adults too!
The Land of Dragor: Book 1: The Gift of Charms (Land of Dragor 1) https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1782199241/ref=cm_sw_r_awd_no8Uub0Z63PM5
A great start to an epic new series.
The Land of Dragor: the gift of charms by Julia Suzuki far surpassed my expectations.
It follows the story of Yoshiko, a baby dragon born to the Nephan clan. Yoshiko’s parents just want to be like any other normal dragon, but as he grows, Yoshiko himself becomes aware that he is special. He must decide whether to seek out his destiny – breaking the rules when necessary, or keep his head down and try to get through fire school without being bullied!
This is the first book about dragons I have ever read and I was surprised at how easy it was to feel connected to the the lives of these creatures. Julia Suzuki has created a fascinating world with instantly recognisable personalities that the reader quickly comes to care about. I found it hard to put the book down and, instead of reading it slowly over a week, ended up losing a big chunk of my weekend!
I recommend this to a much wider readership than just fans of fantasy – it has a strong ‘coming of age’ feel to it and explores relationships too – and believe it will be enjoyed by all age groups.
I’m looking forward to the sequel. 😁
Today I have discovered Goodreads- yet another promotional tool available to independent authors! Thanks to Reece Evhans (author of The Seeker Series) who first mentioned it.
It took me a while to figure out how to get my book on there, and it threw me when they asked me to review it! But I eventually realised that you link yourself to the book when you join their author program. I’ve just applied now and am awaiting approval.
Has anyone else used the Goodreads promotional tools to market their work? And if so, did any have particularly good results?
