say in the matter, Andy is unexpectedly and magically transported from
his home. He finds himself in the Land of Oomaldee, facing mortal danger
at every turn as he seeks to find a scale from a rare red dragon, the
most ferocious of dragon species, to break the curse and save his life.
Blast of the Dragon's Fury by L.R.W. Lee
You know how you are always TRYING to set a good example for your children by reading and reading and…well you get the idea. Show them what else they can do with their tablets or better yet, let them feel the joy of a book in their hands. Blast of the Dragon’s Fury by L. R. W. Lee is a journey into a fantasy world filled with more than just mere creatures of fables. Every child loves the idea of a dragon, right? Imagine a multi-headed dragon, a wizard/magician related to Merlin, a king cursed to live forever in a realm always shrouded in fog, three royal ghosts and a young boy whose imagination is more real than the hostile reality he faces every day.
It seems Andy is of royal blood and distant ancestors from the After Life cursed a young boy who wanted nothing more than to be king and stopped at nothing to get his wish. Now it’s up to Andy to help break the curse and set the king and his realm free to prosper and grow. But could there be someone who does NOT want to see this happen? Will they try to thwart the mission Andy is on? Dragons and giants, flying horses, oh my!
L. R. W. Lee has created a world that will inspire children to enter and feel each scene, every action and listen to every word spoken. There are lessons to be learned for young and old alike, but you don’t have to tell your children that right away, let them figure it out when you discuss the book with them! Andy’s way of seeing things is that of a ten-year-old child, and to feel his pain was awful, but to feel the joy and new self-respect he was gaining, was priceless. A wonderful book to read with your child or to let them read it to you!
