The Stolen Dragon of Quanx by Becca Mann
Prepare to be amazed, enthralled and swept away with author Becca Mann’s The Stolen Dragon of Quanx: The Eyes Trilogy. Written to captivate the minds of younger readers, this tale of dragons in a world of fantasy knows no age limit for its audience. In a land where the color of one’s eyes denotes the tribe they belong to and their heritage, a group of teens is brought together to endure trials, travel, treacherous danger and even death. Their mission? To find and steal a priceless dragon egg from a fierce tribe of magical dragons and save their world from war and utter destruction. From different backgrounds, walks of life and filled with learned distaste or mistrust of those who are different, these teens will surmount the insurmountable, suffer loss and betrayal from their own group and learn to trust and depend on those around them.
Will they complete their mission and snatch the egg from the claws of the most powerful dragon ever? Has their quest been a true one or are there even more darkness and evil waiting for them?
Who better to know what will entice a younger reader than a young adult? With the talent and poise of a seasoned author, Becca Mann has shown her gift in astounding detail! There is reason in her style, the chaos is in the action she has conjured and her characters do more than leap off the pages, they breathe, they have emotions and that air of youthful tenacity that perfectly defines their age group.
Ms. Mann does NOT allow us to get bored, lose focus and, heaven forbid, skip a page. Every detail is necessary and you will want to know it. Every fantasy author has their own style and hook to keep their readers enthralled and Becca Mann has it in spades! Tales like this belong in every library, public, private, electronic, and every young reader should have access to a fantasy that allows them to feel part of the story. Did I like this? Do I want more from Becca Mann? Really? You have to ask? YES!!!
