Three children racing against time, desperately searching for their missing father.
A medieval kingdom cursed by an evil wizard.
An ancient legend beneath our very feet.
The Legend of Finndragon’s Curse is the first book in a unique, two book fantasy adventure series and is a fast paced, engaging and thrilling page turner. The story races along with plenty of twists and turns as it heads for the prophesized confrontation between the children and the evil Finndragon himself.
Combining wizardry and magic with modern technology and containing magical animals and terrible demons, The Legend of Finndragon’s Curse is a rollercoaster of emotions that will make you laugh out loud and then fight to hold back the tears, as the children race against time to rescue their father. In doing so they have to kill Finndragon and put an end to the dreadful curse.
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange of an honest review.
The Legend Of Finndragon's Curse was undoubtedly a very enjoyable read. It centers around three kids on the hunt for their missing father. What follows is an epic adventure to a demonic land, an adventure well narrated by the author. The plot is a unique one, and what instantly grabbed my attention was that though the author has weaved a fantastical world filled with wizards and magical creatures, he avoided turning the plot into something unrealistic. The kids are ordinary - no superpowers, no magic whatsoever. And that was what I truly liked about the book. Nowadays you see young adult fantasy books where the main character's graced with extraordinary superpowers or magical abilities. In my opinion, that renders the story unrealistic. But The Legend Of Finndragon's Curse is devoid of such nonrealistic characters - what makes this even better is that the legendary aspects neatly dovetail with the modern aspects; yes, technology goes hand in hand with the magic in this series! The ending was a definite cliff-hanger (I so want to share it with you guys, but it'll spoil things for you!) and I eagerly await the next installment. Moreover, I'm certain that the sequel will grab five-star ratings all around!
