What’s with the four stars?
~> The characters present in the book are very beautifully given their description. Each character stands out differently, having their own sets of emotions, virtue and spot as the plot runs around.
~> I love the character of Nathan in the book. He is a very supportive character and is ready to help his friends whenever he can. He has a calm personality and cannot be seen angry or frustrated at all.
~> The story is written in first person, occasionally shifting to third person for different characters. It is also written in present tense and stands out beautifully infront of eyes.
~> The story is fast paced but during a few scenes it seems to run too fast.
~> Recommended for anyone above the age of thirteen. The language is very easy to follow and thus it can also be a perfect book for beginners.
About The Author:
I am twenty-three and married. I don’t have any pets currently, but I am a cat person who’s learned to love dogs as well. Dragons are my obsession, and books have been capturing my heart since I learned to read.
I first started writing in Middle School and published as a hobby in High School (around 2012). I republished to begin my career October 29, 2018.
I’m still learning things as I go, but the longer I’m an Indie (Independent) Author, the more relieved I am that I got so many rejection letters from traditional publishing houses. If you want to know why, send me an email. There are too many reasons to list here, but I’m happy to chat about it!
