City of Dragons: The Awakening Storm

Coincidences are piling up in Grace’s life… She moves to Hong Kong with her mom and stepfather after the death of her father. An old woman gives her a mysterious egg at the local market. Egg begets dragon and dragon brings bad guys. Grace’s introduction to the new city, a new school, and new friends is turned on its head. Questions abound: Who really is Grace and what connection does she have to do with this dragon and all of Chinese mythology?

Told in bright, bold colors and a large helping of humor, City of Dragons is the first book in what looks to be a great series. I could feel the intensity rising as the pages change form… from simple 6-panel pages to full-page expansive drawings. There’s action and friendship and double crosses… Not a simple plot but one that is infused with science, dragons, and mystery.

I feel strongly that City of Dragons gives readers of all ages the complete package: Brilliant artwork, Taught plot lines, and Characters that I want to follow in subsequent books… Great book, period!

4.5 out of 5 stars.

Thank you to the author for an advanced copy for review.
