Starlighter *review & GIVEAWAY!!* CLOSED

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to cherdon for winning.


Starlighter
by Bryan Davis

In the first novel of a new four-book fantasy series for young adults by bestselling author Bryan Davis, human and dragon worlds collide when Jason Masters enters the dragon planet and meets Koren, a descendant of humans who were kidnapped and are now the dragons’ slaves.

Description: 
What if the Legends Are True? Jason Masters doubted the myths that told of people taken through a portal to another realm and enslaved by dragons. But when he receives a cryptic message from his missing brother, he must uncover the truth and find the portal before it’s too late. At the same time, Koren, a slave in the dragons’ realm, discovers she has a gift that could either save or help doom her people. As Jason and Koren work to rescue the enslaved humans, a mystic prophecy surrounding a black egg may make all their efforts futile. In Starlighter, bestselling author Bryan Davis masterfully weaves fantasy and inspiration into a captivating novel for young adults.

Bryan Davis is the author of the bestselling fantasy series Dragons in Our Midst, Oracles of Fire and Echoes from the Edge. He and his wife, Susie, have seven children and live in western Tennessee where he continues to cook up his imaginative blend of fantasy and inspiration.


MY REVIEW

Even though Starlighter is Teen Fiction I enjoyed it. I found the storyline intriguing and unique and I liked the main characters a lot. I found it to be a very easy read but I did talk to a 13 year old friend of mine who had read it and she said she found all the characters confusing and couldn't remember all their names very well. Perhaps it would be more suited to a slightly older group of teens.

I think that both boys and girls would enjoy this book- especially teens who enjoy the fantasy genre. Personally I hope I get a chance to review the rest of the series as it comes out!

Thanks so much to Zondervan for sending me a review copy of this book.
