I have recently finished yet another wonderful book, this time I turned my attentions to the author Paul Cude and his book Bentwhistle the Dragon in A Threat from the Past.
The book itself is based in modern day times, where dragons, the protectors and guiders of humanities path, live among us. Peter Bentwhistle, and his friends Richie and Tank, are three such dragons, and this story follows them. It focuses on their lives, whilst introducing the long spanning history of human and dragon interaction and the lifestyle of the dragons in their hidden domain. All the time we learn of this magical and wonderful world, we are being drawn into the main plot. Something is terribly wrong, but only Peter has his suspicions, and his investigation yields unimaginable results. The adventure this is a gripping one, filled with suspense and frustrations, it was a book I could barely put down.
I enjoyed the writing style, along with the insertion of humour and fun that was included within the book. I particularly enjoyed the use of Mantras as well as the depth of characters. I must admit that Gee Tee is one of my favourites, I instantly developed a fondness for this character. The interaction and bonds between the characters are very nicely portrayed, and I myself will definitely be picking up the next book in the series.
If, like me, you enjoy a good fantasy, why not look into it yourself, here are the links to Amazon:
