REVIEW: Return to Finndragon's Den by Richie Earl
Series: Tales of Finndragon #2
Author: Richie Earl
Published Date: 5/29/13
Publisher: self published by author
Rating: 3 1/2 stars
Summary: Welsh siblings, Megan, Emma and Scott are home and reunited with their mother having been told never to return to Dafydd’s Kingdom. The problem is that the children haven’t found their father. There’s also the matter of the prophesy about the siblings defeating the evil wizard. How can they stay away when the Kingdom needs them?
Review: I'd like to thank the author for allowing me to read both books in this series in exchange for an honest review.
This book picks up a few weeks after the first book leaves off. Even after months of not reading the first book, it was extremely easy to pick right back up where I left off with no confusion. Maybe it was because of this, that it was easier this time around for me with the Welsh names and British jargon.
I liked how the author was able to close the series with a happy ending all around, but it was almost too neat. , too well wrapped up. From the final battle scene to the last page, it was only a few pages and so much was wrapped up in such a short amount of space.
The pace of the book was great. As soon as it started to slack off, the pace picked right back up with some new calamity.
This would be a great book for kids from 9-15, and if you're an adult who likes YA fantasy, it would be good for you too!
