Try some for yourself . . . “With that these three dear children wandered further toward the ranch and passed a longhorn buffalo who roamed the field by chance. They strolled by Aunt Jemima’s house, a rustic brown log cabin. On the porch rocked Mrs. Butterworth. Those two were always gabbing. Jack spread out the blanket where the ground was pancake flat. Denny passed out sandwiches. The three began to chat. Wendy’s dream was coming true. Happy tears drippe

The Pickpocket Who Inherited a Goldmine. After his harsh beginnings as a rough-and-tumble orphan on the streets of London, Jake Everton takes his rightful place as the long-lost heir of an aristocratic family with magical powers – his personal quest, to follow in his slain parents’ footsteps as a Lightrider in the age-old battle of good versus evil. In the fantastical nooks and crannies of the Victorian Age, Jake and his friends (including his pet Gryphon!) find no shortage of adventure – righting magic-related wrongs, solving supernatural mysteries, and exploring wondrous new worlds. A Dark Presence… Something stalks a quaint town in the misty mountains of Wales, attacking humans and magic folk alike. Jake and his friends must get to the bottom of it – and in the land of deep, dwarven mines, the bottom can be very dark, indeed. Dive into The Gryphon Chronicles, a rollicking historical fantasy series (with a hint of steampunk!) that’s as much fun for grownups as it is for kids, from the imagination of New York Times bestselling author, E.G. Foley. “A wonderful novel in the same vein as Harry Potter, full of nonstop action, magical creatures, and the reality that was Queen Victoria’s England.” –The Reading Café

MY THOUGHTS:

THE GRYPHON CHRONICLES: THE DARK PORTAL by E. G. Foley is a fantastic Fantasy/Fiction/ Adventure for Young Readers, ages 10 & up set in Victorian era. #3 in “The Gryphon Chronicles” but can be read as a stand alone. However, I would suggest reading the other two in this series, only because it is an awesome series! See, “The Lost Heir” and “Jake and the Giant”. An ex-pickpocket and orphan becomes an heir! Jake Everton, heir of Griffon finds himself and his friends in Wales,on this adventure, where something in attacking humans and the magic folk. Deep within a Dwarven mine,things go bump in the night, and good vs evil. Filled with yet more adventure for Jake and his friends. It also has Dwarfs, fairies, unicorns, mystery, magic, supernatural mysteries, and righting wrongs, Jake also wants to follow in his parents footsteps, and become a Lightrider. Oh yeah, have I mentioned he has a pet Gryphon! Jake’s first year with a family for Christmas is coming up soon! What will be his next grand adventure, I wonder. I will have to keep reading to find out,I suppose. But do be warned, some parts may be a bit scary for younger readers,so if they are reading alone, check on them often. Well written with engaging characters, as the story continues you see new characters, with more magic and more adventures for Jake and his friends. If you enjoy Harry Potter, or maybe even Fairy Tales, you will enjoy “The Gryphon Chronicles”. This is an awesome series, from the first book to this one, no mistaking this author’s writing skills. What a fantastic job of storytelling as the adventure continues! I have enjoyed this series and look forward to the next grand adventure. Received for an honest review from the author.

RATING: 4

HEAT RATING: NONE to a bit scary,maybe,for younger readers

A daring rescue. A difficult choice. Sophie desperately wants to get away from her stepmother’s jealousy, and believes escape is her only chance to be happy. Then a young man named Gabe arrives from Hagenheim Castle, claiming she is betrothed to his older brother, and everything twists upside down. This could be Sophie’s one chance at freedom—but can she trust another person to keep her safe? Gabe defied his parents Rose and Wilhelm by going to find Sophie, and now he believes they had a right to worry: the girl’s inner and outer beauty has enchanted him. Though romance is impossible—she is his brother’s future wife, and Gabe himself is betrothed to someone else—he promises himself he will see the mission through, no matter what. When the pair flee to the Cottage of the Seven, they find help—but also find their feelings for each other have grown. Now both must not only protect each other from the dangers around them—they must also protect their hearts.

THE FAIREST BEAUTY by Melanie Dickerson is an interesting inspirational Young Adult Romance/Teen Fiction. “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” retelling and brilliantly done,if I must say so myself and I do. What an intriguing story of Sophie and Gabe.

A brilliant retelling of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”. Go on a journey to the Seven Dials,Hagenheim Castle,where an evil Queen resides,”Mirror,Mirror, on the wall,whose the fairest of them all” and Hohendorf Castle. Any teen is sure to love this story.

Well written with a great cast of characters,an engaging plot and oh did I mention an evil Queen. A delight to read with a few surprises,and lots of twists and turns.
