Isle of Dragons The Hidden Library by L.A. Thompson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I have not read the first book however, after reading this one, I hope to continue the series if there is a sequel. The world-building was excellent, and the characters were diverse. I followed Jade through all of the twists and turns of her journey as she is seeking a library to help bring an end to the reign of King Jarrod, who has proclaimed himself the Chosen One. It has all the elements that I consider necessary for a good fantasy. Magic and Dragons with an added steampunk side to it as well. The story offers an adventure that pulls you in and encourages you to join Jade every step of the way.
