THE ROYAL ORDER OF FIGHTING DRAGONS by Dan Elish Blog Tour and Giveaway





SYNOPSIS

Born to... Fight?

Ike Rupert Hollingsberry is haunted by the past because complete strangers won’t let him forget that his famous father died on the set of The Fighting Dragons, a cult favorite that still has people talking. But when he’s attacked by a large locust, like the one that killed his dad, Ike is helped by the geekiest nerd of all, Elmira Hand. Killing the giant locust is only the beginning of the surprises in store for Ike as he is whisked away from New York City to an isolated Florida compound to assume his role as the next in line to lead the Royal Order of Fighting Dragons—that are NOT supposed to exist—and learns his dad’s death was a cover-up for a far greater purpose…  


Praise for THE ROYAL ORDER OF FIGHTING DRAGONS
"…a fast-paced, entertaining story with appealing characters, a healthy dose of action, and a dash of humor." ―Publishers Weekly

My Review

A middle grade read that begins with Ike being an average middle schooler trying to make it through the normal everyday life, turns quickly into a fantasy with dragons, killer locusts, and the continuation of the Royal Order of Fighting Dragons.

Full of action, suspense, and a creative story, anyone of any age can dive into this story and lose themselves completely. It shows how small the world can be, bringing different types of cultures together from around the world to form a friendship built on trust. It also teaches that you can find a friend, where you least expect, and to open your eyes to those who are different from you.

It is a fun and fast paced read, full of humor ,and well created characters that meshed together. Magic, twists and clues along the way, entraps your attention to learn more about how the Order began. And Dragons....I mean DRAGONS!!  Every fantasy story should include dragons.  I really feel that this story will appeal to boys (and girls).

A perfect, genuine read, beautifully written that needs a sequel!
