Disclosure: I was asked to do a review of this book by the author.

A good story about wizards and dragons for all ages.

A 14-year-old girl is trying hard to believe what her father has told her about Kimyra. When a creature she has never seen shows up, she lies so that she can have her own adventure. This is the second book of the trilogy.

The heroine is a strong-willed girl, who has decided to have her own adventure. This story is exciting, fast-paced, and might have you holding your breath while some of the action takes place. It has all the elements of the first story, but the heroine has much more self-confidence. The description of the shadow world of Kimyra was excellent. I was not ready for the story to end when it did.

Rick Just writes because stories are in his head, and need to come out. Good books aimed at teens and young adults can be hard to come by. This story shows the young reader that persistence can overcome the challenges in our lives, even when those challenges seem to be overpowering.

I would recommend this story to teens and young adults. It is a very well written, fun to read book. If you have not read Wizard Chase by this author, I would recommend reading it first, it will help you to understand the context better. This is the second book of the series. I have grabbed the next book of this series, I need to find out what happened to Kat.

A good story about wizards and dragons for all ages.

A boy falls into a lava tube, and is mysteriously transported to a different planet. Magic, wizards, dragons, and all kinds of really neat creatures await discovery in an unknown land. If he can survive long enough, he will discover the secret of magic and return to his home.

This story has all the elements good reading for teens and young adults. The language used and explanations given are very good. The author has given the plot enough twists to keep the reader involved. The readers’ imagination will make the story come alive. I would have liked to see the hero a bit stronger in this story. He needs a lot of encouragement to continue on the mission.
