Review: Jake & the Dragons of Asheville by Brian Kacica

Here is a summary of what the book is about: The storyline takes place in a very small town in North Carolina. When Jake Winston is thirteen years old he discovers that he has a unique genetic trait... a power coursing through his blood. A power so strong that a special government  agency, ONX, wants. What the government    wants  the government  decides to get: by any means necessary.

ONX agents begin to plot and then act to obtain Jake's secret. Jake's father, who was a local hero, suddenly dies. After the death of his father, Jake's grandfather returns to the area to look after Jake and sends him on a journey. The journey leads Jake to a gated forest near the town. Upon entering the forest Jake comes face to face with a family of dragons. From that point the story explodes: ONX agents begin killing every dragon they come upon in order to discover the power of the blood. What will Jake do? Or, can he do anything?

This is the first fantasy book that I have read and what a treat. There is a lot of action and adventure in the story.

For those of you who enjoy fantasy books you should pick up a copy. This book is great for pre-teens and up. Just the cover should get their interest... it's kind of cool.

There is a surprise in the book but I am not going to tell you where it is. You will have to find out for yourselves.

Happy Reading Everyone!
