    If someone had told me after I read this debut novel that she was only 16 years of age I would have not believed them This novel has the level of depth and maturity in plot structure and writing style of someone of advanced years than she has lived All I can say is that if Ariel continues to write like this develop her stories with this vivid imagination she will be an author to watch out for For a debut novel I have been very impressed Her characters are real and believable relational the pace is consistent and keeps you returning with expectation and anticipation for action suspense and intrigue Her good guys are not sueaky clean they have their faults and foibles her bad guys have enough degree of evil to polarise the reader To read go here

    I came across this book when it was being promoted on Facebook in a Christian Indie Authors group I’m in and I decided that it certainly couldn’t hurt to try out a debut Christian fantasy I wasn’t disappointed with my pickPlot – Grade A I have read a lot of fantasy books and I know it is difficult to come up with a completely uniue plot often authors must depend on HOW the plot is carried out in order to achieve that which is different from the other fantasy offerings with similar plots This particular book does have a few elements that are similar to Dragonspell the first book of Donita K Paul’s Dragon Keeper Chronicles mainly the orphan girl who finds the dragon egg and accidentally hatches it However the format and details about the bond between dragon and dragon rider presented in this book is very different as are the circumstances surrounding how Zharah finds the egg so I didn’t feel like I was reading a re write of a book I have loved for years It was a bit predictable regarding certain elements but that didn’t bother me too much There were a few places where I felt the plot was TOO tight since there were several potential subplots that could have been explored as well but received of a brush than anything perhaps they will be explored in the next book The plot was neatly tied up at the end of the book but the next adventure was also hinted at and partially set up which I enjoyedContent – Grade A This is a very clean fantasy especially in regards to language There isn’t a true romance this time around It’s of a crush’s first blush My only personal uibble was that this has been set up to introduce the much dreaded on my part love triangle between Zharah and the two guys she meets in her uest to find her brother I admit I am not a fan of the love triangle so I ended up hoping love potential #2 would die No such luck However I am hopeful that maybe this won’t turn into a full out love triangle since there is a very good reason for Zharah to choose love potential #1 I’ll keep reading just to see if my hopes or my fears are right ;There is violence present in this book The bad guys are evil especially their leader and people are referred to as being maimed or killed However it is all very bloodless except for some minor injuries There is also magic in this book and I was intrigued by the difference having a relationship with the Creator makes for the magic users Those who do not have a relationship might kill themselves if they use than their personal reserve of magic On the other hand those who do have a relationship with the Creator don’t have to worry about burnout and re charging their magic reserve I thought that was a great way to integrate magic without it becoming “god” in that worldSpiritually this book was rather subtle in its use Partially because Zharah does not have a relationship with the Creator and she’s not even really seeking Him yet I would have enjoyed learning about how the religion works when we interacted with the knights I also would have enjoyed a bit curiosity or asking uestions about the Creator on Zharah’s part I did have some reservations about how she still doesn’t seem to have established a relationship with the Creator at the end of the book considering what happened for her personal potential relationship However I can accept this if Zharah’s personal relationship with the Creator or lack thereof is addressed in the next bookTechnical – BIn general this book was very well edited I only spotted a few awkward moments where the wrong synonym is used for the context of the sentence The most prominent was when the evil leader waves healers forward to take his lackey most recent victim of his wrath to the healing wing “to treat to” his wounds Here it should have been “to treat his wounds” or “to tend to his wounds” I already touched on the missed opportunities for the plot to be further rounded out so I won’t say much other than I would have liked to see a bit world development so I could have been able to further immerse myself in the world I also would have liked character development but that is something that can be addressed in succeeding novelsThere were also some places where the writing was a bit too formal and the explanation was too thorough when I would have cut words to tighten things up and help keep the flow steady had I been editing However for a writer who is not only working on her debut novel but is also just sixteen the raw skill is magnificent The technical aspects just needs a bit polish to help Johnson shine at her full potential I was impressed that the language didn’t feel too modern to fit a medieval esue fantasy worldFinal Grade – B or 45 starsOverall I liked this book a lot and I can see that AR Johnson has a ton of potential as an up and coming author It wasn’t a perfect offering even when I take into consideration the fact that this particular book straddles children’s and YA fantasy However Johnson is going on my authors to watch list because I can see so much potential in this first book that I am certain she will be one of the greats for Christian fantasy as she matures as a writer I look forward to reading her next book I would recommend this book to people who are looking for a uick clean Christian fantasy to read or are looking for a family friendly fantasy book to help interest their younger readers in fiction Recommended for ages 9 and up
