This week’s featured author is Ashley O’Melia.
Welcome to The Wanderer’s Guide to Dragon Keeping. You no doubt have stumbled upon this book due to a great need, whether realized or otherwise. You are a very select individual, placed in a very exclusive position of responsibility. Dragon keeping is not for the faint of heart.
Aubrey Goodknight is alone. Orphaned at a young age, she long ago stopped believing in the fantasies and mythical creatures she had so loved as a child. When she’s diagnosed with breast cancer, she’s certain things couldn’t be more desolate. That is, until she stumbles across The Wanderer’s Guide to Dragon Keeping, which changes her life completely. Raising a baby dragon in a modern, non-magical world isn’t a challenge she’s sure she’s up to. Now, Aubrey must learn that seeing isn’t always believing, but believing can be the most powerful kind of magic.
Goodreads reviewers are saying:
“Great writing, characters are very likable. I give it five stars!”
“A great light fantasy read! Can’t wait for further adventures of Aubrey, Ben, Huho, and Driel.”
“It quickly turned into a wonderful fairytale like story that would be wonderful to read to my nieces . . . I can’t wait for more!”
