The fast paced action adventure are what drew me to the first book and this installment in the series did not disappoint! The adventure into the realms of magic, courage and wonder continue in the second book in Kate Klimo’s Dragon Keepers series! Jesse and cousin Daisy are on a quest to keep their dragon Emmy from the clutches of Dr. St. George. In order to do this Jesse and Daisy need to keep track of his where abouts and what he is up to! What they do discover leads them try and foil the disguised dragonslayer’s evil plan of enslaving the mythical creatures around and under Goldmine City and keeping Emmy safe!
This series is certainly a great introduction for juniors who would like to step into the world of magic, dragons and fantasy! I eagerly look forward to the next book!
