I received a free copy of this e-book in exchange for a review. The author has a vivid imagination and I believe she has a strong story line. However, her writing style is awkward and the story is not fully developed in its characterization.

She writes, in many places, in the passive voice which makes the writing awkward and difficult to read. She tends to switch between active and passive voice and while that is an issue, it is not the only issue. She also has several places where her verb tense

Lord Ky'debaul of the Cordan Elves is one ruler in the lands of Orgarlan. His magic is failing and he needs the essessence of a silver dragon, a Time Dragon. He makes plans to destroy one by following a Time Dragon thru a rift which brings him to Earth. He also needs a beastmaster to find the Time Dragon. Aaron is a very special girl she can speak to animals especially Keja the dog and Chancy the cat. Aaron is making her preparations for cold winter months. Aaron used to live with her aunt and u ...more

An apsolutely fanatstic read that would make any author look twice, including giving Sepehen Deas and Paolini a challenge! Any good novel has to be based around a solid storyline and plot which this novel certainly has and alongside Linda's fluid writing sytle it is definately a winner and a really enjoyable read. Suitable not only for any fantasy lovers or science-fiction but a wide range of readers who enjoy great storytelling and a mesmerising plot. I would definately like to read more by Lin ...more

Review: Aaron & Keja: Time Dragon by Linda Nelson
I listened to Aaron & Keja on my kindle and admit I did get
lost a few times and had to go back and read.
Thier was a lot of different characters in this story Aaron is one
of the humans in this story. She can hear and talk to different
animals. Keja is her dog.
Orc's are the good people. On thier world it is against the law
to kill dragons.
Elves want to kill a time dragon and harness its power so they
send it to a different world where

Aaron and Keja: The Time Dragon" is a great book. I would give it 4 stars, and would suggest to young, and older readers. Linda Nelson has created a book to another world of imagination. Tying mystical creatures, and nature together to create an outstanding force, leaves the reader turning the pages. She also adds deep details, describing the animals communication well, and drawing details in your imaganation.
A good read!

After reading some of the reviews on here I wasnt to sure at first...but I liked it I thought it was cute.I think this book would be great for younger kids in grade school.Teens not as much but I am well over a teen lol and I enjoyed it.I think if people look at it as a childrens book the reviews would be much better.While I was reading it I was thinking my son when he was younger would have loved it.

A rather interesting look of a world not our own. This world parallel to our own and different in ways that draws those they encounter to prove their worth.

I won this book in a LibraryThing giveaway.

We begin on the planet Orgarlan with Ky'debaul, an Elven sorcerer. His powers are waning, and they can only be restored by killing a silver dragon. However, if the silver dragon is killed, it could mean the end of existence. Killing a dragon on Orgarlan is against the law, so the elves send the dragon through a rift to Earth (or a planet like it), where it lives in a lake near Aaron's house. Aaron lives with her dog Keja and cat Chancy, both of whom she

I had hopes for this novel since it was the first book I had won from First-reads in some time, but I suppose I was more then a little disappointed by it. The premise was intriguing and it seemed like it would be a entertaining short read, well it was short...and only a tad bit entertaining.

The first thing I noticed about this book was that the writing is very stiff. It felt more like a school paper then an actual published story. I really had trouble picturing anything because it was so forced
Sep 13, 2012 Mirrani rated it it was ok
I found this story to be simple, but somewhat enjoyable. I was very interested in the idea that this is a fantasy plot that takes place in a more modern time, with cars and television. It also isn't often that elves are the bad guys and orcs are the better of the two.

The dragon doesn't really have much of a point in this book, so if you're picking this up because it has a Time Dragon in it, don't bother. Other than being a plot point, like the gold at the end of the rainbow that everyone wants,

I won this book through the goodreads first-reads program. Honestly, I haven't been this confused by a book in a long time, because it shouldn't have made it to the point it has. I'm guessing this is self-published because it's really awful. The story line is good, and could have been very interesting, especially as a children's book. However, there are just so many grammatical errors, switching between first and third person, words spelled wrong, fragmented sentences for this to even be read by ...more

I received the book through First Reads.

I have read many fantasy books set in an alternate world full of elfs, orcs, humans, dragons and other fantastic beings. In all except one of these orcs are not the good ones. Not so in Aaron and Keja: Time Dragon, which is one of the reasons why I wanted to read it.

Lord Ky'debaul, villain and leader of the elves, is after a time dragon. This leads him after it to a different human world. The orcs are aware and three of them Buggane, Barghest, and Spornek

I cannot wait to follow Aaron and her dog Keja on their next journey! The characters in this book all came to life immediately for me! I've read other reviews stating that there was too many characters with too much going on.. making this a hard book to follow at times. I disagree entirely. While there were many characters who all had their own lives going on at times.. Isn't that the realism that we live everyday? The characters were not just idle toons but real-life people whom you came to kno ...more

I was pretty chuffed when I won this giveaway, and was excited to read it. Unfortunately, it was just one huge disappointment.
The shocking frequency of typos, spelling mistakes, bad punctuation and weird grammar made it really annoying to read. There were even a few sentences that were so confused I had no idea what they were meant to say. The author also used a pretty limited vocabulary, sometimes repeating the same word or phrase three or four times in a short paragraph, when there are plenty

This book was really fascinating and exciting, but I thought that the dialogue and sentence structure was rather confusing and that the plot wasn't all that original.

I received this book through Goodreads First Reads and I was looking forward to reading it as the idea of the book sounded good.

I must admit that I have not finished this book so story wise I do not know how this book pans out. However I could not bring myself to finish it as the writing style is really awkward and the spelling is awful, the odd typo is forgivable but spelling 'through' as 'thru' is unacceptable.

The author also does not explain the things that she should explain leaving out det

This authors imaginative story is captivating.

The time element in the story blended with the good/bad Orcs and Elves, and characters you feel you would love to meet makes it an easy readable book for the YA it is recommended for. Having said that I don't think your ever too old to read Aaron & Keja: Time Dragon!

When you sit down to read the book, and I hope you do, open your mind and just let it flow with the story, allow yourself to be taken out of your earthly place and mind travel for a

I won this book in a contest here on Goodreads.

I'm not sure how good the story here is because the writing is so rudimentary, I cannot finish it. The dialogue is cheesy, the prose repetitive and immature.

Typically if a story is this bad within the first 4 pages, it has no hope. I find it sad that I have read so many good fanfiction and yet original work is so devoid of real quality.

Very good story content...

The story does a well job of leading you onto the next event. Keeps your curiosity aroused.

overall the story was well imagined and put together.

I look forward to seeing more stories from Linda.

I also have to note that I received this book free as a goodreads giveaway.
