Young 9 year old Tara on vacation with her parents becomes ship wrecked on a beach in a strange land after a very violent storm. Everything is so big even the people. After being rescued she finds herself in Giant Land under the protection of Queen Cheetaka and her 7 year old son, Montek. The giants are so warm and kind to her.

This is a very well developed story with so many twists and turns I was amazed. The story is so well told that you feel it wrapping around you. The descriptions are very d

She eagerly awaits arrival in hopes of being reunited with her parents, but what she finds is utterly amazing. Far from home in a region inhabited by giants, Tara gains favor with th

I really enjoyed this book. If I could give half stars I would have given it four and a half instead of just four stars. Anyway I found the story to be very fast paced and the characters enjoyable. I especially loved that the giants were friendly. Before this the only book I had ever read with a friendly giant in it was The BFG. Giants, especially friendly, don't tend to be chosen too often to be main characters in books so this book also felt very unique to me.
The only thing I didn't like abou

Tara has a really big problem. Literally! One minute she's enjoying a cruise with her parents and the next she finds herself lost in a forest of gigantic proportions. Tara soon comes into contact with a race of giants, who are as amazed by her existence as she is of theirs.

As she adjusts to this giant world, she becomes embroiled in a plot to overthrow the peaceful kingdom of Queen Cheetaka, Queen of the giants. But Tara soon discovers that when it comes to courage and determination, size doesn

Note: I was gifted an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influenced my opinion of the book.

This is a very enjoyable and imaginative story, which is well written, with some excellent descriptions, and a very creative plot. The world building and character creation are wonderfully done, giving you a fantastic mix of characters, and a world that's described so clearly you can easily imagine yourself there.

**SPOILER FREE**


Another good book from an amazing author! I have had the privilege of reading from this author for awhile and every book I read from her has been good. The plot of the story and the characters are well thought out. She knows how to draw her readers in. This is an author that you really want to check out!

WOW! What an adventure story that Tara went thru...!

I enjoyed this even though it seemed to take forever to get through all of these pages to reach the end of this ebook. Therefore, I would like to recommend this ebook for five stars and for kids ages 9-14. I received this free and in return, here is my honest review. Great job Gita! By Angela
