Kendra Ardnek
I just wanted to say that this is a book that I cannot wait to share with the world. It's the book that taught me how to write, a story with such beautiful themes of love, trust, courage, and forgiveness. I know that Clara and Andrew aren't in the story, but I'm sure that once you read it, you won't be disappointed with the heroes of this tale. ...more
A year and a month ago, Kendra E. Ardnek released Water Princess, Fire Prince , the first book in the Rizkaland Legends. I enjoyed it; it wasn't amazing, but it was creative and a fun read and had a cute main couple and a good theme. I expected roughly the same from Lady Dragon, Tela Du- but when I opened the book, what I found blew me away. Why? I'm glad you asked.

(But, first, a bit of background to this review: I beta-read Lady Dragon, Tela Du before Ir ead it for this review, which basical

I wasn't terribly excited about this book to start with--I wanted book three so I could have more Clarand. But that sort of sentiment? Totally foolish. Because while I still can't wait for book three (and want it even more now), LDTD is AWESOME! Like, way better than WPFP. I didn't think that was possible, but wow. You find out so much about Amber and Granite, and there are Reuben and Petra!

First Reuben. I'll be interviewing him next week, so you'll get to meet him. Reuben is the brother I never

I really loved these books! They were clever and magical, reminiscent of Narnia but yet different. And the romance was absolutely perfect, just how I like it.
Lady Dragon, Tela Du, book two of the portal fantasy series, the Rizkaland Legends- how can I start to tell you about this book? By now, I’ve read quite a few books by the author, Kendra E. Ardnek, and I have to say that this book is my favorite. (In a close second would be The Ankulen , which is a humorous tale of adventure within one’s imagination that packs a powerful message inside its covers.) Kendra’s writing style has improved drastically since her very first books. I enjoy reading her, n ...more
This was a really good read. :) I was kind of debating whether to rate it 5 stars or 4.5. *shrugs* Well anyways, it was a really good book and I really enjoyed it. The main characters are Petra, Reuben and Amber. Along with a few other people. :) Petra and Reuben go through a house and end up in a different world, they are confused and wary, but they would never know what exactly they were getting into. Filled with action and somewhat hilarious at times, this book was pretty good. I liked Reuben ...more

*Spoiler-free review!*

Even though I enjoyed Water Princess, Fire Prince, this book completely blew me away. Here’s just a few of the things I loved about Lady Dragon, Tela Du:

-Around 55% through the book, things started clicking. The crazy thing was, it was two sentences that I connected together and figured out a major plot twist. Not to say that this book was predictable- two of my main theories, about how the Tela Du was going to defeat Amber, were completely wrong, but Kendra did a great job

Hooray for another trip to Rizkaland! I loved the witty dialogue and world building once again. Petra and Reuben had a really hilarious and cute relationship, and (view spoiler). I honestly nearly cried when he (view spoiler). My favorite character is definitely Laura (I'm loving the snippets of her backstory), but I did develop a pretty huge respect/liking/crush on Granite at one po ...more

Lady Dragon, Tela Du is an epic. It’s set in the colorful and imaginative world of Rizkaland – a world plagued with its own problems, not the least of them being Amber, the Lady Dragon. Intriguing characters and stunning plot twists fill the pages of this tale. You’ll be on the edge of your seat as you read.

Writing: Good

The Good:

So, guys, you know the Second Book Syndrome thing-y? Yeah, well, this kicks that in the face! With a metal-toed boot. Um-hm.

Anyways. This was DEFINITELY a worthy sequel to Water Princess, Fire Prince! Like, I just finished both LDTD and WPFP, and I can’t choose which I like better!

I love the ships in this book! Like, they’re all so cute and some *ahem* my favorite *ahem* is adorably awkward.

The characters are all so awesome, and most of them are fleshed out! Petra is really similar to a

Oh my goodness. A perfect follow up to the first book! It was wonderful to see everything unfold and fall into place.

I love it. So much.

We have all these precious characters: Petra, Reuben, Tyler(Petra's bro), Summer(Reuben's sis), Ashna, Noraeto, and dear sweet Laura. And a few people I won't mention due to spoilers.

-Petra and Reuben are a perfect team and I love the little darlings! (not as much as Clara and Andrew though) I related with Petra aLOT throughout the book. And I totally loved Reub

I totally called most of the plot twists. The book still kept me up, though, way past when I should have gone to bed. But I had to finish it so I could focus on my review of Reversal Zone. (At least, that's what I told myself.) At any rate, Kendra has entered my roster of evil authors.

Writing: 4.75/5
Kendra's writing style is very fitting for her personality. Really fun, yet somehow serious, too. It was really well-written. The only drawback was the many typos. Some of them were fixed, but I didn

A good second book, and I look forward to reading the third in the series! I knocked off a star for the characters, while fully developed, I just didn't relate to them. This book has slightly more romance than the first in this series, but it didn't bother me. I love love love the worldbuilding, and the plot doesn't suffer. The flow is a little different from "normal" books, but it never lost my attention. I really enjoyed Lady Dragon, Tela Du. ...more

I hate doing this, but it's about time I DNFed this book. I'm done. It's annoying the heck out of me, it's been almost a year, and I don't want to finish.
I'm giving it two stars instead of one because--I don't know--it could get better? Also, I really like Kendra E. Ardnek. She's a great inspiration to many, even me at one point, and it's amazing what she's done.
But this book is not my cup of tea. I did enjoy Water princess, Fire Prince, but that was also years ago and my opinions have changed

Okay, so the read dates aren't accurate on here, but that's because I was a beta-reader and I don't remember when exactly I read this. So. Without further ado...

This book was fantastic. I loved Water Princess, Fire Prince, but this one knocked my socks off. (Well. It would've, had I been wearing socks.) I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Reuben and Petra...and their powers. Oh my word their powers are adorable and cool all at once.

But not just Reuben and Petra! All the characters in this book are so well devel

I'm not sure I've had more fun reading any book other than Lady Dragon, Tela Du.

Perhaps it was because I first read it aloud with brothers and had a chat group with other readers. Or perhaps it was also because it's a great book. And this is why I love it.

It’s as good as the first book

Or better. It doesn’t suffer from any common second book problems. But then it’s not exactly a second book, since Kendra has been working on it much longer.
It touched on many of the same things, but in a fresh way

This one was fantastic! I can't say too much, because spoilers, but we get a satisfying ending. Loved the themes of betrayal, loyalty and forgiveness. And that characters who are forgiven still must deal with the consequences of their actions. I need more! ...more

“Honestly, I think we ought to try. I mean, if it’s Alphego’s decision and Alphego is really what they call God here … then I really don’t want to be running from something that He wants me to do. I mean, Jonah tried running and only ended up in the belly of a fish, and then he still had to do what God had asked him to do in the first place.
