I had the privilege to read an ARC of Roses in the Dragon's Den. This book was SO MUCH FUN!! Family. Adventure. Magical worlds. Pirates. Well-written villians! Dragons!

The adventure was non-stop from page 1. Jacob Devlin did an amazing job keeping me turning the pages. I loved the family dynamics between Uncle Diego and the twins, and their quest to take care of each other no matter what . . . even if "Here there be dragons!"

Devlin's voice really shone with this story. I can't wait to find out

Boy, do I have a treat for you guys, today–an advance review of a book still available for pre-order, here!

So a little while ago, my good buddy, Jacob Devlin, put out a call for ARC (Advance Reader Copy) readers. Basically, a few copies go out before the official launch and we read and review it to boost awareness and drum up some buzz.

So, what are my thoughts? Let me break it down.

CHARACTERS
Karina and Charlie

Karina and Charlie Rosas are the primary main characters, teenagers on a European holid

I really enjoyed Roses in the Dragon's Den, featuring 12-year-old siblings, Karina and Charlie Rosas. The siblings aren't looking forward to vacationing with their Uncle Diego from whom they are estranged. However, when the train they are on flies off the tracks, they find themselves in a strange land. It only gets worse when a dragon snatches their uncle up and the brother and sister have to rescue him. This is not only a page-turning adventure, but it's also a story about the importance of fam ...more

This was a lot of fun. The story was original, and yet included many favorite mythical characters in an unobtrusive way. A great story about values, family, perseverance, and respect for nature, but mostly a fun adventure. The characters are wonderful. I received a free review copy of the audio version of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is a fun middle-grade adventure. Siblings Charlie and Karina have to rescue their uncle Diego from a Dragon when he is flown off after a train accident. Twist and turns, lots of fun and adventure, your middle school readers should really enjoy this one!

Karina and Charlie are 12 year old twins who are on vacation with their Uncle. It’s not something that they’re excited about. I totally enjoyed it. Don’t miss out

The story paints the ideology of kids and the relationship between kids and adults in a very realistic way. The narrator did a good job too. Except for the deep voice, it was easy to imagine I was in the company of 2 young kids

This story instantly grabs me with the opening chapter of a background adventure of two kids with their Uncle "Tio" that ends with him assuring Rina that a what she sees in the background is only a train and not a dragon but he makes a promise if it was to he'd keep them safe then they sneak into the kitchen for midnight snack of oreos and milk. After being away for seven years Uncle Tio is back to make lost time with Rina and Charlie. Little do they know the found memory of that backyard campou ...more
