it was amazing

I love children's novels with strong child or teen protagonists who solve their own problems or issues without much, or any, intervention by adults. David and the Heart of Aurasius is one such book.

David is the quintessential 'quiet achiever' who doubts his own abilities at times but through the encounters he faces in the parallel world in this book, manages to come into his own as 'the boy who could'.

As I read this book, I couldn't help but draw comparisons with the 'David vs Goliath' biblical tale. David, a small boy, takes on a bigger, seemingly stronger opponent in the mythical Aurasius.

I read the Kindle version of this story and it is well written, engaging and entertaining. The characters are diverse, quirky and interesting. I look forward to reading the sequel in the near future.
