Marni (wonderwmn999) | 3578 comments The group would like to welcome author Samuel Tucker Young for a Read 4 Review of his book Derek Agons Slays A Dragon, a YA SciFi adventure.

Derek Agons just found out that the natural disasters he's seen tearing up the world are not just random earthquakes and monsoons. They are the result of a dragon, hellbent on destroying the world as it lusts for the one thing it wants the most; the illuminating book that Derek just picked up in a parking lot off of a talking cat. Failing high school is the least of Derek's problems now, for the book has chosen him as its champion, destined to face the bloodthirsty dragon in a duel for the fate of the world.

Now the high school junior must traverse modern day America as he gets crossed and double crossed in search of the beast. Accompanied by a furiously curious talking cat, Derek soon uncovers a hidden world deep within his own that is filled with books that glow with desire, an ancient order of talking animals clinging desperately to the past, and a mysterious girl who keeps the world turning.

All of that, of course, plus the evil dragon he must slay to keep the world from ending.

Once you are finished with your review and have posted it on Goodreads, you are REQUIRED to post your Goodreads link to it on this thread.

Even though this book is being gifted to you please do not share it with anyone. It is unethical, disrespectful and illegal to share books provided to you for reviews.

Further Info from the group, not the author: If you do not complete the e-book within the time given, and you do not post your link on this thread or I do not hear from you stating that you intend to finish and review the book, you will not be allowed to participate in future Read 4 Review events. This is to prevent people from getting complimentary books over and over without fulfilling their obligation.

Do not message me nor the author requesting the book. All info is to be posted here. This is for the ease of the author and the mods and fairness to all. If you do not wish to share your email publicly, please do not request.

If there are any other authors looking to do this with our group, please message me. You MUST be willing to provide copies, free of charge, to the reviewers. Here’s the post on what is needed when requesting: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

Katharina Gerlach | 88 comments Sorry, Marni. I'm currently reading but my adopted father died and that threw me out of the book for a while. I'm really sorry but this is the first time I've ever asked to extend the deadline.

https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...

I'll put it up on amazon some time soon and will give it a 4 star rating there with the headline pointing out that title and cover target the wrong reading audience. I deducted a star for that on this site.
