Henry and Ruther tend to get into a lot of trouble.

They like chasing after the dream...

more money, more admiration, more adventure.

So when they hear that there is a dragonox in the farmer's field they MUST go see.

Of course they take all of their friends including Isabelle.

Ruther encourages Henry to go ride the dangerous dragonox saying that Isabelle will be so impressed.

Can he?
Should he?
Does he?

Read to see what happens.

An AWESOME stand alone book.

In The Fool and The Dragonox, by Jacob Gowans, we get to meet the protagonists of his new series, A Tale of Light and Shadow. This is a short YA novella that features them in a quick adventure together.

Henry and Ruther, two good friends who wreak havoc together, learn about a dragonox in a nearby farm. They invite two girls to see the creature. Of course, the story would not have been fun if they had only looked at the creature, so you can imagine that this story will include some fire breathing and some running.

The Fool and the Dragonox shows us the world for an upcoming YA fantasy series, and that is the best part of the story. The world is believable, the main characters are complex and humanlike, and the writing is entertaining.The ending was the only part that disappointed me, but I hope that Gowan’s full novels will not have that flaw.

I review advance reader copies of books to find new voices to read. There are many authors in the field of fantasy, and I had found myself reading the same authors most of the time. When I started reading The Fool and the Dragonox, I knew I was in safe hands: Gowans’ narrative style shows experience and talent, and I found myself reading on and wanting to learn more about the characters. Gowans is one of those good authors I had not learned about that make the task of reviewing books worthwhile. ( )
