BOOK REVIEW: Traegonia by K.S. Krueger

Traegoina:  The Sunbow Prophecy is a Young Reader Fantasy Adventure Fiction.

Traegonia is a world within a world, where elves, fairies and gnomes exist, you will not find it on any map, but it does exist.  They are the protectors and keepers of the Earth and they have done their job well until lately when havoc and chaos appears to be on the uprise.  A developer is looking to tear up the land and the Traegon's will be displaced and a great rift will form in Nature.

The day that Dino's mother shares the secrets of the forests, Dino becomes captivated with finding the Traegons and befriending them.  Dino is not frightened by their appearance and soon becomes friends with Karia and Juna, the three find themselves in the midst of a prophecy.

The three work together to stop the developers and to bring the prophecy to fullfilment, time is running out and so are their options.

This was a fantastic read and the journey you are imagined upon is worth the ride.  The world of Traegonia is great and world-building is not an easy task for a writer to accomplish and the world in which this book mainly resides in is wonderfully depicted and described.

I couldn't help but feel like the Traegon's looked like some of the Muppet characters found in "The Dark Crystal", and often found myself picturing them as such.  They are a great race of people to read about and many lessons can be learned from within these pages.

This would make an EXCELLENT series to read to your youngsters.  There are many moral and engaging lessons to be gleaned from the pages.  Beliefs in yourself and your dreams/passions is shared throughout many of the pages and you cannot help but want to spread them to other minds to interpret.

I thought all the characters played well together and the story they shared was superbly expressed and left the reader as if watching the whole book displayed as a movie, which I would love to see Traegonia made into, it would make excellent eye candy.

I would give Traegonia:  The Sunbow Prophecy a five out of five stars.  I can only praise this series and believe it would make an wonderful addition to anyone's library.  I cannot wait to read the next book, "Traegonia:  The Ember Rune".

Thanks for the opportunity to be reviewed on your blog. I appreciate your kind words and you are not the first to wish to see Traegons on the big screen. Also Dino takes their reminding people of "Dark Crystal" as a great compliment. Thanks again and Happy Holidays to you and all of your readers:)
