Iris and the Dragonflies Book Review & Giveaway

I am pleased to be one of the sponsoring bloggers for this giveaway. This review and posting was written by Erika at Living Frugal with Erika.


*Giveaway will go LIVE from March 20th - March 27th*

Recently I was asked to do a book review on a middle schooled aged Fantasy Book. Since I am quite a few years out of high school, I decided I would download it on the Kindle and read it to the kids. The oldest wanted to read it on her own and that was fine too! 

The day that I was contacted by the author Rosemary Danielis, I downloaded the book for the kids to read when they got home from school. I decided I would flip through the book a little and see what they would be reading. Before I knew it, I was on Chapter 8. This book had kept ME on the edge of my seat! I was amazed! 

This book teaches beautiful lessons on history, friendship, and family. It also gives a wonderful insight to another time and another place. 

Now I must say that as a high school student I was into other mystery books that came out. After reading the first eight chapters, I emailed the author and gave her my feedback and idea for a giveaway! She was thrilled that I had came up with the idea to get this book out to more readers. I would highly recommend it to anyone that is young, old, school aged, or even a great book to read to the younger kids at night before bed. 

The book tells the wonderful story of Iris and her Dragonfly friends. She has an interesting connection to them and always has. I don't want to give away too much of the book, but Iris travels with her family to Ireland during a month vacation. While she is in Ireland she hears the fabulous stories about Dragons and old tales in Ireland. She learns more about her family history and even a lot about her self. After her vacation she returns home to her friends. They all begin talking about their vacations and where they came from. All of the children begin to learn that there is something unique about their group. 

The author has such a creative mind and uses the greatest choice of words to get her point across. Her word choices allow you to go into the book and feel what is going on. As I was reading the book, I could vividly imagine all of the parts of the book. There is also a wonderful usage of the different dialects from all of the different characters! It truly is a wonderful read! 

After speaking with the Author, she has confirmed there is a second book in the writing! I can only hope that our blog will get to review the second book. The first book still has me hanging onto the edge waiting for the next! 

Our 12 year old reader in the family says, " It's the best book I've read in so many years. I love to read so much and this book is amazing. I can't wait for the next!" 

I was so touched when I received an autographed copy of the book and bookmark from the author herself! It will truly be treasured in our home as well are all readers!
