Title: Beast Quest, Ferno the Fire Dragon
Author: Adam Blade
The story is about a boy named Tom who goes on a really exciting adventure with his pet horse Storm and meets this girl named Elena – who Tom agrees to take her with him on his adventure. He gets a special map given to him by a wizard called Aduro to help Tom stop the creator of the Beasts called Malvel. His first mission, is to hunt down a creature called Ferno who protected Avantia (the fantasy world) from harm, but Malvel poisoned Ferno into thinking he was a monster and was to destroy all Avantia.
There are over 50 Beast Quest books in the series, all around a 100 pages long. I love this book because I really like how it grabs the reader’s attention from the very beginning. If you read a lot, you could finish this book in a day and move onto the second book in the series: Beast Quest: Sepron the Sea Monster. Beast Quests are really good books especially if you find reading a struggle and it gives you a lot of ideas and imaginary pictures of beasts. I would very highly recommend this book to the whole of Prep School. This exhilarating book series is highly appreciated by many authors such as J.K. Rowling and Stephen King. If you are interested in Beast Quest have a look in the library and you’re sure to find a Beast Quest book. Adam Blade has written another series like Beast Quest, it is called Sea Quest.
My favourite character is Aduro because he is so wise and trustworthy and whatever he does he always manages to achieve it. Aduro faced Malvel long ago but didn’t manage to defeat him, now Aduro is too old to fight him again and trusts Tom with the job.
My favourite part of the book is when Tom climbs the mountain and is exhausted and doesn’t have the will to fight, then he looks over an overhang only to see Ferno’s giant face staring right at him. He then drops down onto a nearby ledge and hides away from the dragon for a night and returns to fight him in the morning.
If I was to rate this book I would rate it a 5 star because it is not to long and an exciting read for the Prep School. Not many books reach my 5 star list but this one is probably my most favourite book I’ve ever read!
An evil wizard has enchanted the magical beasts of Avantia – only a true hero can free the beasts and stop them from destroying the land. Is Tom the hero Avantia has been waiting for? Join Tom, as he braves Ferno the Fire Dragon…
Can you survive the Beast Quest?
