Fantasy is one of my favorite genre of novels. Ever since I was a little girl I enjoyed the far away places, out of the ordinary creatures and epic plots. It stimulates your imagination and takes you to a places you would’ve never previously imagined. I was so pleased for the opportunity to read Jorie and the Magic Stones by A. H. Richardson. The first in its trilogy, Jorie and the Magic Stones will take your child on a wonderful ride. I received the book in exchange for an honest review.
About jorie and the magic stones
Marjorie, who goes by Jorie, is a nine year old orphan who moves into a grand estate with her strict maiden aunt. After finding a mysterious, old book about dragons under the bed she begins to explore the messages in the pages. This takes her on an adventure to discover that in her aunt’s backyard there is more than meets the eye. The Tarn on her aunt’s property leads her and her neighbor Rufus to the land of Cabrynthius. There she meets a dragon who sends her on a quest to find the magical stones of Maalog.
This story is so fun for adults and children alike. Jorie is spunky and imaginative. She is very bright and works well through the problems she encounters on her journey. Rufus is a great compliment to her as he is brave and adventurous too. The friendship that they build and the loyalty they show is a great example for children.
This story is ideal for readers 8 and up. Middle readers will be able to relate to Jorie and Rufus. Some of the language is uncommon for American readers but it is still a straightforward and easy read. The wonderful lessons of bravery and friendship are what children will be drawn to in this story.
My absolute favorite part is that Jorie and the Magic Stones is part one of a trilogy. I love trilogies. Jorie and the Gold Key is the second installment. It’s already available on Amazon which is great because you’ll definitely want to find out what happens next.Jorie and the Magic Stones is a fantasy story the entire family will love. #kidlit Click To Tweet
