“I recommend this book to avid readers who enjoy losing themselves in a different world, who enjoy learning about history, but who also like to see characters come alive – enough to root for them!” -E. Fiorelli

Alone in the bamboo forest, seven-year-old Little Jade, still dressed in red silk after her father’s recent wedding, wonders whether she will ever meet her real mother. DAUGHTER OF THE BAMBOO FOREST is a story set in war-torn, post-revolutionary China during the 1940s. From age seven to twelve, Little Jade longs for the attention of an opium-addicted father and clashes with a desperate, resentful stepmother. The young girl is inadvertently swept by the tides of history, encountering a plague that decimated a village, Catholic nuns in a convent school, and the fabled dragon king along the way.

Big Dragons Don’t Cry
by C.M. Barrett
Rating: 4.8 Stars
Genre: Fantasy
Price: $0.99

 

“The author succeeds in interweaving several threads of plot; her deft handling of these different plots allows the story to conclude with a terrific climax.” -Mr. Aman A.

Morale in the country of Oasis has never been worse. The Earthers, a tree-hugging sect, beg forgiveness for their crimes against twigs and weeds. The Godlies preach penitence and suffering and inspire their followers into submission by threatening them with an afterlife spent being chased by a fire-breathing dragon. All Oasans fear the dragon in the swamp at the country’s edge, and they don’t know that he fears them. Druid, a water dragon who puts out fires, steams up when he learns that a cunning opportunist intends to exploit dragonphobia and have the dragon killed so that he can level the swamp for suburban housing.

Tara, a kitten with charisma, is trying to bring humans back into balance. She needs to enlist Serazina, a young human woman who hides her ability to read emotions in order to avoid imprisonment in the Ward for the Chronically Crazy. Serazina’s troubles grow when Phileas, Guardian of Oasis, chooses her to be the mother of the heir he so badly needs. Before he can consider fatherhood, he needs to stem the mysterious rumors that he’s soft on dragons. Somehow these four must overcome communication difficulties, mutual mistrust, and delusions of human superiority to save the country. Otherwise, even though Druid doesn’t breathe fire, Oasis will be toast.
