And now the reviews are rolling in:

“…This full grown adult certainly enjoyed travelling through ‘world gates’ and meeting the varied people and dragons on the other side. I liked that the book also had a strong anti bullying theme, with bullies being “turned” into friends by a variety of different ploys.”

“Good times. I read this to my 7 year old son tonight and he loved it. He was jumping around the room in excitement and took all the choices very seriously indeed…”

“My choices had me stepping through a shimmering world-gate to an adventure involving flying pigs, a work-out under a strongwood tree, and a hair-raising topple from a dragon’s back, but your story could be completely different…”

“Whatever path through Dragons Realm you choose, you’re in for a rollicking fun-filled adventure. With dragons”

You can purchase Dragons Realm on Amazon, but be quick, the price won’t stay this low for long.
