The New Land Book Review

The New Land is a magical tale readers will love. Bourne describes the fictional land so vividly, readers will think the setting is real. The descriptions of the lush greenery and mountains are expertly paired with a map of Avalon at the beginning of the novel.

The New Land would be best for fans of fantasy novels like Harry Potter and other novels about magical powers. The Merlin and King Arthur references in the novel would also appeal to fans of medieval fantasy. The book would also be great for readers of The Lord of the Rings trilogy or other Tolkien-esque novels about journeys. Though the novel may appeal most to young adult readers, The New Land can appeal to readers of all ages. Daisy Bourne has written a book that will have readers clamoring for more. The New Land will have readers eager to return to Avalon.

The Land of Twydell and the Dragon Egg Book Review

Daisy Bourne’s exciting Tales of Avalon Series continues with The Land of Twydell and the Dragon Egg. This sequel continues the saga of Merlin and King Arthur.

The Land of Twydell is an engaging story that readers will enjoy whether they are followers of the series or first-time readers. Bourne’s writing packs a lot of action in such a short novel. The Land of Twydell is fast- paced and the dialogue is compelling throughout the novel.

The Land of Twydell would be perfect for readers who are fans of Lord of the Rings or other fantasy novels about odysseys and journeys. Young adult readers may be the target audience, but readers of all ages will love this novel.

Pacific Book Reviews

The story is filled with magic and adventure. The concepts are simple enough for a young child to understand, yet complex enough to keep minds working on linking all the pieces together. Language used is also accessible to younger readers without necessarily “talking down” to them. Even in the world of magic and mystery, manners and respect turn out to be the greater forces at work, providing children with important life lessons without being preachy or lecturing.
