I have received a free e-copy of the book The Morgans and the Jewel of Bar-Ran by K T Dady for son2 to review. To find out more about the author, you may see her website here.
Here is the book blurb.
Your world isn’t the only one that exists. There is another, a magical place called Bar-Ran, and it’s about to be destroyed unless the Morgan children can find the royal dragon and replace its heart. They are five siblings who are magically transported to a strange land during the night. All they want to do is go home, but a wizard sends them on a journey to rescue the powerful Jewel, and it is a journey that changes their lives forever. This book is suitable for Harry Potter fans and those who enjoy discovering new places like Neverland, Wonderland, and Narnia. This is the first book in the series.
This is what son2 had to say about the book.
I liked this book, it was very interesting, with twist and turns all around and ending on a cliffhanger.
Short and to the point. As I also read the book, I’ll give you a bit more. The five orphaned Morgan children aged 7 to 13 were on holiday visiting their grandmother Nana Hats who lives in a castle, near the town of Peasmore. Unfortunately they can’t live there, as they are in the custody of their horrible mean uncles who make them do all the chores on their pig farm.
But there are some very odd things going on like floating upto the ceiling and glowing red rain. When the children investigate further in the castles’s South Tower in the middle of the night, they end up being transported to the magical land of Bar-Ran in their pyjamas. They want to go home but discover they have first have to complete a mission to save Bar-Ran by recovering the Jewel and returning it to the dragon.
Their mission takes them on journey through many lands, meeting all sorts of magical characters, some good and some bad. We get to see the different personalities of each of the siblings. And son2 is correct about it ending on a cliffhanger, all ready for a new adventure in the second book – The Morgans and the Legend of Blood-Beard.
The Morgans and the Jewel of Bar-Ran is available on Amazon, currently priced at £6.99 in paperback and is also available in kindle format. A great children’s chapter book which son2 really enjoyed. Highly recommended.
