Product description

About the Author

Drae overcame reading, writing and speech difficulties by reading every night to her twin sister whilst in lower school. It was because of this that Drae discovered her love for stories, going on to read such books as The Animorphs Series, Shade’s Children, Sabriel, The Lord of the Rings, Jungle Book, the Dirk Pitt Series and many others. At the age of fourteen, she completed her first book (The Royal Gift) and kept writing. She currently lives in the UK, and loves finding cafes to drink mochas and meet new people.

The land of Gifted and the premises of magical gifts and objects with people transforming into mythical creatures have the potential to deliver a great imaginary world. However quality of writing let's this story down. I have 2 particular bugbears. 1. When using direct speech the author almost always follows it with another character's reaction, without clarifying who was speaking. This regularly confused me. 2. Fight scenes were confusing. I could never work out why the dragon fell into the river during that fight scene, or how Thane somehow was on the roof dropping/ nor dropping Raneth off it when Raneth was the first to climb! Other plot failings include the apparent lack of support from the Royal Army even though the village is 10 mins from the palace! - Not to mention the 3 main characters 'rescuing' the villagers from their safe hiding place before securing the village, or why certain Gifts appeared once but never again - why give Aldora the ability to deafen people, shown once but never to be used again? Raneth's Ice gift was similarly used. At least we saw his Griffin self twice!

All in all, the plot needs work, scenes are confusing and everything is a little too convenient. That said, I child I teach loves this book, especially the magical characters, and I appreciate the humour of Prince Pedibastet, even if he is rarely of any real use!

For someone who was young at the time to write this shows an incredible imagination. There is a definite writing style and you can almost feel the authors passion about this book jump out of the page. The main characters are well crafted (although the budding romance is a little forced at times), and I do want to know more about them. And I absolutely love Pedibastet, his character is the most clear and cleverly executed out of them all. I wonder if the book (or series as the author plans) could be helped by almost an introduction to the world - eg electricity in mud huts? What is the clothing like? How many continents are in this world? Is it an alternative Earth? Perhaps this was me reading as an adult, but some of the lines blurred enough to make this confusing. Overall though, I think this is a very solid piece of writing, and the author should be proud.
