Mudd lives in a quiet little town and works at a mill. He
lives with the town's blind prophesier, Shemnara, and his
dad and sister. Mudd is fixing one of the gears in the mill
when it catches on fire. A red dragon came out, swooping in
the sky, lighting everything ablaze. Mudd, his dad and
sister are in the process of driving the dragon away when
the dragon turns and flies away of her own free will. Mudd
gets a bad feeling, and runs back to his house and finds
Shemnara is gone and the house is a mess; things are broken
and scattered across the floor. There is a tiny note left
for Mudd from Shemnara telling him to find a mystical
pendant; it is the only way he can get her back.
enjoy this book as much as I thought I would. The conflicts
were few and shallow; they didn'yave much to do with the
story. However, this would be a good book for new readers.
The language isn't very difficult, and the plot is easy to
follow. Most of the characters seemed to be shifting and
occasionally, they would do something unnatural for their
character. I would recommend this book to a lower age and a
lower reading level.
