AFM Summer Reading List

You know there are some books that as you reading you become immersed in the story that you feel like you are one of the characters. That is how I felt when I was reading Adela Arthur and The Creator’s Clock. Here is a brief letter written by Adela to future readers of her story.

To Who Ever This May Concern;

I wish I could tell you the contents of this book were purely fictional. That I, Adela Arthur, was just a normal sixteen year old from Portland and that dragons, giants, elves and mermaids were just myths. I wish these were legends shared from crazy old grandparents to crazy old grandparents around campfires. After all, that is what I used to believe. I never would have thought they lived on the other side of our mirrors in a world called Cielieu. But they do…I never would have thought there were humans, better known as Volsin that lived among them with the ability to create light from a single thought. But there are…I never would have thought I was one of them… But I am… I am the last Arthur and I was brought to the human world after a Volsin, filled with greed, began to strip the light from our kind. The human world was supposed to be a safe haven… but he’s found us and the only way to stop him is to go back to Cielieu and begin training as a student in the Elpida Castle of Light. Like I said I wish the contents of this book were purely fictional and not my life…

Sounds awesome right well folks let me tell you this book was awesome and I am so excited that it is a part of a series of books.  I think books that part of a series are my favorites because I can get invested into a character. This book had such cool characters mixed in the modern everyday human world and then the other realm. My favorite quote from the book was when on of the characters was asking Hector and Adela (who grew up in the human realm ) did they have scary things there. And Hector referred to  Justin Beiber and his fans and then the question asked “What’s a Beiber?” I shared that little gem with my daughters on the way back from the beach the other day and they got a good laugh out of it.

I also love the fact that one of the characters, Adela’s Grandpa is portrayed as a blind man. I love seeing strong characters who not always perfect. Having experience with having a legally blind grandmother I applaud Judy Ann McCole for using a character with a disability. I also loved how the grandfather is actually a dragon and not just any dragon a very unique one.
