LovalLit book preview: ‘The Daraga’s Youngsters’ by Colleen H. Robbins of Joliet
Next week I’ll be checking out the sequel “The Daraga’s Children” in the LocalLit newsletter.
Although the book is fantasy and not always a genre I read, Robbins has added an element to her books that fascinates me.
The characters in their “Daraga” series experience the challenges young adults can face in their own lives. Reading how the characters approach them can inspire teens (and adults) to make good decisions on their own.
Here is the abbreviated Amazon Book Description: “Family is everything, right? Then why do they have so many secrets? When sixteen-year-old Nicholas Nayevson discovers he can transform into a dragon, he can’t wait to show his wizard father.
“Traveling as a dragon is difficult, but traveling as a human has its own challenges. Worse, Nicholas has no idea where his father’s mysterious Daraga people live. But what can Nicholas do when he discovers the young man on the other end of him is sword is his almost identical brother – from his father’s other family? “
