Wizards, fairies, spirits from long ago, time travel, mental telepathy and a Spirit attendee are just part of the adventure you’ll find in The Wizard of Dreams. From the first paragraph, we know that Gordon, who is just moving out of his toddler years and ready to begin school, is an extraordinary boy.. He has what his mum refers to as a “imaginary friend,” but whom we find as we read on is either a guardian angel, spirit guide, or an alter-ego of this extremely gifted child. Gordon possesses uncanny intelligence and knowledge that exceeds his age. He stands up to bullies much older and larger than himself and I won’t tell you how that turns out. You’ll need to read the story to see.
Zack, Gordon’s attendee, is as much a part of the story plot as Gordon himself is. Together, they go on adventures in dreams where they save fairies from fire-breathing dragons, travel backward in time to meet Gordon’s sixteen generations back great grandmother who gives him a gift and reveals shocking information that will serve Gordon and the planet earth well.
I don’t want to tell too much and spoil the story. I will say this is a delightful read for any young adult or young-at-heart adult. If you like Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter, you’ll love this book about Gordon and Zack and their many adventures. Robin Chambers did a fantastic job of crafting this story. The writing flows and in that flow, carries you right along with it. With vivid descriptions, you can see what Gordon and Zack are seeing. You are flying on broomsticks with them or kneeling before kings. This is the first book in this series and I look forward to book 2!
I enjoyed reading and reviewing this book. I gave it 5 stars.
