~ Book Review
by Laura Lond
My Sparkling Misfortune is the story of a villain who is an unwilling hero. Lord Arkus is a villain who is feared by all, disliked and hated by those who know him. In a strange twist of fate while planning his 'come back', he captures what he thinks is an "evil gormack" only to find he caught a "sparkling", to help him exact revenge on Prince Kellemar.
The sparkling is able to help Lord Arkus through a series of 'miracles' (or spells) but refuses to help him with anything that will harm others or do anything that is evil. In return Lord Arkus finds ways that he thinks will trick the sparkling into doing what he wants. And as we all know, "those who do wrong, always have to answer for it".
Written in first person by the main character Lord Arkus, this book is fast paced and full of adventure. There are sword fights, kingdoms, knights and attempted kidnappings. It's perfect for kids who love to read and moves fast enough and is easy enough to read for reluctant readers. There is enough humor and action that your kid won't want to put it down.
You can purchase My Sparkling Misfortune as a paperback for $9.99 or in electronic form for your kindle for $4.95 on Amazon. This would make a great Christmas or birthday gift for your readers.
