    Excellent Fanatasy book for YA

    Excited to be writing a review of my own book, what else would I give it? I wrote it! A personal story told from my heart, one that touches home. Joshua Creed a young boy who's advanced, adventurous and troubled and travels through a fantastic wild and imaginative journey, a huge undertaking to discover his value. Birthing this hero will have you turning pages, laughing and scratching your head. Strange exciting creatures, amazing new worlds are all wrapped up in this fantasy-filled story of great characters. This is just the first book in the series of The Ancient Sacred Tree Chronicles, another will be coming out next year. Definitely worth reading. This work is from personal encounters with my special needs son and inspired by him. Curious to know the worlds in which he constantly traveled to battle heroes, meet new creatures I imagined this one. Although it took me a bit of time to complete it, I'm encouraged that it may inspire other kids like mine to become all they can, despite their struggles.

    Literary Titan

    The Ancient Sacred Tree: Birth of a Hero by author Dawnette N. Brenner is about a 12-year-old boy named Joshua who finds himself thrust into a magical land full of danger. This book made me really emotional. Not only does the book cover a tough but important topic, how kids deal with divorce, but the quotes from anonymous children talking about divorce were heartbreaking. It really is important to remember that kids can be affected in different ways and often see more than people think, and like Joshua, often feel guilt. And on top of that, the book is also dealing with mental illness as Joshua is a pre-teen dealing with bipolar disorder. Having a book that deals with subjects like this is very important, and I feel that Brenner handled the subjects really well. This is the kind of book that readers can definitely connect to, both in how you deal with struggles and watching the struggles of others. Brenner has done a fantastic job of entering into the mind of a child. The imaginative world that Joshua finds himself in is a great representation of the kind of imaginary places children make up to escape to. I loved how the land of Ice Plants and Norkels has not just a dreamlike quality but really captures how imaginary worlds are distorted versions of what we see and know. Things like Thragons that seem close to familiar but are a magic of their own. The imagery she uses really brings the fantastical world to life. The back and forth switch from the magical realm to the real world is disorienting, but it is clear that this was intentional as we watch Joshua dealing with the world around him. Joshua is an incredible character who is dealing with a great deal both internally and externally. This book is a magical way of showing and handling tough subjects for your adult readers. I found this book to be enchanting to read, even when it made me want to cry, and I would highly recommend it. I would definitely give this book 5 stars for its unique creativity, and the extraordinary way it deals with its subject matter. I look forward to reading book two!
