    A spectacular, inclusive waterworld.

    At first you would wonder how octopus and a dragon could be brought together. Jenny Burke not only does this but also other species who by seeing past their differences and finding common ground and respect find strength and friendship. With the open mindedness of just one can cause in this case waves that ripple throughout an ocean. The vibrant sometimes dangerous world brings forth the need to mesh each other’s abilities together for the betterment of all. Look forward to re entering this world again.

    A Beautiful, Imaginative Story For All Ages

    Arak is a dragon, but he's not like the other dragons. He has a gift that makes him different, and being different is never easy. Wanting to gain acceptance among the other dragons, he sets off on his own to try to help his people and ends up in trouble. Which is when he meets Scree and a beautiful friendship is born. Will these two exceptional individuals overcome all the challenges ahead and succeed in helping their people? You'll have to read to find out! I loved, loved, loved this story. I literally couldn't put it down and ended up reading through the night. It's not a terribly long book, but it's chocked full of important themes and thoughtful interactions between the characters. Virtues like tolerance, patience, cooperation, empathy, kindness, and open-mindedness are emphasized and celebrated. The characters solve problems by working together and using their differences to complement each other. And, as someone who revels in "exploring" new worlds, the world-building in this book is outstanding. The imagery used to paint a picture of two different worlds, one above the water and the other underneath, is breathtaking. I think this book is perfect for anyone from age 8 to 108 and I can't recommend it enough.

    Dragons and Octopuses!

    I enjoy reading authors from Georgia and added The Dragon Dreamer by J S Burke to my TBR not long ago. Read on to discover my thoughts! Synopsis (from the author): The Dragon Dreamer is a fast-paced adventure with flying dragons, an undersea world, and an unlikely friendship. It's a science fantasy layered for readers age 9 to 99. Arak is a misfit dragon called "Dreamer". Determined to prove himself he leaves on a dangerous quest, is caught in a fierce sea-storm, and crashes on ice. Wounded and alone he faces death. Then a fearless undersea shape-shifter named Scree heals him and an unlikely friendship begins. When an undersea volcano erupts it triggers a towering tsunami and a deadly chain of events. Can Arak use his unique talents to save the dragons? What I liked: The Dragon Dreamer was a fun read, and I learned quite a bit about octopuses, squids, and, of course, dragons. I enjoyed the way J S Burke mingled fantasy, science, and science fiction into the story. Arak, our dragon hero, persevered through bullying and teasing. Scree, the octopus, was a bold adventurer, and together they bring their respective cultures together to help one another and improve life for both. Lots to learn here! What I didn’t like: To be honest, I really didn’t find anything to dislike in this book. Overall impression: The Dragon Dreamer by J S Burke was a good read. Written for ages 9-99, the story is easy to follow, deals with issues many young people encounter, and showed that a positive attitude can go a long way to making life better. Well done J S Burke! My rating: 5 Stars
