Book Review: The Land of the Beasts by S.F. Claymore

“Psykoria is on the brink of civil war. King Breetor knows he must do something to appease the unrest. He decides that the only way he can win peace is by impressing the other lords with a feat so grand it will win their undying respect.

There is a legend of a land where the greatest beasts in the continent reside. In a war past, men bore witness as dragons appeared in their realm to help end the conflicts. Breetor has decided to follow their trail and find this land. If he can bring back proof of its existence, perhaps he can end the unrest in his realm once and for all…”

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

King Breetor decides that he is going to go to a faraway land to defeat a dragon and bring proof back to his people. There is growing unrest and he thinks that they will respect him if he shows them how brave he is.

What an adventure! Breetor and his men battle the sea and actually find the Land of the Beasts. Not only are there dragons but there are many dangerous beasts. The people who live in this land are welcoming, but when they find out that Breetor wants to kill a dragon, they’re not happy because they believe it will cause a war with the dragons.

Breetor’s adventure turns out to be very different from what he’d envisioned. He learns a lot about dragons as well as the Land of the Beasts. Will he be able to accomplish his goal of proving his bravery?

The Land of the Beasts is a fun adventure for readers around middle school age. For me it was a quick read that was good but it would have been better if I could have connected with the character.

About the Author

Born and raised in the UK, I have a technology-based education, but my passion has always been in creating stories, worlds, characters, and doing anything that allows me to use my imagination.

I’ve had the privilege of being able to travel many parts of the world in such a small number of years, learning of different cultures and histories. Everywhere I go, I’m always absorbing new knowledge, and when one has so many ideas bursting in their mind, there is no greater joy than allowing them to materialise.
