The Dragon's EggThe Dragon’s Egg (Relics of Mysticus- Book Three) by H.B. Bolton

Sure, the glass castle floating over Evan’s head makes him uneasy, but that’s the least of his worries. With each step inside the Dungeon of Dreadful Dreams, he must battle against his worst nightmares. One after the other, wispy smoke-filled bull sharks come at him — he must remember they’re only illusions pulled from his imagination by those dreaded shadowlike hands. If only the vengeful dragon circling above was also an illusion and didn’t have his mind set on destroying the one person who can control him: Emrys. Inside the castle’s glass tower, Emrys sleeps in an eternal slumber, and Evan’s uncertain whether he can save the great wizard. Especially now that Emrys’ former student, the Lady of the Lake, has joined forces with the cunning immortal Alamaz. Together they have already stolen the Dragon’s Egg, but their greed doesn’t end there. The Siren’s Pearl calls to them, and that means only one thing … Atlantis is in trouble. Join Evan, Claire, and Dunkle — along with a few other unlikely heroes — as they travel across the realm of Medieval Legends, float through the Ancient Isle of Avalon, plunge inside the Dungeon of Dreadful Dreams, and be there when Atlantis rises once again.  







   

The Serpents Ring


  The Serpent's Ring (Relics of Mysticus- Book One)


Evan and Claire Jones are typical teenagers, forced to go with their parents to yet another boring museum … that is, until something extraordinary happens to make their day a little more than interesting. After following a strange little creature into a closed exhibit, Evan and his older sister, Claire, discover the Serpent’s Ring, one of the magical relics formed from the shattered Mysticus Orb. Purely by accident, they have awakened its powers and opened a portal to Sagaas, land of ancient gods. Before the siblings can comprehend what has happened, the Serpent’s Ring is wrenched from Evan’s hand by an enormous fish and flown back to Aegir, the Norse god of the sea. Evan and Claire, accompanied by a band of unlikely heroes, must retrieve the Serpent’s Ring before Aegir uses its immense powers to flood all the lands on Earth.

Life has returned to normal for fourteen-year-old Evan and his older sister, Claire. That is until Dunkle, a clever but stinky little imp, pays an unexpected visit to their school. He has come to take the siblings back to Sagaas, the mythical realm of the gods. Once again, a Relic from the ancient Mysticus Orb has fallen into the wrong hands. Only Evan and Claire, with their unique mystical abilities, can help find it. Through the power of the Trickster’s Totem, a coyote trickster has escaped. His laughter echoes throughout the realm, as he spreads mischief and mayhem. He burns an entire crop of popcorn, carves his grinning image into sacred artifacts, and things really get interesting when he shape-shifts into Evan’s friends. Claire and Evan must capture the Trickster, retrieve the Totem, and be careful not to become sidetracked by robotic Steampunk animals, “sweet” pixie-like Pains, and a problematic mermaid … all while dodging Mothman-like aces. Most surprising, Evan discovers the true reason dragons exist in the Native American Spirit World.

Top Ten – Movies I Would Never Watch Again

I love watching movies, and most of them I could watch again; having said that, there are a few I don’t even wish to listen to from another room. I have my reasons, and here they are:

1.      As a young, impressionable child, Jaws II ruined me from going anywhere near my sister’s waterbed. I couldn’t shake the image of pointy teeth punching through.

2.      At 10 years old, I watched Scarface on HBO, and the nights that followed were riddled with bloodshed.

3.      Life Is Beautiful was simply too depressing for me, and I don’t want to subject myself to tears if I can avoid it.

4.      Any movie with Barney the Dinosaur. When my children were young, I tried to shield them from watching the television show, only to have them discover it when they were a little older. And now they enjoy torturing me with Barney’s “entertaining” music and daily shenanigans.

5.      Howard the Duck – the title speaks for itself.

6.      If you didn’t see the movie Kids, I strongly urge you to forget I even mentioned it. This was one of the most disturbing films that I have ever had the unfortunate chance upon seeing.

7.      Clowns didn’t terrify me until I saw Pennywise from Stephen King’s It, and now I won’t go anywhere near them.

8.      Joe Dirt — sorry, David Spade, the movie was just lame.

9.      The Exorcist was far too freaky to ever watch again.

10.  The Harold and Kumar movies, although meant to be stupid, overshot their mark; however, my husband thinks these films are hilarious — must be a guy thing.

  2. Most of these I haven't watched. Though I did see Joe Dirt and also wasn't a fan. I didn't mind the Harold and Kumar movies though it's been so long I barely remember them. Thanks for hosting a tour stop today!
