The Road to Dendura by C.L. Lewis

Genre:  Fantasy

# of Pages:  261

RAC Book:  Yes

Creed Griffon goes to a private school where students occasionally go missing.  After  a girl who tends to bully Creed she goes missing, he is immediately a suspect due to the altercation they were overheard having prior to her disappearance.  Meanwhile, Creed keeps having disturbing dreams that slowly start bleeding into his real life.  He comes to find out he is much more involved with the paranormal activities at his school than he could have ever realized and it might be up to him to save the missing students.  The more he learns, however, the more danger he finds himself in.  Can he find out what he needs to in order to survive?  Can he clear his name even as evidence mounts against him in the disappearance of the girl at school?

Fantasy fans will love this book, especially ones who like Harry Potter or Percy Jackson.  The story moves quickly and engages young readers from the beginning.  A few of the plot details seem a bit murky at first, but clarify as Creed begins to learn more about his school and his personal situation.  The characterizations develop as the story goes on and readers begin to care what happens to them.  All in all, a nice fantasy read that should have no problem finding an audience.

    I actually found this book through the recommendation of a Barnes and Noble employee. If you are looking for an awesome author, C. L. Lewis is the one. Rather than spoil the plot, you can go to the Creed Grifon website, (main character) and do a little excerpt reading for yourself. Book two is supposed to be out shortly.I know it’s also available in e-reader formats. I just purchased a Nook and so I’m hoping that book two will be available via this method too.

    I completely agree with Brenda: C.L. Lewis is great! I’m thinking of adding C.L. to this list of the best young adult authors (it’s pretty solid, LOTS of “classics” too), I liked Road to Dendura so much!!

    If I do y’all come vote, LOL. Thank you for the great blog, I find so many excellent reads via your posts!!

    Thank you to whoever discovered this book series! Otherwise, I’m not sure I would’ve known about it. My son, age 14 is an avid reader. He’s read every Sci Fi Fantasy book there is. I surprised him with The Road to Dendura the other day. I was able to find it and Barnes and Noble as suggested. Anyway, he hasn’t been able to put it down. Good books are very hard to find these days. It’s nice to learn about such things from a resource I trust and respect. Thank you, Evan

    This is a great read! I always use this site to look for new books, but this is the first time I’ve left a review. Whoever reviewed this book was right. After a while you really do begin to care about the characters. While you’re reading it, they sort of become like real people. Does anyone know when book two is coming out?
