Julia Suzuki's Award Winning 'Land of Dragor' series will entrance readers of any age. The Gift of Charms, the first volume of Julia Suzuki's series is an epic fantasy story set to enchant and entertain...

In a secret land, far away from the habitation of man, dwell the world's remaining dragons -- hoping the dragsaur beasts have vanished forever. Here they try to live their daily lives, but all is not well and their talents are fading. 

Things change, however, when, from a strange egg, Yoshiko is born - a dragon with a unique destiny. 

Great adventure lies ahead as many challenges must be overcome, leading to a dangerous mission to the human world in attempt to return to the clans their missing magic!

Can Yoshiko make it in time?


In this novel by Julia Suzuki, we are transported to the magical world of Dragor where seven different clans of Dragons live hidden from the humans that use to enslave them. This novel is centered around a young dragon named Yoshiko, who is just starting school and gets bullied for being different by another young dragon Igorr, whose clan thinks it's superior to Yoshiko's.

At the beginning Yoshiko lets the bully get to him, but when he has finally had enough and takes off to get away from everything. He unconsciously ends up in the forbidden mountain where he meets Guya and elder dragon everything changes from that point. He no longer lets Igorr's taunts get to him instead Yoshika starts training with one of the best Dragon Guard for a great adventure that he has no idea lays ahead of him.

I really enjoyed this novel. It's beautifully written, Julia she describes the world so perfectly and vividly, and the dragons I couldn't get enough of them I loved how all seven clans had their own backstory, color, and they were just perfect. This book also sends a strong wonderful message to children about bullying and that being different is not a bad thing and that you don't always have to follow the crowd. This book is definitely a must read for all ages. I can't wait for the next book, Julia left me wanting more of this beautiful magical world full of amazing dragons.
