In Gularian Islands by Tracey C. Ayres, a teenager named Ben and his best mate, Gary, go on a plane trip back home to Australia from America. As the plane is flying over the Atlantic Ocean, it suddenly begins to lose altitude, forcing everyone to abort the vessel.
Luckily, there’s an island nearby, and everyone is able to get to it with only scrapes and bruises. Once everyone is safe, Ben notices two men with them he didn’t remember seeing on the plane. They look as if they’re both in the army; they swim well, one has a knife that wouldn’t have been allowed on the plane, and they both have an aura of leadership surrounding them, but can they be trusted?
One day, Ben and Gary are out looking for food when they see a dragon-shaped silhouette over the ocean. Then they find a cave with a nest of eggs twice the size of an ostrich’s. At this, they realize the dragon isn’t fake or a vision their minds created. It’s flesh and blood. Read Gularian Islands to find out if Ben, Gary, and the entire host of passengers survive these islands of dragons.
Gularian Islands by Tracey C. Ayres is a great book, and I hope to be able to read the second book as soon as it comes out. The book itself is a quick read, but the content and quality of the book far exceeded what was expected. In the book, the characters are expressed in great detail, further adding to the quality of the book. The plot was amazing; there were two sudden twists I wasn’t expecting, but they fit right into the storyline. This is a wonderful book to read, and I would recommend it to any readers ages ten through twelve.
