RUBYAR ON THE MOUNTAIN by Debra K. Dunlap gets LADYBUGGED
****Debra K. Dunlap****a conjurer of resoundingly rich fantasy and well worth the read.
(((((MASSACRE))))- the book opens on a bloody massacre in progress and highlights a dark haired man you're not sure is the enemy or someone plotting to destroy the enemy.
An entire village reduced to broken bodies, smoldering homes...everything gone, except for the children long trained to hide...and at all costs remain quiet and survive.
She's only fifteen, the eldest of the surviving children. She has no choice but to put aside her staggering grief and and along with her younger brother, lead them all to safety and a new home somewhere out there.
RUBYAR ON THE MOUNTAIN is a heart wrenching journey filled with unexpected magic..complete with castles, wizards, villains, and a resilience you will love.
FIVE STARS for this sweeping book for our young and young at heart. And to Ms. Dunlap, this may have been my first time journeying into your realm, but won't be my last.
FANTASTIC STORY, LADY DEBRA.
