Sometimes, Something Special Comes Along.

Something Like 'HOME' From A Master Storyteller

& A Book You Won't Forget!


When young Alador has mystical powers placed upon him, he sets off on an extraordinary quest to become a true pseudo-dragon, facing unspeakable danger from an ancient beast lurking in the shadows.


As part of his journey, Alador secretly helps the Daezun people without their knowledge and comes to rely on assistance from Rena, a young blue female dragon who is falling in love with him against her father’s wishes. But when Alador travels to the city of Silverport to take his tier test and prove his abilities, he discovers that many council members are scheming against him in a struggle to maintain control over their land. Can he successfully navigate the delicate balance of politics and the machinations of his wicked uncle without setting off any unintended consequences?


Fortunately, Alador has several contacts operating under cloak and dagger, including Nemara, who is working secretly with Jon, the death mage, to help Alador rescue all the dragons held prisoner by the evil mages of Lerdenia. In Alador’s quest to end this senseless blood loss and claim his destiny, failure is not an option.


Our review......

A rich fantasy that brings the primal thrill of the genre to life, Pseudo Dragon is book 4 in the The Blue Dragon's Geas series from Cheryl Matthynssens  and it illustrates how an author can take popular fiction and keep it original. With a wonderfully engaging narrative maze and multiple story lines that branch and flow, Matthynssens takes us on another spellbinding journey that enthralls the imagination. She has the courage to be different and unlike many authors who depend on the tropes of a genre for impact and intensity her prose are visually inventive whilst a strong plot refreshingly avoids easy moral simplifications. Fantasy often runs the danger of becoming a mind numbing series of events with insipid world building but Matthynssens is amongst the most visually inventive you will ever read. As with her previous novels in the series, Psuedo Dragon is underpinned by an explosive plot line, but more importantly it goes beyond a simplistic tale of good versus evil which is essential in an ever evolving saga.


Another fine release in the The Blue Dragon's Geas series, Matthynssens certainly won’t disappoint her many fans. A genuine page-turner, it is recommended without reservation.
