Clifton Chase and the Arrow of Light is wonderful mix of fantasy and history. It's meant for children (boys and girls alike) ages 8-12 years old that are ready to read a good adventure. My Little Son fits right into that category. He's an avid reader, but he's way past Magic Treehouse. I'm always trying to find an adventurous story without diving too early into teen books. I think this book will be just right.
The main character, Clifton, finds a magic arrow that transports him to a different time and place. He has to evade the King's army, rescue 2 small princes, escape a dragon, and protect the Arrow of Light. In the author's own words, "CLIFTON CHASE AND THE ARROW OF LIGHT was inspired by real life events and a painting depicting the Battle of Bosworth Field. Fantasy elements, magic, dragons, and mermaids enhance the story with imaginative characters and circumstances." For more info check out her site at jaimiengle.com
