The Mechanical Dragon (Book 3): Letisha Tate is trying to tackle becoming a big sister. Toby hears somebody whispering in the walls of the little shop. Sheridan tries to handle his uncle’s booming jam business and manage a hoard of helpful Nixies. It’s not easy being the guardian of a magical time-bending watch. Sometimes Letisha can’t help using it for everyday problems. But when a mysterious dragon-shaped automaton is delivered and addressed to her, she’ll need more than a few tricks to outwit a new enemy. When the trio set out into the Otherworld to discover its origins, they get more than they bargained for. Suddenly the very fabric of reality is at risk.

Fantastic book! Very hard to put down. This book is gripping from start to finish. Although it’s a childrens book, I enjoyed reading it and I think any adult would. Very intelligently written with fantastic characters and a clever storyline. I would love to see this book turned into a film.

This is one of those books that you shouldn’t pick up to read if you’ve got an appointment in the next couple of hours. With all the adventure you would expect in a book called ‘Dragons and Dreamsellers’, this book is a delight to read with plot twists and turns that keep you guessing right to the last page. Whether you’re a child, or a child at heart, this book will give you hours of enjoyment and wouldn’t be out of place mentioned in the same breath as Narnia, Potter or Middle-Earth!

Krista will be scheduling readings in the local area ahead of the release of her third book The Mechanical Dragon in 2024. Please get in touch to discuss availability.
