Happy Book Birthday, Windy Hollow by Tara Tyler!!!

Tara had a long journey to get this book published!

Beast World MG Fantasy Series, book #3
by Tara Tyler
Available NOW!

In BROKEN BRANCH FALLS, Gabe and his friends go on a quest to save their school, blowing up all the rules, and discover their origins.

Then they go to CRADLE ROCK and meet some real live humans, scaring them into attack mode. The Beasts realize they have to spread the truth ASAP.

Now, school's out, and Gabe is ready for a break from all the drama...

Gabe and his friends fly over the Great Sea for the wedding of the century: a dragon prince and a beautiful harpy. But Gabe can't relax on this vacation. Besides competing in rigorous wedding events, he overhears the nearby human village WINDY HOLLOW is in danger from an evil human scientist and a vengeful were-ogre experimenting on beasts. Gabe and his friends risk crossing the mountains to help, despite several warnings. 

Maybe he's going too far this time, but he's in too deep to quit. It's do or die, hopefully not die!

Paperback ~~~ Ebook

And here are my thoughts...because I already have read it!

Gabe and his friends head off into another unexpected and exciting adventure...one that is even more thrilling than the first two.

Excitement and expectations run high as Gabe and his friends are invited to attend a wedding, which being between a dragon prince and a harpy, is bound to be something to see. Toss in the knowledge that the Council is about to reveal to everyone that humans and beasts, and this is an experience none of them want to miss. Unfortunately, evil is not far away. A horrible scientist is lurking in the dark shadows of the castle above. Gabe and his friends are told to stay out of it, but they know they can't do that.

This is the third book in the series, and I recommend reading them in order since the characters and background information does help understand this book better.

Gabe and his friends are a spunky, brave and a 'not-always-listening-to-what-they're-told-to-do' bunch of teen beasts. They are kind-hearted, have a great moral compass, stand with each other, and yet, have all those problems younger teens tend to have. There are misunderstandings, hurt feelings, and mistakes...but they always work out in the end. Although these are beasts, they are as human as any human can be. 

Boring is not the word for this book. From the first moment on, something is always happening and the tension builds from chapter to chapter. What appears at first to be a simple problem, layers with secrets and mutates into a challenging adventure. There are many twists and turns, and surprises. It's hard to put this book down until the last page. Among all of the adventure, there are also lovely messages about friendship and trust. 

This is a read fantasy fans are sure to enjoy.
