Dawn of Legends is the second volume of Matt Dragovits' A Tale for Christmas series featuring illustrations by J.J. Varabkanich. On their way to the North Pole, Kris and his wife Jessica, alongside a group of toymaker elves, are ambushed by an army of goblins. Fortunately, another band of warrior elves comes to their rescue, and they find sanctuary among them. Soon, Kris and Jessica find themselves mesmerized by the magic of the nature elves while they help them build the Divine Reactor. Meanwhile, the goblins have captured Yeti, and his friend Jax is eager to launch a rescue mission. But a powerful dark sorcerer named Tanas leads the goblin army, and he has spawned snow golems to destroy humanity. Can Jax and his friends stop Tanas from acting upon his nefarious plans? Will Kris be able to deliver the Christmas presents?

Dawn of Legends is a fascinating epic adventure tale highlighting the importance of hope, friendship, resilience, and faith. Matt Dragovits has built a magical world that sparks your imagination and leaves you with wonder and awe. Using a fast-paced narrative, the author spins an absorbing plot filled with curveballs that take you by surprise. The characters have vibrant personalities and traits that make an impression on the reader. Everyone has unique strengths that can used to contribute to society and make the world a better place to live, and this story beautifully incorporates this message. J.J. Varabkanich's illustrations offer readers visual stimuli to enhance the reading experience. I absolutely loved the Santa reveal and thoroughly enjoyed the book overall. Recommended to children and young adults alike.
