Isle of Dragons: The Ruler of Vansh by author L. A. Thompson is a work of fiction in the fantasy, adventure, and action subgenres and the third novel in the Isle of Dragons series. It is intended for the young adult reading audience. In this next installment, secrets unravel, and alliances face their ultimate tests as the rebels confront King Jarrod's formidable forces. Against the backdrop of the crumbling Isle of Dragons, Jade Sol and her friends scramble to unite the remaining rebel forces for a final confrontation. The stakes reach new heights with the gateway between the spirit realm and the human realm opens. King Jarrod, driven by the prophecy to kill the earth spirit, tightens his grip on the land. Faced with the responsibility of uncovering the truth about the dark prophecy and destroying the final stone, Jade must confront personal sacrifices.

Author L. A. Thompson never fails with this fantastic series, and this third installment is a satisfying blend of adventure, magic, and emotional resonance that builds on so much character investment and worldbuilding from before to become more poignant than ever. The intricate plotlines and dynamic characters are woven into a rich tapestry of fantasy, action, and self-discovery with themes of sacrifice, destiny, and the true cost of saving the world. The tension is palpable as the narrative hurtles toward an epic showdown, leaving readers on the edge of their seats, and I was racing to see where the next danger would come from. Jade has grown so much with such a deep narrative that her struggles and triumphs feel real, and I can easily imagine YA audiences falling more in love with her than ever in this third adventure. Overall, Isle of Dragons: The Ruler of Vansh is a highly recommended read for fans of the series so far: you won’t want to miss it.
