In The New Lizard Queen: A Dragonstone Story, Book III by Mark M. Even, Mandy and all her blood relatives have magical abilities inherited from a wizard ancestor. After Mandy's cousin, Joey, is injured in a car accident and none of his family members has the necessary healing powers, Mandy summons a golden dragon who advises her to seek out unicorn saliva, which contains the most potent healing magic in the universe. The unicorn asks Mandy for the fruit of the Red Araza bush in exchange for its saliva. Now that Joey is well, Mandy and her family can relax and spend quality time together. But the world still needs Mandy and her family's unique abilities, and they soon start working closely with the FBI. Join this adventure as Mandy proves to be the deserving queen of a herd of giant lizards and travels 200,000 miles to the moon to save NASA astronauts and her magical relatives as they try to thwart weapons smugglers.

Nothing prevents you from reading The New Lizard Queen, regardless of age, whether you're 18 or 30. This is a lovely young adult novel that emphasizes the value of family and friendship. Suspense and fascinating drama will keep you glued to its pages. The author's writing informs the reader's mental eye, and they will be able to conjure up images in their minds to transport them to the fantasy world. The scene in which the twin sisters, Mary and Jane, magically transform by joining their hands while wearing their amulets will awe any reader. This, in my opinion, is one of the book's most fascinating scenes. The events flowed smoothly, and the plot was simple to follow. Mark M. Even created mysteries and conflicts to solve using his main characters. This factor was crucial in ensuring that the plot was character-driven. This book will stimulate and feed your imagination and provide incredible insight into the importance of surrounding yourself with people who care about your well-being and the value of family love. Enjoy!
