The Power of the Emerald Ring: A Dragonstone Story is a work of fiction in the fantasy genre and the second book in the Dragonstone series. It is aimed at children and young people new to reading and was penned by author Mark M. Even. Follow the adventures of Mandy Mandez and her family as they discover their ability to harness magic under the tutelage of the wizard J. T. The story sees Mandy and her family trying to determine the best way to use their powers for good, despite the presence of an evil wizard seeking to hoard all the wealth and power that they can. What results is a highly engrossing magical fantasy tale that is sure to keep young readers turning pages from cover to cover.

Author Mark M. Even has crafted a spellbinding work of children’s fiction with plenty of charm and innovation to offer its readers. One of the most essential features of this work is the talent the author displays in worldbuilding through such details as the magical powers that Mandy can wield and how these powers can be adapted, or even abused by those with evil on their minds. The book is highly accessible and dramatic without being frightening, making it a wonderful reading experience for solo readers. I could also easily see its bright and inspiring message being a lovely classroom read too. Overall, I would highly recommend The Power of the Emerald Ring to fans of classic fantasy tales, imaginative children’s fiction, and for young independent readers everywhere.
