Beast Quest: New Blood

Publisher: Orchard

Review

Cousins Amy, Sam and Charlie are astounded when they inherit magical bracelets, known as Arcane Bands, which enable them to produce weapons and shields. The children discover that they are descendants of the Guardians of Avantia, courageous heroes who entered the human world through a portal, decades earlier. They must continue the quest of their ancestors, to locate a collection of missing Beast eggs and protect them from Malvel, a ruthless Dark Wizard, who plans to harness the power of the Beasts to become invincible.

When Sam discovers the first egg, he is thrilled when a small dragon emerges from the shell. He names her Spark and the pair form a close bond. However, the hatching has alerted Malvel to the dragon’s existence, so the cousins must work together to master their new skills if they are to prevent him from snatching Spark and absorbing her power.

Full of monsters, dragons and magic, this action-packed fantasy adventure is enhanced by striking graphic novel-style illustrations. The new series of tales will delight fans of the many previous Beast Quest collections, as well as introducing the Guardians of Avantia to a new generation of readers.
