{Synopsis} – Pick a book. Grow a Reader!

This series is part of Scholastic’s early chapter book line, Branches, aimed at newly independent readers. With easy-to-read text, high-interest content, fast-paced plots, and illustrations on every page, these books will boost reading confidence and stamina. Branches books help readers grow.

In the 12th book of this fantasy series, Maldred is after the powerful Gold Key! Drake and Rori travel to the lair of the Gold Dragon to help protect the key. There, they meet a new Dragon Master named Darma. If dark wizard Maldred gets his hands on the Gold Key, he will be one step closer to controlling a powerful Earthquake Dragon. Can the Dragon Masters stop him before it’s too late? The action is nonstop in this exciting, heavily illustrated early chapter book series!

{My thoughts} – In the last book we’d learned that the evil wizard Maldred had managed to get away with the Silver Key. Drake had gotten a gift from the Silver Dragon’s Dragon Master the proved to be very useful in this book.

When they get to the Gold Dragon’s Lair they are too late. Maldred had gotten help and Eko had taken the Golden Key. They tried to stop him, but they weren’t able to at this time.

The Dragon Master in the Golden Dragon’s Lair helps them get to where Eko disappeared to. They travel to try and figure out what they can do to try and get the Key’s back. They hope that Eko would lead them right to Maldred. Eko did and then they had more to worry about.

This has been a fun book to read. I am learning more and more about the dragons in the series and about their powers. It is very interesting to me and I am interested in seeing what will come of Eko and Maldred in future books. I look forward to reading the next book in the series soon.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
