Reviews - What do customers think about The Legend of Lutung?
Author Mar 5, 2006
Hello, As the Author of the Legend of Lutung, I would like to give my customers a brief synopsis of this amazing young adult fantasy adventure. I like to read the cover of a book before I buy it, so here is what is printed on the back of my book.
In a cave deep in the earth, Evil is locked away. Out for a day of bird hunting, Crispin and Kendo happen upon the cave, exploring it's hidden treasures, they accidentally release the Evil God Lutung. Lutung and his four demon lizards take the boys and the island hostage. Now it's up to the boy's older brother Serafin, and his animal friends to face the battle of a lifetime, and put Evil back in it's place.
Editor Review: for "kids of all ages" Feb 15, 2006
I was asked to do some editing of this novel when it was being written. I must say that I found myself getting so caught up in the story that I had to remind myself occasionally that I was supposed to be reading the book as an editor. Janice does a fantastic job of describing her novel's characters and she brings them to life with their "own voices." As I read the book, I had the images running through my mind as if I were watching a Disney production. In fact, I believe that this story could easily be adapted to such animation. At my age, I'm no kid, but the kid inside of me got very excited and caught up in The Legend of Lutung. As cliché as it sounds, my opinion is that this novel is for "kids of all ages," even us adult kids.
