Review @LRWLee - Vision of the Griffin's Heart by L.R.W. Lee (Andy Smithson #5)

Vision of the Griffin’s Heart
Andy Smithson #5
by L.R.W. Lee

Goodreads blurb:  The evil Abbadon, king of Oomladee's northern neighbor Hadession, steps up his attacks on Andy and Mom at home in Lakehills, TX over the next year, unnerving Andy as he overhears speculation that Methuselah may no longer be able to defeat this nemesis. But why?

Over a year later, Andy arrives back in Oomaldee to discover why zolt have been mysteriously parading through the dungeon and disappearing, for years. And it's not good.

Tensions run high as more and more citizens are turned into zolt. But there's more going on than meets the eye, for the effectiveness of Abaddon's strikes defeating the military's planned counter measures reveal he's getting inside information. Could there a spy in their midst?

Despite the chaos, Andy receives a clue for the fifth ingredient needed for the curse-breaking potion, the claw of a griffin. There's one not-so-small problem however--griffins guard the land of Carta's gold and silver mines and don't take kindly to humans. While away in Carta, fears over an imminent attack materialize and Abaddon with his new mage, Fides, enact a campaign of terror no one could have imagined!

About the Author:  Since the age of eight, L. R. W. Lee wanted to write a children’s book, but felt she did not have anything significant to share; she sought to change lives while entertaining. A degree in Accounting did not provide riveting fodder for a best seller, so she waited. Over a decade, she founded and grew a company, during which, she worked closely with a mentor from whom she learned uncommon thinking that changed her life. After selling her business in early 2012, she had time to write and, more importantly, something significant to share.

L. R. W. Lee lives in scenic Austin, TX with her husband, daughter and son.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

***Received the ebook in exchange for an honest review

The cover is amazing!!  I love it, and it is perfect for the book!

This is the 5th book in the series and over 200 pages of awesomeness!  This is a teen book!  While you probably could get away with reading the books out of order, I do not recommend it!  Your journey will be so much more if you read them in order because they all refer back to previous events, and it makes the characters and world that much more fantastic!

L.R.W. Lee does a fantastic job hitting on topics that parents and teachers alike struggle with when it comes to our kids.  I don’t want to give anything away though.  She makes it real because everything is not perfect, and bad things do happen.  The characters struggle to get through things especially Andy, and he makes mistakes like a typical human.  This book is definitely an emotional rollercoaster, and I did shed tears.

This is a great series that I highly recommend!  Eventually, I will collect them all for my classroom because I think the students can get something out of the books and enjoy it!!!  I really want more like NOW, but sigh, I have to wait!
