Dawn Of The Sand
A fantasy coming of age adventure with a female protagonist.
A MYSTICAL WHITE EAGLE, A CHARMED BOOK, AND A GIRL WITH SPECIAL POWERS...
In a world where sorcery is feared, Princess Martina conceals her paranormal powers, especially when her brother is against her. Finding a true friend in the peasant boy Enzo, her secret seems safe. But when tragedy strikes the royal palace, Martina’s careful world is torn to pieces. Brother and sister find themselves on an epic magical quest to save the kingdom from war and famine, vicious mythical beasts, and a tyrannical king. But Prince Drago has secrets of his own, and a heart of wickedness that no amount of good magic can brighten.
Dark days cloud Brightalia, and only one last hope remains before total devastation. Can Martina be a hero and defeat the evil that lurks throughout their land? Or are the days of their beloved kingdom over forever?
This is one extraordinary adventure. The distinctive characters and descriptive scenarios can easily captivate readers of all age. But beyond that, the writer ingeniously adds lovely life lessons about family values, social justice, and perseverance. These are concepts that are always good to remind society and especially our children and teenagers. The colorful cover and each of the pages leave you with the desire to read more. A brilliant idea of bringing the characters to life with their portraits at the end of the book! You can easily relate to them during the reading. Jessica's unique imagination has definitely created a new princess “Martina” for all Disney lovers. Looking forward to having the opportunity to read part II of “Magical Eyes”. The story is a "gem" that I am pretty sure will become a classic.

Jessica D'Agostini should be commended for writing such an outstanding book. From the richly illustrated cover of the book, you find yourself drawn into a world where magical mystery exists. You discover a world that is in turmoil. What makes this book so unique is that it will appeal to both young adults and adults. I can see it easily be read by a parent to her child and know that both of them will enjoy the adventure. This book ranks right up there with the beloved Disney movies that I grew up with and loved.
