what other authors say about DRAGON VALLEY:
"Dragon Valley is chock-full of adventure, fantasy, with a bit of epic battle thrown in. I work with young writers and see nuggets of literary gold all the time. But this kid, Luke Herzog, has unearthed a gold mine here. The writing here is a sparkling achievement." -- Newbery Award winner Kwame Alexander, author of Crossroads
“The image in Christopher Paolini’s rear-view mirror is a fast approaching superstar to the genre of fantasy writing. Luke Herzog’s debut novel Dragon Valley flies at breakneck pace as a new clutch of dragons struggle in their (timeless) quest of good versus evil. Sprinkled with symbolism, readers will love taking flight with this fresh cast of characters.” -- Mike Shoulders, author of Say Daddy!
"It is rare to find such an imaginative, well written story from a first time author! When Albert Einstein said, ‘Never stop thinking like a child,’ this is what he meant!! Delightful, creative storytelling! I hope his second book isn't far behind!"
-- Denise Brennan-Nelson, author of Willow
"What a treat! What an imagination! An epic story of scientifically-spawned dragons fighting to survive. Writing a novel isn't easy -- for Luke Herzog to write one before entering middle school is simply amazing!"
-- Eric Elfman, author of Almanac of the Gross, Disgusting & Totally Repulsive
"Luke Herzog has written an epic dragon tale full of adventure and heart. An impressive story written by a clearly talented 11-year old kid!" -- Robin Mellom, author of Ditched and The Classroom
“Luke Herzog is a great storyteller! Kids will love the colorful world he created in Dragon Valley. The book is quite an achievement. I look forward to more from this young author.” -- Christy Raedeke, author of Prophecy of Days series
