If you love adventure and are looking for a detailed oriented book to read in the new year, I have a suggestion for you. Kevin D. Grant, author of Nelish Daring Quest, writes about Nelish, a peacock who defies tradition and is courageous and survives the odds. You will find yourself enthralled by the village of Malihayah, and Nelish and his friends working together to defeat their enemies. The characters and the communities are well developed and Nelish inspires the reader to be adventurous, brave, and committed to a cause. I recommend this book for 4th grade and up due to its density, length, and vocabulary. I think this book can be enjoyed by children and young adults.
