Publisher's Summary

Twelve-year-old siblings Karina and Charlie Rosas aren't looking forward to vacationing with their estranged uncle. But when the Fernweh Express derails and tosses them into a wild, unrecognizable land, they trust he'll know what to do. After all, Diego Rosas wrote the book on survival in deserts and arctic tundras. There's nothing he can't handle...until a colossal, fire-breathing dragon snatches him up and carries him away, leaving the siblings to embark on an impossible rescue mission. 

With the natural elements working against them, the Rosas family adventures through the curse-infested, uncharted world in order to solve the mystery of what doomed their travels. When they meet up with a dwarf and a pirate queen who offer aid, Karina and Charlie must decide whether they can trust anyone willing to voyage into a dragon's den. But if the siblings ever want to return home, they must trust and lean on each other, and above all, hope Uncle Diego is still alive.

Fun story!

This was a fun, fast listen. The characters are wonderful and very well developed. It was about family, environmental values and perseverance. I definitely recommend it.

Wonderful family adventure

This was a lot of fun. The story was original, and yet included many favorite mythical characters in an unobtrusive way. A great story about values, family, perseverance, and respect for nature, but mostly a fun adventure. The characters are wonderful. I received a free review copy of the audio version of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Awesome read for the whole family!

I greatly enjoyed this fun novel for readers of all ages. Karina and Charlie Rosas are two awesome characters and along with their uncle Diego made this an entertaining read. The narrator did an excellent job. I received this free audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
