Woaahh! What was that? Was it an adventure filled jungle safari or was I watching a Marvel movie?
All the youngsters out there, grab a copy of “Iora And the Quest of Five” from Amazon India, fasten your seatbelts and get on the action and adventure packed mind blowing trip with gutsy eleven year old Iora.
‘Iora and the Quest of Five’ is the first book in the series of six by acclaimed author Arefa Tehsin who belongs to Udaipur. The book is a fantasy fiction for young adults but I, a middle aged woman, enjoyed reading the book so much that I finished reading the 260 odd page book in just one sitting.
Iora is a young courageous girl, a Twitter, living with her tribe in Twitterland hidden deep inside the rainforest. One day she overhears the plot to kill her father who is away on a business trip and she embarks on an arduous journey to Wacky Wilderness to save her father. She soon realizes that not just her father but the entire forest is in danger and she has to save it. Would she along with her trusted aides Beetle, Owlus and Baba be able to save the forest from Dark Forces?
This roller coaster ride will take you to the enchanting and mysterious places concealed behind the dark green foliage of the jungle. You will encounter the most elusive jungle dwellers, so be alert and keep your eyes wide open to witness the secrets of this magical land.
Arefa’s knowledge of jungles and wild animals is quite evident in her writing. Not only does the book thrill the readers with adventure, but also imparts a crucial message of the importance of preserving biodiversity by protecting the forests and our environment.
“Faith in yourself, wisdom to use what you know and to learn what you do not, an uncanny survival instinct, unfaltering hope, and a measure of equilibrium to balance all the above. These are the qualities that make a living being whole.” These powerful words of the Angels will leave the readers with self belief, determination and confidence.
