In Defense of the Empire / ****'s (Star's) ADVENTURE - Book 3 is the third book in the series for readers age 9 to 14 and older. It continues the saga of the hero THAT YOU, THE READER, MUST NAME. For this adventure our young hero will have to travel far from his valley. A seafaring man, Sinksalot, has come to the village near the Palace to see what kind of place it is. Someday he will retire from the sea and is looking for a good place to live in retirement. He has a wonderful dream. He has had this dream for many, many years and yet is still unfulfilled. **** learns of Sinksalot's dream while visiting some friends and gets very excited about it. He meets Sinksalot in the town square and before long a new adventure is in the making. This adventure is like no other **** has experienced. He must endure situations with a huge reptile, the big cats, deep water, powerful explosions and more. Our hero will have to deal with dangers that he cannot possibly imagine. One of these dangers includes a marvelous new boat. A boat like no other that is known. All that, plus adding his part in saving the neighboring Emperor's throne from being taken away by a greedy and evil thinking Baron, makes for a really good adventure. There are many new and colorful characters. Just as in the two previous books in the series, this book has many words that may be new to the younger reader. They are in bold print and are explained in the glossary at the end of the story. Text boxed "life lessons" are written throughout the story too. WHAT WILL YOUR NAME FOR **** BE? Happy hours of enjoyable reading are just ahead.
