"Mask of the Dragon" is a book written by Deviant which is story of childhood innocence and the supernatural. The featured character is a 16-year old girl named Abigail Palmer, who hasn't outgrown an imaginary friend, a black dragon named Dominic, whom she has leaned on since the loss of her parents, a decade ago.
Like most teenagers, she going through the typical pressures of her choice of friend and passing a driving test, and outside pressures like her Aunt Gladys and Reverend Davidson. But over the years Abigail noticed some unusual changes involving Dominic. Instead of him being under her complete control, the dragon has taken a life of his own, leaving Abigail to wonder if she's responsible for his behavior... or perhaps "Dominic" is more that he seems.
When I first read this book, I will admit, I was rather confused about certain characters until I fully received a better understanding as I read further. The book also adds a dash of mystery as certain clues scattered throughout the story adds some spice to the truth and when the truth came out, everything else I read throughout the story was making sense.
I have to admit that as I was reading this I was picturing Eddie Murphy as the voice of Dominic but as I read further I felt Sean Connery would have been more appropriate here. This book is an epic fantasy story in which you are caught in the middle of a fine line between what is reality and what is fantasy and also how not to judge people from first impressions without getting to know them.
By all means, I would recommend this book to read and I'm looking forward to the sequel that is current working on. Ash, this was quite a journey you took me on. Well done.

Some People are Totally Crazy!
Earlier today I had an incident that made me very angry! I was shopping at my supermarket when I was approached by a man trying to tell me to get out of the store because he thinks I'm following him. I told him I don't know what he's talking about but he continued with his tirade and even pushed me without being provoking. I told him to leave me alone and he pushes me again. this had me punching this guy in the face and tried to manhandle me resulting in in knocking over a plant display. This had several employees breaking up this and they threw this guy, who looks like Colin Kaepernick with a big reggae hairdo, out of the store. As I was paying for my groceries, he kept glaring at me and was waiting outside the supermarket. The people there called the police and as the police was arriving, that's when he decided to leave the premises. I would later file a harassment report to the officers that arrived. I'm just afraid that one day he may seriously injure someone in the future. Now
Tagged! 8 Facts - Briedam
I was tagged by TheOwlGoesMoo - Hobbyist, Digital Artist | DeviantArt so I am here to share eight facts about one of my OC's. And the subject will be Briedam. Briedam actually originated as what would be a one-off character for a birthday greeting only to draw quite a bit of positive attention. Bridam's name is a combination of the names of two types of cheeses, Brie and Edam. This is a common trait in which many mouse characters are named after types of cheeses. Briedam is such a fashionista that she can wear anything, whether formal or casual and with no preferences for color. What she wears depends on the occasion. Briedam developed a unique friendship with a cat named Bengal, who out of nowhere rescued her from a wicked mouse named Max. Given the nature between cats and mice, she was frightened of him at first but then she saw his chivalrous nature. Now they've become what you could called an "Anti- Tom and Jerry". Briedam likes to play music and so far she can play guitar, flute
When I was a kid, I was very much into the "Batmania" when the campy "Batman" series first aired in 1966. I was into collecting the comic books, cards, toys and plastic figures sold at the time. I don't have those things anymore but now today I can laugh at the things from the show that at the time went over my head as a kid.
A couple of possible free agents.
Now that the winter meeting have started, how would like these two playing on your team?
Thank you Hector. I'm glad you enjoyed the ride. I'm laughing at the casting with Dominic, because I've been told by a reader they heard James Woods for another character. Both are good choices though. If I'm lucky, Path of the Dragon will be out by the holidays.
