Battle in the Park (The Acts of the Dragons Book 4) by Jarrod Edge is an action-packed short story that captures an exciting scene from this award-winning series. Four siblings, Elizabeth, Rebecca, Matthew and Jacob Sette, are tricked into a fight against an opposing group comprised of a number of their cousins. Led by Robbie, their cousins seem to be winning initially. As each group hurls snowballs to overpower their opponents, they realize that it will require tact and precision to win the game. Moments pass and the heated game continues without any side relenting. Who will be the winner and what strategies will they have to apply to subdue the challengers?
Though short, Battle in the Park by Jarrod Edge is a riveting read that will have young readers on the edge of their seats. The energy of the characters and their tactics in the game added to the captivating nature of the story. The parallel between the two subplots of the book, which are the thrilling game at the park and the brief account of the frustrating discontent of those under the Teacher, was an interesting contrast. The ending was unexpected and suspenseful and left me wanting more of the series. Overall, Battle in the Park by Jarrod Edge has an engaging plot that will suit both young and older readers. I loved every bit of it and would love to read more books in The Acts of the Dragons series.
