When I picked up the first part of this trilogy, City of the Beasts, I didn't know what to expect, but was soon enchanted by the spiritual ideas that presented in an easy-to-read novel. The second part, Kingdom of the Golden Dragon, continues to take the reader on a spiritual journey into different cultures, and different ways of thinking. In an age where most people are obsessed by material wealth and technological advances, it is nice to see a novel for young readers that puts this western thinking into contrast with tribal (in City of the Beasts) and spiritual (Buddhism in Kingdom of the Golden Dragon).

Like in the first book, the main characters are Alexander, a youth from California, and Nadia, a young girl Alexander met on his first adventure in the Amazon. Together, with Alex's grandmother Kate, who writes for the International Geographic, they venture to the Forbidden Kingdom. Nestled in the himalayas, this kingdom is cut of from civilization as we know it, and is run by a wise buddhist ruler. Legend says that it is home of the Golden Dragon, a statue said to be able to tell the future.

Meanwhile, the second richest man of the US, a computer genius, hires "The Specialist" to steal exactly this dragon, hoping to become the richest man in the States. During a ceremony for the king, 6 girls, among them Nadia, are kidnapped. Alexander, who has a hunch that it may be connected with the Golden Dragon, ventures out to find the girls.

What unfolds is an adventurous battle between the two young heros with the king's son and master as well as an army of yetis, against the sect of the scorpion and "the Specialist."

The book is a beautiful introduction into buddhism as well a shamanism (the two heros are able to separate their spirit from their body and turn into their totemic animals). The only complaint I have is that the main villain was too easily to identify, especially after reading City of the Beasts. Instead of spinning a new plot of the mastermind, Allende basically re-used the villain of the first part.

Book 2 of a trilogy of adventures. Each story is filled with educational
information about culture(s) and the beliefs that inform the society where
the story unfolds. Purchased more as gifts.

I did not expect to read a young adult fiction when I ordered this book, but it seems clear to me that Allende left behind the complex sociology, interpersonal relationships of her previous epics. The extensive vocabulary is gone, making it easily accessible to young readers. A book of fantasy.

I originally read this in Spanish class in high school. I was so immersed in the book I wound up finishing before others. The details with characters and the story line are amazing! And no I'm not spoiling anything, get this is read for yourself :)

Although written for young adults, this book - and the entire trilogy - took me away from my 52 year old body and into an exquisite adventure. Of course, I also believe that Isabel Allende is a sublime writer with a brilliant imagination. If it's fiction and she's the writer, it will be an exquisite read - regardless of the intended audience.

I'm a fan of Allende so I bought this book for my grand kids but ended up reading it myself. So far we all love it, it's hard to put down. I recond it you won't be disappointed.

All of the books in this series are fun easy reads, more for children coming of age. I did enjoy the mature and sometimes paranormal concepts these books have to offer. The characters are engaging and have thought provoking adventures. While this is definitely a read I would have enjoyed more as a young adult, I liked them enough to finish all 3 within a week or so.
More of a teen level novel that gets tiresome at times with the many repetitions of things to ensure you "get it". It is tipicall Isabel Allende style as of late.
