    1 thought on “The Search for the Red Dragon”

    1. The Search for the Red Dragon picks up 9 years after the events in the first book. It finds our two protagonists, John and Charles called to London by the their friend and third protagonist Jack. The three friends are soon called back to the Archipelago to deal with a crisis: the disappearance of all the children.Overall, I did not like this book as much as I if the first. I found the pacing to be a lot more slow and I was not feeling inclined to pick it back up when I put it down. However, I pr [...]

    2. Just as awesome as its prequel. I love how Owen ties multiple myths neatly in together; makes one wonder if they weren't all connected to begin with!P.S - Charles, I know there's an age thing here but, MARRY ME!UPDATED AFTER RE-READ: I think I figured out the event and the change this time around If only there was some way to confirm it :(

    3. The story starts with the touch of Peter Pan.And then comes various Historical Figures - Sir James Barrie, Roger Bacon, Dante, Harry Houdini, Arthur Conan Doyle, Amelia Earhart, Richard Burton and several others and their adventures,Historical Events - Children’s Crusades, Greek Mythology - Jason and Argonauts, Daedalus,Folk Stories - “Pied Piper of Hamelin”, “Hansel and Gretel” and “Snow White”, Ends with the hint of The Second World War.Adventurous- this adjective is enough to de [...]

    4. This is Book 2 in the Chronicles of the Imaginarium Geographica. This series is not for those who are looking for hot-and-heavy romance mixed with their fantasy, nor is it for those looking for magic mixed with graphic violence. It's PG fantasy, heavy on the literary allusions, and meant for middle-school readers (even though the main characters are adults.) It's a lot more fun to read than it sounds, but you have to pay attention!John, Jack and Charles have been having strange dreams of childre [...]

    5. I’m such a sucker for stories that weave together mythologies and fairy tales from all around the world. I still don’t like Jack, but I really enjoyed this book.

    6. The Search for the Red Dragon by James A.Owens This book is about three professors from London named "John, Jack and Charles" go on an adventure to an imaginary world called " the Archipelago of Dreams" to help save the world from any great evil.In this book,they come back after nearly nine years after their first visit to it to investigate the disappearance of all the children and "Dragonships" in the world. Their only hope is to fine the rare Dragonship,the "Red Dragon" in order to find all of [...]

    7. I was really rather pleased with the first book in the series, and even more so with the second. The author, having found his stride at the end of the first story, has managed to write a tighter novel while retaining the same clever twists and references that I found a delight in the original. Several weak characters from the first story were rounded out quite a bit in the second, and the newly introduced characters seemed more motivated (although Laura Glue reminded me so much of Suzy Blue from [...]

    8. Sadly I don't remember much about the first book.One thing though that I remember strongly is the tower of time and fortunately plays a great role in this book. In this one there is a great plot which connects Peter Pan, greek mythology and of course some great literature figures. Oh and also Hudini. I loved what he did with Hudini!!The way the author connects all the dots is so great!The characters were more real in this one and we found out more about them.I think I am starting to have a favor [...]

    9. Absolutely loved this sequel that characterized C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien and fantastic fairy and mythological tales ☺️

    11. I really love these books!! They remind me of once upon a time (yes, the TV show) in that they take history and mythology and folklore and stories and they weave it all together in such interesting ways. This particular book had a lot of Peter Pan sort of lore, and I really loved it! Compared to other books I've read and given 5 stars to, these books don't quite make it there. But so far this is a 5 star sort of series for me. It's lighthearted and fun, but there are real consequences. Character [...]

    12. I really enjoyed this book, though not as much as the first one (hence the 4/5 stars instead of 5/5. If I could give it any rating, it would be 4.5 stars, but I'm rounding down to 4 because I want to differentiate it from my 5/5 rating for the first book). I LOVE how lots of myths and legends come into play in the book, especially the characters, both historical and fictional, who appear, such as James Barry, Peter Pan, Circe, etc. My favourite character is definitely Charles, though Aven and Jo [...]

Launguage-G; Sexual Content-G; Violence-G; It's been nine years since John, Jack, and Charles had their adventure in the Archipelago of Dreams and became Caretakers of the Imaginarium Geographica. Now they are going back to save the Archipelago again, this time someone has been stealing the children of the Archipelago.

    14. Ok so this book was even better than the first!! Here we find out the names of the characters and their mythology/historical background! We even have a mystery bad guy who is literally a shadow! Dragons, a badger, machines, strange creatures, new islands. underworld and an awesome adventure awaits! The lost boys are featured in this mystery as all the children are disappearing onto stolen dragon ships and no one can figure out why!! The author has an awesome imagination, because he can tie toget [...]

    15. I am so glad that I decided to read the second book in this series. It was such an enjoyable read. The story was so creative and entertaining, with twists and turns the whole way. I felt that the characters were more believable and well-developed in this book, and the suspense kept me on my toes until the very end. I do wish that more had been explained in the end, but am hoping, since where the story left off, that it will all be cleared up in the next novel in the series.I cannot wait to read [...]

    16. Druhý díl téhle série byl skvělý, stejně jako ten první. Autor mě opět překvapil, jakou zápletku si vymyslel a jak mistrně do ní začlenil další postavy a souvislosti. Líbí se mi jak propojuje v knížce přítomnost s bájemi, slavnými osobnostmi, smyšlenými postavami, pohádkami, minulostí zdá se, že tohle vše nelze spojit, aby vznikl smysluplný příběh, ale tahle knížka dokazuje, že to jde! *Moje nejoblíbenější postava zůstává i nadále Jack, protože je [...]

    17. I think the author tried too hard with the pastiche/crossover elements in this one. As much as I like Greek mythology, here it was confusing and unnecessary; cutting it out would have really improved the story. Unfortunately the clunky dialog and characters continue from the first book, but I wasn't able to overlook them as much this time.The third book is my brother's favorite in the series, so I'll read that one and then probably be done.2.5 stars

    18. The premise for this series is fabulous, and the way the history of myth is woven into the plot line in this second volume feels even more natural than it did in the first story. I'm also really enjoying the audio version as the narrator uses excellent voices to delineate the characters (he has one voice that is so like Winston Churchill it isn't even funny).

    19. Started off a little slowly, but picked up about halfway through. I really like the way he intermingles characters from a variety of different stories, genres, and historical periods into one connected plot. Will be reading more of the series.

    20. my head is now spinning with all i want to read and learn about greek mythology, and rereading Peter pan, and starting LOTR.

    21. I love this book and this series! I thoroughly enjoy the allusions to many famous authors and their works that are subtly intertwined in the stories. Great writing!

    22. It's so delightfully literary and bizarre. For instance (spoiler alert): C.S. Lewis rescues Peter Pan from Plato's Cave, where Mordred is keeping him captive.

    23. This is a very good book with a mixture of many fantasy stories that are well known. This is a good book for all people of all ages

    24. John, Jack and Charles return to the Archipelago to assist a young girl named Laura Glue, and discover what happened to the missing Dragonship, the Red Dragon. It incorporates a combination of Greek Myth, Peter Pan, The Pied Piper of Hamlin, Dante, King Arthur, and Orpheus with fantasy and magic. It is wonderful to see, how through Owen's eyes, the myths and tales are melded and come alive. We also see how the three main characters grow and change through their experiences.

    25. I really cannot express how much I love this series. I am so grateful that Shiloah introduced me to it. If you want to play amongst fairy tales and myths and classic stories and see intense connections between them all, take a romp in this series. I thought I loved the first one, but this one added my dear Peter Pan, and so I am even more smitten.Favorite quotes:"What if a young man, say, a painter from Austria, seemingly normal, absolutely unremarkable, was destined to one day become a terrible [...]

    26. Eu comentei o primeiro livro dessa série, Here, there be dragons no começo do mês, observando que tinha sido um início meio morno, mas ainda assim interessante. Eu tinha esperado mais do livro inicialmente e ele acabara um tanto aquém das minhas expectativas.Talvez por ter lido este segundo volume já sem esperar demais, eu tenha realmente me surpreendido com o turno que a história tomou; a forma como Owens conseguiu explorar diferentes níveis de narrativa, não apenas intercalando, mas t [...]
