Goodreads Blurb:
 Do dragons exist? Do our dreams become part of our reality? Einarr, a young warrior, follows a riddle from his father to find the treasure of his life. Gaby, a little girl and passionate reader, makes an amazing discovery within the pages of an antique book. Pat climbs a mountain to escape overwhelming changes in his life and his sick pregnant wife.
Set in three different time periods, we accompany the protagonists and their individual stories through the challenges and discoveries that change their lives forever. Although separated by time, their adventures and encounters are intricately intertwined across the years. What all of the characters in this book have in common may change your life forever. The mystery, adventure and discoveries in Pursuit will have you claim your very own destiny.
The legends of Mount Pilatus mentioned in this book were taken from the Pilatus official website and other sources. Believe them or not. It is the authors conviction that such legends and myths have originated with some story or other. Do dragon’s exist. Let the reader decide.

My Review:
 A little bit of a slow start, which I understand because the author was easing us in to the story line and giving us many facts and details that all were needed to truly understand the story. All in all quite an enjoyable read once it got going. One any fan of the genre will enjoy spending their time escaping with :)

There are a variety of things going on within this story with four different characters that intermingle with the one main focus which is an amazing book that hold the secrets to finding hidden treasure along with its protector whom is an amazing and magical dragon. Each individual is on pursuit to gain which they seek must solve mysteries, riddles and take a grand adventure to accomplish it all.

I really enjoy how descriptive Jim Murdoch is. Being a HUGE dragon lover myself. I was able to go on an adventurous ride on a magical dragon back and land home safely and with some great memories. 

Overall Rating 3.5

  1. I like books with mythical dragons and such. The Eragon series by Paolini is very good. And Jim's book sounds unique with 3 different time periods set in the novel.
