First of all, thank you Booktasters for being asking me for the book review and top of that for being so patient with me, I know I have been so late in reading and reviewing the book ‘Rainbow Crystal: The Special Boy Who Could’ by Samantha Caprio- Negret. Nevertheless, I truly believe it is always better late than never. So here I am with my review of a wonderful read.

About Book

The Special Boy Who Could: A Children's Fantasy Book (Rainbow Crystal 2) by [Samantha Caprio-Negret]
Book Cover

Seraphina, Ava, and Enzo become instant best buddies who not only end up sharing a unique bond, but all share an important role with helping to save Raiven. It’s up to the three of them to unravel the mystery of the Special Boy Who Could – before Raiven and the rainbow crystal are doomed forever.

Meanwhile, the three learn about the evil sorcerer Abigor’s malicious plan of revenge to take over all of the land and power in Raiven. Enzo discovers he is the chosen one on this mission with a unique connection to the magical world. A dark secret about his past, which has been hidden from him comes to the surface, which has to do with Abigor and his evil plan. Enzo, along with Seraphina and Ava, journey to fight Abigor and his two blood-sucking gargoyles to return the powerful rainbow crystal to the fallen and dying Wizard Arbit Maximus before it’s too late. Because if the powerful wizard dies, who will take his place and rule all the realms in Raiven?

More secrets, hidden realms, and mystical and mythical characters present themselves in this adventurous, magical story about true friendship, courage, and hope. New fairies and dragons leap along for the ride who help Seraphina, Ava, and Enzo to fight darkness. They come to find out that they’re not the only ones guiding them, but so is Seraphina’s best friend from her past who died, Josie Lee. Her presence proves to always still be around. But even Josie Lee has grown in power on the other side… from spirit guide to luminescent angel.

Mainly, she’s a busy bee being a wife and mother to two children, Bella and Lorenzo. She enjoys reading, watching movies, working out, blogging, spending quality time with good friends, and/or traveling whenever she can find extra time (usually one of those activities accompanies a cup of coffee or glass of wine), minus the working out part. However, there are always exceptions. Samantha has two bulldogs (Bleu and Buster), one white, fluffy cat named Gracie, who is the princess of the castle, a new kitty named Marlo Brando, and a bunch of exotic fish corals, and albino iguanas. She has a lot of love, abundance, and activity around her; she feels blessed — and even sometimes stressed — every day for it all.

My Review

The book ‘The Special Boy Who Could” By Samantha Caprio-Negret constitutes 18 chapters. In dazzling adventure, 12-year-old Seraphina and her friend Ava become friends with ‘a special-needs boy, Enzo; following this, Seraphina gets a dream from Wizard Arbit Maximus and learns that the magical realm of Raiven needs her yet again, but this time she is not “The chosen one” She must find the “Special Boy Who Could,” meanwhile an evil sorcerer, Abigor threatens destruction to the world of Earth and the Realm of Raiven!

Do they have what it takes, it all depends on “The Special Boy Who Could”!

The narration of the tale by the author is very intriguing that kept me hooked till the end; also, the flawless pitch of the language with the tinge of humor will make you feel every scene passing by in front of your eyes.

I highly recommend the amazing book to all the fantasy lovers who are ready to break all the boundaries to open the door of mysteries and magic. Trust me, this book has everything they are looking for.

Hit Points

The special bond of three friends is the USP of this fantasy tale. Along with this, there are few more reasons I like about this book. First, it takes an awesome twist into the world of fantasy, encompassing many details. I also think that it raises the level of alert about people with disabilities because it teaches those individuals to empower themselves and muster up some courage to face the world head-on! It teaches people that disabilities don’t hold people back. It’s thoughts of those around you that do. The plot is also very well made; all 18 chapters of the book are truly worth the effort!

Second, this book because it incorporates some humor that any reader could easily pick up on, the language is pretty good, but some words may be hard to understand for young readers!

Miss Points

I have realized that the fantasy contents of this book are a bit “out there,” but that’s what fantasy is all about! So, all I advise you to do is keep this detail in mind as you are taking in the book, and let your imagination guide you into the wonderful world of Raiven!

So don’t wait much grab your copy soon and get ready to ride on the fantasy world with three buddies.

You can get the book from the Amazon link.
