I am reading a book called Mysteries of Cove, Fires of Invention by J. Scott Savage. The main/major character in this book is Trenton Coleman. Some of the other characters in this book are Simoni, Kallista Babbage, Angus, Marshal Darrow, Ray, Chancellor Lusk, and Clyde. Simoni is the only minor character unlike Kallista Babbage and Trenton’s dad who are both the static/flat characters. Angus is surprisingly the only dynamic/round character in this book. There is only one character who is the protagonist and that’s Marshal Darrow. Last but not least, you could say that Ray and Trenton’s mom are the antagonist characters.
The main character Trenton Coleman, is trying to change Simoni and Kallista’s point of view. Trenton has been known as someone who doesn’t do anything other than homework and invent/create things. He wants people to think of him as someone who is smart and inventive. He especially wants Simoni and Kallista to think he cute. Trenton already knows that Simoni likes him because at the beginning of this book he built her a swing and she absolutely loved it. Now Trenton is trying to win over Kallista by helping her create a dragon. They’re almost finished and he has almost changed Kallista’s point of view as well. He hopes that nothing will go wrong.
There is only one nemesis in this book and his name is Chancellor Lusk. He has ruined Trenton and Kallista’s fire breathing mechanical dragon multiple times and has even almost completely wrecked it. He has now let Trenton and Kallista finish their dragon just so that he can steal it and and destroy the entire city of Cove. He hopes to soon be the ruler of the city and all of the people for eternity. So far, he has become unbeatable in his horrifying plan. Chancellor has two sidekicks. The book doesn’t give specific names but Chancellor treats them as if they’re his henchmen. There is a sidekick in this book that is not one of Chancellor’s. Clyde is the sidekick. He is one of Trenton’s best friends.
