I recommend this book to anyone who likes fantasy books.
The dialogue is snappy and amusing, and the descriptions are well-done, especially the beautiful visions of the dragons' seas, prior to their draining by Civet.
This book has excelent character development, and breathtaking discriptions, as well as realistic action scenes.
Highly creative story, seems like a great setup to an intresting series, although not a lot happens in this first book.Published 17 months ago by Stephen D Hall
