I have to start of with this review by saying that I'm older than the target audience, even so, this book was still enjoyable for me. This story is very well written and engaging. The characters are believable and Ammon is a character you can really sympathize with as well as the situation he's been thrown into and you really want to see him make it through this ordeal that not many could handle like he has managed to do.
The bonds between dragons and their riders, while not completely unique, are very well written and leave no questions or gaps on how it works. The author's take on what type of dragons exist and what happens to dragons that don't fit that mold is quite interesting and it compels you to read through the book so you can learn more, as well as find out how that will affect Ammon and his dragon. His take on their sentient qualities are also interesting. These qualities start in the egg and they are willing to kill themselves in their shell so they won't bond with a person with a dark heart.
The only issue I had with this story was Ammon's political/arranged marriage to El. It wasn't the marriage itself that bothered me. It was more how El handled it. It could have been because it was so sudden, or because her grandmother had just died only moments before, or even the fact that she just didn't have a choice in the matter, but the way she acted just after the ceremony was so confusing. She did everything she could to keep her distance for an entire month and then after Ammon makes a choice to go to war she gets upset with him for wanting to leave her alone like she seemed to want.Read more ›
It's your standard orphan boy coming of age story. Just like others of its ilk, boy-meets-dragon is pretty much how it starts. Most people would be turned off by it for the simple reason that the premise has been done to death since forever but I have no problems with it as long as it is done right.
What made it good for me is that the author was able to use such cliche materials and still present it in such a way that it doesn't get on your nerves. He not just shoving it down your metaphorical throat. He's giving the story to go on its own pace so you get to enjoy the development process more.
One other thing that I really enjoy is that the book doesn't suffer from Dissociative Identity Disorder. Some authors like to pack so much character POVs in their novels that it's hard to follow the story or to identify with one character. Just when I'm enjoying reading from one view point, it then suddenly shifts to another character leaving me wanting to skip right through it so that I could go to my favorite character's part again. Some people like that but I find it irritating and frustrating.
All in all, it's a great read for everybody. You might get turned off because it seems like its primary for YA readers but if you enjoy classical high fantasy, you'll enjoy this.
thanks fora good story. Looking forward to the next instalment.
Story was cute, and I read to the end, but I won't be continuing on in the series.
The dragons are interesting enough but it is never explained how they came to be with humans which is kind of strange as the bond they have with humanity is a focal point. This is the first book in a series but you can definitely read it standalone. While there are plot threads remaining for the next book most of them are tied up.
I don't know if ill get the next book. While there weren't many things that is disliked there also were not many thing that I did enjoy. Basically this was a good read to pass the time but not something I think I will dwell on. On other thing I think I should mention. Towards the end of a book we a some religion thrown in and hinted at for the next book in the form of a small cross... Some may not have a problem with this but in general it was unnecessary to the story and just irked me the way it is thrown in.
