Dragon shape shifters. Fierce princesses. Evil Princes. Magic. Fate. Hidden destinies revealed. Epic battles. Pygmies. Romance. Betrayal. All this and so much more can be found within the pages of this sweeping fantasy tale. Once you start, you won't want to stop.
I love all of the characters in this book. I love the way Aranya struggled to learn how to be a dragon after the first time she shifted. I love the fierce and yet fragile Zuziana. I love conflicted Yolathion, struggling between duty and honor and matters of the heart. I love the warrior monk Ri'arion, who starts out as one kind of man, only to reveal many deep layers beneath his stoic exterior. I even love the endlessly beautiful and terrible and fascinating world of islands and mountains and the vaporous cloudlands. I love dragonshifter books and this is one of the best I've read in a long time.
My only complaint is that the story drags a bit in the middle. I think it could have been well served to have certain parts removed to make it a tighter story. But aside from that mid-story slump, Aranya is a novel full of passion and adventure. The battles between dragon and dragonships are particularly breathtaking and told in perfect detail.
This is an excellent book. If you love dragons and dragonshifters as much as I do, and if you want to be swept away on an epic fantasy adventure, then I would highly recommend Aranya.
I had high hopes for this but I just could not get over the characters
