The author has created an intriguing concept with a lot of possibilities for future books. Even with a short span, I was happily surprised to find that she not only gives the reader a fairly good picture of Nickolas and his family life, but also gives us a fair amoint of insight into the village/comunity he lives in. SPOILER ALERT
*** I found myself wanting to know more - how long has the curse been going on? Was the dragon one of Nickolas' ancestors? Are there a lot of dragon mountains in the book's world? Do other villages/cities/countries shun the villagers because of their disreputable past? Is everyone in the village cursed, or is it just Nickolas and his family? FYI, the father's overview had me picturing a group of (somewhat) reformed Sawney Bean descendants...shudder (but in a good shudder way).
I think there are a lot of possibilities for the author to create a solid series of books based.on what she has started here. My only complaint was that I wanted to know more - father telling some more about their former dastardly deeds, or have villagers provide juicy tidbits about the dragon and the wealth they harvest from "under its scales". I also wouldn't have said no to having the dragon keep Nickolas down a little longer to give more of his (dragon's) background and abilities.
Bottom line,very interesting story that works well on its own, but that hopefully will expand and grow in future stories about Nickolas' life and actions.
