Plot centers around Dingo, a dwarf who is the great grandson of Dingo, the Dragon Master who succeeded in roping a young blue dragon. Dingo is far less famous. His job is to guard the vent holes of the cave in which the dwarves of Dropull Mountains live. One day Dingo encounters a human heading toward the cave. The old man urges Dingo to abandon his post and follow him. Reluctantly agreeing to do so, Dingo discovers a dragon wants to lay her eggs in their shaft. He must warn the king.
So the adventure is set for Dingo to somehow convince the dragon to abandon her plan. How will the little dwarf succeed in that monumental task to save his people.? Who is the mysterious old man who suddenly appears to warn them.
Readers who enjoy dragons, magic, dwarves and adventure will enjoy this book. Also makes a good classroom read aloud choice as the chapters are fairly short. Reluctant readers will find the book interesting and appealing .
For any kid that loves adventures and dragon slaying, then this would be a perfect gift for the holidays. Get your kids on this and journey with Dingo, as he tries to help the dwarves stay alive from the monstrous dragon.. dun dun dun....
Can't wait to get my nephew into this and I will read the next book in the series first before passing that along too.
That said, some of the phrasing confused me and I found many instances of passive vs active verbs. This is why I rated it 4 stars and not 5.
Beyond that point though, this was a quick, fun read that I think will capture kids and hold their interest.
Those of us who are following Michael Robb Mathias Jr. (as we now know his full name) are used to his longer epics so it is with great pleasure to discover he is able to created terrific new fantasy characters in a novella format (this book is a quick read 92 page introduction for those who are just meeting the author). The plot is tight and opens the great door of a new series: `Everyone knows that dwarves mostly live underground. In this tale, a dwarf named Dingo, who guards the opening of one of the air vents that feeds them fresh air, is thrust into a high adventure when he has to leave his post to see what Master Zarvin, a fabled great kind old wizard (whom we have met in earlier books), has to show him. It turns out that a dragon (Royal) wants to nest in the air shaft and it is up to Dingo to stop it. The only problem is, Master Zarvin is on the dragon's side. Will Dingo become a dragon slayer, or will he get eaten? Or will he do something else that surprises even him? To find out, you'll just have to read it for yourself?' And it this sort of gleeful attitude that Mathias opens as invitations to follow him in a new series.
There are few writers in the genre of fantasy that can equal the creative mind of M.R. Mathias - now acknowledged as a master in this genre of dragons and dwarves, and magic and spells and all aspects of fantasy. Highly Recommended for Young Adults and adults who long to be young again! Grady Harp, March 15
