The anatomy, social and biological requirements, etc of the dragons was incredibly well thought out and detailed. The reader, along with Delno, learns a lot about dragons, how to be a good person, and even a little basic physics (though it's not termed that of course). I enjoyed that....or I did after I stopped waiting for it to turn into an action adventure along the lines of Eragon and accepted that Delno and Geneva's relatively peaceful daily life was the story. There was a little adventure in the last 20% of the book, but I thought it almost felt tacked on. Delno had an answer to every challenge, everything went according to plan, and with one notable exception he only met trustworthy friends who were more than willing to defer to his authority. There was never any sense that he was even taxed by anything he encountered. He was a little too perfect in every way for that. Oddly, though, since I had by that time decided that his actions were important more as an example of a moral existence than as a series of events I wasn't too bothered by his glittering perfection.
The writing was very descriptive. If you enjoy your fantasy a little more on the philosophical side this is the book for you. If you're looking for a heart stopping grand adventure this one might present a bit of a challenge.
J.D. Hallowell's Dragon Fate!
Dragon Fate is a new take on the dragon rider fantasy stories. Not as gritty as say Bazil Broketail but more enjoyable (in my opinion) than Pern (before you fuss at me, know that I love Anne McCaffery. I just didn't particularly like her Pern books. I enjoyed her Tower and Hive books much more.).The interplay between Delno and Geneva is truly what drives this book and keeps it from dragging.
This is a fantasy that is centered around the growth of the main characters. The external conflicts serve to foster and illustrate that growth. I found all the characters to be engaging and surprisingly not predictable. I have to admit to being completely sure that one of the first characters that you met that is central to Delno was going to betray him at some point because isn't that what happens in every fantasy book ever? I was pleasantly surprised when he didn't betray the main character but have a sneaky suspicion that the author is just setting you up for a greater betrayal in later books.
The characters are written in such a way that you truly do care for them (even the villain...okay maybe not the villain but definitely his dragon). The plot twist toward the end of the book shouldn't have surprised me but it did.Read more ›
