THE DRAGON BONE FLUTE is an enchanting story that is appropriate for all ages. Young Elzibeth is known as a slacker in her village, but her excuse is that she is so easily distracted by her love of music. Three bullies steal her flute and tell her she must spend the night in the Dragon's Cave to get her flute back. Elzibeth's experience in the cave ultimately unleashes the magic of the dragon as well as a quiet inner-strength that helps her deal with the bullies and her future trials.

This novella was beautifully written. I immediately felt drawn to Elzibeth. I experienced her anger, her sense of betrayal, her joy, and her sorrow. My compliments and thanks to Mr. Gallowglas for this touching story.

I love how very little of the magic making was explained. I wan't my magic to be magical, when the characters are awed, I am awed. This simple tale has the potential for a greater world of exploration, while being self contained. A hard feat to pull off. This was a fantastic read thank you M. Todd Gallowglas.

M. Todd Gallowglas definitely has a way with words. His stories are visually stunning, his language colorful and detailed, and his ability to weave a lush tale is truly remarkable. Bone Flute is easily enjoyable by the young and young of heart, adults and children alike. This is, without a doubt, a page turner.

This very short novella was an absolute wonderful journey!
In just these few pages, the author gives you characters that are so easy to relate to and so easy to care for. Magic, action, and real emotions - what more could you be seeking?! My next read is going to be more from Gallowglas - I'm praying that I'm just as enchanted. (I wish there were more adventures with these characters - I honestly want to know more about them [to the author: hint, hint...?!])

I managed to pick this up free for the kindle, but it is EASILY worth the buck it's usually listed for - buy it.

(Yes, as at least one reviewer pointed out, there are some typos, etc in the text. I was caught up and engaged with the story, so the few errors that presented themselves were noted, but not annoying. I've read some books that were actually hard to read because of poor editing. This was not one of them - the story is TOO GOOD.)

The Dragon Bone Flute by M. Todd Gallagher is one of those books that pulls you right into the story. From the very first sentence, you had a strong sense of the main character, her strengths and weaknesses, her dreams and aspirations. What you don't receive immediately is a sense of her special talent and what it all means- that comes later, as it should in a tale of self-discovery. Although this is probably a YA level story, it is very mature in its handling of choices, unique spiritual gifts and consequences. It is beautifully written and some of the scenes are almost visual. I am thinking in particular of one scene in the tavern where the heroine's talent creates a living spell around her audience- reading that scene made this reader feel as though she were also one of the villagers in the tavern that night.

This is the first work by this author that I have read, and I was impressed. There is an understated feel to the first person narration that I like. It adds to the impression that the protagonist could actually have experienced the events. I was also grateful for the first person point of view because there were a couple of places I used it to reassure myself that Elzibeth survived an encounter.

I like this kind of fantasy where the characters feel like real people and each page produces action, situations, and descriptions that *almost* fit what we understand from our world. There are big things that we don't see around us every day, like dragons and knights in armor, but there are little ones that sneak up on us as we're reading that underline the fact that we're in another world: kids are present in taverns because it's the place people congregate, people have to wait a whole year for manufactured goods because the peddlers were snowed out. You get the picture. And that's one of the nicest surprises I found in this book. The pictures in my head seemed to put themselves together as the story flowed, much like they were helped along by the magic of the flute.

The new edition has very few typos.

This is the second book by this author that I've read (the first being "Halloween Jack and the Devil's Gate" ). And although shorter stories are not my preference, I really enjoyed this novella.

Almost lyrical in his writing, he tells a good tale and transports you into the world of his imagination. Suitable for any age group. Sometimes a little bit dark, but always riveting, his storytelling makes you look forward to his next tale.

I almost docked a star for poor proofreading, but just didn't have the heart; it was that pleasing to read even with the wrong words here and there.

The Dragon Bone Flute is the story of a peasant girl named Elzibeth who loves to play the flute. When her flute is broken by a group of bullies, she painstakingly carves a new one from the bone of a dragon's toe. Soon, she discovers that there is wondrous magic in her music when she plays the flute. Does the magic come from the dragon's bone itself, or from the love and courage Elzibeth pours into making her music? Perhaps both.

Overall, this is a charming novella about how the simple magics of music and love can help us overcome our hatreds, fears, and pains. The words of the story resonate with a magic of their own as the ghostly strains of Elzibeth's music spring audibly to life in the reader's mind. The ending is a bit weak, but the story as a whole is well worth the 99-cent price tag.
