I love fantasy/sci-fi, and I'm happy to add this book to my list of favorites. I've read it twice now, actually. I was surprised to find myself falling for characters whom I initially overlooked. I always read quickly, but rarely miss anything. However, with Dragon Talker, I couldn't help but page back to better see the full picture Anderson subtly paints throughout his novel. The origins story is especially captivating, answering enough questions to submerge the reader into a world where dragon, mage, and human coexist, but not so revealing as to satisfy one's curiosity of what's to come.

Take a weekend off and lose yourself in Anderson's world. You'll thank yourself on Monday.

This was a pleasant read once I got used to all of the typos and the kindle conversion problems. It was a bit too simplistic a story to be considered riveting. About a third of the way in I realized this was headed toward a series in which case I would have expected more in depth character development, to include the dragons and more emphasis on some goal that had to be reached. At this point the story lacked real definition primarily because the characters were too flat or to mysterious. For example, one of the mages appears to be developing a distaste for mage history but other than the story told by one character to his son there is no real understanding of how there came to be mages, dragons, humans and earth magic. And just as I was wondering how mages came into existance, and if any were females, there appears a female who may be a mage who has parents......I see a lot of potential elements in the story . I will read the next one if I remember to look for it but won't be waiting with bated breath for the next in the series.

Steve Anderson's Dragon Talker is a great read. The story develops as Yuri becomes the Dragon Talker for the Village of Mandan. Yuri is brand new to the job and there are many spins to the story. Each village has it's own dragon who speaks only to the Dragon Talker. Conflict arises as a mage fights for control of the village and the dragons. The story is very creative and drew me in almost immediately. I had no idea where the storyline was headed so it kept me very engaged. This book is out of my typical genre, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect from the book. As it turned out, this book is quite a page turner and I didn't want to put the book down. I felt very connected to not only Yuri, but to all the other characters (including the dragon). I would definitely recommend this book.

This book reads like a light fantasy, though it is not very humorous. There is some fighting and death, but it is not the main element. It reads a bit like an enjoyable parable. Appropriate for most ages, though the under 11 crowd might find it a bit too bloody. No cursing or sex that I noticed. So why not a five, it needed some other element to pull it up to five, a romance, or more world exploring, or more humor, etc. I recommend it, and hope the author will be taking the characters out into pages again.

Perhaps the best treatment of human - dragon relationships since Ursula K LeGuin's Wizard of Earthsea series. A great read with deep meaning. More accessible than LeGuin. If you liked Ged and Wizard of Earthsea you will love the Dragon Talker! Looking forward to more - a full blown series I hope!

This is a fun look at humans, Mages, and Dragons. Yurt is forced into the position of Dragon talker. Yurt goes in search of instructions on how to be a talker and as he travels we learn the legends of the his world. We also learn more of Yuri's purpose. I am looking forward to book#2.

Ok so you might understand the discrepancy between the headline and the stars that I have given this book, if you will stick with me I will explain this. So lets start off with the negative first. I have one complaint it is the editing of this book, at times I found it hard to fallow the book because of this. Yet I love this book because of the characters they are very interesting and well rounded. The lore of the dragons in this book is unique and don't let the title of this book 'Dragon Talker' fool you these dragons do not talk in the traditional ways that we have seen in other books while keeping the dragons inelegant and they have developed a quirky since of humor. This is a fast paced fun book that will leave you wanting for the next book.

Wow, I really, really liked this story. For some reason I had gotten it into my head that this was going to be a more childish story. Well, I was wrong. This book had a surprising amount of depth to it. Mr. Anderson has a talent for writing that is for certain sure. The characters were relatable and intelligent. The plot was believable and interesting. And the dragons! I love dragons, and Samora the dragon is most definitely one of the most interesting dragons I've had the pleasure of reading about. Also, the world building was well done and the humor was pretty freakin' spot on. I may have had to quiet an outburst of laughter or two. :D There is plenty of action, but that isn't the whole point, which made a fairly balanced story. No love triangle! Thank you, thank you for that. I could keep listing things, but that would get tedious. :P Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the fantasy genre. I can hardly wait to read the next one! I must know what happens next!

Only complaint : better editing. It's a harsh *snap back to reality* moment when you run across these rather easily avoided spelling and grammar errors. Seriously, this book deserves to have its insides be technically perfect so it matches the quality of this rather remarkable story.

First novel too? Seriously impressed.

More books like this on the shelf please. :D
