The Dragon Tax (The Dragon Tax Saga) (Volume 1)
Top customer reviews
The writing is smooth and reads quickly. Definitely a great summer escape.
From the beginning the writing style was more reminiscent of a fantasy aimed at middle grade readers right up until the advent of some very mild sexytimes. There wasn't a ton of convoluted angsting over ethical or emotional issues but they were there, and the author clearly put some thought into the practical consequences of her character's problems. Not only did this add humor, but it revealed personalities without a bunch of info-dumping. While many of the major issues were resolved by the end, it's clear that there is more to come. Much as I loathe crappee grammar, the price of book two was right enough that I ordered it. I just hope the author or her publisher invests in a decent copy editor.
Sounds awesome. Not quite sure how anybody could manage to cross two blades above their head ^and^ have them pointed in the same direction ^and^ be a threat. <sigh>
The premise was quirky. But it got off to a bad start when the dragonslayer heroine thought about how difficult it must be to dust the antechamber to the throne room. Not because it was bad writing in itself. But because it wasn't used to help define the character or the situation. There was no follow through. Why was it important to the story?
Keller brings you quickly into a world that feels very familiar in spite of the dragons and magic, and paints a believable hero whose wits and fighting skills are balanced by respect for human life. Book covers often promise and can’t deliver, but “Dragon Tax” was exactly what it seemed to be: a fun adventure!
Note—Sex is referred to once without description but the context may not be suitable for adolescents. Some violence is part of the story but is handled reasonably.
