"'Dragon Time' is a beautifully told
tale. It's easy to feel empathy for Katja; she has just enough flaws
that we can love her, and not so many that we lose respect for her. The
play of plot and emotion was especially lovely; the ending satisfies
completely, and the love in the story positively shines. While the story
has ancient treaties, magician-clockmakers, and, of course,
dragons--everything needed for a good fantasy story--it's the love that
stands out the most. It's a story I'll go back to time and time
