“The Dragon Warrior and the Princess” is not your usual science fiction; the eternal themes of good conquering the evil, of honor and betrayal are still there, but they are softened by the tones of a new romance, of the most genuine feelings between the people, who shouldn’t by no means experience them. Wonderfully written, kind, romantic and yet a fast paced story with characters you get so emotionally attached to that you just don’t want the book to end. Five stars!
The experiencing of these two characters was so sensitively and skillfully portrayed – the primary reason for my 5* rating – I often felt that I was in full empathic contact with their individual struggles; i.e., their emerging and socially forbidden romantic feelings for each other, and in the case of the warrior his desire to be a more complete person. There’s also plenty of science fiction, several engaging supporting characters, as well as enough plot twists and turns and emergency situations that offer ample opportunity for the author to examine the several themes. Although apparently intended for adults, I heartily recommend this book for young adults as well, and as was noted by another reviewer.
I recommend this book for anyone who has a strong interest in a character’s personal experiencing rather than in the behavioral exploits that are typically found in adventure stories. In this context, I found this story to be of comparable quality to the theme of the Star Trek series: The Next Generation, where the experiencing of the characters takes precedence over the technical gadgetry.
