Besides his interest in science, Terry's uncle was also interested in dragons, and that interest leads Terry into this adventure.
I enjoyed this novel. I'm happy to highly recommend it to readers from ten or eleven years old and up. Parents who want to encourage scientific interest in their sixth graders and older might want to suggest this novel, but for the younger ages I'd suggest parents read it first, because there are some slighty suggestive passages.
The main character has the best of both worlds. In fact it's so easy for him that you begin to hope for the bad guy to win. He's a theoretical nuclear physicist. He inherits 2 million dollars. He has his own dragon who turns out to be the most rare and powerful type of dragon. He learns magic quicker than anyone else. He is better at magic then everyone else. He is the chosen one who was foretold! He has instant success with women. What else can he possibly need? Flying? Well he gets that too.
Not worth .99 cents.
Question to all SF/Fantasy writers: Why do you pick names for your characters that are difficult to remember (let alone pronounce)? Why not give the good guys names that begin with the letter "B" or "C", and the bad guys "X's or "Z's"? Maybe not quite that rigid, but I think you get my point.
Dragonverse is a fantasy showing clear, methodical planning built upon a solid foundation of thought. I found the dragon, Glahmelia, especially appealing though her mind-linked human, Terry, was rather too average for me to become attached in any meaningful way. I prefer my protagonist with some kind of special spark or quirk but I can understand where many might enjoy the "average Joe" who finds himself an alternative world peopled with Elves, ogres and dragons quite fascinating. I would certainly rate "Dragonverse" under the enjoyable category, as it is a book with which a lover of fantasy could be satisfied.
