Review: I received a copy of this book from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for an honest review.
The beginning of this book was a little hard to get into for me. More background information would have been useful, perhaps even a short introduction story. Once I was able to understand the surroundings and setting, it was a much easier read for me and quite enjoyable. I still can't quite visualize how a dragon in this story is supposed to look, whether it is Eastern or Western, or a combination of both, perhaps a drawing would have been nice too. I was always trying to visualise a Western type dragon, but it didn't always fit with the scene.
The characters of Cantor, Bixby and Bridger were all wonderful and easy to empathize with. There weren't enough scenes with Dukmee to get into a relationship with his character very well. I felt more connected to Cantor's old mentors than Dukmee.
The storyline flowed well, and moved quickly enough for me to keep interested. Since this is my introduction book to this author, it was a good read, and I hope to be able to read the next one in this series.
