    Unusual and Fascinating

    I've been reading fantasy stories for many years, and it's not often I come across something which really feels new. Draykon does. What's more it's extremely well written. I don't want to give spoilers, so I'll just say that the book centres around a shy young heroine and that (unsurprisingly, given the name) a dragon turns up. There's also a totally unexpected twist at the end. The great thing about this story is the feeling all the way through that there is a lot going on under the surface, some of it threatening, some not. Odd things happen and you think "Uh-oh, that's not good," but English parks it and carries on the story, leaving an undercurrent of hidden menace. Then the menacing threads start to come together and the tension ramps. She does something similar with the mundane (for them) features of their world. There's a part of the world in perpetual daylight and another part in perpetual night. The sense is that this is just accepted as perfectly normal by the people living there, so why would anybody comment on it. So little bits of information appear from time to time, and there clearly is a reason for it, but it remains mysterious for the reader. There's clearly more to this world than just a surface (even before the events of the story make things more complicated). This sort of approach continues in the characterisations, so the main characters all seem to have past lives, obliquely referred to; sometimes mundane, often seemingly complicated or mysterious. They don't give that common impression of having just sprung fully formed at page one. This makes them feel more rounded and more interesting. As the first book of a series, this novel is gets its shape right, I think: enough plot threads come together to make it a satisfying read in itself, but there are enough puzzles remaining (not to mention that final plot twist) that you want to see what happens next, in book 2. I guess the best summary would be to say that, having finished the book today, I have already ordered the second in the series.

    The story is easy going with a lot of depth. The characters are interlating with each other.

    The book is easy to read and have plenty of content. The end was a surprise and made you wonder what will be next.
