  • Fantastic

    I was enchanted. I don't want to say to much but that there were times I HAD to put the book down because it was too intense. The build up was fantastic and the stories and backstories intertwined beutifully. A wonderful, magical, sorrowful and joyful tail.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Abuse is not love

    It is rare that I give a book 1 star, especially a book I’ve finished reading. I was so excited to read this, given the reviews and the news that Ellen Degeneres has optioned it. What a disappointment. I might have given it 2 or 2.5 stars because I did manage to finish it and it was creative, plus I like the message about destroying nature. However, I cannot condone a story that romanticizes verbal and emotional abuse the way the Dragon berates, belittles, and insults Agnieszka from the moment they meet, especially when the book is targeted to young and impressionable readers. That is not love! Aside from that, I found it rambling & drawn-out. The magical system was non-existent, and Agnieszka was the epitome of a special snowflake Mary Sue. There was no character development, nor did I care for either of the main characters. I won’t read another book by this author.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Delightful Fairytale

    The novel has an abundance of charm to draw you into the story. It reminded me of the fairytales I read as a child, full of wonder at the adventure to be had in the forest. The mystery of the Wood is revealed slowly, and misunderstood except by a girl who belongs there.

  • Immaculately woven story like a fine spell.

    The dragon takes a new girl every 10 years. He does harm them but they always leave the small valley after their service to him. It is time the protector to take a new servant. It deserved the Hugo award that it won.

  • Fresh Fantasy

    
She of the Temeraire dragon books (which started as fun and different but ground along for far too long). This is fantasy of the low variety (no goblins, dwarves etc.) set in a medieval Russian/Eastern European type setting. An enjoyable yarn with a decent amount of peril. Her voice is very different to the largely male dominated fantasy genre and this book is all the better for it. If I have a criticism, I would say it is a little anti-climactic. A great read nonetheless.

    Thanks for your feedback!
