Wow! This book really has dragons in it. And well I love dragons. And I like how they are portrayed in this book. Reading this book kind of reminded me of my favorite anime Saiunkoku Monogatari (The Tale of The Color Cloud Palace). They’re not the same story but the political structure and Serena being a woman reminded me of the female MC from that anime. The dragon and battle/aspect reminded me of BBC’s Merlin. Again they’re not the same but the show kind of gave me a visual representation of this book, which made reading it more fun.
I enjoyed reading about each character. They were well developed and complex. I like how they played into the story. Although this book left a lot of questions and gave a few answers, I think it was a great introduction to the series. I had a hard time putting it down because I was so eager to find out more and learn more as to what really happened. I’m definitely reading the next one.
