I'm not an experienced fantasy reader, with only a couple of books behind me, but for me this was the best fantasy I've read so far.
I feel with the characters and want to know more as the book progresses. The story is captivating from page 1 all the way to the last page.
Best Dragon Series I read in a long time (I'm currently at book 6). New people and worlds are explored as the story progresses and it doesn't get boring. I feel it's much more interesting than Novik's recent books in the Temeraire series.
This was a real treat. For me this was the best book in the trilogy. Fun characters and dialogue. Since I've read some of John's other books I was intrigued that the character Tathan from The Willden Trilogy appears in this book.
