Review by: Alysa H on June 30, 2013 :
I've noticed (I'm sure I'm not the only one) that the best books are often unclassifiable, and this book is no exception. It's a love story, of course, and also dystopian post-apocalypse sci-fi, and also a southern pastoral. Above all, it's a coming-of-age story. Plus, dragons.

This book is just amazing. The world-building, the character building, the uses of language, the literary allusions, the way everything unfolds. I could not put it down and stayed up way too late finishing it, only to be sorry that it was over.

Review by: James Jaques on Nov. 06, 2011 :
Except for the fact that this book is heavily gay in content (I am not gay), this book has a well executed plot. The author is extremely good at making word pictures of primitive rural life. If you do not mind reading about the gay life, I recommend it as a good read.
