Dragons and humans used to work in harmony, but human greed has soured this relationship. Now, a storm is brewing, one which could mean the end of mankind. Enter Kallon and Riza , the former is the heir to the head council position of the dragons in self imposed exile and the other is a girl on the run from a village too small for the ideas in her head. Together, they may be able to keep the world from tearing itself to pieces.

Oh Redheart, how I wanted to like you more. You had dragons and a grand quest to save the world from destruction, you had a heroine outcast who was brave enough to strike out in the world along, you had a history that could have proved intricate and well-planned, and you failed to deliver. I wish it weren’t so.

Riza had all the makings of a grand heroine. Instead, she turned out to be a girl who really just couldn’t shut up. She not only annoyed the dragons around her, she annoyed me as well. Besides her initial initiative in leaving a village that wasn’t meant for her, Riza mostly played the part of the maiden in constant (I’m serious about constant) distress.

The dragons didn’t have as much depth as I might have wished. There was a hint at some history, but I didn’t feel like it was as fleshed out as it could have been (same thing with the history of the world in general). I was expecting an epic, and I think I instead got an epic-light, which was unfortunately not what I wanted at all.

I am sorry that I can not recommend this dragon book to you. I will keep reading and searching though.

Star Rating: 2.5/5.0

Disappointed to hear you didn't like it that much. I'm reading it now, but I haven't gotten that far.


Oh, that's too bad! I hadn't seen it before this, but liked the description. Too bad it didn't have more depth-- maybe I'll keep it in mind for those moments where all I want is fluff!


@Laura Yah the description seemed pretty awesome >.> and I definitely wasn't looking for fluff when I read it heh~~
