This is a great little book about the background of the dragons and the town of Anguis. Especially Talis and how/why he became the dragon he was.
I loved reading the first person accounts of different dragonmasters unfolding the history of what happened before the dragonmaster trilogy. Fun easy read.
Parker is the Dragonmaster at the beginning of these Chronicles. He and several other Dragonmasters have kept these Chronicles. The Chronicles continue the history of the Dragons and the Dragonmasters.Characterization and plotting are good.
Well. In Book 1, we learned about two sisters, one who became immersed in magic, and the other who became paired with a wild dragon. We saw how Talis, the head dragon, reigned over Letum Wood with an iron claw and no mercy. Is their god real, or did he invent it? Why are no dragons allowed to fly, except Talis? Why are the people not allowed to use magic, and why do they hunt for the dragons? Are they dragon servants? The Chronicles flips our paradigm UPSIDE-DOWN. We see what has made Talis who he is. We even see a name which we already learned about in Book 1, a mysterious statesman and mentor.... I am on the edge of my seat, this backstory has given me so much information, has blown my mind, and I can't WAIT to read Dragonmaster 3!!! I am utterly enthralled! Buy this as soon as you finish Book 1! You will see everything with new eyes-- many questions answered, yet the mystery is only deepened!!!!
I will certainly be telling my granddaughter, Emma, all about them. I am thinking my grandson, Austin would love them as well.Thank you again!!
