I’m listening to this book. The characters are so real and I like the way the different characters are developed in parallel. I listen to this while I commute and I hate to leave the car.

Just okay

I liked this story well enough to finish it, but not enough to delve into the next book. Even in a fantasy story, I found it a bit unbelievable, and was disappointed in the ending.

Great read

Great book! I had already read the network series and thoroughly enjoyed it so decided to try this one and enjoyed it so much I bought the next one in the series and started reading it right away.

Very entertaining, the female version of Harry Potter

I like dragons and magic and such. Can’t wait for more in the series


Great discovery of a new author, series, and set of characters. Katie Cross built an engaging world (honestly, she had me at dragons) that unfolds with complexity over time. I've just finished the trilogy and here are some thoughts: - The Dragonmaster Trilogy has a strong story arc that moves smoothly throughout the books. - There are DRAGONS! Naturally, there are also witches, magic, and the occasional troll. The world also boasts a few elusive goddesses, each tied to natural features (forest, mountains, desert, ocean). - Various regions hold different views of "appropriate" magic resulting in intrigue, politics, and battles. - The series is perfectly appropriate for fantasy fans including young adult and young-at-heart. The language is clean. Within the storyline, there is some reference to the torturing of witches, but limited detail; in the last book, an assault (rape) is mentioned with little direct description.Fast, FUN reads.
