Dragons ~ Coming of Age ~ Swords & Sorcery
I requested and was granted a code for the Audible version of this book.
I like the characters, and I really enjoy that the dragons and riders have a real feeling relationship, and that they argue and fight rather than getting along all the time. Like family. The description are quite vivid for some of the things, and really made a clear picture. This wasn’t always the case, but in general I enjoyed and could picture the tale that was being presented. She definitely put forth effort!
The wording and writing style felt extremely choppy at first. I couldn’t get into it because it just sounded so odd. It smoothed out a little ways in, but never quite enough for me to be able to get lost in the narrative. I think this was made much more noticeable because it WAS an audible, versus me reading it myself, but I still feel like I would have noticed. I give the book a rating of 3.
Now, the narrator. She just doesn’t match the story, for me. Her tone and emphasis felt all wrong, and I really felt I was being read ‘at’ rather being told a story. Hopefully that makes sense. Her voice is very clear and concise, she has a good tempo, but this story was not the one, I think. I can’t quite figure out what genre she WOULD be good at, but with her voice, I know there’s one that’s perfect for her. 2.5 – 3 Stars.
Overall, this was an okay read. Dragon’s, coming of age, and very interesting relationships between said dragons and their riders.
