All mostly very enjoyable. My only moan is that some passages are a bit tedious: it’s like you just really want the pace to keep going but instead it slows right down to tell you what someone is thinking, or some long winded conversation, right in the middle of a load of fast moving chaos that you want to be enjoying in a fast pace way. I admit that i only felt like that a few times, so it’s not like the book is like that all the way through, and that’s probably why those few passages stand out so much as the rest of it is really on a good pace throughout.
So, yeah, that’s my only moan. Other than that, i really enjoyed it and i’m looking forward to more, and there’s certainly plenty more books in this series. Rachel really has done something wonderful with dragons in this dragon centric story, placing them in a dystopian capitalist environment as totally psychopathic creatures, essentially, the ultimate capitalists. And the dragon clans’ internal and external politics that get explored are really good.
Basically, everything you wanted to know about dragons but were too afraid to ask. Now doesn’t that sound like fun?
