Get An Editor! This could be a delightful story if a competent editor worked on it prior to publication. It is full of spelling and grammatical errors as well as misplaced words and lapses in continuity. Is this meant to be for adults or children? It sometimes seems aimed at an older readership but in the next page is dumbed down for elementary school readers. Blaine Skye constantly repeats herself both in the same sentence and from page to page, most annoying. The kids seem to live in a state of hyper-excitement too, clapping, cheering, dancing, do they ever settle down and relax? Maybe a few meals containing meat would help or is this world vegan? What is with all the dogmatic rules? No dating, roommates can speak to each other, everyone must do exactly as they are told all the time or dire consequences will result. How is this different from Charlotte's life in the "real" world? I would not recommend this book to my nieces, 9 and 12 years of age nor can I, in good conscious, recommend it to adult readers who are fans of the Harry Potter book. Perhaps a good editor can tighten the story enough to make it hang together but until that happens, it is just a mishmash of unconnected ideas and vague themes and the characters need to be firmed up in the author's mind before it is again presented to the public. There is some fine fantasy fiction available but CHARLOTTE TWEED & THE SCHOOL FOR ORPHANED DRAGONS (Book #1) is not among them. Don't waste your time, money, or Nook memory on this turkey! For an exciting peek into a cohesive alternate universe where magic works and strange happenings abound, dip into the Disc World series by Terry Pratchett or check out Roger Zelazny's Amber series.

I can normally forgive spelling/grammar mistakes as I become engrossed in a story. As others have stated, the details of the story are lacking. When I say details, how the magik happens (even as the powers of the person increase), the rules that the characters have to follow, and the personality/characteristics of the character. At times, it seemed that the personality of the characters abruptly changed and are almost contrary to who they were a few pages ago. One of the things that bothered me, and I have no idea why. In the story things ended up being named "Corridor 1, Corridor 2, Cavern 5, Cavern 6.. etc. Just seem like numerical names really did not add any depth. I I hate to be negative, I feel there is some potential here. I just wish there was more meat to the bones of this story.

The idea of the story is good but unfortunatly still needs a lot of fine tuning. Reading the book felt more like reading the editorial summary, details weren't very well explained, things didnt really connect. I found myself skimming most of the book and knowing wxactly what was going on. The book description also describes th entire book, there's no other important things or endings just what's in the description. I was very disappointed. It's not worth getting the second one. It needs to go through editing some more and have more detail or depth added to it.

Good concept but needs tons of editing. I keep getting distracted by the errors, making it hard to enjoy the story.

Did anyone read and edit this book before publishing? It is riddled with errors, and it is hard to tell if is is the author's immaturity or the main character's that is coming through. Contains some good ideas that could have been well developed. I could not recommend it in it's current form, however; I resented the waste of my reading time.

The story is interesting, the writing not so much. In my opinion, this story isn't really quite ready for publishing.

This is one of the most fascinating and also beautiful books I've read in a long time. Completely spellbinding. It takes us on a journey from one world to another and is not only fun, lively, suspenseful, but filled with incredible wisdom. I recommend it highly.
