    Eh.. Not the best book ever

    I was really hopeful about this book but it really dissapointed me. The story line was choppy. The characters were not very well developed. And the author just p facts every once and a while adding odds and ends to the story that are in no order whatsoever. I do not recommend this book to anyone.

After i finished this book I couldn't wait to get my hands on the other two! I also hear you have a fourth one out. Way to go i hope you never stop writing them they are wonderful and full of outstanding people and the way every thing went so good together. Thank you for the experice I hope to hear about more books like yours.

    Debateable

    This book left you always hanging on the edge of your seat, it soaked up every leisure hour until finished. It was also quite confusing at some points, and the narrator/author (not the characters at that point) lied to the audience several times. What good is a book when the writer betrays your trust in their words and implication? The book pissed me off; I doubt I will ever read the remainder of the Dragon Nimbus series.

    Outstanding

    This book has alot of wonderfully descripted chapters which do not include your traditional fire-breathing dragons terrorizing brave knights, which is good because dragons are too beautiful to be portrayed as savage beasts. Actually, there are no knights in this book. There is a witchwoman and a magician, however, as well as a wolf- which was a plus for me. By the end of the book you will be attatched to all of them. You will find it very difficult to put this one down. Simply, there are too many words that could describe this book, but it's highly recommended to those looking for a good magical adventure. 'The Glass Dragon' is just the book I was looking for.

    Wow. Just wow.

    This is one of the most original dragon book I've seen since Anne McCaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern! Go Mrs(ms?)Radford! WOOOO!! The Glass Dragon takes dragon hides to a new level, and Krej is just so evil! I've yet to read the second and third ones in this so far magnificent series, but I can't wait! Keep it up! I'm cheering for you!

    Great Book

    I'm 15 and I must say this is one of the best books I've read. I was able to visualize what was going on and most books don't do that for me!

    Wonderful

    The Glass Dragon was one of Irene's best stories. She made me picture everything that was happening in the story. I'd recomend this book to any fantasy reader.
