    A Darker Droon Book But Still A Good One

    I enjoyed reading this book and I cannot wait to see how the cliff hanger at the end of this book is solved. I have read all of the books in the series and this one leaves the most questions unanswered. Most of them from previous books. I found that, while this book is darker theamed, it needed to be so to move the plot line forward. In the earlier books the main character, Eric, lost his powers and then gained them back. I felt as if he shouldn't have gained them back as soon as he did. I think that this is the reason In the City of Dreams is so much darker. Over all, it is brilliantly written and it moves the plot along toward a solution, but first there will be dark times in Droon.

    Not a good Idea for children with great imaginations to read this volume...

    We have read all your series from 1 - 34 and it has been one fascinating time after another. But,in this episode,and for children who really get into fantasy stories, I find it a grim idea to cause a child to believe the hero or another child will not succeed within a given storyline, especially when all the other episodes turned out with the children as victors. The results of such a thing can be devastating, even in fantasy life. Our society is geared with such negativity, that a winning resolve is necessary for a `child heroic' fantasy character. Did the author ever think of how long it would be before the next story would be published. It's more than a cliff hanger, its a saddening and down spirit a child could be left with at the end of this episode. What about the devastating thoughts that can enter a child's mind about Eric concerning his parents. Children think on such a level. I as a mother, was very disappointed that a story line could go so amuck in the last paragraph of an entire story.
