A regular day of carrying pig slop on the Icelandic dragon farm turns terrifying when twelve-year-old Lenna walks in on the old farm caretaker, Brugda, summoning up a prophetic vision of a dark future. Lenna is sent to visit the farm’s owner, deadly quiet Lady Joukka Pelata. She reveals tantalizing glimpses of the girl’s past and the possibilities for her future, hinting at how important she could become.

So, this has a pretty good storyline and plot. Dont be thrown off by the scant overview/description. Lenna lives on an Icelandic farm with another girl. The other girl can talk to dragons, but Lenna can't. Lenna is also frustrated about the other person she lives with, who hits her if Lenna does wrong.In the beginning, dragons are commonplace at the farm. The majority of the book does not even concern dragons, due to a magical change. There are a few "powers of magic" in the world. They collect magic from the world, and when they have enough, they change the world according to their will. Electricity was attributed to this, as well as machinery such as airplanes. Also hidden in the world are Old Ones, who are thousands of years old. If somebody can do magic, they are restricted to a certain branch of magic. Not Lenna. She also can see magic, unlike 99% of the population (she doesn't know this until later in the book, however). The story develops at a good pace, and it keeps you reading. There are several surprises right in a row; it will not take you too long to read the 465 or so pages in the book. Occasional humor is ever present, and the story never gets dry or old. The reason I took a star off is because there are a couple of words that are either spelled wrong, or the character has a heavy accent. Also, there are several instances where a word is repeated twice twice in a row, like that. I figure that the author either did it for emphasis and forgot the commas, or it was simply a true typo. Overall this is a book well worth reading, and come on--how often do you get to follow a series for free??!!
