Although this is a well written novel, it is fairly predictable in its plot line and characters. It seems to rush over significant events while dwelling on seemingly unimportant details such as location, clothing, etc. However, in spite of this, it is a nice, quick read, good to take on a plane or while waiting in line.

I read this book for the first time and really enjoyed it.

Charlotte Bronte was a mastermind, and while her first novel was not as good as Jane Eyre, it was still an enjoyable read. It is nice to see how she developed as an author.

This book was so good. It is interesting to see how Brotne started out her wonderful career. I would recommend this novel to all.

She walked in. She was not a human or dragon, but a Nyraya. Nyraya were a bit like humans, but they had magical powers. She could control water elements. That was her power. "Dragons, huh?" She said. "Okay then!"

THis books was rather boring because it was basically all descriptions of characters and the main character is a very likable one and neither is the girl he falls in love with I think Bronte had a good idea for a story then got tired after all her character descriptions and decided to slcak off on the rest of the book but ill give her credit it was her very first book and was kinda good in a weird way i am stil a charlotte bronte fan no matter what
