A written masterpiece, this book is complex, has many different parts to the story, and a bit of romance and drama. It is a very good storyline and will have you caught in it, even though the first chapters may be confusing. Some of the characters are good and evil, and you will be picking sides as if the story was real. I am very sarisfied and I cant wait to read the second one.

This was a good book. The story is more of the political side with how their dragons became enslaved...and how they start to fight back. But first you have to deal with all the Royalty and who is number one.im excited to read book 2, but dont know if i will spend $8 or go to library tomorrow for books 2&3.

My only complaint with this book is that I started reading it before the third book in the trilogy was released. I quickly read the first two and am now stuck waiting for the third. Extremely good read, I would highly recommend.

This story is almost reminiscent of the Song of Fire and Ice by George R.R. Martin, though it gets to the point quickly, and isn't as vast in scope. The author's prose is easy, and flows quickly. First, this is a good book. I voraciously read through this in a day, and was a little sad that I couldn't download the next in the series, and have to wait. I had learned of this from John Scalzi's blog, Whatever, and he has yet to steer me wrong on his mentions. To the book. The characters want to come to life, but are too much a tool of the plot to really grab my empathy. But each has their own voice and personality, but not a lot of anima. That was the first thing that grabbed me, was I wasn't rooting for any character, they all had their faults, and not a one of them would I call friend if I were to meet them in Real life. Then you meet Snow. Deas does a very good job scratching the surface of what could be a very alien mind, with a, draconian, personality. Pun intended. This is a great read, and the series has a lot of promise. Not a wasted word, or Red Herrings to gum up the works, just a good story from a new author. Recommended.
