From as far back as I can remember, I have always had a feeling that Dragons are real. When you look at a wide sky there is a glimpse from the corner of your eye which must surely be a Dragon whisking past. I always regarded the stories of monstrous fierce Dragons as being completely wrong and I detested stories of St George and his dragon killing tendencies.
When I was still a small child my grandfather gave me a copy of Kenneth Grahame's The Reluctant Dragon. It made complete sense to me - a Dragon living in a secluded cave, wanting only peace and quiet to write poetry.

This was a good book, I liked the story line, but it the writing style could of used work. At times it was hard to tell who was talking. But I still liked it.

This is the first book of a series of 6 books. I bought and read all 6 books. This first book was engaging and held a great deal of promise for a topnotch series, but as each book that followed was read, it became clearer that the author has great potential which was unfulfilled in this series. The plot is typical of many fantasy books: unknown child suddenly is found to be the promised savior and the story catalogs her growth into her powers and the allies she makes along the way, and concludes as expected. What sets apart series like this are how well the subplots and characters are developed. And this is where Sinclair fails to deliver. By the end of the series numerous subplots remain partially developed and unresolved. For example, it is not learned what happened to the second child, Mim, who became Lord of the Dragons. His story just got dropped without resolution. Along the way new subplots came into being and at the end remained unresolved. Several of the subplots were "resolved" by guessing, that is, by a character guessing x is what must have happened, but most were just ignored. The combination of constant introduction of new subplots and leaving them unresolved results in an unsatisfying read over the course of the series. One subplot that was never resolved, and whose lack of resolution I think is most annoying, is what the pendants Tika, Mim, and several other characters find and wear are. We know they are ancient relics, but there is never a telling of who created them, how they are really supposed to be used, what their real powers are, why there are so many of them hidden away, etc. This first book of the series is a very good read, but is not worth pursuing without reading the followup stories, which themselves are not worth pursuing. One note of caution for those with young children: The lead character, Tika, is a young woman. She is often burned between her breasts by the pendant she wears when she uses a great amount of her magical powers. The power use renders her unconscious and her older, male follower, Sket, completely undresses her, bathes her, puts ointment on the burn and sometimes puts a nightgown on her. Nothing untoward occurs, but readers with young children may not want to have to have the discussion of whether an older man should be undressing a 15-year-old girl.

Though it starts slow it is enthralling and worth a read. Next book reads faster and deepens the plot.

Great series. A bit confusing at first. I wish a map had been provided but otherwise tis story as a "starter" certainly had everything I want to see. A great new world.good well developed characters and cats and Dragons.

I was surprised by this book. It started off kinda slow, but then the pace picked up really fast. Its a good story and i was happy to find that i actually connected with the characters. The only problem i had with this book was it was kind of hard to tell when a new persons point of view happened. It switched between the views in a bit of a rush and that got me cinfused at first, but once i became used to the style of writing it wasnt so bad. Id definitely recomend it if you are into this kind of book.

I loved this book. It was well written and had tons of different characters and situations. I loved it so much, I bought the entire series and eagerly await the next book to come out.

I have read the whole series and did enjoy it. The first book introduced you to the world and most of the main players. The bad guys were exceptional in their meanness that the did to the world. As a coming of age and into powers, the book leads you on a roller coaster of Adventures and discoveries. A fun time all the way through.. Realy a good read.

The plot seems to be going nowhere for most of the book beyond "lets do this ... 'because' style motivation" made all the worse given how much of the unique animals, (many sentient), magical maccguffins, etc are regularly brought up as if the reader should be a native of this world not needing an explaination on it. A prime example is the vicious & uncooperative mounts used throughout the book are only given the briefest of descriptions after hundreds of pages on page 820something. Sudden jarring & bizzare writing style shifts regularly gracing the pages is made worse by the seeminly near random chapter placement resulting in a book that reads like a bunch of random slashfic authors got together to write a book together with no editor going over anything until 800some pages in

899 pages. Tika is a runaway slave. Rather than become a sex slave, she runs away into the mountains. She stumbles upon a remote cave, while a dragons clutch is hatching. She somehow bonds with a newborn Farn. Adventure to save the realn ensues. I really enjoyed this book alot. After the first 150 pages i couldnt put it down. Looks like the 1st book of 6 in the series. Definintly will be getting all 6
