This is the latest offering in the Farloft series of books about dragons and their kind. The tale is an adventure with far more than just adventuring to recommend it. It is an easy relaxing read, designed for all ages, though more especially for the younger reader or for that special bedtime story.
Despite this, adults of all ages who enjoy the thought of dragons as being friends, not blood thirsty killing machines as history has a tendency to described them, will also love these tales and especially this latest one.
Farloft sets out to save his family, his friends, his country, and his home. To do so he must first recruit a range of other dragons and helpers to his cause, some of whom are reluctant at best to join said cause. The machinations, twists and turns, the lightness amidst what should be darkness and the hope that flows from the tale are enlightening and make the reader feel carried along in the world of dragons.
As a final thought, I would have to say that this book has the ability to grab a tight, but friendly hold, on the reader from page one and not let go to the very last word has been read. I would give it five stars and more if they were available, so why not give it a try? You won’t regret it.
