I feel somewhat incomplete because I didn't read the second book extract, but I have it to read next, so whatever I guess.
I'll start off with how beautiful the cover art and the panel illustrations throughout the book are, as well as the end art. I think this really allowed me to imagine all the different type of wyrmes of the world.
However, I wish I could have actually enjoyed the story line more, but for me it just sounded too complicated. Whilst I had little to no trouble actually imagining the wyrmes, I greatly struggled imaging the landscape and it's surroundings. I got very confused with the amount of charterers P.O.V and I slightly struggled working out how the characters exactly fit with the main story line.
I will go on to reading the rest in this trilogy though because 1) I have the rest so I might as well 2) I find it difficult to leave a series incomplete and 3) the cover art will look marvelous lined up on my bookshelf and will be a gorgeous addition. :P

So pick it up, give it a go and enjoy!^.^

The Edge Chronicles were some of my favourite books as a teenager, so when I saw a new Stewart/Riddle, it was a pretty much instant pick-up off the shelf. And, with dragons too! And I am pleased to say, they've not gotten any less fantastic as I've grown up. Wicked characters, absolutely gorgeous art, awesome plotlines and general just, ah, I love these books! Will be a series I'll keep looking out for the rest of =)

The fantasy novel that I was craving. I really enjoyed the world this set in and the plot in genera. I did have some issues with the romance though.
