Fantastic! This is a great story, full of dragons, other realms, magic, and unlikely friendships. I enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it to my friends. :)

As an avid fantasy reader I find it easy to bump into things that I've seen before, but I enjoyed this read. I picked it up by chance (February's "Blind Date With a Book") and found the characters to be enjoyably quirky, and what might normally come off to me as juvenile (I am an adult reading this) or silly, was pulled off rather well. My only gripe is that as a part of a trilogy, it sort of assumes that I'm going to read the rest of them so the story does not progress as far as I suspect it could, but there is a sort of resolution and it does end at a point where an end seems suitable. (Personally, I would like to see more single book fantasies but this seems to be the formula now).

On a side note, if I put my academic hat on there are some religious and possibly Christian parallels in the story. I suppose some people might be annoyed by that but I personally didn't find it obtrusive or anything, and it fits with the story this far.

I didn't intend to read more than the one book from the start, but might continue later when the mood strikes me. I would recommend it.

These books get better as the series goes on. In this one, the characters are a little annoying when you know they should be doing something else than what they are, but that's realistic. I highly enjoyed this book, but I feel like Ms. Paul reused some of her favorite ideas from The DragonKeeper Chronicles. Primen is virtually explained as Wulder, the dragons are almost identical, and so on. I'm not quite sure if they're supposed to be in the same world? That aside, Bixby was hilarious. I'm totally jealous of her fashion sense. :) However, she fit the character cliché of the "know-it-all" who the protagonist is somewhat jealous of, you know? Ultimately, I really like these books, and I think the author is good at creating worlds and sticking to her own rules.
