Books Will Be Greatwill be great I am excited to get through them but I don t think that they ll reach the lofty heights established hereCompared to the previous 3 stories this book is just dense Not so much in number f pages but rather in content So much happens here The Abolitionist movement and the similarity between the treatment f black slaves and dragons by the English the sickness f the dragons and the ensuing rush for the cure the discoveries that take place n the African continent and the big game changer at the end and bligatory cliffhanger all ensure that this particular book never has a dull momentLaurence s family ties to the Abolition movement play a big role here and the parallels between slave In the End ownership and dragonwnership is a great albeit none too sub. “A new writer is soaring n the wings f a dragon”–The New York Times“Enthralling reading–it’s like Jane Austen playing Dungeons Dragons with Eragon’s Christopher Paolini”–Time n His Majesty’s DragonTragedy has struck His Majesty’s Aerial Corps whose magnificent fleet f fighting dragons and their human captains valiantly defend England’s shores against the encroaching armies f Napoleon Bonaparte An epidemic f unknown r. .
