So I found out today that someone wrote a capsule review of Dragon Stones on Lulu.com. (My father, who keeps closer track of this sort of thing than I do, let me know about it.) With some trepidation I went to read the review, but I needn’t have worried — this is the best review I’ve gotten since M. Kenyon Charboneaux rated Night Watchman “1,000 on a scale of 1-5”. Although the review is anonymous, let me assure everyone that I didn’t write it myself; I was busy in the mountains all day today!
Dragon Stones6 out of 61 Jun 2008byThe story captures the reader right away with interesting characters and descriptive writing. The writer is, in fact, facile with words and the book is an easy read. While it follows the adventure genre of characters moving from situation to situation, one does not wonder, as with some novels, when the string of obstacles will end. I might add that the cast of characters is diverse and interesting. Although it is a lengthy novel, it was not overlong and kept my interest. While the ending ties everything up decently, there are enough strings left for a couple of sequels, and I, for one hope they follow soon.
