The Dragon Chronicles by Ellen Campbell
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I dunno. I expected to be more excited about this anthology. I think it started off pretty well,became pretty much "meh" in the middle and then picked up again at the end.
Some of the more notable stories that I liked, in no particular order, are:
(Chris Pourteau): Grey tells the story of the friendship between Amanda, a young girl, and Grey, the last dragon in the world. It's sweet - and somewhat predictable, but incredibly heartwarming.
Ten Things You Should Know About Dragons
(Elle Casey): This was funny, whimsical, and the perfect way to start the anthology. Very tongue-in-cheek humour, but also very serious at the same time. After all, Dragons can kill you, even if you're their Dragon Rider.
Tasty Dragon Meat
(K.J. Colt): This was somewhat folksy - and a complete story arch (as compared to some of the others that felt a little unfinished).
(Alex Albrinck): Transparency is a tale of forbidden love between ice dragons and fire dragons. I liked it, despite the fact that it was never entirely clear how the half-breeds came about.
(Vincent Trigili): A little more lore-like, this is the tale of the last dragon and dragonmaster in the world.
(Monica Enderle Pierce): I have a love/hate relationship with Westerns. Some I love, some I hate... it's rarely anywhere in between. Luckily, Judgment ended up in the love side of it, because it would be really sad to end this book with a story I hated.
Note: I received a review copy of this ebook via NetGalley.
