Fantastic read. I really enjoyed this book.
I was a bit hesitant to read it after I read Inkheart earlier this year. I loved Inkheart, but it took me a while to get into it. This one, however, had me hooked at page one.
This is a great adventure tale. In comparison to Inkheart, it has a faster pace. There isn't as much downtime between events. In this one there is pretty much always something going on.
I loved the characters as well. Sorrel was definitely my favorite. The edition I read also included a very short story about how Sorrel and Firedrake met.
A great book for young dragon-lovers, especially those who don't really like dragons only being represented as evil in books.
