Another epic battle.
Harry Potter vs. The Lord of the Rings
Brings the characters alive.
Love this series! Worth reading over and over again.
It is not Tolkien. It uses too many easy outs for situations or characters through use of magic or no magic. It is fantasy but "suspension of disbelief" is not aided by inconsistency in character, characters, strength, weakness, and fiddling magic.
Excellently done! As alway, Gerard Doyle did an amazing job and Christopher's second book is even better than the first.
Having just finished book one and book two, I feel comfortable admitting that the story is entertaining but flawed. As the main character grows through his struggles, his mastery of skills and talents happen too quickly making the story less engaging to me. Mastering the sword in just a few months, performing magic for the first time accidentally, then as he struggles to learn to be a dragon rider it happens instantaneously during an annual ritual... It's poor storytelling but acceptable for younger readers. As I said, flawed but entertaining.
This storey took me on a journey, thank you for making this book available for me to listen to. I love audio books so I can have a busy life q's still enjoy my stories.
