Raza's youngest son, Denali, must find a way to save his father and bring him safely out of the frozen wasteland. Lost in a blizzard, hunted by a pack of wolves, followed by a Great White dragon hatchling, Denali must use all his wit and skill to survive.
MY TAKE Another hit by Shelley. I listened to the audiobook, and Tren Sparks does a wonderful job again bringing the characters to life, especially the dragons. This is a continuation of the tale begun in Blue Dragon and White Dragon is just as action packed as the first book. It's filled with on-the-edge-of-your-seat action as Kanvar goes in search of his grandfather.
It's such a deliciously twisted family. I'm not into Game of Thrones kind of awfulness, greed and viciousness for its own sake. The characters in the Dragonbound series have understandable reasons--mostly--for how they act, although they are certainly still flawed. The bad reputation the Naga (those who bond with dragons and become linked with them) have is justly earned. Their mind-control power is something easy to abuse, and their arrogance has not diminished.
I give it 4 1/2 out of 5 stars, rounded up. The story has a good resolution with some healing for the family, though it seemed to happen a little too quickly in the end. Some things that have been festering that long take a long time to heal. But the baby white dragon was precious.
I received an audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
