I liked this book. In spite of misgivings about dragon stories being appropriate for an Austen inspired romance, it was well done. Most of the main characters are completely done over to fit in with the dragon theme, and I can't say that I like all the changes. Mr. Bennett is not nice and annoying. Jane Bennett is starry eyed and kind of a simpleton, though that may be explained in a further book. Elizabeth is still a strong woman, but is too willing to be manipulated and abused by her father and her father's dragon.
The book ends suddenly with no resolution to any of the important issues. This, of course, means there is no choice but to purchase the next volume. Now I feel as if I have been manipulated and abused! Thank goodness I like this author or I would be even more upset.
