First the cover of this novel is absolutely gorgeous. The color and the image of the dragon are very appealing and if you continue on with the series you will see its nice to put "a face to the dragon". This book is very slow burn. If you like character development and behind the scenes treachery this would be a wonderful book for you. There are a few action scenes involving the dragons which were fun and this book gave off a very appealing medieval setting. I also enjoyed the POV of the dragon which was refreshing since I haven't read that before.
If you read this book and are on the fence about continuing the series I do recommend you keep on. The second novel is the same pace as the first as in its slow BUT there are new elements (especially with the dragons) that come to light and it brings a whole new storyline that I found very interesting.
