Book Review: First Flight – Dragon School by Sarah K.L. Wilson
First off, let me state with a firm voice, “I Love Dragons! I am a fan of Anne McCaffrey’s work and Christopher Paolini. Therefore, it stood to reason that I would be predispositioned to this book. I was not disappointed. There is fast paced action, intrigue, good versus evil, war, and a hint of romance. Just loved the book.
What I did not like was the episode style of writing. The series books (and yes, I bought the series) are very short, a couple of hours reading, or less, for me. Thankfully the first season series is complete so I could go right through them. But for younger readers or slower readers these are great!
