I cannot even begin to tell you how much I love this book! I can't! Because it will just be me gushing over the brilliance that is Jo Walton and her writing. She writes spectacularly! She can get the reader wrapped up in this high society of dragons and the reader can imagine being one of these dragons! It's hard to explain but the setting just comes alive right before you.
The characters are all incredible and many of them are flawed but it's because of that you end up loving them all the more. My favorite character is Sher. He's just incredibly well-balanced and developed and charming and just... lovely~ *Swoons* I may have fallen for a dragon... oh well~
I just cannot recommend this book enough. If you love fantasy, dragons, books set during Victorian times, then I think you will LOVE this book. It's such a great mix of historical fiction and fantasy blended together nicely to create a unique and intriguing story. Cannot recommend it enough! Jo Walton has gained a new fan with this lovely novel she has written. Cannot wait to read more of her works!
