A solid start - especially after trudging through the Tawney Man series. I love how the characters in part one are being slowly developed and explored. For me, this fills a major gap in Hobb's writing and is a welcome relief. I think the pacing of the story suffers a little, but I have confidence that will resolve itself as the series progresses!

Books continues to be cute. It was nice to see people actually like the dragon and treat him well in this book, even though they sometimes didn't really know how to do it. We saw a bit more magic, which is almost never foreshadowed well, but on the other hand it is a book for children and it wasn't terribly done either so I'm not complaining.

I kinda liked the ending, thought it was more bitter than sweet. I mean, I want dragons in the world, even if it's just a fictional world, I really do. And thinking that Ping is gonna spend the rest of her life without dragons is sad, because we've known her for like ... two years or so? Two years that were full of adventures and dragons and then she'll spend the rest of her life without them. It's kinda sad.

But a good series, that I'm happy that I read. Would probably have adored them as a child, but they were enjoyable as an adult as well. ^^

Book series continues to be incredibly cute. Thought I missed Danzi in this book, Kai is also a pretty good dragon ... although the fact that it'll be several hundred, if not thousand, years before he can be a proper dragon and fly and stuff is a bit sad. Oh well.

Good twists in this one, they weren't super-obvious but were still set up in a way so that you could kinda see them coming. Ping's life really isn't easy though, is it? I kept waiting for her to run away with the princess and let's just say I was't too disappointed on that part.

Though do I believe Hua is gone forever after this book? I sure hope not, because that is one crafty rat. I also thought that Ping and Jun might go off on adventures together, but it turns out he was just a fake geek boy so she dropped him like a potato. Good going, Ping.

Based on the description of book three it sounds freaking awesome, so I hope it delivers!

This book was just adorable. A former slave girl, her dragon and her rat going off on adventures in ancient China. It's just all I could ever ask for in a book.

I loved the dragon. Talking dragons are the beest, and even better when they are cute and friendly like this one. I also liked Ping a lot: her resourcefulness reminded me of Mosca Mye, another fave children's book heroine of mine.

The ending was sad, but I guess in a good way, and I can't hardly wait to read the next book. Reading this was the perfet way to spend a Friday night.… (més)
