Kurzbeschreibung

Having spent her entire life disguised as a boy to avoid the risk of being forced into sexual slavery, fifteen year old Davran finds herself transported to a world thought to be legend. With sunlight, an abundance of food and people that trust, this world is everything her home is not. She could be happy, she could disclose the love she feels for Ronyn (the dragon trainer’s son), but when Hesperus (the Keeper-of-Knowledge) discovers her, she may have to return to a world of misery where even suicide is no escape and where the most frightening monster is not the dragons or the razor-hounds, but the tyrannical ruler, Saurian.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Good Read 24. Februar 2013
Von rowat - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is really a four-and-a-halfer but the rather blunt scoring system doesn't permit it!
I enjoyed this book a lot as it has all the right ingredients for a good read: well drawn and believable main characters; not one but two "worlds" brought to life in a credible way; good storyline - and a decent hint of menace running through. I look forward to reading the sequel.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Imaginative fantasy 6. Januar 2013
Von Ignite - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the story of a girl on the brink of womanhood in a world where pretty girls are taken as sexual playthings by the ruler whose taste leans towards torture and murder. Her parents have disguised her as a boy. She makes her way into a parallel world where she finds a more loving environment amongst a family who have historically always been dragon trainers. To prevent evil overtaking both worlds, she has to go back - on a black dragon, the most dangerous.

The story is interesting and imaginative; it's written using some lovely language and I found it very enjoyable. There was some good descriptive writing - I found the dragon fight absolutely gripping and had to grit my own teeth as the dragon's were damaged! There are some characters here with considerable depths - the despotic ruler's assistant; the Keeper, Hesperus, whose role I don't fully understand; the Miller who was once a Dragon Trainer. If you're a lover of a good, imaginative fantasy tale, you'll enjoy this story. There's at least one sequel and I can see it won't be long before I read that too.

Von Holly - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I truly enjoyed the way the story written, one minute you feel you know what's happening, and the next you realize you have it totally wrong and it's so much more interesting than what you were expecting.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Fuel To The Fire 11. Mai 2013
Von The Book Bratz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Having spent her entire life disguised as a boy to avoid being dragged into horrible slavery, Davran gets caught in a sort of earthquake in a cave, which leads her to the world that she was always told about but never thought it was real. In this world, there's sunlight, lots of food and friendly people...basically, this world is the complete opposite of her own. She gets taken in by a retired dragon trainer and soon starts crushing on his soon, Ronyn. When Davran is discovered, she learns that a prophecy proclaims that she'll have to go back to her original world. But will she?

Pros:

I've never really been gripped by fantasy novels with dragons and witches and magic. *shrugs* I don't know. It's just never gripped me. However, this novel did. I wasn't in total I-Can't-Put-The-Book-Down mode. I kept picking up my iPad and reading whenever I had free time, but it wasn't like I was clearing my schedule to read it. (I'm also swamped with AP Exams. That's another reason). Anyway, Staniforth's writing style is very clear and descriptive. He captures dialogue between characters seamlessly. This story was interested and imaginative, and it didn't follow common, everyday plots.

*Note: I am not a fan of common, everyday plots.

Cons:

I wasn't entirely keen on the fact that once Davran entered the "other world", we basically forgot about her parents. There were a couple of brief mentions of them trying to dig her out. But according to the story, Davran had been gone for a couple of days already. What I really wanted to know is how Davran's father reacted when he came back from trotting off and couldn't find his daughter. What did he do? How did he know that she was in that cave? According to the story, wasn't the cave a bit of a distance away? In between those few days of Davran originally going missing and the groups of men helping dig through the rubble, what was going on?

All in all, I liked the book. It kept me entertained. Which is something that a book should definitely do!

Special thanks to David Staniforth for giving me the privilege of reading his book. :)

4.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastic Fantasy 9. März 2013
Von Victoria - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I very much enjoyed this fantasy novel, romping through it in a few hours before reading through again more slowly, savouring the details. I had the second book in this series, Ruler's Desire, waiting on my kindle and I was very glad of that; I simply had to know what happened next to Davran, Ronyn and Khalil.
The characters were very well drawn and believable, which is very important to me. I could believe in the characters which allowed me to care about them. I loved the contrasts between the two worlds; the dark world Davran inhabits, filled with fear, and the light, free world Ronyn comes from.
You'd be forgiven for expecting the descriptions of Davran's world - where young ladies are taken to be concubines for a sadistic ruler - to be unrelentingly dark and disturbing, but I think the author balances it beautifully. Some authors have a tendency to splash shock across every page, desensitising the reader and ruining the effect. That isn't the case in this book. When scenes of severe brutality are revealed they are done skilfully, and are necessary to the plot, often hinting at awfulness without actually showing the reader, allowing the reader's imagination to sketch in the fine detail. This is balanced brilliantly with descriptive scenes that are intense and fantastically well realised. The scene where Hesperus trains the black dragon spring to mind as I ponder this, as does the scene where Davran (pretending to be male to escape the awful fate of girls in her world) gets her first "moon blood".
I often felt that it was about love and life and family enduring through even the worst of circumstances, the changed my mind and decided it was about how hatred always begets more hatred and suffering. I think this is one of those books that I will be able to return to again and again, knowing that I will find a new level to it on each reading.
If a straightforward, well written fantasy with plenty of tension and added dragons is your thing, this is the perfect book for you. If you are looking for something a little deeper, that makes you think and wonder and ask questions of yourself, I think you will enjoy it too.
I'd give this four and a half stars if Amazon would allow it, and recommend it for readers of 15+
