Please don't make it a Trilogy, it is a Tragedy already,
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Taming Fire (The Dragonprince's Legacy, #1) (English Edition) (Kindle Edition)
From the short discription I was tempted to find an easy read and the price was low enough that I bought a book from an author I did not know. I finished it, not because I enjoyed it but because I hoped it would get better. In short: it did not!
The characters in the story are not developed in any way neither is the story line, which is a shame as there would have surely been place for it. The connection between the main actor and the dragon could have made good reading, if the author had bothered to work on it. The way it is, it is a collection of ideas from movies like Dragon Heart and books from Tolkien to Rowling, thrown in a blender and mashed together.
According to his own biography (which I believed), the story is set in the "rich world of the FirstKing", if this is supposed to be a "rich world" I would hate to see a poor one. His descriptions never leave the world of stereotypes.
The author claims to have been a Writing Professor at university level, I surely hope I will never accidently buy a book from somebody who learned his style from him, and I hope he has mercy and stops his Trilogy after this first book.
