I purchased this book from Amazon, Dragon Aster. It's not just a fantasy, but a romance between Cirrus from Aster, and the protagonist Sybl from Earth. There is only one set of remaining doors that joins both univeral realms, and let's just say they're in bad need of repair. Once you get all the dragons lineage figured out it's a very enjoyable read. They don't need to use auditory speaking they can communicate with 'Threads' that can be picked up and heard within their brains. The dragons from ...more
This has never happened to me before. I have never not been able to finish a book or at least get half way through it before giving up and I have never given a book one star before. I hate giving a bad review but I am so disappointed with this book. I might try and pick it up again another time but it wasn't what I was expecting at all. The writing style was very poor. At some points I found myself re-reading a paragraph about three or four times to try and understand what was being described. A ...more
I tried to read this, but found this too confusing. Far too many characters being introduced up front, with no depth given to them to be able to keep them separate. Lots of unique terminology being used (which sounds great) but hardly any reference point to help the reader understand what is meant. Awkward sentence structure, which only added to the issues I had. There were times I had to re-read a paragraph to try and make sense of what was going on.

It's a shame, too. The concept of the story s

Really good book, but I wish there'd been a list of terms and what they meant, and a family tree. That would've been very helpful! And the ending! I want more!!!!

I was totally excited to win this book on Goodreads First Reads!
The cover is absolutely beautiful. The story within also has potential to be beautiful, but as it is the first in a series, we do not know how it ends yet. So far it is doing well.
I did have a little trouble understanding the language of the new world introduced in the book. I never did figure out the difference between a dragon and a dragoon. It was also a little difficult keeping track of the history of Aster and how it affects th

I felt like I was in the middle of a very personal conversation between two friends ... IN MANDARIN!. I was not able to understand absolutely nothing of .Who are these people? ... Some description would have helped.

Too many characters being introduced in the first 20 pages, lots of unique terminology without any reference to help the reader understand what is meant.

The concept of the story sounded so interesting that maybe my expectations were too high.

I cant finished

I am a sucker for romances and this has a great romance in it (considering it is the first in the series). I have never read a book about dragons before but I won this book on GoodReads and it gave me a chance to read something new. My only complaint is that it can be a little confusing but it still a really good book. I look forward to reading the rest of the series.

It was a pretty good book, but it was just a bit hard to follow at the beginning. I can't wait to read the next book in the series! Write on!

I read this in 2011 for a review.

I didn’t think this book was terrible, in fact I thought it had a lot of potential, I just don’t think it is ready to be published yet. Maybe another reader will understand the author’s wavelength a lot better than I did, but I honestly found myself itching to edit this all the way through. My review is more directed at the author than a possible buyer and although I might seem harsh, my initial intention was to help.

The best part of this novel

This book was so confusing! No explanations were given as to context right from the start.
Sorry, just couldn't follow or get into this one. I might try again later.
