IT WAS WATER'S CALL that summoned the dragon Earth and his human guide, the girl called Erde, on a flight through time, transporting them from the war-torn German principalities in the year 913 to the African coast in 2013.

Earth's quest has taken Erde forwards 1100 years in time to the African coast where in 2013 she meets N'Doch N'Djai and Water. Water is a dragon but not the reason they have traveled to 2013. The Summoner of Earth (and Water apparently) has yet to be found. After lots of mis-steps and mis-communications (Erde only speaks German after all), Water and N'Doch join Erde and Earth on their great quest which is still a mystery to all.

Erde and Earth meet up with Earth's sister, Water and her guide N'Doch in the year 2013. Erde tries to get used to the time change, and N'Doch tried to understand Erde and comprehend that he's been chosen as Water's guide. This is a really good continuation of the "Dragon Quartet". It had me wondering what was going to happen next, and was a real page turner. A very enjoyable read.
I love Erde, but N'Doch wins the award for most hated proagonist- literally all he can think about is himself and um... Well read any other review. But i did love the book, just hated N'Doch. I think this book might have a REALLY bad case of "The author cannot write from the other gender's perspective"itis.

The story was good, but I didn't like N'doch as a character. I imagine that's what the author wanted, but I still wanted to like him. Ah well... perhaps in the next one he'll redeem himself, or be redeemed.
This book was interesting. It really tears the series away from its ostensibly fantasy-based routes into fantasy-scifi. It had interesting messages of culture, class, consumption, and entitlement.
