it was ok

In Jo Walton's series of "Where to Start" blog entries for each letter of the alphabet, her "W" entry for Lawrence Watt-Evans suggested Dragon Weather for those who like Dumas.

I signed up immediately.

What she meant was "those who like The Count of Monte Cristo" not those who like something of a creative riff, like The Phoenix Guards.

Dragon Weather doesn't really update Count in any interesting way, or even show the creativity of revenge fantasy that Dumas managed over 100 years ago.

I did not finish the book. Perhaps it got better in the last half? I doubt it.
