I loved the concept of this book - an alternate reality to history. It is a historical fiction novel with a twist (the existence of dragons). The writing is amazing, especially by a first time novelist. The language is clean and the story is well told.
To me, though, the whole purpose of the story was the setting. Sure, the dragons help ward off an attack by Napoleon, but it still didn't seem like there was much of a point to the book other than to have a story about dragons. I was interested enough to find out more to try and place a hold on the second book, but unfortunately, it's not available at my library. I'm not interested enough to buy a copy of the next book.
