Where to start? Hmm. I loved the characters in this book. Not only were they believable (and for a half dragon shapeshifter from another world, that’s always a good thing), but they were fun. The dynamic being developed between the “superhero and her sidekick” shows a lot of promise, and it’s fun to see Dahlia get pulled in directions she is convinced she shouldn’t go. I like the non-traditional heroine, and I’m intrigued to see how the series and Dahlia’s new life unfolds from here. Though a part of me wonders just how much of Dahlia’s pseudo-fond memories of Drimera are real and how much is rose-colored glasses.
I did feel that perhaps it was a little heavy on the sheer number of species and new terminology, but I can understand it–we are talking about alternative worlds after all. But if that’s the biggest criticism I have, that says a lot.
I’m definitely looking forward to the next one!
