Okay, this book is one of my favorites. According to me the previous two reviews didn't explain much.
First off, Dragon Sleeping continues with Dragon Waking. The wizards are becoming desperate and are struggling and fighting even more with the dragon so close.
The neighbours are turning against each other and struggling merely for survival. More of them receive stones from the dragon and Nunn, a dark wizard, is as cunning as ever and continues to use and toy with everyone.
Nick's sword is changing the young boy and Nick is becoming unsure what to do.
In this book we learn more of Obar and his true intentions and how Mary Lou feels about Garo. We learn the deepest desires of the neighbours and we begin to question who the dragon is going to take next.
Will the neighbours all turn against each other or will they band together to be all they can be? What's to become of the wizards?
This book is not boring and I found it interesting and just as great as the last book. Usually in sequels we find that they destroy everything, but this book does not. It ties in perfectly with the rest of the trilogy.
