4.0 out of 5 stars A real cracker of a series
OK, I can't help it, I'm a big fan of James Owens stories featuring characters and authors well known to the modern reader. The tales are not only imaginative but leap from the page in such a way that you just can't help but be sucked into the world in which he's woven. Its classical world building, the characters are fully formed and unlikely friendships come together...

There is much evidence that the writer doesn't know the meaning of certain nouns and adjectives he uses. As the editor hasn't corrected them, I have to assume the editor doesnot know them either.

Other than bad language, there isn't much of a story. Half of the book is spent repeating and explaining and excusing elements of the previous books, trying to...

This review is from: Shadow Dragons (Imaginarium Geographica) (Paperback)
OK, I can't help it, I'm a big fan of James Owens stories featuring characters and authors well known to the modern reader. The tales are not only imaginative but leap from the page in such a way that you just can't help but be sucked into the world in which he's woven. Its classical world building, the characters are fully formed and unlikely friendships come together within these offerings as they each seek to thwart a disaster to not only the world of imagination but to the human world as well. Its good solid fun, it's a series that I'm saving especially for the my nephews to enjoy at just the right time and one that will help them bridge the gap to enjoying some adult fiction as well as some of the other stories from the characters within.

1.0 out of 5 stars So many evidences of bad writership..., 20 Sep 2011
This review is from: Shadow Dragons (Imaginarium Geographica) (Paperback)
There is much evidence that the writer doesn't know the meaning of certain nouns and adjectives he uses. As the editor hasn't corrected them, I have to assume the editor doesnot know them either.

Other than bad language, there isn't much of a story. Half of the book is spent repeating and explaining and excusing elements of the previous books, trying to re-establish the logic. New characters are introduced every too often and it is impossible to keep track of all of them. Names of creative people are thrown in just for the fun of it, it seems. And I can't get over the fact that some of those creative names are treated irreverently.

Language is dry, descriptions tasteless.

I donot see why this book is published. I can't imagine a young reader would enjoy it.

And this makes me wonder: where is the publishing industry going, if it thinks this is a story worth chucking at young readers?
