Format: Hardcover
Margaret Weis is known for her work with dragons, so it's no surprise that her latest trilogy is yet another one about them. This time, though, she's created her own world and designed her own little dragon society. The first book, Mistress of Dragons, was an excellent beginning, showing us just enough of the world to intrigue us and populating it with some interesting characters to go along with it. Granted, the world wasn't explored very thoroughly, but there was just enough there to make us wonder. However, Dragon's Son continues the few shortfalls that the first book had and gives us a few more, hamstringing the characters and giving us other characters who we don't care about at all. It's a major step down, but it still looks recoverable for the third book.
There are so many things wrong with this book that I'll start with the good stuff to get it out of the way. Once again Draconas is the most interesting character in the book. While he does care about humans, and humanity in general, he's not above using people to further his own ends when the circumstances seem to demand it. He doesn't like it, but he knows it has to be done. He's harsh with the boys when he needs to be, but the sequence where he brings Marcus out of the shell in which he has encased himself demonstrates that he really does care.
That's really about it. Unfortunately, for the second book in the trilogy, Weis has given us a rather dull book with characters that are difficult to care about. Some of the characters from the first book aren't used that much at all (criminally, Draconas really doesn't factor into the book that much, and Edward doesn't have a lot to do either) while others almost undergo lobotomies. Bellona is almost nothing like the warrior she was in the first book.
