As for William, I loved that he’s never put off by Judith’s strength – both before and after he discovers her secret. He never once thinks she’s unwomanly or strange because of the power she has and the strength she wields. He might have a few thoughts about societal manners, but they’re soon overcome and I enjoyed the way the two grew gradually closer and learnt to trust each other. William’s no fool either, and although at times it felt like his investigations were pretty slow, he is smart enough that I could believe he’d work things out eventually.
However, I thought the villain of the piece was too obvious from the start, and for a book with Dragon in the title, actual dragon time was sadly short. The pace is gradual, giving the romance time to blossom, though even that is taken at a steady pace. The only thing that did feel slightly rushed was the climax of the villain plot. For a bunch of characters who never assume anything up to this point, afterwards a lot of assumptions seemed to be made and other things were left a little more open than I might have liked.Read more ›
I find the writing good at providing details of the times, and weaving in just those which will be needed later in the story. We also learn that Lady Judith MacAllister has been secretly a soldier or sailor in past years, acting a man while her supposed ladyship is absent from the castle and is said to have died abroad, before she returns as a relative looking the image of her grandmother. This aspect reminds me of the Diana Wynne Jones story Fire And Hemlock. The demons are a new departure and are creepily and convincingly written; they were like a Janny Wurts story. I also enjoyed the shapechanging sequences featuring a green dragon. When we get action there is plenty of it.
Romance also features because it wouldn't be a castle without a beauty and a beast, though not as that legend normally goes. This is an adult romantic tale with strong paranormal aspects and some gruesome scenes. However, there is also plenty of wooded Scots countryside and fresh air, which gets William out of smoggy London and stifling dinner engagements. Just as well he brought some silver bullets.
