A Symphony of Dragons is a book of short stories, with each one about a dragon, or dragons. The stories are varied and engaging. The lyrical, descriptive writing conveys both beauty and fear to different degrees. My favourite story was The Apothecary's Art. The phrase, 'Be careful what you ask for,' springs to mind. The book is beautifully written and presented. The author will surprise you with her imagination and intricate detail. I bought this book at a discount at a bookfair, partly because I loved the cover and partly because I enjoy reading myths and legends. I wasn't disappointed and highly recommend, A Symphony of Dragons.
