I found this book to be an exciting read, and better than The Inheritance Cycle books by Christopher Paolini. In fact, I was more than a little captivated by it and am now coming to the end of the second book in the Prophecy Of The Kings trilogy - Dragon Rider. I'm enjoying the read and escapism so much that I have bought all three books for a friend who liked Christopher Paolini's books. She is sure to like these. Well done David Burrows. I think you should write some more please!
