This review is from: The Adamantine Palace (Hardcover)
When I first heard about a new fantasy trilogy incorporating dragons I was somewhat hesitant at ordering since the last efforts with these beasts didn't quite portray them the way I would have liked. To me, dragons are cruel creatures, firebreathing monsters, not ponies. But I'm glad I did get this one because Stephen Deas has really given them a new lease of life! The book is full of politics, intrigue, a nice cast of not terribly black and white characters ( Jehal, the murderous, bedhopping villain being my favourite one) and a good sprinkling of sex (I'm not complaining!) but it really does come to life when Snow (the central dragon in this one) makes her first appearance. She's alien and she's a true firebreathing monster! Hurrah!! Bring on the sequel, I say!
Hopefully there will be a German edition at some point - It'll be interesting to see how it's translated :)
