A coming of age, or self discovery. I got a bit twisted early on w Who's who, but in the end... so good. I really hope this is the first in a series.

The other reviews dont really give an idea of what the book is about. I wish there was a free sample or something so i could find out more about what this book is really like. Should i try it? I really LOVE dragons and i read two books on dragons in about 4 days. There were about 400 pages in all. How long is this book? It may give me an idea of how long this book will last me. Thanks.

A dragon fantasy with a twist, Forward creates a fully-realized world with well-drawn characters, and a history of magic and philosophy. This novel has one of the best opening lines I've ever read: humorous and attention-grabbing (see quotations). I had to re-read a few sections as the many characters and different plots interweaved and became confusing, but it was well worth it. I love Forward's epigraph of kindness, which shows fully in the characters of Flaxfield and Sam. Starback the dragon is introduced in the opening chapters, but leaves Sam early for reasons which we learn later. One of my favorite parts was when Flaxfield gave young Sam a handful of coins and asked him, over and over, to "put them in order" in different ways. Sam arranges them by size, value, and favorites, then Flaxfield asks him to really think and do it again. Sam uses his magic to learn each coin's story and puts them in two piles: those with good stories and those with sad. Doing the magic and learning the sadness shakes the boy, so Flaxfield ends the lesson for the day and tells him to go out and play. What a great lesson! I wish every child could have such a wise and kind individual teacher. I was surprised and delighted by Forward's tribute's to one of my favorite e.e. cummings poems, "i thank You God for most this amazing day" in Book Four: Dragonborn, chapter two, page 313 where he writes: "The dragon woke from a blue dream of sky (cummings wrote "a true blue dream of sky") and "The dragon drank in the scented woodland air, the ears of his ears awake, the eyes of his eyes opened. (cummings: (now the ears of my ears awake and/now the eyes of my eyes are opened)) and "This was his birthday. He was newly made in a limitless sky over the endless earth." (cummings: "this is the sun's birthday; this is the birth day of life and love and wings:and of the gay/great happening illimitably earth.").I was well-pleased by the outcomes and look forward to further sequels.

The wizard that Sam is apprenticed to dies unexpectedly, leaving Sam alone in the world. The wizard's former apprentices, now grown, refuse to consider Sam one of them, so he runs away to make his own way. Hearing of a college for wizards, he heads there, but his course does not run smoothly.Might be better if you're ten.

This book was awful. The characters felt flat, the plot had huge holes in it and the world felt empty. It was painful to read and the only reason I finished it was to make sure it never got better for this review. Just stay away from this series.

His book is about a young boy named Sam. His master dies and he doesn't know what to do. Along with his dragon friend, he goes on a quest. He has great power and doesn't know it. Will he find a new master? Why does Ash want Sam's power? Read the book to find out.
