General mood of this book: confusion, some romance, plainworld moving further into fantasy
Chris is making a slow build from the realm of the normal into a world where anything can happen in this book. While reading it the first time, this could annoy the reader--but later the reader will be glad for the break from breath-ripping magical power and transdimensional insanity. Not my favorite in the series, but entertaining.
This is the second installment of Christ D'lacey's Last Dragon Chronicles.
