This is really shaping up to be very good and very different. I've really enjoyed it so far. This one was a little bit slow going, but it picked up. More plot twists in this one. The Characters are very good and likable. Very well written.
N'doch was a survivor and didn't trust many people. When he stumbled upon Erde and discovered his destiny, he didn't want any part of it. N'doch discovers many things about himself as well as learning from Erde, Earth and Water.
A great read. This is the second book of the Dragon Quartet.
I loved the whole series, I was only disapointed it ended.
The World-saving quest of the German girl Erde and her Dragon Earth leads them through time to a devastated future where they meet up with a young African boy who has just discovered the Dragon Water.
I didn't enjoy this as much as the first book (The Book of Earth) and found a good portion rather rambling and boring. N'Doch is not a good hero. In fact he's living in a future time (2013) which is incredibly dangerous and a hand to mouth existence without real family. His deal is just to take what he can and sell it for food. So his first inclination is to "sell" the dragons to a movie studio (the owner just happens to live in town.) It takes a long time for him to grow up and get with the program. They spend most of the book just running from one form of trouble to another before they actually get down to the purpose of the quest.
This is classified as YA but N'Doch is sex crazed and always talking about sleeping with every female he sees. Heck he even thought about having sex with Water. Erde also has weird sexual ideas about Kothen (and she's only 14, while Kothen is 30). It just seemed inappropriate in this series.
