Book Review #1128 The Fire Within by Chris d'Lacey

Book Review #1128
The Fire Within by Chris d'Lacey
Rating: one star (out of four)

I had been meaning to read this series for a while and so I was looking forwad to picking up the first book. Unfortunately, I did not like it! I was a little shocked. It was not what I had been expecting and quite a disappointment. I think I was convinced (partly by the book covers) that it was going to be this epic high fantasy, but it wasn't like that at all. I felt like the writing style was very juvenile. I kind of got the impression the author wasn't sure if we were following along so he spelled every single detail out. It got old fast. The writing felt dumbed-down - not something I'm a fan of. This novel did not turn out how I had expected and I thought the characters, story, and even the dragons were very lackluster. Not something I'd recommend.
