I think it was fate reading this book. I saw it twice around, and then it was available for tour, it was like screaming "read me!". I'm so happy i did!

You know you are about to read a good book, when the first words you are "The dragon"...okay kidding. Still, the books starts in an entirely exciting and mysterious dream and you know you won't put the book down if you don't finish it. It's a story every gamer would love. Who doesn't want to get into a game right? And that is a big reason, it's so easily to connect with the story. Personally, i imagined myself doing that some times so actually reading about it, felt real and got me "woo woo". Action, magic, adventure, a dragon are the main elements of the book and with Gardner's simple but captivating writing all comes to life.

If i had a problem that would be my connection with the character. All of them are likeable and interesting to follow for different reasons but you only get to really know Ian. Of course he is the hero of the story, and i kind his POV. He is clever, brave but sometimes he shock and mouth gets the best of him. Still, there are characters like his father Alex that i would love to read more about them and connect more with them too. Because no matter what, it seems like everyone has a part to play.

In the end it was a book i quite enjoyed. Gone in one read, and not only because it was a little small.
