As I am sure that you can all tell, given the number of book reviews that I have done, I LOVE to read. Any genre, any length, any author...give me a book, and I will read it!
I was given the opportunity to review a copy of Dragon: Ten Tales of Fiery Beasts, edited by Rayne Hall, and although it is a combination of 10 different short stories, the stories themselves are engaging. The fact that the stories are written by several different authors, including Rayne herself, allows us to experience different writing styles.
The stories in this book are PG 13, but I found that some of them were alright for my son (age 7) to listen to. There are a few of the stories that are just about a page in length, and some that are a bit longer, but overall there is a nice flow to the book.
Most of the stories are written from the point of view of the society in which the dragon lives, but there is one, Rayne's story called The Introvert Dragon, and it is written from the point of view of the dragon. It was a nice change. Some of the stories take place in ancient times, and some of them take place in more recent times.
Overall, I think that Rayne and the other authors did an excellent job with this book, I think it is best suited for young adults and will be saving it on the Kindle for my children. If you know someone that loves Dragons, and folklore, then I recommend this book. You can get a copy of Dragon: Ten Tales of Fiery Beasts on Amazon for .99
