If only the second half was as good as the first!
This book started off so good and I was hooked from the first page with the whole story set up - I was eager to keep reading and discover just who the Dragon was and what was going to happen to Agnieszka.
I was loving the relationship between the Dragon and Agnieszka as she was learning about magic and how the Dragon uses it to hold back the terrible Wood. I was completely emerged in the story but then it suddenly changed as Agnieszka leaves the Dragon to go to court.
It then changed pace to something quite slow and not much really happening until a big fight scene. The last few chapters then just involved the aftermath and only until the last page did we get a hint at what would happen in the end. It's just didn't feel very satisfying and I turned the page to see nothing and after such a good beginning, the ending didn't quite match up.
So while I loved the first half of the book, I wasn't very keen on the second half. It's a really good story about magic and witches and wizards but the ending was disatisfying and the story didn't go the way I thought it would. I just wished the second half had been as good as the beginning!
