This book had great premises, but it was such a letdown.
It's BORING. I was BORED out of my mind while reading it. The story is not compelling and totally uninteresting, the characters  (while proposing the great idea of having a fat dragon and not rely on fat jokes to carry the dialogue) are not properly fleshed out, and the writing style is slobby and in dire need of a good polish.
I felt cheated of my time while reading it.

Loved the book! Befriending a dragon-turned-human plot was exactly what I was looking to read for so long.
The book gives an adventure sense of LOTR mixed with some humor.

Also, the story would be amazing if adapted as an anime. That's how I imagined the story and it was SO good!

Soooooooooo I read that in a day..

I have been anticipating this book ever since I first laid my eyes upon the gorgeous cover art. You see, I have this perception that any high fantasy book gracing this kind of cover will most likely reflect that beauty with amazing content inside. once again I was proven right. I can't imagine seeing a physical copy. My eyes will melt.

Unpredictable and incredibly well-told story aside, the characters were fascinatingly original. The main characters, Alex, Doug, and Carter have a dynamic and interesting friendship going on between them. 

As much as I loved the characters, IF I had to choose one favorite aspect from this book I would personally choose the world-building, which is something rare for me because I usually prioritize characterizations over everything else, but this novel is a special case. I loved how efficiently, intricately, and effectively the world-building was presented. However, it was the sheer originality regarding the creation of the world in this book that completely awed me. Plus, the rich history and lore of the kingdoms and war between them made the world feel fully realized and vividly constructed.

Also Dragons. LIKE WE HAVE DRAGONS IN THIS BOOK PEOPLE and oh man, is it a delight.

This book had a good story line.  It was a unique spin on some of the other fantasy books that I have read.  I found some parts of the story to be humorous.  I liked the way the author used various types of magic to tell the story.  I think I would have liked the story more if the characters were more developed.  I felt as if I didn't get enough backstory with Connor and Owen, and found myself asking questions about their story, as I was reading it.  
I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review.
