A fantasy story about a girl working in a dragon stable who longs to ride a very special dragon. A great dragon story for horse lovers. ( )

I thought the writing style was rather impressive for someone sixteen years old—in fact, it's good for any age, I think. The writing style was easy to follow and interesting.I enjoyed the first half of the book or so. The plot for second half didn't hold my attention; so, I didn't really pay much attention there. I guess I was expecting the plot to revolve around something bigger after she got lost and all. There didn't seem to be many new elements to the plot after that, I mean—just visiting things similar to what has already happened (only with some triumph later on). If not for this, I'd give it four stars instead of three (provided I found it interesting still). I should note that I do find it interesting how they came back and worked things out; it wasn't expected, and that can definitely be good (however, it didn't seem as exciting as whatever I was expecting, even though I still consider it a noble move on the writer's part). I might read the second one if I decide I like the look of the plot.I could definitely tell this book was British. Much of the language used in dialog wasn't too far off from some British juvenile fiction I had read published around 1900, actually. I don't know if that manner of dialog is common in modern British literature, though, but if not, she did an excellent job of recreating certain things of an older period. ( )

I liked this book because it ends each chapter on a cliff hanger, making you want to read on. ( )
