The Color of Dragons

We rated this book:


The Color of Dragons is set in a world ruled by tyranny. Maggie, a young girl, assistant to a charlatan, is just trying to stay alive and healthy when she sees a party of soldiers with a captive dragon. She is enthralled by the dragon, who scratches her hand deeply with one claw, unlocking hidden powers of moonlight. Meanwhile, the king’s champion, Griffin, is preparing to face and slay Maggie’s dragon and many violent draconian beasts.

A story of unlikely love, magic, and tyranny, The Color of Dragons is a thrilling novel that pulls you in from the beginning. It is beautiful in that it provides just the right amount of description to make it easy to visualize, yet it is a speedy read. The story is very violent. There are some gruesome moments where many characters die and there are references to rape. I have to say that I love this book, although I think it might give me some nightmares.

I think all middle schools and libraries should own this book. I highly recommend The Color of Dragons to teens and preteens who like Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and dragons.
