Goodreads Book Review - Secret of the Dragon

Secret of the DragonSecret of the Dragon by Margaret Weis

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Honestly, I wasn't that big a fan of the first book of this series, Bones of the Dragon. A large part of that was due to just how completely unlikeable the main character Skylan is.  Secret of the Dragon is, in my opinion, miles better because of the transformation Skylan undergoes. In fact, it's so much better that, in retrospect, it makes me look much more favorably on Bones of the Dragon. The things Skylan and his warriors go through make up a sort of modern Spartacus adventure, and it's a fun read. The storyline with the new character Chloe is a sort of cliche, but it's handled well enough to make it enjoyable and even touching anyway. The last hundred pages or so are so thrilling I could barely make myself put the book down. Whereas after reading Bones of the Dragon, I was considering abandoning this planned six-volume story before it got started, after reading Secret of the Dragon I find I can't wait for the next installment.
