It's such a great series.

Have you read this book? If so, what rating would you give it? If not, why do you want to read it?

YES. It's fantastic and amazing and I could rave on and on about it, but I'll save that for the next question.

I give this book 5 stars!

Why did you pick this book as one of your twelve this Christmas?

This book is full of magic and myths and lore and the best part: DRAGONS. I feel that dragons are undervalued in books. They are becoming more and more popular, but these books are just too freaking good. They are amazingly original, and I fall in love with this series every time I read them.

People should read this to experience the amazing world that D'Lacey created. It's full of such amazing magic and lore that I just cannot express how much I love this book. It's incredible.

What's the age limit for this book?

Here it differs. On Amazon, it says all the books are for people 8 years and up. On the author's website, it says 9 and up for the first one, and 10 and up for the following books. I'm sticking with 8 and up, but it's up to you.
