This is good for a first book in the series. It explained lots of terms and introduced lots of characters.
The story of our first couple is quite good, but not that steamy. I think this is more on he action side. The fight scenes are highly detailed so they're all good. The powers of the Pyr weren't expplained in great detail, but this just makes a reader anticipate more from the series.
All in all, this is good and I will definitely read e next one. :)
P.S. I read his book becausr I love G.A. Aiken's dragon books... unfortunately, this one is not as light as Aiken's books. The plot and more seriousI guess. They're both good in different ways.
