Book review: The Morwitch and the Dragon, by Jennifer Redmile

A fast-paced, action-packed fantasy thriller, The Morwitch and the Dragon is sure to appeal to the YA audience. It opens excellently well, with immediate character engagement, and the action doesn't let up throughout the book.

I would have liked to see the characters a little more developed and a bit more dramatic tension - if I had one criticism of the book it was that the solutions to the many problems faced by the intrepid hero and heroine always seemed to fall a little pat; at no time is the reader in any real doubt of their eventual success, and I thought a bit more uncertainty at times would have enhanced the story. But a very creditable beginning to a series which I feel sure will enjoy great success.

The Morwitch and the Dragon is available from AMAZON.
