The Wearle

The Erth Dragons, #1

Written by Chris D’Lacey

You know you are in trouble when the first pages of a book have to list all the characters and terms to help you keep things sorted. This is a middle grade book and I just don’t see them sticking with something they have to constantly turn to the front to understand who is who and what is going on. There is a good story here (though a familiar one): dragons come to earth, take over human land, evil dragon plotting evil things, and a human boy caught between two worlds. But with little character development, rushed plots and constantly killing off characters, it is not a series I would recommend or plan to continue to read.
