Everything about this book was great.
I really enjoyed this book. I was given the opportunity to receive it from the author, Mark Gomez with the understanding that I would review it.
This had similarly with "The Dragon Riders of Pern" series of books by Anne McCaffrey. A human bonds with a dragon and their lives are intertwined thereafter. That's where the similarities end. This setting is a radioactive, post-dystopian earth, where the Earth's elete have abandoned the rest of humanity.
The narration was very good and in no way hinders the progression of the story. I have no problem recommending this book.
