I SUPPOSE I can’t love them all. Though, I was taken by surprise that I didn’t love In the Shadow of the Dragon King, by J. Keller Ford. The cover, synopsis, and genre were spot on—a trifecta of sorts. And, did I mention dragon? I thought (or hoped) I would be reading about a coming-of-age story where the deep bonds of camaraderie between Eric and David are forged, as they set out on an epic dragon adventure. In actuality, David and Eric, never meet until the end of the book—some 400 pages later. While two concurrent timelines between alternating perspectives aren’t a deal breaker for me by any means, I did struggle with other elements.
