This was an expertly written story by novelist Chrys Cymri. 'The Temptation of Dragons' grabbed me quickly and kept me involved throughout. From talking dragons and unicorns, to a religious undertone, it may seem over complicated at times but the author did a masterful job of developing each character and that allowed me to keep track of who was who. The synopsis provided on the back cover fills in many of the spaces without destroying the mystery of the story. At times funny, this female version of Dr. Who meets Harry Potter is a great fantasy read to start your new year.
