This was so much better than I was expecting! Amel is a disabled teen with high ambitions of being a dragon rider, but of course, there are obstacles in her way, such as social class and mobility issues. As you suspect, the other trainees aren’t very nice to her. But hey! Who needs nice trainees when you get to choose the dragon you’re going to bond with… or in Amel’s case… her dragon chose her. Meet Raolcan, a purple and sleek dragon who has bonded with Amel before their first flight.
What I loved about this story is the number of issues it touched on. I think it is well covered and conveyed while being entertaining. Amel is adorable and I love Raolcan. He has such a calming presence to him. The interactions between the two are great. It does end in a bit of a cliff-hanger, but not an “edge of your seat” cliff-hanger. I look forward to the next installment!
