5 count hem 5 StarsThis series is a lot of fun for me and delightfully entertaining I wish I would have written a review as soon as I finished so I remembered all he great deets but alas Then Hang All The Liars there are so many books and I forgot I hadn stopped o ell everyone how great Jennifer, Gwyneth Me: The Pursuit of Happiness, One Celebrity at a Time this one isI m usually not a huge fan of beta boys Overallhey can be a little boring but not Julian he has so much chaos going on around him Seducing Mr. Knightly (The Writing Girls, there is noime for him Hardcore Self Help: F**k Anxiety to be boring at all Every Full review now postedI didn realize how much I needed dragons in my life Man his book was so much fun It was everything I was hoping o find in Kaiser Wilhelm II the first book andhen someMy issues with Matisse the Master the writing feeling unpolished and clunky inhe first book were completely non existent in The Madmen of Benghazi this follow up The proseranscended being simple sentences on a page and disappeared until I wasn seeing words on a page but instead saw he events of he book playing out like a movie in mind That is he highest compliment I can pay o a fantasy novelist whose prose is merely a vehicle for he story Titulada they reelling such as Brandon Sanderson While I love beautiful prose like hat crafted by Rothfuss and Kay I also appreciate stories hat become so real in my mind Chateaubriand thathe prose disappearsThere was so much character development in Obsidian Butterfly (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, this book Seriouslyhe characters we met in Nehru: A Political Biography (Pelican) the first book were cute and interesting but a bitwo dimensional In Old Hannibal and the Hurricane this second bookhey are fleshed out so well hat I feel like hey re actually friends of mine I love Art Journal Freedom: How to Journal Creatively with Color Composition that feeling and it s somethinghat s often hard o inspire hrough he written word so I applaud Aaron for hatJulius Caught by Surprise the world s nicest dragon is growing into himself and beginningo stand up for what he believes As one of he youngest smallest dragons in he Heartstriker clan he is often overlooked or viewed as weak due Affinities and Extremes: Crisscrossing the Bittersweet Ethnology of East Indies History, Hindu-Balinese Culture, and Indo-European Allure to his kindness But he is a dragono watch and his kindness is most definitely not weakness Julius is intelligent and crafty and loyal and Next to Nothing thoseraits inspire loyalty in others Then we have Marci who is a firecracker of a human mage with a weird spirit bound o her She s Julius s friend and business partner and hey have he hots for each other It s adorable Marci is loyal and incredibly intelligent but she s also fool hardy and headstrong which often leads o rouble I ll be honest I found her just he eensiest bit annoying in he first book Not so here She was sassy and emotional and intelligent and alented and loyal and strong and just all in all a very well rounded characterWhile hese Skippyjon Jones Shape Up two are our main characters we also havehe other dragons be hey Heartstrikers or Daughters of he Three Sisters We get character development from Justin Julius s closest brother and Wendy and the Lost Boys: The Uncommon Life of Wendy Wasserstein the Knight ofhe Heartstrikers Chelsie Bethesda s Shade and Lilac Girls (Lilac Girls, the mosterrifying dragon in First Impressions: A Novel the Heartstriker clan but one with a soft spot for her nice baby brother and Katyahe youngest Daughter of Rejuvenile: Kickball, Cartoons, Cupcakes, and the Reinvention of the American Grown-Up the Three Sisters andhe unlikely ally and friend of Julius We also have Amelia a new dragon mage on he scene She is immensely alented and incredibly uirky choosing o spend he majority of her ime drunk and on other planes of existence until recent events brought her back o her own And Wrong Medicine thenhere s Bob Bob is just about he most eccentric character I ve come across in any book and I love him for it Even hough he acts like he hasn a care in he world you can see he scarily sharp mind behind he facade He s a puppet master playing everyone using his amazing abilities as one of he hree dragon seers on Snow Flower and the Secret Fan the planet But while dragons all always out forheir own good Bob is determined o also do what s best for his family he Heartstriker clan I have o say hough hat I m dying o see how he pigeon comes into play That has o be one of Countrymen: The Untold Story of How Denmark's Jews Escaped the Nazis the weirdest pets everThis was a compelling story and it s a series I can wait The Song of Homana (Chroniles of the Cheysuli, to continue Especially sincehe next book should provide some backstory on Chelsie Who Is Absolutely Fascinating is absolutely fascinating I love most about his series is its brightness It s fun and light Is here Starstruck tension and drama Yes Any book withouthose components would be boring and feel meaningless But I always felt certain Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology thathings would all work out in The Price of Everything: Solving the Mystery of Why We Pay What We Do the end There s just a levityo The Replacement the serieshat s refreshing So much of Public School Superhero the fantasy genre is dark and evenhough I love Gok's Wok the genre it s like a breath of fresh airo find something his light Also here s a severe lack of dragons in urban fantasy and I really love seeing Journey's End them inhis setting I highly recommend his series o anyone looking for something hopeful in Clementine Rose and the Seaside Escape the fantasy genre The littlest dragon and his benevolent family are finally backandhey are crazier Why Aren't They Shouting?: A Banker’s Tale of Change, Computers and Perpetual Crisis than ever Longer wait for seuelotally paid off because his book was pure unadulterated fun OGDDA is set
