Okay so I am a big nerdy fan of The Dragonriders of Pern series by Anne McCaffrey so within minutes of starting this I was hooked. Dragon riders, a connection between dragon and rider - somesimilarities for sure. In this book there is an evil rider who is searching for a mysterious herb and can control dragons and even their riders.
Personally, I enjoyed the book quite a bit but...
For kids a book usually has main characters their age - in this book, although the main rider starts out at 10 he is 25 for most of the book. The main evil character - we never really find out where he came from or how he got the power he had. Duskya didn't get as much "screen time" as Ruskya and yet she figured prominantly in the epilogue. Just a few nagging things that made the book not quite as good as I would like.
