Review: The Last Dragon by Jane Yolen
I got this book at NetGalley.
Marketing copy from NetGalley:
Master storyteller Jane Yolen (Owl Moon, Sword of the Rightful King) and celebrated fantasy artist Rebecca Guay (Swamp Thing, Magic: The Gathering) weave a textured and lyrical tale of adventure, homelands, and heroism the hard way.
Two hundred years ago, humans drove the dragons from the islands of May. Now, the last of the dragons rises to wreak havoc anew-with only a healer's daughter and a kite-flying would-be hero standing in its way.
* A compelling coming-of-age fantasy with exquisite fully painted art!
The art in this book is phenomenal! Even the font has been chosen carefully to lend it's artistic edge. I can't wait until this book is in print so I can buy it! I was drawn in by the incredible cover and was hooked with the phrase: "Or so the humans believed."
Love her work and continue to be impressed! Strong characters - wonderful world. Well worth the read!
