About Love In The Time Of Dragons:

When it comes to love, one woman is scaling back her expectations…

Tully Sullivan is just like any other suburban mom-except she’s just woken up in a strange place surrounded by strange people who keep insisting that they’re dragons-and that she’s one too.

I picked up this book merely because I liked its cover. And it was on sale at Asda‘s. And it got dragons in it. But when I got home and read the synopsis at the back, my interest waned… so the book stayed in the TBR bookcase for months on end… I guess I’m not much fan of the “urban girl denial queen”… However when I finally read it, it was wonderful! The book had me bursting out in laughter… turning pages quickly… the character development is masterful… but then again, I love alpha heroes. Until I got about halfway through and the holes in the story started to become apparent. The plot just about killed everything! It’s so weak and silly it dragged the entire book down. It is exasperating to realize as you read through the book. Overall, I can’t really give this book a 1 since the author’s voice is very good, but I found the story too insubstantial, so I’d settle for a 3 out of 5.

Empirical Evaluation:
Story Telling Quality = 4.5
Character Development = 4.5
World Building = 3
Plot = 1
Pace = 3.5
Ending = 2.5

Overall Rating: 3 out of 5 cherries

  3. Wow. That's a bad plot. I have a book by this author that's steampunk. I've had it for ages now and still haven't got to reading it. Shame on me. I need to get to it. Thanks for the thoughts on this one.
