Read full description of the books Searching for Dragons:Searching For Dragons, really?
I think in the whole book there was only one dragon.
I was burning with excitement after reading its first book. BUT ugh! This book extinguished every flare of excitement and left me damped. As you know wet things don't catch fire rapidly. Hehehe... I think that was the worst comparison ever made. I don't know how it came in my mind.
Back to the point, this was not the book I was expecting from the author of Dealing With Dragons. beginning was almost similar to first book's beginning with different circumstances..
Be alert! Don't open any spoiler if you are looking forward to read this book or if you don't want any revelation. Otherwise, you can read this review.
--- He is the king of Enchanted Forest.
--- He was very appealing for me. I love this character BUT
(view spoiler)[I felt this character was very similar to Cimorene. Like: Cimorene don't like to do princess' things --- Mendanber also has no interest in formal meeting, parties etc. (hide spoiler)]
Chief Cook and Librarian to Kazul (King of Dragons).
I adore this character
He is a magician. He loves to study different methods or types of magic.
He was a good character. I liked him but he was over curious I think.
One day, Mendanber go for a walk in Enchanted Forest and he runs across a part of Forest which has become dead. There is no magic in its air(as Enchanted Forest is full of magic which float through its air). He finds some dragon's scales in that part. He consults this problem with Morwen (a witch who lives in the Forest) who suggests him to visit Kazul because she can tell him whose dragon those scales are. When he gets to the Kazul's cave he comes to know that Kazul is missing. So Cimorene and Mendaber find her.
THINGS I LIKED
Indeed, this book didn't satisfy me but there were some things I liked:
I liked this very much. We came to know very much about this forest in this book Like: (view spoiler)[ Every place in this Forest changes its location and There is magic in its atmosphere. (hide spoiler)]
I liked how he casted spells in the Forest. I also liked his magical sword except for one thing (see next section).
Writing Style & Dialogues = Awesome! Just as in its first book.
I liked them as villains except for one thing (see next section).
THINGS I DIDN'T LIKE
To be honest, I didn't like how they saved Kazul.
Mendanber's Magical Sword
This book was keep telling us that his sword is leaking magic so that any magical creature can trace them and can cause harm BUT! There was no such thing happened. They completed their journey without any serious problems.
They are written as very clever BUT they still hadn't found a way to get rid of soapy water which melts them every time. OR book didn't tell us they were even trying to solve this or not. Every time they appeared, they were melted by Cimorene or her friends.
According to facts I mentioned above I would give:
* 3.2 Dull Stars *
I think its first book was far better than this. This book hadn't something which could grip me except for MAGIC! I loved it. That's why I gave this slightly above 3 stars. Excluding magic my rating is 2.5 stars because this book wasn't that bad to give 2 stars.
I really hope its 3rd book will be better than this. It should be!
Please point out my mistakes and my misunderstandings about this book. I would be happy to see that!
Thanks for your attention!
Read information about the authorPatricia Collins Wrede was born in Chicago, Illinois and is the eldest of five children. She started writing in seventh grade. She attended Carleton College in Minnesota, where she majored in Biology and managed to avoid taking any English courses at all. She began work on her first novel, Shadow Magic, just after graduating from college in 1974. She finished it five years later and started her second book at once, having become permanently hooked on writing by this time.
Patricia received her M.B.A. from the University of Minnesota in 1977.
She worked for several years as a financial analyst and accountant, first with the Minnesota Hospital Association, then with B. Dalton Booksellers, and finally at the Dayton Hudson Corporation headquarters.
Patricia finished her first novel in late 1978. In January, 1980, Pamela Dean, Emma Bull, Will Shetterly, Steven Brust, Nate Bucklin, and Patricia Wrede -- all, at that point, hopeful but unpublished -- formed the writer's group that later became known as "The Scribblies." In April of 1980, Patricia's first novel sold to Ace Books. It came out at last in 1982, which is the year she met Lillian Stewart Carl (who introduced her to Lois McMaster Bujold by mail).
In 1985, shortly before the publication of her fifth book, she left the world of the gainfully employed to try winging it on her own.
Her interests include sewing, embroidery, desultory attempts at gardening, chocolate, not mowing the lawn, High Tea, and, of course, reading.
She is a vegetarian, and currently lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota with her cats, Merlin, Brisen, and Nimue. She has no children, but as of this writing, she does have four nieces and four nephews ranging in age from seven months to twelve years old and in geographical location from Maine to Alabama.
She has published twelve and a half books:
Shadow Magic, Daughter of Witches, The Seven Towers, Talking to Dragons, The Harp of Imach Thyssel, Caught in Crystal, Snow White and Rose Red, Dealing with Dragons, Mairelon the Magician, Searching for Dragons, Calling on Dragons, The Raven Ring, and a collaboration with fellow Minneapolis author Caroline Stevermer, Sorcery and Cecelia, as well as a collection of short stories titled Book of Enchantments. She is also part of the Liavek shared-world anthology.
