The Dragon Within by Cindy Lyle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
I absolutely love the world created by Cindy Lyle in The Dragon Within. You can almost feel the Tolkein influences on this work but at the same time its entirely her own.
We follow the life of Karrah, who is a strong female character, as she begins the fight against the evil that plagues Eiddoril and her quest for who she really is. This story is told not only from her point of view but we also see the story from the opposing view of the Dark Lord and also from those around her. The characters surrounding her, even though they aren't main characters, they are so vital and so full of spirit that they are a very important part of this story. The character of Deneoes, the Ywari that befriends Karrah, is by far my favorite character as he adds so much humor to this story.
This story is told in a wonderful manner as Karrah's memories return to her we also learn the history of Eiddoril. This is a story that has it all dragons and giants, magic and gods, what more could you as for? I loved it and can hardly wait to see how this story continues. I would recommend this to all fans of fantasy especially if you like dragons. And those of us who enjoy Tolkein will like this one as well.
