From Goodreads: In a world full of anomalies such as the platypus and self reproducing Komodo dragon, is the human race willing to accept that dragons may be real? Sapien Draconi-human-dragon shape shifters-all over the world face this dilemma every day. The question has become life and death as their species is plagued with unexpected and unwanted shifting in the most unlikely of places. The Ancient Ones-full-blooded dragons-can offer advice, but few seem to put forward workable solutions to the problem. The fate of the shape shifters hangs in the balance, and an answer must be found before the Homo Sapiens find, dissect, and hunt Sapien Draconi to extinction.
This novel is very well written. It’s funny and the words flow and are very easy and fun to read. The whole concept of the novel, the shape-shifting dragons, is a unique twist on classic fantasy. I really enjoyed reading about the challenges these kind of creatures would go through, especially ones that didn’t know they had the ability to shift. There were lots of characters in this story that I really found myself caring about. The only problem I found was that there were so many different stories going on that I had trouble keeping track sometimes. All of them were very entertaining and fun to read, it just became hard to keep up with the number of characters and story lines that were happening simultaneously. At the end of the novel, they did all seem to tie together, but not everything seemed resolved to me. I can say I enjoyed all of the stories though, and would definitely read the next one. I would recommend this to any fantasy lover. It is also set in modern day, so these dragons have the availability of the internet to keep in communication with each other. I thought this added a fun aspect to a fantasy novel, especially one involving dragons, that you don’t normally see. I would definitely recommend this book, with only the warning that it can become confusing with all of the different story lines. 🙂
