The Drache Girl - 5 Star Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking Adventure!, 20 Mar 2011

By S. Horrigan (London) - See all my reviews

This review is from: The Drache Girl (Senta and the Steel Dragon) (Kindle Edition)
This series is set in an alternate version of a Victorian world that is similar to but not quite the same as Great Britain of the late 1800s only with magic, sorceresses, wizards, dragons, dinosaurs and lizard men!

In this, the third book of the series, the colony at Port Dechantagne has now been established for almost four years. The first settlers who came to seek their fortune on a new continent are now reaping the rewards of their labours. The colony is growing wealthy and starting to attract the attention of powerful people.

Senta now aged twelve years is growing up quickly and her natural skills as a sorceress are becoming more powerful with every day that passes. Senta and the dragon Bessemer who is now the size of a small horse, are loved by many, feared by some, but ignored by no one!

Political intrigue, treason, a native uprising, the threat of war both in the new world and at home, first love, and a great "magic duel" all feature in another absolutely cracking instalment of this multi-genre adventure series.

Once again the presentation of this book on the Kindle is first class.

Overall: 5 stars - I really didn't want to put this book down. Senta and the Steel Dragon is fast becoming one of my favourite series for a long time! I hope that we don't have to wait too long for part 4!

Thanks so much!
