The Dragons of Winter

The Dragons of Winter. James A. Owen. 2012. Simon & Schuster. 389 pages.

I definitely enjoyed reading The Dragons of Winter by James A. Owen. In this sixth adventure, our Caretakers (well, some of them) travel to the FUTURE. They travel to the future first seen (or experienced) by H.G. Wells (Bert). Well, that's the future they THOUGHT they were heading to. In reality, they end up someplace very, very different, a what-might-be world of darkness. The time they spend in this world is very interesting to me, and they do meet an interesting Bradbury-inspired underground community. But that's just a small part of the story, all the heroes and heroines are desperately trying to save time, to restore the timeline, to fix what has gone so horribly, horribly wrong with the world. There are dozens of characters and plenty of stories including a few flashbacks. (Readers learn of when a certain someone became apprentice to a certain dragon.) There were things that definitely surprised me in this one!!! But overall, I was very satisfied.

I've been new to this reading thing and got fascinated into travels and fantasy books.
So this is really helpful.
Thanks, and keep up the good work.
