I liked it all right. The first half of the book moved a little slowly and was mostly about getting the reader acquainted with the world. She did do a pretty good job capturing the wonder of dragons. Jakkin himself is a little boring. Later, when Akki and Sarkkhan start to play a greater role, the book gets more interesting, since these characters have more engaging backgrounds and personalities, and also tend to scheme more, and more intricately.
This is the first book in the Pit Dragon series; there are three more books after it, so far. I'm interested enough to pick up the second book next time I'm in the mood for YA, but I'll probably be getting it from the library.
I mean, it's obvious it's about a boy raisiing a dragon, right? And it's a fighting dragon so there better at least be a first fight, right? And that's it. Story ends. And after some really decent writing and etceteras it's all just tied up in one very hurried conversation. That's it. I wasn't left wanting more. I enjoyed it, but that's all.
