I am not an avid reader at all. I have read maybe 10-12 books in my entire life (I’m almost 40), because I’ve always preferred movies. I started reading this book simply because the of title and cover art work. It is slow at the start but books 2 & 3 are packed with action and excitement! I’m starting book 4, The Dragon’s Sword, next and I can’t wait to get started reading it!
