Book Review: Dragon and Thief

Dragon and Thief by Timothy Zahn

Dragon and Thief (Dragonback, #1)
by Timothy Zahn (Goodreads Author)

4 out of 5 stars

I was really surprised by this book! I was expecting your typical dragon story, but this is completely different from anything I’ve ever read about. It’s half dragon-fantasy, part science-fiction space wars, part murder mystery, with a smattering of corporate espionage.
The writing is fast-paced and perfectly crafted. Difficult to put down once you’ve started reading.

Fantastic story and I loved loved the characters so much! Draycos is an especially fascinating character. Every word he says is dripping with meaning. It amazes me that he’s so calm and wise all the time, when you know his whole world is falling apart. I loved seeing him trying to adapt to the language and culture of Jack’s side of the universe. Jack is clever and full of nerve and a bit sassy too. Incredibly well-rounded characters, likeable and… the word that comes to mind is…”spicey”.

Update: Reading this for the second time, I enjoyed it just as much as the first time! I’m going to dive into the rest of the series immediately!
