Call of the Dragon
Return to Avalore Book 1
Rating and Recommendation
Rating: 4 1/2 teacups
Book Club Worthy: Yes in Genre appropriate club
Will Rhia find this Avalore where she is Queen with Drake’s help or will the beasts kill them both as they did her mother before they can find safety?
Adams gives a good start to what seems a promising series. It does have a wobble here and there in the story where I wish I knew a little more about the characters and a little more about Avalore itself. As it is the beginning of the series I am sure there is room to learn these things and much more. As a whole it kept my interest. It was a quick read as the action for the most part was fast paced.
As I did enjoy it as much as I did regardless of the above mentioned items, I did give it a 4. If I were allowed I would give it a 4 ½ star rating. I do want to know more about this world and her brothers, father, and friends so am anticipating some of these answers in the second book of Avalore. I do find it could be a good book club book as there is material there in the correct genres like fantasy or sci-fi. I definitely recommend this book for anyone in those groups especially. I will caution, in a good way, there is a little adult pleasure for the grown up crowd.
Is this book for you? Yes - you like adult romance, you love sci-fi, paranormal, fantasy, mystery, suspense and thriller novels, even more so if you like series that do not leave you on a cliffhanger.

* If you buy this book through the above link money is generated, however, donated to the non-profit American Association of University Women (AAUW).
AAUW works empowering women, since 1881, standing up for causes in the areas of educational, social, economic and political issues especially important to women. Marie Currie was one of the first beneficiaries of the group that would become AAUW receiving monetary help to attend college. I am a proud member and believe that the profit from books seems a fitting donation.
