I really enjoyed this. I didn't know it was going to be a dragon book -- the excerpt I read mentioned magic, but not what kind -- but it was very interesting. It didn't end up going the direction I thought it would, but it was good regardless. I do have a problem with the fact that Devin was fighting Salin at the end and he wasn't even thinking about Tina, though he thought he was going to die. I'm also not sure why Tina thought he was dead. But I liked Tina... she definitely made the best of the hand she was dealt.
