One thought on “What If? Magazine reviews Draco’s Child”
Just finished Draco’s Child (picked it up at Prairie Horizons). I don’t read a lot of fantasy, but I enjoyed the layers in this, the imaginative world-building, and all the intense sensory detail. I kept seeing it like a movie because of the vivid descriptions. The writing is also very good. Ex. from p. 132 “She hadn’t realized how heavy her secret was until Sidran held half of it.” Highly recommended.
