i received a copy of dragon lake, via audiobook, from the author in exchange for an honest review.
can we take a moment to discuss how beautiful the cover for dragon lake is 😍😍😍 the colours, the font, everything!
firstly, the story itself was so refreshing compared to other fairytale retellings. this one was much darker than the usual ones i’ve read. i also really enjoyed the use of the dragon. (i don’t believe there was a dragon in the original?? i could be wrong … )
the writing style was very nice and the words flowed nicely. I felt the profanity was neatly woven in, however I would’ve preferred it without. the narrator did an excellent job bringing the characters and the story to life.
overall, I wish this was longer, so I could get a better feel for the characters and so the backstory could’ve been elaborated on more, but i still really enjoyed it.
