The Dragon Dreamer takes place in a mythical world devoid of humans. This book follows Scree, an octopus, and Arak, a dragon. Their paths collide when Arak crashes with a torn wing on an iceberg where Scree finds him and nurses him back to health. The friendship they forge brings their two cultures together, and the two species begin to face problems as one. The dragons help protect the octopi from giant squids, and the octopi aid the dragons in their search for copper- a metal vital to the dragons' survival. Arak also faces social issues at home. He is taunted for being a dreamer, hence the title "The Dragon Dreamer", and he isn't making much headway in his quest to get the girl. Most problems the two tribes face are quickly overcome, but the prevailing issue is whether or not copper can be found to save the dragons.

Opinion: 

I did not enjoy reading this book. The plot was repetitive; a problem arises, the dragons and octopi work together to solve it, and after a few mistakes, the conflict is resolved with minimal loss. There is little to no suspense, and the book became predictable after a few chapters. The characters were not very well developed, and I did not get attached to them. The Dragon Dreamer would please a younger audience, but I think anyone who is 11 years old and up would be easily bored by this book.

Content Rating:

Content rating - nothing offensive

Explain your content rating: 

I said there was nothing offensive in this book because it does not touch on most controversial topics, and the little romance in the book is not talked about at great length and does not give rise to any intimate scenes.
