read á eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Patricia C. WredeS tasty dragon chow by the dragons There is no goodunderstandable reason why he meets the dragon king Just one stranger and then a lizard suggested it Yeah sure that s good enough reason for me to risk my life tooThere was a fake read pulled out of your bum reason to not tell the kid about the magic sword because then wizardenemies will find him magically if he knew but why the hell couldn t he be told that his father was the king asleep or that he needed to be saved That s compelling reason to risk your life and meet the dragon king The weakest of the series and surprisingly the first book written chronologically Daystar doesn t have a lot of emotional reaction to anything much Shiara is rather spectacularly selfish I rarely dislike what would amount to a defiant nderdog character but she s just not enjoyable stars rounded down to 3 starsTamika I ve put the entire review for this final book in the series below Hope you enjoy cause you know I only posted this for you lolNOTE This review contains spoilers for the previous three 3 books in this series Please read those books prior to reading this reviewTalking to Dragons Is The Fourth is the fourth final installation in the Enchanted Forest Chronicles It s been a fun ride and I m a little sad to see it endI found Talking to Dragons to be a lot fun than Calling on Dragons but it never lived Gorgeous and...Hung?! up to the expectation set by the first two books in the Enchanted Forest ChroniclesTalking to Dragons stars Daystar as the MC and starts 16 17 years after then ending of Calling on Dragons Daystar is the son of previous MCseen Cine and King Mendenbar but he does not know this All he knows is that he was the son of a wonderful mother named Cine One day a wizard showed p at Daystar s cottage and in surprise he watches his mother melt the wizard Afterwards Cine comes to Daystar with a magical sword and sends him off into the Enchanted Forest with no instructionI really enjoyed Talking to Dragons but I found itnot as interesting Wrede completely changed the tone of the series by making Daystar a boy removing the gender role reversal theme that the rest of the books in the series have I was disappointed in that but I am glad that there is a male character in the series that young boys can relate to besides Mendenbar There is a strong MC female character in the book a fire witch named Shiara butshe s a major PIA and nothing like the strong and capable Cine witch named Shiara butshe s a major PIA and nothing like the strong and capable Cine is nbelievably rude to everyone and prone to either major attitude or tears at all times When the reader meets Shiara she can t do magic Later she is able to perform magic but she has to be polite first Instead of being happy that she can now perform magic she was being chased by the magicians because she was Guided Approach to Intermediate and Advanced Coding + ICD-10-CM/PCs Coding unable to perform magic and thusnable to defend herself Shiara gets a major attitude and starts bitching Daystar on the other hand is closer to the male euivalent of Cine with a little less sense lol but he s lackingimagination Personality Curiosity Maybe all three Daystar is not really curious as to who he is He s not too concerned that his mother randomly sent him into the forest with a magic sword Daystar isn t particularly interested in most things it mostly feels like the adventures in Talking to Dragons happened to Daystar instead with Daystar Daystar basically takes everything that happens to him in stride with no real surprise Talking to Dragons was fun but it was also missing Understanding Yandere Lovers uite a bit of the whimsy of the previous novels too I would consider Talking to Dragons the most conventional and canon like book in the series Daystar is not an orphan or a farmboy but he s pretty close to the orphan farmboy trope Daystar is given a magic sword and sent on annknown Kings of Paradise (Ash and Sand uest Almost everyone around him knows whowhat he is before he does The outcome of the world the Enchanted Forest is dependent on Daystar learning and doing specific things As I said very canon likeAll in all I enjoyed Talking to Dragons a lot than Calling on Dragons and I m sad to see the series end Regardless of any complaints I had about this book I did enjoy my read I also purchased the series omnibus rere. The edge of the Enchanted Forest and his mother iseen CineBut the tricky part is figuring out what he's supposed to do with the magic sword Where is he supposed to go And why does everyone he meets know who he isIt's going to .
I would have preferred that Wrede end this series with the third bookmoving on to the second generation of characters is Brothers usually not as fun For me the motivation of the main character just didn t seem strong enough and while I realize that this fantasy series is meant to be lighter in tone than some of its dramatic counterparts the characters emotions were a trifle toonderstated for my taste I loved the first two books in this series but the third and this the fourth books seem to be geared to a younger and younger audience And while I love a good middle grade fantasy story I felt this one didn t have the complexity within the plot or characters that I would have liked and that MG READERS CAN HANDLETHE MAIN FOCUS OF THIS TALE readers can handleThe main focus of this tale to be to encourage politeness And while I love that theme it did feel a bit heavy handed at timesFor 16 years of age I felt our protagonist wasn t as mature as he should have been He was kind and The first three books in the series are in 3rd pov but this one is in 1st pov This really makes the flatness of the characters stand outThe main character has no thoughts No signs of intelligence or life The kid is a
16 year old boy scout who only shows the barest of hints of interest in the girl who isyear old boy scout who only shows the barest of hints of interest in the girl who is to be his love interest they end The Little Bit Naughty Book of Wild Sex Positions up together at the end yet it just feels forced as there isn t any flirting or romantic interest expressed in any other way etc throughout the book He s super polite careful and just has no real substance or flaws He just simply isn t human or alive by any meansWhat do I mean when I say that Well there is NO emotional response or thoughts or anything when at the very end of his journey he finds out he s a prince and meets his father a king he just saved for the first time What happens NOTHING Likeeff you so much He s just mild and accepting and goes along with everything No response or feelings or thoughts etc He s not happy overwhelmed or any realistic intense emotionpon seeing his father a king for the first time in his life I hate you authorThe book revolves around keeping all of the information from the king s kid and sending him off into the woods The girl that he runs into is Leaders Eat Last useless and ill tempered USELESS She cries Often Over silly and stupid things Did I say how often she cries I need to emphasizes this here The only thing she does through the entire series is either needs to be protected chitchatting with the main characterstating the obvious is merely there existing crying or some combination of those It s rather strange how suddenly Daystar at the very end of the book shows a high level of romantic interest in her whenntil that point he showed no interest in her Sure she s given a few cookie cutter But I helped roles however they are rather forced I have no idea why anyone would like her or even want her I m assuming it s because he grew La muralla verde up in the middle of the woods with only his mom around and had no friends That is probably the only reason why he could stand her That was too harsh you say Okay I ll explain further why she s such a terrible character At the beginning she s a witch who can tse her magic Then she s able to but with the limitation of only being able to do so after being recently polite Instead of being happy about this she complains and grumbles about it At the beginning she is able to The New Competition use magic 0% of the time Her response to learning that she couldse magic but only after being politenice can be paraphrased by NUOOOOO This is the worst thing ever Yeah this sort of person is pretty much Domestic Slavery Considered as a Scriptural Institution by Francis Wayland and Richard Fuller universally hatedShe is a rude idiot For no reason It s just her typical temperament What a catch DaystarLast but not least there s the fact that there isn t any compelling reason for Daystar to go see the dragon or hang out in the dangerous forest thus the entire book shouldn t have really happened He knows nothing his mum just tells him to go and not come backntil he knows why he was sent away and is given a sword A few random strangers tell him to meet the dragon king and he does soeven though he knows the forest is incredibly dangerous and he believes that he d be eaten Always be polite to dragons That's what Daystar's mother taught him and it's a very wise lesson one that might just help him after his mom hands him a magic sword and kicks him out of the house Especially because his house sits on. ,
Ads will occurWrede wrote Talking to Dragons first in 1985 The rest of the series with gender themes was written afterwards 1990 1991 1993 and then Talking to Dragons was re written and re released I generally don t like time jumps but I ite liked this book Daystar and Shiara were very likable After a weaker 3rd book this one was back to the level of the first two books I m glad I re read this series from my childhood It was a delight So even though this is chronologically the last book in read this series from my childhood It was a delight So even though this is chronologically the last book in series PC Wrede wrote it first the first 3 are preuels So as I was re reading this book I kept thinking why this is really ite impressive the way that PC Wrede created such an elegantly seamless backstory to this book in the form of the first three books And she s so effortlessly woven it into the details of this story when she didn t even really know what was going to be in them But then I got to the end of the book and there s a whole chapter that just explains everything that happened in the first three books I don t know maybe she added that later when they were published But why anyone who had read them would already know what happenedAnyway this book is nice enough although it does feel like the odd one out when I think of Dealing With Dragons being so in your face about Yes Princesses Can but Cine and Morwen are relegated to very supporting characters in this one I do wish Morwen and Telemain had just stayed friends instead of being neatly tied p at the end They make good friends and the characterization of each of them through the series is very strong And since we have such a good idea of who each one of them is I can t imagine why Morwen would want to marry him Or why he would want to marry her honestly BafflingMostly I wish these books were longer That would give PC Wrede room to work things out so that they don t feel rushed And also I m just sad that I m done rereading them already A very entertaining series of fantasy books for children of all ages as the familiar cliche says that have elements of classic fairy tales while the author offers s a hilarious parody of known myths legends and fairy tales Their way of writing is particularly interesting and is based mainly on the very clever confrontation between the heroes each of which has something special Surely in some places this humour is not particularly apt there are some silly moments but in general the series maintains a good level especially in the first two So this series might not be a very great thing but are definitely four books that offer relaxation and put a smile in the face WOW WOW WOW My feelings are just out of control after reading the last book of this series Maybe that s because this is my first series I have ever completed OR maybe I am over happy after reading a series of 4 books because this is my biggest series I had ever started I don t know the exact reason Never mind who cares I just wanted a good series and I think I have read one Before saying anything else I must say this series is totally for children Maybe some teens or adults will not enjoy this because some elements I felt were totally for children But I also must say I enjoyed this no matter whatThe last book was totally The Oswald Reflection unexpected for me At first I couldn tnderstand that I am reading a right book or not because this book started just like a proper story not like a seuel to the 3rd book I think persons who haven t read its previous books will also enjoy this book But if you have read its previous books you will nderstand it better and things may get predictable fo 355 strsThis is my third time reading this
and I took down half a star Not because it bad but because it s ite weak comparing to the first 3 booksThe characters are still good and the humor is still there the whole plot is just so repetitive I was getting bored a lot especially in the middle of the bookAlso the reunion of son and father wasn t very reunion like I wish he would have at least hugged himI have always felt meh about this 4rth book Not bad not good jus t didn t care that much about it My WEBSITEMy INSTAGRAMMy WORDPRESS BLO. Ake a particularly hotheaded fire witch a very verbose lizard and a badly behaved baby dragon to help him figure it all outAnd those good manners certainly won't hurt From the back cover of ISBN 0152046917 9780152046910Length 0638.one and I took down half a star Not because it
