Draconian Days

By Sharkerbob, author of Graven

May 9, 2019: Endless Stars is an interesting take on a fantasy story as seen through the eyes of a dragon.

Snug has a great grasp on prose, lending the book a more literary feel than most serials. Likewise I really like seeing the story through the dragons perspective; the use of draconic body language is a nice touch to hammer home that the characters arent human while still giving them a realistic presence. It is also entertaining to see how they percieve other creatures such as humans.

The characters themselves are fine, Kinri makes a decent perspective character. The plot has some degree of intrigue and mystery to it, which help flesh out the dragon society. I’ve heard a few people say that the story can be confusing with terminology, but I really don’t think it is. As long as you pay attention to the context, you should be able to follow along no problem.

If I had a particular criticism it is that the story is paced very slowly. Chapters are long and winding, leading to a definite slow burn as we gradually learn about the world and uncover the plot. But I think that is just a personal gripe. People who prefer that kind of pacing are likely to enjoy being able to just immerse themselves in the story. If anything that lends to the literary feel.

I recommend this for people who like xenofiction and those who would like to see a fantasy story from a different perspective.
