Voices of Dragons - Carrie Vaughn I picked this book up because I enjoy the author’s adult urban fantasy series, the Kitty Norville books. This was a huge disappointment. It felt way too long for what it was. Another reviewer said that it was a short story idea that was undeservedly turned into a novel, and I wholeheartedly agree. It ended just when things were getting interesting too. This is one of those books where, if I were critiquing it, I might have gently taken the author aside and asked whether this might not be one of those circumstances where the story that was actually meant to be told was the sequel, and not this book at all, which was all just set-up for the really interesting book.(Also posted to my blog, http://www.elenagleason.com)
