Covid-19 Day 43

(Dragonlands #1)
by Megg Jensen (2014)

The mystery enshrouding Hutton’s Bridge is as impenetrable as the fog that descended at its borders eighty years ago. Each year, three villagers enter the mist searching for answers. No one ever returns.

While this feels like a young adult book, it does take on some serious themes of sex, violence and leadership. The main protagonists are young, about 19 so probably aimed at a younger audience. The story, while it takes its time is well paced and slowly reveals the world to the reader. While the first of five, it does have a suitable satisfying climax to the ending.

There aren’t many dragons so far, but there are hints that there will be more.

The book is well written, with easy to read flowing prose and not a single mistake. This author knows how to proof read, or has help.
