This book has no listed page numbers, nor does it tell you how many pages are in the book, just the size of the file. The first 2% of the book is a fairly detailed synopsis of books 1 and 2 in this series, as written by the author. It also explains how she came to write the books. While interesting in a way, I found myself wondering why she seemed to be giving away what sounded like important plot points before the reader had even seen chapter 1. This book contains both Book 1 and Book 2.
Falcon's little brother goes from being called Toody to Toady and back again. Not sure which name was the proper one. There are also other misspelled words scattered throughout, at one point instead of using the letter "I" there is a "1". But all of these would be mostly easily overlooked.
Except. In other books that I have read about people who have found or been given dragon eggs, the main character always wants to keep the dragon a secret to protect it. And Falcon does as well, until the egg is hatched. Once Egg has hatched, and starts growing, Falcon seems to totally forget about keeping her a secret! She's mad because the adults move Egg out of the apartment and into a secluded aviary. Even though Egg had been getting so hot she was starting to burn things in the apartment.
She buys her a collar and leash to take Egg for walks. The adults try telling her it's a bad idea, not safe for Egg because people might take her away and use her for scientific study. But all Falcon seems to do is get more and more stubborn and "I found her, she's mine!" (not a direct quote.)
By the 34% mark in the book, I was starting to cringe and be afraid something bad was going to happen to Egg. Falcon kept telling the others that Egg was not a pet, and yet she kept treating Egg like a pet dog. She does eventually do right by Egg, but all in all, I just wasn't interested in reading book 2.
I normally love dragon books, especially ones where eggs are found by children and hatched. So I really wanted to love this book, but I just couldn't.
