Talon and the Dragons of Crinnelia by Diana Metz is the first book in The Prophecy of the Dragons trilogy. We follow Talon in this coming of age story on his quest to becoming a wizard.
I would have really enjoyed this story, but there were flaws that hindered that for me. There were times when a certain character was referred to as she or her, then the next mention of said character would be him or he. There were also quite a bit of grammatical errors that interfered with the flow of my reading.
I chose this book as part of my Wild Goose Chase Reading Challenge at The Bookshelf Gargoyle blog. You can read more about that here:
