Monday Review by the Book Dragon: Imaginative fantasy for children of all ages

The Book Dragon has finished Tails by W. J. Scott and gives it five claws!
My review: "4.5 stars for a fast-paced, imaginative fantasy! Although the cover and interior illustrations make it seem a children's book, this story will appeal to fantasy readers ages 10-100. I loved the Silvertails, especially the main character Kywah. Their culture had a wonderful Native American feel to it. The details are realistic and sometimes very gritty, so I wouldn't recommend this for a younger child. The pace is almost flawless. A couple of flashbacks slow it down a bit, but it's fascinating information so won't take the reader out of the story. Although there is an ending, several loose threads will compel the reader to continue with the series."
