Resnick has an interesting proposition: What if there were dragons in the New World? And how would the presence
George Washington has sent his old friend Daniel Boone to the west to find--and tame--the largest dragons on the continent as part of a last-ditch effort to defeat the British. At the same time, he's assigned young Ephram Eakins the task of training another breed of dragons to carry messages across enemy lines, as well as to misdirect the British forces long enough for Daniel Boone and his reinforcements to arrive.
Told from the perspective of four different yet pivotal characters, this book has an engaging and personable style. While the characterization is a bit flat, it doesn't really affect the book as a whole, thanks to the incredibly interesting story--and alternate world--that Resnick has constructed.
