'Draken' by S B Nova, was a reasonably good fantasy tale of adventure, mystery and identity (written for the YA demographic and to be enjoyed by older readers, too). I liked the descriptive imagery of the magical world and the characters were interestingly flawed. Nova's writing was good at times and you could tell the author has the makings of a natural story-teller. But the beginning of the book was sluggish and a few other sections were clumsy or overwritten, imo. 'Draken' was a good bit of escapism, but was not as tight and well written as 'A Kingdom of Exiles'. Still worth a read for fans, though. As it's part of a series the plot and characters will develop in the future, no doubt.
The world S.B Nova creates is truly a unique place to emerse yourself in. I was so disappointed to have the book end and having read Draken I can’t wait too see what else she has in store. A book full of adventure, mystery and magic. Really loved this
