Mistress of Dragons: Dragons gone bad

Mistress of Dragons is an interesting story with some likable heroes and excellent villains. The heroes are the humans and their dragon allies, but the humans don’t realize that dragons are their friends because the villains are a couple of dragons gone bad. Very bad. The good dragons concoct a plot which uses humans to conquer the bad dragons. Mistress ends with an unexpected plot twist.

This story is well-told, though it annoys me how often Weis omits conjunctions from her sentences. But if that doesn’t bug you, and you don’t mind a rape scene and a lesbian love affair, you’ll probably enjoy this book. I listened to it on audiobook and it was read well and the story is compelling enough that I’ve ordered the second one in audiobook format, too. I’m going to give it a chance, but I’m not so hooked that I can’t drop it in the middle if it doesn’t keep me entertained.
