    1 thought on “Talking to Dragons”

    1. 3.5/5 strsThis is my third time reading this one, and I took down half a star. Not because it's bad, but because it's quite weak comparing to the first 3 books.The characters are still good and the humor is still there - the whole plot is just so repetitive. I was getting bored a lot, especially in the middle of the book.Also, the reunion of son and father wasn't very reunion like? I wish he would have at least hugged him.I have always felt meh about this 4rth book. Not bad, not good - jus't did [...]

    2. WOW WOW WOW ! My feelings are just out of control after reading the last book of this series. Maybe that's because this is my first series I have ever completed OR maybe I am over happy after reading a series of 4 books because this is my biggest series I had ever started. I don't know the exact reason. Never mind, who cares! I just wanted a good series and I think I have read one. Before saying anything else I must say this series is totally for children. Maybe some teens or adults will not enj [...]

    3. bookslifewine/r-talking-to3.5 stars rounded down to 3 starsTamika, I've put the entire review for this final book in the series below. Hope you enjoy (cause you know I only posted this for you, lol)!NOTE: This review contains spoilers for the previous three (3) books in this series. Please read those books prior to reading this review.Talking to Dragons is the fourth and final installation in the Enchanted Forest Chronicles. It's been a fun ride and I'm a little sad to see it end.I found Talking [...]

    4. A very entertaining series of fantasy books for children - of all ages, as the familiar cliche says - that have many elements of classic fairy tales while the author offers us a hilarious parody of well-known myths, legends and fairy tales. Their way of writing is particularly interesting and is based mainly on the very clever confrontation between the heroes, each of which has something special. Surely in some places this humour is not particularly apt, there are some silly moments but in gener [...]

    5. This series has been surprisingly wonderful! I still believe that the best book was the first one but the rest were equally magnificent. The books were light and chucklesome. Never once did I feel that things were slow or boring in all 4 books and I was glued to the spot reading. The story flowed effortlessly and managed to make perfect sense even with all the ridiculousness.The last book takes place roughly 16 years after the third one. This time it’s Cimorene’s son, Daystar, we follow as h [...]

    6. So even though this is chronologically the last book in the series, PC Wrede wrote it first - the first 3 are prequels. So as I was re-reading this book I kept thinking "why, this is really quite impressive the way that PC Wrede created such an elegantly seamless backstory to this book in the form of the first three books! And she's so effortlessly woven it into the details of this story when she didn't even really know what was going to be in them!" But then I got to the end of the book and the [...]

    7. I would have preferred that Wrede end this series with the third on to the second generation of characters is usually not as fun. For me, the motivation of the main character just didn't seem strong enough, and while I realize that this fantasy series is meant to be lighter in tone than some of its more dramatic counterparts, the characters' emotions were a trifle too understated for my taste.

    8. This book made me so so happy right when I needed it. It's hilarious, I love the new mc's and a new dragon and kitten! Will there ever be more??

    9. The first three books in the series are in 3rd pov, but this one is in 1st pov. This really makes the flatness of the characters stand out.The main character has no thoughts. No signs of intelligence or life. The kid is a 16 year old boy scout who only shows the barest of hints of interest in the girl who is suppose to be his love interest [they end up together at the end yet it just feels forced as there isn't any flirting or romantic interest expressed in any other way etc throughout the book) [...]

    10. I loved the first three. While this one had great humour the protagonist seemed too shallow for my liking, and the denouement too trite. A super series overall, somewhat dragged down by this final volume.

    11. When I first read the blurb about this book and realized it would be about Cimorene's son, I was worried. Then I started reading and it was also in the first person, which was another change. However, I quickly realized that I enjoyed this book even better than the previous three in the trilogy, though it didn't have so much of the new magical ideas and items as the other ones.Daystar is now a teen and it's time for him to go help free his father, who has been magically bound his entire life. Un [...]

    12. I loved the first two books in this series, but the third and this, the fourth, books, seem to be geared to a younger and younger audience. And while I love a good middle grade fantasy story, I felt this one didn't have the complexity within the plot or characters that I would have liked, and that MG readers can handle.The main focus of this tale seemed to be to encourage politeness. And while I love that theme, it did feel a bit heavy handed at times.For 16 years of age, I felt our protagonist [...]

    13. In book 4 of the Enchanted Forest Chronicles, the narrator is Daystar, Cimorene's son. He is on a sent on a quest with a magical sword. Along the way, he meets evil wizards, a fire witch named Shiara, and a young talking dragon.The first time I started this book, I had not read any of the others. I read about 30 pages in a restaurant while waiting for my food because it was the only book I had with me. I didn't finish because I don't really like to read things out of order - but I was intrigued [...]

    14. Right now I'm a bit confused.The story was alright but I felt like it wasn't as good as the other books. By 'good' I mean, well-plotted, funny or interesting. There were still some twists to the usual fairy tales but not as much as before and I got the feeling that it was mainly about Daystar and his sword. This is because (view spoiler)[ a voice keeps saying 'Hail the Bearer of the Sword!' and things like that which end up being redundant(hide spoiler)]Another thing which left me confused:The e [...]

    15. YA Fantasy. Book three in this series ends on a cliffhanger and book four picks up sixteen years later. That was unexpected. We've also got a new narrator for this one: Daystar, a very polite, logical young man, whose mother slaps a sword in his hand and sends him off into the Enchanted Forest one day without really telling him why. His mother is, of course, Queen Cimorene, and his dad's off in a magical coma, but Daystar doesn't know any of that. He's just trying to make sense of this sudden ne [...]

    16. This wonderful amazing phenomenal book is doubtless one of my favorites ever to grace my bookshelf! I first read it as a young fifth or sixth grader, and soon I had read it multiple times. The fantasy setting is definitely for kids. It's light, magical, and generally fun. The "bad" characters are bad in a fairy-tale kind of way, and yet the archetypal hero and heroine's roles are complex enough to be interesting. This novel takes many fairy-tale stereotypes and turns them on their heads. That's [...]

    17. It's been sixteen years since the events in Calling On Dragons and Daystar has been raised by his mother Cimorene, not knowing his true heritage. When the wizards finally track them down, Cimorene sends Daystar with the magical sword into the Enchanted Forest on a mysterious quest.This was a little different, with Daystar being the first-person narrator. He's a very interesting narrator, and brings a fresh perspective on things. I was a little annoyed that no one would tell him anything and ever [...]

    18. 4.75 stars! Oh, I did so enjoy this conclusion, despite the fact I had to get used to the narration AND I did get a bit peevish about the way some of the things unfold. Still a great deal of fun though, and I loved the new characters a lot!

    19. I enjoyed the first book in this series (Dealing with Dragons), but I became increasingly disappointed with the series. The last book was better than the third, but still lacked the quirky originality that I loved in the first book.

    20. The gripping conclusion to the Enchanted Forest Chronicles does its best to wrap everything up and it was a lot of fun to read. My daughter and I have some great inside jokes (“alas, and woe is me, for I am in great distress”) and she especially liked being more omniscient than the protagonist. But it’s overly wordy and the way Daystar is polite to a fault made me want to shake him. Shiara is way more interesting. Also, I want WAY more details about Cimorene raising Daystar in exile as a s [...]

    21. Another full cast recording that made this tale even more enjoyable than when I first read it several years ago. The entire series would be a great family read, especially if the adults helped a bit with the pronunciation of the character's names, and there are enough adventures to intrigue both boys and girls.

    22. Funny, I didn't quite love this one as much as the other 3. It was neat to see how the author used the prequels I read to set up for the original story in this oneat she actually wrote first. I wonder if I would've been as engulfed in the story. Knowing all the back story definitely added to this one. I'm glad I stuck through all 4 books to the endbut my interest was lacking a tiny bit toward the end of this one, so I'm happy to move on!

    23. I'm really glad I read these in chronological order, and not published order I'm quite sure I wouldn't have bothered with the other three if I'd read this first. It's just alot less fun, and more just a generic fantasy coming of age story and not even a particularly good one. Daystar was far less likeable than Cimorene et al, and Shiara was downright annoying. I'm happy to know how the story ends, but really there's no question that the story and characters in the trilogy (which are all just min [...]

    24. This was probably my favorite installment in the series. The plot was more purposeful than in the previous books, and there were not any incredibly annoying magical bunnies.

    25. All’s well that ends well. I found this predictable. I did enjoy how polite Daystar was to everyone, but I began to despise Shiara by the end. Traveling with someone like her in an enchanted forest? Someone who refuses to be polite even after, clearly, the bushes have made their opinion known on her prior rudeness? (I mean, if the bushes don’t like you…) She couldn’t even be grudgingly polite to the bushes after it was clear why they weren’t letting her out! In an enchanted forest, it [...]

    26. Finished! While I enjoyed this entire series, in a lot of ways I thought that Talking to Dragons was the weakest of the four books. Poor Daystar is essentially thrown into the deep end of the pool - er, Enchanted Forest - with no clue what's going on and stumbles around chancing on the right people and creatures and tasks and scraps of information. And he was sooooo nice. So nice, in fact, that he was a bit bland. So many elements of the story just kind of "appeared" at the right time. I mean, i [...]

    27. Argh. Okay, here's my beef - this book makes no sense in light of the first three! It's a good book on its own. And I know that it was published first, which is why there are so many inconsistencies but reading the series in the designated order, I was doing double-takes throughout this entire book. It's not really fair, but still *flails*Okay, so yeah - Wrede completely and utterly failed at having the previous series lead up to this book, or at sufficiently revising this one. One of the bigges [...]
