peer-reviewed research in journals such as the Bulletin for the American
Meteorological Society, but his foray into creative writing did not occur
until the age of thirty-four when he began writing a creative paper

This book pulls no punches. From the very beginning we are drawn into two parallel worlds, one of suburban American college and another of dragons and mythical beasts who live alongside their human counterparts. This is actually the fourth
book in the series and in theory can be read as a standalone. However, I found that each chapter had new characters whose history I felt I should know and by the end of the first few chapters I seriously needed to take a break and catch my breath. I would
have enjoyed the story more I’m sure if I’d read the series in order. Roy Huff shows fantastic imagination that will appeal to YA readers and others and if you love sci-fi then this series is one that will keep you hooked.
