Dragon Healer

The premise of Dragon Healer is excellent, and its telling just as good. Tani is alone. Her parents have succumbed to an illness that she couldnít cure, but she has become adept at making salves and helping those around her with their minor ailments. King Grelas has a problem he hopes she can help with. His dragons are falling ill. Can this healer cure them? He sends his son, Jerin, to find her and bring her to them.

Rachel Reeves has done an excellent job of telling this story. It is engaging and interesting. It pulls the reader in instantly with many vivid descriptions and flowing dialogue. Even the dragonís speeches are intriguing, as is the relationship with Jerinís dragon. The two share something special, and it is easy to see, and feel, this unique bond. Jerinís bond with the King is interesting as well. His respect for his father is nearly tangible, and I liked that about this story. I saw everything in this story, and it was all pleasurable. Time slipped by as I read this, and before I wanted it to be, it was over. Dragon Healer pulled me into the world of dragons and elves and I loved every minute of it!
