I’ve been excited by the prospect of firefighters fighting DRAGONS ever since that word combination hit my feed, back before Grigsby had released his debut. And what a debut. The author is an absolute natural, with the casual ease Stephen King is famous for, along with some upper grade characterization along some very cool futuristic toys, indeed. The dialogue flows like water, the descriptions, while not exactly *crisp* give you a general idea of where the people are at any given moment. And humor. I really loved the humor and overall playfulness in the author’s eye even while telling a story that had some very serious parts. All threads were sewn up nicely, transitions were cool, and so I think many readers, elder teens on up might like this book. Fantasy, sci-fi, urban fantasy readers, probably even horror enthusiasts could enjoy this.
Although if anyone thins their eyes again, it’ll be far too soon. ;)
Now for the narrator, I don’t think I’ve ever heard Smith read before, but now I want to just hear him read all of my books to me. The man studied his material and makes every character (even the Korean-speaking dog) come straight to life. Honestly one of the best narrators I’ve had the pleasure of hearing yet. The action scenes are read rabbit-fast, just as they happen, while the transitional scenes can be soft and languid. I’ve always gotten far better enjoyment from a book if it is read with *feeling* and this book has ALL the feels.
Seriously. Just buy it.
