Directions for Sugar Free Benefiber: Stir into water and enjoy. ??? I doubt there has ever been a person who drank water with dissolved flavorless fiber and said, "Man I enjoyed that!"
Dragon God by Ava Richardson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The cover art captured me right away! I was very interested to see this dragon in action. The title also gave away that someone would eventually ride a dragon. I was a little surprised at the twist and who ended up riding which dragon (no spoilers here). Just something that I thought was well done.
I liked the story. The world had some complicated politics, which I also like to see. The writing style was good and kept me reading.
I enjoyed the character development of this book at the beginning, and I liked the writing style, the characters were fairly believable, in that there were some things I liked about them and some things that drove me crazy (like real people).
The one thing I found difficult about this book was that the pacing felt a little lopsided at times. What I mean by that is there would be a long segment where very little seemed to happen other than meeting the characters, then the build up to the climax seemed like a lot happened in a short amount of pages, and it ended abruptly.

For centuries, young men in their eighteenth year have been sent away from the small village of Dungan for a year-long exile as they begin their journey into manhood. This traditional exile, the Troven, was instituted so that young men may find themselves, find their purpose, and find their place in the world. When Kaz Kinsley and his three friends leave to begin their Troven, all they have on their minds is getting to the first sign of civilization and finding a way to survive on their own. Fate has more in mind for these young men, though. Stone Seekers are on the move, sent by the evil sorcerer Mordyar to find six magical stones, each with the power to enhance one of six gifts every person in Denall is born with. When Kaz unknowingly comes into possession of the Sight Stone, he and his friends become part of the story of the Stones of Power, and their Troven suddenly becomes something much more.
