Pretty Monsters by Kelly Link

Pretty Monsters – a pretty good book

By Kelly Link

I was alerted to this short story collection by a public radio review, or I may never have picked it off the shelf.  Fantasy/science fiction/scary stories are generally not to my taste, but the NPR reviewer made Kelly Link’s writing sound intriguing – and it is.

Dragon Rider by Cornelia Funke

Firedrake, a young dragon, receives a frightening warning one night: Humans are planning to destroy the valley in which he lives! All the dragons must flee. Their only refuge is a place above the clouds called the Rim of Heaven — which may not even exist. Firedrake boldly volunteers to go ahead first. As he embarks on his journey, he meets Ben, a runaway boy. Together, the boy & dragon make their way toward the Rim of Heaven, all the while running a step ahead of Nettlebrand, a monster who will stop at nothing to hunt down Firedrake.


That is – Just To Let You Know – we exist!  imo (in my opinion) is a blog that we created as a forum for Teens to communicate with one another about the books you are reading.  We will be posting books, reviews, recommendations and of course your opinions.  We will be filtering comments to ensure that everything is appropriate for our site, but please don’t let that stop you from making the comments.  I want to hear them.

Again, welcome to imo.
