|An unrelated dragon (Defenders of the Realm)|
Now that I've disclaimed a few times, let me start telling you about the book. In my opinion, it reads very similarly to the Dresden Files, except that it is told from a female perspective (and the female lead is a dragon speaker, and not a wizard). As a guy, it is interesting to read a story that is told from a female perspective, as there are some things that are shared that I would never have thought about, and it gave me a bit more (fictional) insight into a potential female thought process. Yet, the inner monologue wasn't too distracting from the story itself. If you enjoy the first person narrative style of Dresden, and the swirling of tense and breath-catching chapters of Butcher's stories, then you should feel right at home in Never Deal With Dragons.

Overall, I found Never Deal with Dragons to be a nice, light read that wound up fitting incredibly well within my preferred style of reading (I'm anxiously awaiting the next Dresden book). Plus, it's only about $3 dollars on Amazon - so, ultimately, why not pick it up and see what you think? And, if you do, please leave a comment and let me know what you thought. I think that it was really good, but I wouldn't mind some other opinions.
