I did not enjoy reading this book. The plot was repetitive; a problem arises, the dragons and octopi work together to solve it, and after a few mistakes, the conflict is resolved with minimal loss. There is little to no suspense, and the book became predictable after a few chapters. The characters were not very well developed, and I did not get attached to them. The Dragon Dreamer would please a younger audience, but I think anyone who is 11 years old and up would be easily bored by this book.
