Every dragon slayer owes the Oil Watch a period of service, and young Owen was no exception. What made him different was that he did not enlist alone; his two closest friends stood with him shoulder to shoulder. Steeled by success and hope, the three were confident in their plan. But the arc of history is long and hardened by dragon fire... and try as they might, Owen and his friends could not twist it to their will. At least, not all the way.

While I'm giving this sequel (to Johnston's debut, The Story of Owen) 4 stars on its own merits as an individual book, this duology together approaches 5 stars for me, because it's a take on dragons that is entirely unlike anything I've ever read before. It's so imaginative and smart, and Siobhan's voice is so clear and fresh that it is an absolute joy to spend two books swimming around inside her head. Folks who have read Johnston's later books, but perhaps not made it back to her first two: remedy this; this is a really, really great duet.

It's been a few months since I read this... and the ending is still with me. Poignant and brilliant.

Surprisingly robust sequel that continues to tell a compelling story without resorting to teen love as a plot line.
