While I’m completely unfamiliar with the Parisian world of the original trilogy, I didn’t feel very lost in this new dragon realm. The descriptions of the world as well as the different kinds of creatures who exist here, as well as the seamless integration of Viet culture was all very beautifully done and it’s definitely one reason I’m looking forward to reading more of the author’s works. While the resolution of the murder mystery itself didn’t take very long, the author managed to keep the stakes very high despite the low page count and I enjoyed it…
