“The Last of the Silver Wings” by Kim Vermaak

Hi there! I’m finally getting my reviews up again! This book is the first in a series and the sequel comes out on the 3rd! Keep reading for my review!

4/5 stars

I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Nadine’s life takes a drastic turn when her village gets attacked by a dragon, leaving her family trapped underground. Nadine sets off on a quest to find the Dragon Whisperer as he is the only one who can help save her family. Along the way, Nadine meets several allies who assist her on her quest. Meanwhile, the mother dragon is heart-broken. Her hatchling has been stolen from her by humans. She is unable to locate him. The wicked King is responsible and plans to use the dragon hatchling as a weapon. Will the characters be able to rescue the dragon from the King before it is too late?

If you couldn’t tell, this is a medieval fantasy. It is also Christian and is mostly a clean read (though some content would be bad for younger readers). Nadine is a brave, young girl who the story revolves around, though there are multiple POVs in this book. I also appreciated the side characters and found their backstories to be rather interesting! I also love dragons in general and I thought the way they were portrayed in this book was unique and fascinating! I’m quite curious about what other adventures Nadine and her allies will go on in the next book! A few things that I found to take away from the book are some abrupt POV changes (not all of them were abrupt, just some) and grammatical errors, like missing quotation marks and misspelled character names. I’m not sure if those grammatical errors made it into the final copy or not, but it did make it somewhat difficult to tell who was talking. Other than that, I enjoyed this book and am looking forward to more adventures and dragons in book two!
