Tea with the Black Dragon by R. A. MacAvoy

Tea with the Black Dragon - R.A. MacAvoy

Series: Black Dragon #1


Well that was disappointing. It's a little hard to describe why this didn't click with me, but the dialogue just seemed too scattered and dreamlike and the daughter was a total idiot. Sure, she had brains, supposedly, but she was basically TSTL. Oh, and there was a pet death that just sunk my estimation of the book more.


Also, the way Long went from task to task as if he had a plan while he really didn't seem to have one based on what happened really annoyed me.
