The BookViral Review: 

Tales of Dragons have been capturing the imaginations of readers young and old for hundreds of years. Fantasy stories that stoke the imagination. Tales that lead to dreams of fanciful flight and fiery breath and it’s this magic that Blair brings to life in Dragons In The Clouds.


A novella of epic proportions. Blair taps into our continued fascination with Dragon lore whilst bringing a refreshing new perspective that is free of trite clichés. But with far too many fantasy reads wallowing in unnecessary complexity, Blair only lingers in detail long enough to establish a sense of time and place. Thereby maintaining an all-important element of suspense and  sense of magical intrigue.


Avoiding the drudgery of predictableness with timely twists and revelations there is however a distinctly satisfying meticulousness with which he has  developed his narrative. His backdrops are well-conceived and there is an economy to his prose that keeps them light whilst introducing us to a colourful and eclectic mix of characters that will appeal to readers of all ages.


It is these characters that ultimately drive the plot. From David and Rago to Sir Solomon and Merlinius, Blair’s characters are thoughtfully introduced to bring depth to his tale with young David and Rago proving immediately endearing.


A timeless and delightful fantasy read with particular appeal to YA Fantasy readers, Dragons In The Clouds is strongly recommended.
