Fireguard's Thoughts:

After some initial disappointment (I thought "Moon Dragon Summer" would refer to an event, not the progatonist), I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by this book. While one of the first options is the grating "Do you want to stay home and not go on the adventure?" dealies, most of the rest are actual judgement calls and not merely the self-confidence checks or questions of who to believe that brought down Lady of the Winds and Isle of Illusion. The romance aspect went right over my head, but the plot and writing were definitely above average for a HeartQuest book, and I felt like I was in control of what happened, the downfall of most of the books in the series. This is definitely the HeartQuest book to go for, making it a pity it seems to be the hardest to find.
