Review: The Color of Dragons by R.A. Salvatore & Erika Lewis

Magic needs a spark.

And Maggie’s powers are especially fickle. With no one to help her learn to control her magic, the life debt that she owes stretches eternally over her head, with no way to repay it.

Until she meets Griffin, the king’s champion infamous for hunting down the draignochs that plague their kingdom.

Neither has any idea of the destiny that they both carry, or that their meeting will set off a chain of events that will alter every aspect of the life they know—and all of history thereafter.

Described as a "romantic pre-Arthurian tale of the origins of magic and Merlin" The Color of Dragons was a quick and easy read. 

The book alternates between Maggie's and Griffin's point of view. Maggie was a bit of a frustrating character. We're told she has street smarts, but throughout the the book she just throws herself recklessly into situations without thinking. Griffin was Maggie's opposite, complementing her perfectly. 

The world building was enough for me to get a general picture of the land. Plus, the magical ability Maggie had that was tied to the moon was interesting. However, if you're reading this for the dragons I personally found it a bit underwhelming in that aspect.  

While The Color of Dragons doesn't bring anything new to the YA fantasy genre, I found it to be a fun, if not forgettable read.
