    One thought on “Dragon's Gold”

    1. A really great first fantasy for young readers, or just a really good story for older readers Kelvin and his sister, Jon, are two engaging characters who learn a lot about themselves, their heritage, and the world around them in a very short time I m looking forward to reading in this series.

    2. The start of a reasonably enjoyable Piers Anthony fantasy series It s nice to see him stretch out beyond his usual Xanth setting, and Kelvin is a decent hero, but the series runs out of steam long before the end of the fifth book.

    3. This was a fun story to read Now I am onto the next in the series and have high hopes for this one too Fantasy is so fun The authors can do anything they want If I were an author, this would be my genre.

    4. Grade B Book Dg1 GoodReads book record lists co author Robert E Margroff, but doesn t list in shelf author column, nor does this book turn up for him in personal shelf search.

    5. A quick, fun read Can definitly see Piers Anthony s influence in the writing with the light hearted humor don t worry, it s not like one of the pun filled Xanth novels.

    6. A good story and kept me interested, the only thing that bothered me was that that story could be pretty confusing I don t know if it was because I was sort of young when I first read it or what Anthony puts a lot of interesting concepts into the story that aren t seen much in many fantasy novels Which is a really nice change, but as the story progresses the far fetched and confusing the concepts become I am going to have to read the story again now that I m older Hopefully I will understand it [...]

    7. I remember reading this book in high school I bought it because of the title, and quickly discovered that it was mostly about an irritating young man named Kelvin, born with rounded ears in a world where everyone else had pointy ears His father was from a mysterious far away land Earth They go on some adventures, they buy a slave girl who has been mistreated because she also has round ears, and other than the twist of his father being from our world, the book is a fairly generic fantasy adventu [...]

    8. I have always been a fan of the wit of Piers Anthony Unfortunately, that wit was mostly absent in the Kelvin of Rud trilogy I did enjoy the names of plants animals Dragon s Gold was a fun adventure The characters were developed and the story moved along After finishing it, I immediately started Serpent s Silver Maybe that was a mistake Familiarity breeds contempt.

    9. An interesting enough plot concept for a book This book uses a straightforward style, which I enjoy There s something about the storyline that I don t enjoy I think it may be the extreme differences of charactersch as the natives versus the aliens perhaps.

    10. A simple story about a boy who inadvertantly grows up to be a hero Although it doesn t seem to have been marketed as such, it s really a book for kids.

    11. DNF So, I love the Xanth series, but this book just did not work for me I might try it again in a few years

    12. This was a very quick read with a ton of questions left unanswered but it was still enjoyable I will certainly not stop myself from a piers anthony in the future

    13. Childhood fave read it several times 25 years ago, but like a lot of Anthony s work doesn t really hold up and has some of his characteristic super awkward writing regarding sex puberty.

    14. An OK read, but prone to Piers Anthony s punning approach to names mildly amusing at first, but increasingly annoying over time and superficial characterisation.
