Book one of The Four Kingdoms series, The Dragon Throne, by Chrys Cymri can be described as the young adults Game of Thrones! I fell in love with the story and the magical characters created by Chrys Cymri. From the beginning, you are introduced to a fantastical world of adventure, friendship, and betrayal. The story is complex, but Cymri does a magnificent job of connecting all of the dots and not leaving any stone unturned.
The characters are well rounded and range from a young woman trying to find herself in order to help her kingdom to a magical Unicorn on a quest to seek vengeance for his lost friend to a family of powerful and cynical Dragons. Cymri has a way of creating characters you want to love and those you'll do nothing but root against from the moment you meet them.
This is a great summer read for young adults who love a fantastical adventure full of twists and turns. The one improvement I would love to see in the follow-ups would be the inclusion of a character key. This would simply add to the magnificence of the story and make the reading process a bit easier. Overall, Chrys Cymri has created a great series and I am excited to continue the story and see how our main protagonists overcome the danger lurking just around the corner!
