September Online Book Club Meeting: The Last of the Firedrakes

The Last of the Firedrakes by Farah Oomerbhoy was quite the experience for me. I loved reading about the different worlds created in the book. The author’s use of imagery helped me visualize the magical world and all of its inhabitants. There were so many magical creatures that kept popping up as pleasant surprises. I always enjoy a story about a person that can overcome and can create/and or find a new sense of belonging. All in all, I enjoyed reading this month’s book club choice.
