Book Review: Backyard Dragons

Backyard Dragons (Spirit Knights #2)Backyard Dragons by Lee French
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Claire is fighting to become the Spirit Knight she knows she is, but between the minor gender problem and her sprite turning out to be a dragon who has a family that needs rescuing, she has an awful lot to learn. When her mentor and adoptive dad, Justin, has his own battles to fight she ventures out, and learns that sometimes people get hurt if they don’t know what they are doing.

Book 2 in the Spirit Knights series follows Claire as she struggles to gain her footing in a very unfamiliar world. It’s a great urban fantasy novel that tends YA but still pulls in a broader fantasy audience. I really enjoyed how Claire groped her way through as her mentor leaves her hanging; Justin was written as a complex character and I thought it was really critical to the overall plot development that he gain some depth to show how dangerous the world of the Spirit Knight is. I’m looking forward to the rest of the series, especially as Claire grows up both in her own maturity and in her knowledge of her duties.
