Aww yiss, Dragons
So I've been itching for stories with dragons for a while, and when I saw this on the front page, I thought I'd give this story a go. Overall, I enjoyed reading it. Though it is not the most unique of plots, the execution is solid, and the characters' exploits are enjoyable to follow.

The only real problem I can think of is that there are no real antagonists until a fair way into the story itself, but when Prince Nocens appears, he makes up for it by being a Dio Brando level of asshole in short order. Its not subtle, but at the same time, I don't feel like I mind.
Without giving away too much, there is one element of the story which I find to be rather sudden in its introduction, and in its resolution with regards to how it affects the plot. It makes some sense in context to have this particular element be a non issue, but at the same time, more could have been done with this.
The world feels like it has nuances beyond what is covered in Book 1, and I look forward to future stories from this universe.
+ Overall enjoyable and mostly relaxing read
+ A villain you really want to see lose.
+ World looks like it could be fun to have stories in.
-Abrupt introduction of antagonists and one other plot element.
