Dragons, mythical creatures, and an enjoyable book.
To start things off, I'd like to say that overall, the story was a solid 5 stars. Though the technical skills lacked a bit from here and there (thus affecting the writing style), it does not complement to the overall aesthetic of the story itself.
Read the story now
To start the plot, the author established a sense of humour. The opening sentence made me chuckle a bit. I could image an old mage saying something like this in a deep voice, and it was really funny. Over the past few weeks, I have seen a lot of plot's beginning with a short, dense packet of information. This story, like others, starts with an opening 2-3 paragraphs of information about the main character. To adumbrate, the author combines a perfect amount of description with dialogue.
The authors writing style, like states above, is really unique. Perhaps the most unique feature of the writer's style is the fact that he/she, unlike others, combines BOTH large and small packets of dialogue. This isn't very common, as most authors usually focus on extremely long and tedious pieces of dialogue or very short ones. This writer perfectly combines both, which I like. However, though this isn't a mistake, I would like the point out that since the start of the story, you have set the tone and mood for the story to be that of similar to a piece of classic literature; writing that includes barely any use of slang, as well as being very descriptive, and formal. This mood should, in my opinion, be reflected throughout the story. Thus, when you used more than 1 (in one case, 13) exclamation marks, it stood out to me. Though others wouldn't really recognise it, I think that this deviates from mood and tone you set your text up to be (that of a formal, descriptive, almost piece of classic literature, to that of a story that uses 13 exclamation marks in the dialogue.)
And to finish, the author's technical writing skills. There is no avoiding the occasional mistake of a missing comma here, or a missing capital there. The author, like many, tries to appear fancy with his/her writing and actually succeeds, leaves room for barely any errors.
Bravo author, keep writing,
