Tom Holt is a prolific and entertaining author Paint Your Dragon is onein his canon of ever growing tales It was humorous, entertaining, and full of fantastically realized characters I particularly liked the dragon.This book took on the concept of the fight between good and evil It does explore some interesting philosophical concepts along the way in order to build the world that must exist for the story to properly develop Unfortunately this bogs it down with side stories that feel t Tom Holt is a prolific and entertaining author Paint Your Dragon is onein his canon of ever growing tales It was humorous, entertaining, and full of fantastically realized characters I particularly liked the dragon.This book took on the concept of the fight between good and evil It does explore some interesting philosophical concepts along the way in order to build the world that must exist for the story to properly develop Unfortunately this bogs it down with side stories that feel they go nowhere even while fulfilling a much needed plot point This happens often in his books, as I think he bites offthan he can chew in any one book.That being said, I do like reading him and going back to readof his work I just wish he would slow down, as only the British seem to have the ability to write with humor in the Sci Fi Fantasy genres He is one of the masters, as his word craft is always on point and characters never thin This was my first Tom Holt novel It might not have been the best place to start I found it to be a bit confusing, a tiny bit tedious, and not as much fun as I ve been told a Holt book can be It certainly hadn t put me off from reading his other works, but it doesn t earn any accolades from me Any story that features dragons, backstabbing saints, artists, sentient statues, vacationing demons and time travel should beenjoyable than this was.

While I found much tedious about the book, but it never took itself too seriously, and that made it fun to read. Even if it s occasionally quite funny, this book was too confusing and unstructured for my taste far from terrible, though.
