Cin - The Millennial Dragon: The Story of Cinnamon the Dragon (re-imagined) by John Duane Conley is an action-packed fantasy novel about a dragon and the great kingdom of Northspire. The story unfolds with Prince Victor of Northspire and his friend and personal bodyguard Aaron being ambushed by bandits on their way home from a diplomatic mission. Prince Victor eventually marries the beautiful Commelina and before long, their daughter Kira is born, and they ascend to the throne. Later, when all the Elder Mages request the king’s presence for an urgent matter, life in the kingdom will not be the same again. What follows is a journey into a magical world where a dragon is born every thousand years to fulfill her destiny of protecting a kingdom from total destruction.
Aside from the fact that the setting in John Duane Conley’s Cin - The Millennial Dragon is pleasantly unique, the pacing of the novel is amazing. There is simply no let-up in the twists and turns of the plot and each of the scenes is vital to the story. The non-stop action, notwithstanding, sustains the focus on various characters, and this in itself is quite a literary achievement. This is a narrative of friendship, love, loss, and bravery and it is quite inspiring. As the kingdom of Northspire is threatened with oblivion, everyone’s courage will be pushed to limits they haven’t known before. And in spite of this, Cinnamon is one of those dragons that is more adorable than fearsome. Highly recommended for readers of all ages!
