This is a lovely little book that has quite the fairy-tale-feel to it, in that the characters don't have that much of an individual personality and the setting is pretty unspecific, both time- and location-wise. It's really quite a charming little tale - I mean, it's got dragons in it, how can it NOT be?!
Still though, it's very different from the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, and even though it's apparently supposed to be set in Westeros, I could basically see this taking place anywhere (... By which I mean "in any fantasy world"). As part of the fairy tale genre, this is an excellent read, however :-)!
