The Iron Dragon’s Daughter

by Michael Swanwick


The Iron Dragon’s Daughter

This book is another almost fantasy novel that really isn’t. It’s even more atypical in that the author is best known for writing science fiction. The ending is completely unexpected unless you’re one of a certain category of readers who sees it coming a mile away. No review can really do this book justice, though this review republished on Swanwick’s site certainly captures much of the emotional impact.

Rating: ★★★★☆
