On this voyage, he experiences for the first time, what it's like to be loved and what it's like to love himself, and that truly is the greatest recognition any young creature can make.
While the plot is well-organized and its message touching, I couldn't really get into this one. I personally don't think it's "fun" enough for children to read — the prose is quite weak, and at times, awkward and difficult to follow. As an older reader, I could tolerate it, but I can't say I enjoyed it. At times, I caught myself skimming a lot too. I guess I'm not that fond of the high fantasy genre.
Lorenzen does create a convincing dragon world, but Dragon Moon's lack of reader appeal and stylistic talent make it sort of a bland read.

You will be transported into another world, where the laws of nature are quite different, the people are immensely different -- and the essence of what writing should be about is exactly the same. All fiction writing is about emotion. The emotion in Krona is deep and genuine. I've never had a tail or wings or great claws on my feet, but I had no trouble identifying with the emotions of the dragons, and therefore with them as people. Many writers annoy me with explanations. When I read a story, I don't want to be lectured at. I want to become so immersed in the book that it becomes more real than my own life.
The author intruding upon the stage destroys this illusion. Krona's world is more different from my life than almost anything I've read lately, and yet Bent Lorentzen avoids having a single word of explanation. The author is invisible, as he should be. After the first couple of paragraphs, the unbelievable becomes commonplace. The rules of this universe are unveiled in use, and through conversation.
