Kingdom of the Golden Dragon - Isabel Allende

Original title: El Reino del Dragón de Oro


I had heard so many good reviews about Isabel Allende, so I was curious to read some of her books. Well, that didn't turn out right, did it?

Part of the blame is on me though. I got this book from my library and had somehow missed it was the second part of the Eagle & Jaguar Trilogy. Oops, that obviously never helps, but is wasn't all.


The story just turned out to be terrible, I can't remember the details, but it felt awkward, and it wasn't written very well either. A big disappointment. Perhaps she's better when she isn't trying to write a YA book, but I haven't really had the courage to try another one of her books.


Note: I read a Dutch translation of the book
