Mini-Review: Becoming the Dragon by Alex Sapegin

Here’s another mini-review of a book I recently reviewed for

To read my full OnlineBookClub official review, you can go here: Becoming the Dragon

Genre: Fantasy/Young Adult
Themes: Destiny, Transformation, Discovery, Mentoring


~ The Good ~

  • Has several magical creatures – elves, gnomes, dragons, etc.
  • Themes are portrayed well

~ The Not-So Good ~

  • Secondary characters are forgettable with no distinguishable traits
  • Plot is choppy and jumps around quite a bit
  • Dragon transformation, though part of the title, doesn’t happen until about two-thirds into the book
  • Uncommon and inventive names/words were frustrating and hard to keep track of (i.e. -names: Grok, Grchok, Gmar, Glik, etc.;  inventive words: bozl, settage, mrowns, troglomp, etc.)


My Rating2 stars


Perhaps those who don’t mind plot jumpiness and inventive language would enjoy this one.
