“An amazing adventure in a fantastic land – Highly Recommended! “



Dirt by C. C. Hogan is a wonderful fantasy novel. I really enjoyed this book after the first few pages. The book had a slow beginning depicting the ordinary daily routine of Johnson Farthing, the hero. This part was as boring as the title sounded and I didn’t see the point while reading.

However, I kept reading and not too far into the book the plot began to pick up. There was a lot of action throughout the rest of the book. Character development was excellent. The plot developed nicely.

I love the dragons in this story. They are not your typical fire breathing sort and the author gave them such interesting personalities. The wizard is also not your typical spell casting magician.

Dirt is a little longer than I was expecting so it took me a few days to get through the whole book. Here and there I found a few errors missed in the copy edit but for the most part those did not slow my reading. The book ends with a cliffhanger, which doesn’t bother me; I tend to enjoy series’ and will read the entire series.

Dirt is appropriate for young adults as young as 16. I give this a four out of five stars.
