    I started to read The Wake of the Dragon, without knowing what to expect but was quickly drawn into the tale The story is beautifully written in a style that seems almost classical, and the adventure it leads the reader on is nothing short of imaginative The loves, fears and addictions of the main characters help them come to life, making it easy to become caught up in their journey My favorite part was the steamp...
