I've been working my way through Todd McCaffrey's books. Anne McCaffrey was one of my favorite writers. Todd McCaffrey is doing his best to carry on her work. The last book I read was Dragonsblood. I'm actually working my way through these via audio. Audio books help satisfy my need for books while keeping me off the couch. My house is much cleaner, my family better fed, and my body healthier when I'm listening to audio books.
So, what do I think of Todd McCaffrey as an author? I think he has a lot of potential. Anne was a much better writer. I think Todd is getting there. He's still young in his writing career. Dragonsblood was a bit confusing. It jumps back and forth in time every chapter. I love the way the story weaves together, but I rarely knew what was happening. I knew that I didn't know because Dominic kept asking me questions about the book, and I had to answer, "I don't know." It was intriguing and frustrating. It didn't follow the prescribed book plots, which made it more intriguing. It didn't follow the prescribed book plots, which was frustrating for my brain, which has been trained to follow a distinct pattern. I do recommend it.
