Lizbreath Salamander is young and beautiful. Her scales have an iridescent sheen, her wings arch proudly, her breath has a tang of sulfur. And on her back a tattoo of a mythical creature: a girl.

But when Lizbreath is drawn into a dark conspiracy she will have to rely on more than her beauty and her vicious claws the size of sabres . . .

A dragon has disappeared, one of a secretive clan. As Lizbreath delves deeper into their history she realises that these dragons will do anything to defend their secrets.

Welcome to the world of The Dragon With The Girl Tattoo. A world of gloomy Nordic dragons leading lives uncannily like our own (despite their size, despite the need for extensive fireproofing of home furnishings), a world of money hoarded, a world of darkness and corruption. A world where people are the fantasy.

I thought this book was a hoot. Okay, perhaps because I have not read The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, I was able to approach this with a clear mind. While this is no great classic, with much to critize, it is an okay book. [spoiler alert] The author also seems to be thinking of the Tolkien's ring during the writing of this book.
Will this change your life - no; but it is a pleasant way to spend a few hours on a lazy Sunday.

It was meh. The jokes weren't very funny most of the time, which kind of ruins the purpose of a satire. The writing wasn't AMAZING, but it wasn't anything to complain about. It was fun to read at times, so I can't complain too much.
