An Essay on Dragons (S. Shana)

An Essay on Dragons
S. Shana
Amazon Digital Services
Fiction, YA? Fantasy/Folklore
* (Terrible)

DESCRIPTION: This brief essay offers an overview of the popular mythological beast, the dragon.
A Kindle-exclusive title.

REVIEW: Possibly the biggest rip-off I've yet downloaded, far less than half of the file actually discusses dragons; the rest consists of page after page of links to the author's other articles and books. The essay itself - written in an unnecessarily large font - barely pretends to scratch the surface of the subject. If this is the extent of the author's knowledge of dragons, they need to move away from coloring books as their source material. (Seriously, I own a dragon coloring book that goes into more depth than this thing.) An exceptionally disappointing waste of five minutes, even as a freebie download.
(EDIT - It seems that this selection has mysteriously vanished from Amazon's archives.  Strange...)
