I have just started to read this book.
I confess I've had the hardback for ages but haven't read it except to look at the pictures. :oops: For Christmas I was given the paperback version, a much easier to handle book, the illustrations are there but on a smaller scale.
I love the Dragon pics page & I want no 34 :laugh:

I love Monsterous Regiment, Ogg. Finished The Last Hero. Are the Hero's really all dead, I couldn't work that out? Would another book clarify the situation or is that it. What do you or anyone else think?

:laugh: Good! I did post spoiler warnings. If you still went ahead and looked then you've only got yourself to blame. :p

I'll bet if there was a big red button saying "Do not press under any circumstances" you'd be at the front of the queue to press it. :laugh:

Much like the safety black button on a black background that lights up a little black sign saying don't press this again???? LOL

I have had 'The Last Hero' on the shelf for a few years thought I'd read it. I hadn't, It's a great read I'll read it again today :cool: :cool: :cool:
