Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: Nora bravely stands her ground, willing to sacrifice her life for her little brother, which tells us that Nora is an awfully good person. Perhaps we shouldn't be surprised that she's too good to be human.

Con: There's no plot to the story. Nora isn't trying to accomplish anything; things just happen to her.

The implication that the dragons made the world a better place by killing off almost all of humanity is poisonous.
