5.0 out of 5 stars An Exciting New World to Explore! March 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This author weaves an exciting new world that I am anxious to explore.

Dragons, humans, dwarves and more populate this world and are deftly woven throughout the story. The author even supplies a map to help with a visualization of the places mentioned.

One thing I would like is a guide to the pronunciations of both the names and places. Some of the unusual spellings are intriguing I would like to know how the author thinks they should be pronounced.

I am looking forward to reading this series as each episode becomes available.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting twist November 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was a very good read, and I would recomend this book to anyone who is looking for a short fantasy read where the tough Warrior dudes don't get what they want. When I started this book I though it was going to be one of those book where the warriors go off and they fight an evil dragon and win coming back home with a mountain load of treasure. Instead, I got a book where the the warriors don't win and happen to be in the wrong. It left me wanting more and it was such a good book that I finished it in less than 45 min.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warning: A Mother Scorned is Intense June 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
A Mother Scorned" seemed slow at first, but that was just setting you up for "Through the roof" emotions that followed when the dwarfs entered the village.
I have never been affected by a book such as this in over 30 years of reading short stories.
There have been stories that I have replayed in my mind for years from the Masters of Fiction and this story has risen to that level.
I must admit that after reading your book I could not get to sleep as my mind was traveling over the island from the eyes of a Draphony.
My emotions ran from surprise, to fighting blow by blow with the characters, to the agony of death and some other darker emotions I don't want to talk about.

Be Warned; anyone who reads J.C. Harker's book A mother Scorned may experience intense emotional side effects.

While I was initially hesitant to invest a great deal of time into a new world, my curiosity got the better of me.

I'm glad it did.

This short story is easy to digest in one sitting, yet it makes you crave to know more about the world that Harker has created within it. I ended up reading it a second time both for enjoyment and because I realized that I had accidentally skipped over important facts from the beginning of the story once I got to the end.

This book won't take up a lot of your time, and it'll leave you satisfied and wanting more. I'm looking forward to reading more stories set in this world.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Cathartic Teaser for the Series July 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
When J.C. Harker set out to write a short tale from the Uutta Toivoa series, she took a unique and not altogether empathetic angle. Set in the Third Era, Year 976, this tale follows the pillaging dwarves as they set out to rid the world of the existence of hybrid dragons, called the Draphony. Much of the reader's soul will cry out at such merciless marauding, which is exactly how Harker reels in her audience. She firmly crafts the story to arouse the reader's emotions and incite interest in the rest of the series. While A Dragon Scorned is a good read, it feels somewhat incomplete without the framework of who the characters are and why they act the way they do. Such questions can only be answered by the remainder of the series as Harker teases out the characters' existences and purposes in life, giving them meaning and fleshing them out before our very eyes. Complete with a plot twist and blatant catharsis, A Dragon Scorned is the ideal choice for the casual passerby.

In A Dragon Scorned, we have a story about the genocide of the Draphony race. We begin following Dwarvish/Dwarven mercenaries on their way to the island. The event unfolds while switching perspectives between several characters to provide.

The Draphony the conflict centers around could be described as human/dragon hybrids. They have a bond with a small dragons. They are able to obtain greater powers by physically bonding with the dragon partner.

I've read Harker's work on Wattpad and am a big fan of her writing style. Her language is precise, the characters are unique personalities, and the descriptions are beautiful. There are some concepts I've seen before in fantasy, like a special power behind someone's name. And others that I personally have not seen before, such as Azure- the place of dreams and overlapping realities- existing side by side with the natural world but causing dangerous side effects.

What I disliked was the perspective switching. While the mercenaries were cool in some ways, I couldn't really root for them as they are about to commit genocide on a seemingly peaceful race. There's not a Draphony character who sticks out as a main character until late in the story. Although, by then, I find myself willing to root for anyone who was against the mercenaries. This does not mean they were dislikable! By all means, they were great character who would have been admirable anti-heroes in another situation.

I don't want to give away too much about the ending. I will say that the story was resolved in a way I like.

Overall, this is a story I would recommend to any fantasy fan. Harker's writing and concepts make her stand out as a future big name in the genre.

And given the price, it'd be difficult to find a better buy in terms of writing quality.

More About the Author

Joanna is a passionate fantasy and science-fiction writer (and reader). Born in Poland, she moved to the UK in 2006. Since a very young age she had two major passions - fiction and computers. Being a sensible person she chose the later as a career choice. However once a writer, always a writer, and in 2011 the Dragons Reborn (Uutta Toivoa) series was born.

But dragons aren't her only passion and so the concept for the Vampire Bytes series soon followed. The goal was to create vampires more akin to the old-school mythos - adult, ancient, powerful and with less teenage drama. All that with an urban/sci-fi background.
