From Publishers Weekly
As shown in the second Dragonmaster fantasy, in which dragonmaster Hal Kailas leads the Derainian army's drive to finally end the war with the Roche, Bunch's work is far more about war than about dragons, who have little personality or individuality. Kailas, now a lord, makes a resourceful hero, managing a daring escape from an impregnable enemy prison, but the rest of the cast are mostly one-dimensional. Good battle scenes and Bunch's grasp of military strategy will please fans of the first book in the trilogy, A Storm of Wings
(2003). Though Bunch died in July 2005, he had completed the final volume, The Last Battle
, which has already been released in the U.K. (Mar.)
