Editorial Reviews


Reviewer's Overview:Alec-Ryuu Jun Yamamoto is a 13-year-old boy who lives in a hidden world, with many other orphans and refugees that are seeking to hide from the dreaded Black Dragon and their emissaries. The Black Dragon wants to enslave all non-magical beings due to their inferiority.
Ryuu is oblivious to his background as the possible destroyer of the Black Dragon. Or to rephrase, the information is withheld from him by his foster parents, in order to protect him. But his foster parents knowingly bestow him all the training they can, until they can finally reveal who he is. And when the time comes and the Dragon Knights resurface, Ryuu may have a little less tight of a chance at surviving.
*This book is part of a series.
Review:Overall Plot (5/5): It's a war between 2 sides. The one that wants peace, by allowing the magical and non-magical beings to mingle and share knowledge and power. And the one that wants to reign, by herding and enslaving non-magical beings, due to the vast difference in power between the two sides. Quick paced with descriptive writing and consistent storyline.
Overall Character Composition (5/5):  As expected, we focus on the main character, but the author also does great in describing the personalities and state of mind of the secondary characters, and I found myself growing sympathetic to them.
Overall Engagement (5/5): It was a page-turner. There was always something happening, and though this first book follows a tight time schedule in Ryuu's life, it is marvelously and so descriptive as to the fights and movements, and cause and consequences.
Reviewer's Personal Opinion:This was an interesting stepping stone out of my comfort zone. While I've read many young adult books, this is the first one I read, that dabbles into science fiction and space travel adventures. I quite liked this book, because it exceeded my expectations of it and gave me a good insight into a genre that I may be continuing to read.

About the Author

Andrew Wichland is a twenty-eight-year-old living on the spectrum who grew up in rural Sandwich, New Hampshire. His autism made fitting into his community difficult, especially in high school, where he found comfort and support in tales of wizards, dragons, and the depths of space, and other fantasy series.

Wichland's imagination offered a safe place when he needed to escape. He now writes stories to let his dreams soar.
