Since so many people thought this review was unhelpful I guess I need to elaborate. The evil scientist is a stereotype. The dragon warrior is able to deal with regaining the memories of a lifetime of horrific events one day and romance the girl the next. It's crazy unrealistic. The setting is a desert wasteland and not very interesting. The marines are a stereotype of the military macho man who are all evil and enjoy raping and kidnapping and stealing and generally causing misery at every turn. I have a problem when an entire group of people are viewed as evil. There are no shades of grey with any of those characters. Some of the plot doesn't make sense or is not explained well enough. Why the dragons exist is as far fetched an idea as any I have ever heard. How the dragons were actually made is not discussed, just that they were. Plus, the dragon warriors are super rare and yet one is left for dead. The marines scavenge everything off the trucks and don't make sure their best fighter is truly dead? In addition, the evil scientist can reanimate dead bodies, so why not take him back even if he is dead? You get slapped in the face with the foreshadowing and obvious clues throughout the book which is handy if you like knowing exactly how things are going to work out super super early. I don't mean for this review to hurt anyone's feelings, but I felt a more honest review was needed for this particular book. I wish the author all the best and hope she does well. I know it's harder than people think to write a fantasy story. This one just needs some work is all (my opinion).
I am confident a lot of reviewers will extol the virtues of MacLeod's clean writing and adept characterization, so I will just focus on one thing that for me made the book particularly enjoyable: It's sense of scale. With a lot of "fantastic" books, maybe even a majority, it seems that the fate of the whole world has to be constantly in the balance, or else the stakes don't seem high enough. That is not the case here. In this first volume of what promises to be a series, things are as simple as protecting the people of Point A from the people of Point B, and the narrative is still plenty engaging. There is room left for the stakes to get bigger and bigger as the series progresses, but that upping of the ante will be "earned," not a constant from the beginning. Honestly, I found it really refreshing, and it also brought a "reality" to a fictional world.
At about 45K words, Dragon Warrior is right on the edge of novella/novel length, and it is a fast and fun read.
Dragon Warrior is book one in the Dragon Wars series by Shea MacLeod.
I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed this post-apocalyptic adventure. The author thinks outside the box and brings together several unique elements.
I picked this one up; because of the title and the free status. I love dragon's and was expecting something along the lines of a dragon shifter in hiding or like the movie Dragonheart, but what I got was completely different in that the dragon's are true fire breathing dragon's.
I enjoyed the world building, plot, Rain and Micah together and separately. I was surprised by many events and plot twists and turns. The character and world jump off the pages. The author does a fabulous job getting the reader invested into the characters created and pulling you into this interesting world where dragon's are bad, humans fight for their lives not from just the dragon's, but from another source that once served to protect, and so much more.
The ending is wonderfully done. Even though we are left with a little cliffhanger and some questions, they just add to the story making me want to pick up the next book to see what happens next, what is reveled, and how will these people change the status quo.
The only thing I felt needed to happen is that things needed to slow down a little more. Without giving things away, some major events happen before the beginning of the book including a potential villain. The way this is shown to us left me hungry for more.
Dragon Warrior is a post-apocalyptic America with some gripping unique twists.
