A dragon with a heart and a mage who is not suddenly all powerful after 'finding out the truth' are very different heroes.
Fionn has been working for a long time to destroy Tasmarin whilst Meb was dragged into this plane when Fionn destroyed the first of the towers holding Tasmarin in place.
They travel Tasmarin as Fionn plans the final destruction of Tasmarin and Dragon's Ring is a fascinating read. Meb is a very likeable character who changes from a young girl to a mature woman who is more then a match for Fionn. Fionn is a rogue who is honest about his intentions to destroy Tasmarin to all who ask but no one believes him.
Along the way they gather favours from the many races who live in Tasmarin and finally connect them all together as Fionn prepares to destroy Tasmarin.
Read Dragon's Ring to find out how good a story this is.
Hopefully this will be only the first in a series about Fionn and Meb.
Excellent read with characters, setting, and dialogue each stunningly simple and their own strength.
I just finished reading them both and am SO pleased to now have them on my Kindle to reread any time I please. In case you haven't figured it out, I LOVE the story of Finn and Meb. It is just so cleverly written and funny that I can't get tired of it. From the old dragons, sprites, fire people and mere people, I love them all! Well, maybe not the fire people and the older dragons, but I do the rest.
"Dragon's Ring" and its sequel now have a permanent place of honor on my Kindle, along with the "Stray" series, by Andrea K Höst and a few other favorite titles. Read it if you enjoy a humorous fantasy, though I have to warn you - I've just about worn out my Kindle dictionary from looking up all the unusual words that Freer uses!
Mab is an orphaned girl, now missing her second family. The dragon that is responsible is going to pay for what he did.
Pity she doesn't recognize him when she meets him.
Or is it? A charming meeting of many species and conflicting desires, where it gets hard to tell the good guys from the bad guys, or is it that we can't tell good from bad?
Meb and Finn surely captured my heart and I hope that we will see more of them. This book is definitely worth adding to your shelf.
So I love the Dragon's Ring.
There are so many different kinds of people in the book, that it's confusing a bit to start. But because they behave in consistent and self-serving ways, after a while I could track them without keeping up with who had the right number of ears.
I also like books in which the good guys wine and the bad guys lose. It's even better when you don't always know who those people are are first.
And I like it when hidden meaning is revealed. For example, there is a special treasure of the mer people that is spoken of as being in two different, mutually incompatible places at the same time, and from the POV of the speaking character, it really IS in their control. That was a bit aggravating (where WAS the thing), until the REVEAL! Good writing!
Now, let me explain the title of this review: the prologue uses purple prose. I hate purple prose. If I hadn't read other stuff by Monkeyman, this would have put me off, but because I HAVE read his other stuff, I knew that quickly he's going to give me good narrative and a great story, and yup, he surely did. Not only is THIS book a great story, it's the beginning of a series, which I will most eagerly devour. Thanks, Dave!
