Ragnar, who controls those within Dragon Forge, is becoming too superstitious and cruel. Burke the Machinist knows it will not be long before Ragnar no longer needs his help making weapons. There is no way of knowing what Ragnar will then do to Burke, but he knows it will not be good. Burke sends Anza, the niece he raised and is now a walking arsenal, with Jandra's small group to reclaim a genie (Global Encephalous Nanite Interaction Engine) which resembles a tiara.
Jandra is a human girl who had been raised as a pet by the sky-dragon Vendevorex. The tiara genie allows Jandra to control tiny nanites to perform functions, mostly healing, in a manner that many believe to be magic. Before Bitterwood killed the goddess, Jazz had manipulated Jandra's memories. Jandra fears that the memories belonging to Jazz may overtake her own personality. The genie could prevent it.
As for Bant Bitterwood, he is the guardian of a little girl named Zeeky. Zeeky is able to communicate with most creatures, as well as with a village of ghosts trapped within a special crystal ball she carries. They are trying to locate and rescue Zeeky's brother, Jeremiah, who has been sold to the dragons as a slave. Meanwhile, a horrible face from the past returns.
***** FOUR AND A HALF STARS! This is the third book in the Dragon Age series. It also looks to be the last. This trilogy MUST be read in order to fully understand what is going on and why. Otherwise, you will find yourself totally lost several times.
Other than the references to the "Harry Potter biographies", I thoroughly enjoyed this installment. For me, the idea of the Potter series surviving over a century and then being considered as biographies is just too much of a stretch. Had the Potter series been a trilogy only, I might have found the idea believable.
The author does not follow a single character. Instead, the story jumps around to show what is happening with key characters and/or groups. I was able to easily keep up with what was going on with dragons, humans, and even beasts at a few points. The story merges characters from the first two books. Therefore, there are several interesting and well developed characters that kept me intrigued from beginning to end. Highly recommended! *****

Maxey has created a vivid and complex world of a futuristic society where dragons have overcome their human creators. Advanced technology has been suppressed and forgotten. In true epic fantasy fashion, there are numerous, colorful characters with distinct stories and motivations that affect their journey. But each character is interconnected, the humans all working towards freedom. And the anthropomorphized dragons are just as important and give life to a powerful story.
In this latest novel, there is just as much danger and suspense for the heroes as well as powerful enemies. Several characters thought dead, make surprising returns. And some characters make untimely ends, with emotional results. With a thrilling showdown, the climactic ending leaves a satisfying conclusion yet room for more. Maxey has impressed me once again. Fantasy fans should not miss this fantastic series.
Unlike a lot of other trilogies, there were no 'filler' middle books, nor weak endings in this 3rd installment. Chock-full of great storytelling from awesome characters and colorful dragons of every type, Dragonseed is totally engrossing.
James Maxey is a masterful storyteller who grabs the reader by the throat from the beginning sentence, and doesn't let go until the last line. Fast-paced, action-packed, and character-driven, Dragonseed is a solid read. The book seems to hint at an ending, but we think Maxey has left an opening wide enough for hopefully another novel or another trilogy in the future.
We hope so, anyways.
Major kudos goes out to Maxey for bringing another fresh take on post-holocaust fantasy with tones of sci-fi that blend together seamlessly in this terrific trilogy.
Didn't care for the "F" word in Dawn but it wasn't overdone. It seemed a very evil character used that word when she appeared in other parts of the books. Most of the time it was ok. Violence as expected with this type of story.
Well written. Kept me glued to the book. Intelligent dragons are always a draw for me.
