M.R. Mathias is a master at world building and is so good with creative descriptions that you can almost feel the wind whipping through your hair as you soar along on the back of a dragon. -- Readers Favorite Awards review of M. R. Mathias's 2015 "Gold Medal" Award Winning novel "Blood and Royalty" from The Dragoneer Saga"
"There are few writers in the genre of fantasy that can equal the creative mind of M.R. Mathias - now acknowledged as a master in this genre of dragons and dwarves, and magic, and spells, and all aspects of fantasy."-- Top 100, Hall of Fame, Vine Voice, Book Reviewer, Grady Harp
The magic Mathias weaves is evident here and re-reading book one, after completing the series only demonstrates how meticulously he sets his stage, outlines in his characters, the manner in which the entire series will play out... keeps us eager to continue. He is a very skilled fantasy writer - be sure to follow the entire series. Mathias knows exactly how to weave a spell that entraps us from book to book.
The novel is punctuated with Mathias' trademark of strong characters, great dialogue, and breathtaking action.
Mathias has opened a whole new exciting world of fantasy: take a bit of Tolkien's influence, a bit of Robert Johnson's, too, pack it up with a lot of action, great writing style, well-developed characters and thrilling, entertaining, engaging plot... and, of course, wait for the book seven. "The Legend of Vanx Malic" I loved the read and it is worth 4 out of 5 ratings any day.
