Format: Paperback
I'm a fan of military/sci-fi type novels, and I've read quite a bit of Ringo's stuff. This book has just as good, if not better battle scenes. The descriptions of the action and details about the soldiers brings me back to my time in the service. I also appreciate the variety of personalities represented by the characters; it seems a lot more realistic than some of the narrow minded stuff I've read. I give it four stars because it was a really enjoyable read, but there are a few editing gaffes (not anything that detracts from the story, but room for improvement). I'm eagerly waiting for book 2.

From a non-Amazon reader:

"Wow! What a read. I am not much of a connoisseur of science fiction but this
novel was well worth it. Author has an unfamiliar but refreshing style that
guides the reader in and out of the main character's psyche at every step of
the way. Action scenes are extraordinarily detailed and storyline is
unpredictable at every turn. You are more than happy to leave my comments referenced above
on Amazon."

Sons of Dragons is a military science fiction novel that follows Private Kyle Evans on his first combat mission. Loaded into dropships with the rest of Echo Company, Evans and his fellow soldiers are expecting to leap through hyperspace aboard the carrier Rosalie to help keep the peace on an urbanized planet. Instead, they find themselves in orbit around an unknown planet in an unrecognizable part of the galaxy.

The mistake is realized only after the dropships are away, and the Rosalie comes under attack from an unknown ship. The Commander recalls the dropships, but is forced to jump away before the final three can return.

Stranded, the troopers have little choice but to land on the planet and scout around, and hope the Rosalie brings back reinforcements. The soldiers establish an outpost, and eventually run into the native population. After some initial unpleasantness an alliance is formed, with the soldiers benefiting from the locals' specific knowledge and the natives from their visitors' advanced technology.

The new alliance is soon tested by a hostile force known as the Horde, along with the chilling possibility that the fearsome raiders are being controlled by a malevolent alien force.

Sons of Dragons is a fast-paced novel with plenty of action to drive the story. Author Landowski puts his military experience to good use and tactical details are represented with the highest authenticity. Readers who appreciate such detail will be pleased, and those less familiar with military tactics shouldn't be overwhelmed as the narrative remains straightforward throughout.

The story is told almost entirely from the perspective of Kyle Evans. He is a believable and likable protagonist and Landowski is at ease in his mind.
