Praise for The Waking Fire
"A marvelous piece of imagination with plenty of twists, a refreshingly different setting, and excellent world-building. A great read."—Mark Lawrence, international bestselling author of The Wheel of Osheim
"The Waking Fire is part Indiana Jones, part Pirates of the Caribbean, and part Mistborn. It's got wonderful, memorable characters and great action...I loved it."—Django Wexler, author of The Guns of Empire
"A fascinating world run mostly by corporations, where much of the power comes from dragon blood, provides a compelling backdrop for this sprawling epic fantasy...Breakneck pacing and sheer wonder keep the story compelling."—Locus
"Ryan handily juggles draconic fantasy, espionage, and steampunk naval fiction with realism and effortless skill."—Publishers Weekly

The world created by Ryan in this novel is properly constructed and the "magic" system if it could be termed as such is very much jn keeping with the "dawn of the industrial age" dynamic of the story.
Good characters, developed sufficiently to allow one to root for them.
The book is a good read and I am on to the next in the series with no hesitation.
Well thought out magic system, battles that kept me awake past the time I wanted to go to sleep, and characters that kept me wanting more...what else could I ask for?
