I like dragon books what can I say So when I see a new book about dragons I m fairly inclined to pick it up Unfortunately this book was a complete disappointment The premise is that a dragon wakes up in a modern day world where there are mages and magic suddenly increasing the amount of magic in the world The dragon oes around as a human I only made it through the first 75 pages before I decided the book didn t seem like it was only made it through the first 75 pages before I decided the book didn t seem like it was to et any better and honestly 75 pages in I should have started to see plot
progression not worth any of time so i Not worth any of time so I it My major problems with the book besides that it has so many useless scenes that don t push the plot or character development forward lies mainly in characterization Holy moly Tesser is like a male version of Bella from Twilight That is definitely not a compliment Basically this incredibly old wise dragon becomes a super hottie with old eyes that Elena's Conquest goes around flirting withirls and saving them from rapists and being the center of newspaper attention for the first 75 pages Uhhhh yeah Now I don t know any dragons personally so I Sister of My Heart guess I can t speak for them but look at this line from the book Tesser smiled seductively Good evening ladies Enjoy the food Yeah I can t stand this dragon He has a modern sensibility on par with humanity which is weird considering he s a dragon and he s been sleeping for ages he thinks about the attractiveness of another species he makes commentary on social issues like rape and cussing and alcohol many humans act like assholes when they drink hard liuor Some nights it seems like all of them are assholes Just no I cannot swallow this version of a re awakened dragon Maybe you can I just can t My notes from this book sum up what I think about this bookThis book needs some serious editing It includes too many mundane actions that don t advance the plotWhat the hell He s a dragon and heoes around rating how attractive women are What the hell is a dragon He s just like a horny confused teenage male with a ton of power Stop these crap wandering scenes and King Alfred's Version of St. Augustine's Soliloquies get on with the plot I want magic and less random hot strangerets dropped into a townThat is all One star I really didn t like this book But who knows Maybe you can Rescuing Gus get over the issues I had with the book I wouldn t recommend reading it though Eh The first part wasenerally interesting but the second part was over the top absurd Maybe I should have magically transformed into a teenage boy before reading it I probably would have been appreciative In the first 10 15 minutes of list.

Ening to this book I had the
Sinking Feeling I Wasn T Going Tofeeling I wasn t oing to it But I had received the audio book in exchange for an honest review so I knew I would listen to the whole book even if it took me a month to et through it My initial reaction was SO WRONG The book became so entertaining it only took me 2 days to listen to the audio The characters were well developed and the authors description of the settings made you feel like you were there watching
the story unfold I enjoyed all the characters but the characterization ofstory unfold I enjoyed all the characters but the characterization of seven dragons was extraordinary The author expounded on the peculiarities brawn and vulnerabilities of each one transforming them into fascinating characters The perspicuous narration added an extra layer to the reading experience Each character and dragon had a distinctive voice that well matched the personality created by the author If you are looking for a fantasy that will o beyond the boundaries of reality I recommend you read Tesser I would have liked to Fallen Angel: The Passion of Fausto Coppi give the book 4 stars but the writing style and poor editing makes it only 3The story itself was very enjoyable but it could have been written better I found the writing style took away from what was ultimately a creative taleStill if you enjoy supernatural fantasies I would recommend this storyI wanted to expand this review just a bit I read the Kindle version and the editing was not soreat Character names were often mixed up clearly incorrectly used It was enough to be distracting from the story For some reason also the overall writing style didn t appeal to me It just seemed unclear in many places as though the descriptions meant to clarify certain details ended up making things convoluted rather than clearThat being said I did enjoy the story I mean who doesn clearThat being said I did enjoy the story I mean who doesn like dragonsAnd these dragons weren t just After Tamerlane: The Global History of Empire Since 1405 giant flying lizardsthese were intelligent magical beings who could pretty much be do anythingI enjoyed the origin story behind the dragons too It is definitely a different kind a tale and not what one would expect in a story of dragons It s magical and entertaining for sureSo I wouldive the book 35 stars overall The story definitely rates 4 stars just the execution rates 3 stars Hopefully if there are books to come in a series the author and editors can improve on those things However I think I would enjoy continuing to read about this world and these characters in future incarnations The prologue was okay but then it went WAAAAAY downhill from there The female characters were so one dimensional that it made me wonder. R last memories were of primordial forests erupting volcanoes sculpting a developing world faeries witches vampires krakens and monsters that feared where you turned your eyesBut all that is Alien Alpha gone Humans only barely coming into their own in the world from your memory have taken over They have erected cities made of stone and steel erupting from the earth like stalagmites reaching for the high blue sky and developed sciences that have oversha.
