The Dragons of the Cuyahoga is the first book by S. Andrew Swann featuring newspaper reporter Kline Maxwell, who usually covers the political beat in Cleveland, OH, never the "fuzzy gnome" stories. What are the...more
I am a native Clevelander, suburbanite for the last 20 years, but do know my area well. This book covers Cleveland well, from polotics to geography, it's all here. This is 2 novels in one volume,and they deal with the idea that a portal to an other realm, the realm of dragons, elves, dwarves, etc. appears in Cleveland during a football game at the Browns Stadium. 10 years later, the fall out is still happening, and it falls to a political reporter who gets asigned the story of a dragon crash lan...more
More fantasy novels should be set in Cleveland. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, and the way the Portal affected Cleveland. Hopefully this author will delve more into this world!
10/19/09: This book has two stories in it. I read the first one and liked it. I wanted to read something else before reading the second story.
11/17/09: I finished the second story and thought it was okay too. It started out kind of slow but then seemed to pick up steam.

I only read the first book. It's an interesting take on the politics of an urban fantasy setting. The mystery part seemed pretty honest (though I'm not the most clueful so it may be blatantly obvious to others).

It's okay. Not really my taste. No romance and almost no female characters. Very dry. The style is very journalistic (fact finding after fact finding) which makes sense since the main character is a journalist.
Fun and interesting plot. Funny characters
