Aslında dört yıldız verecektim çünkü bazı olaylar çok hızlı gelişti, bazı karakterler birden kendi içlerindeki düğümleri çözüverdiler falan. Ama neyse sonunda yazarlar beni üzmediler bu yüzden beş yıldız veriyorum.

Weis ve Hickman hayranı olarak ne yazsalar okumaya çalışıyorum. Ejdergemisi serisi fantastik bir Odysseus öyküsü. Tanrılar tarafından hem kutlanan hem lanetten Skylan ve arkadaşlarının dünyalarını ve tanrılarını korumak için başladıkları maceranın 3. Kitabını da bir solukta okudum. Umarım bu kez seriyi düzgün şekilde bitirmeyi başarırlar çünkü yarattıkları mükemmel serilerin hiç birinin sonu beni mutlu etmedi....

Tgis was a pretty good 3rd book of a series. Weis and Hickman as usual wrote a great book and I cant wait to see where this series leads us. Skylan is a pretty good lead character but I like Aylaen better and Wulfe ranks up their withlembeck Boltightener as a secondary character. But no one, snd I do mean no one, from any book series can top tasslehoff burrfoot!

Enjoying the adventures of Skylan and his friends immensely. D&D Vikings with a magical ship, continuing to adventure and travel the world they inhabit. A good and original tale so far.

I'm a sucker for Weis and Hickman. Nothing special, but great mindless fantasy. And there are dragons!

Now this is the third instalment in the Dragonships of Vidras-series. It continues the tale of Aylaen and Skylan. The story in itself is as interesting as in the previous books and it is a joy to read. But there are a few problems with the plot or the subplots, to be precise. I really did not like how the romantic aspect evolved in this book. It somehow nullified everyhting that has happened thus far. Also there were some annoying and unrealistic things that happened...

All in all, this is still

Fun times, with much, much more time spent in the despicable company of Raegar and Treia than I would have expected. While reading that ending battle I was leaning toward a 4 star rating on the strength of the Atlantean adventures and such BUT...(view spoiler)

I bought this book in a warehouse booksale. My perception of this book is probably flawed by their very first mistake. Their cover did not state what book this was in the series which I really hate because I'm a chronological order freak. Worse if there was a continuation from previous books. I was thrown right in the middle of the battlefield with names like Aelyeon and Aelon... It was difficult at first but quickly remembered who was which. I did not see how much the characters have grown from ...more

When I picked this up I thought it was the final part of the trilogy, so imagine my surprise when I realized it was instead the third part of a quartet. It does explain why a large part of the first half of the book feels like filler, though. While the main character, Skylan, has grown a whole lot since the first book and has grown into a very enjoyable character, the novel spins its wheels for the first half, especially when it switches POV completely in Book Two. Once it switches back, however ...more
Strangely, nothing really happened in this book compared to the previous two. The underwater part was slow, boring, and didn't do anything for me at all. The long parts with Raegar were also more than tedious, I really had to work to get past that part and back to the actual story. I say "story" lightly as it was really just plot cleanup from the previous book and setup for the next book.

Basically this was filler and some transition with a bit of a shock ending that didn't shock me. (view spoile

A great adventure!
It doesn't even matter that this is the third in a series and I hadn't read the first two. I admit, at the beginning, some of the references to past adventures were lost on me, but I quickly caught on to it all.
Farinn is my favorite character too! All I can tell you is he's 16 and fae. He is a delight, but not heard from much. I do hope later on there will be a book just about him.
At the end was a sad part, for like a millisecond, then you get another twist. I love when a book

I love the series, but I hate when you cann't find any information on the next book in the series. This is the 2nd time to start the series not relizing it wasn't completed. I don't always check the computer before I check them out and start reading them. I would wait until the rest of the series come out before starting this series.

Finished reading " Rage of the Dragon " As with every novel by Weiss/Hickman I have loved it. This is supposed to be a six part series but novels 5 and 6 have been cancelled and #4 is in Limbo. I am hoping that they are able to do the 4th novel...otherwise it will be a sadly unfinished masterpiece.

Great book

I have read the first two and could hardly put them down, now that I got this one I couldn't put it down either. I would suggest it to anyone that loves fantasy. you will find action, romance, humor, and more in this series. the authors know how top weave a brilliant tale of intrigue.

I think the book was disadvantaged by not starting at the beginning of the series. I just didn't feel very absorbed in the story despite having interesting moments. Might be better if I started with book one, but I'll probably move on to something else...

Better than okay! The 3rd book and the on-going story is riveting. looking to the next book... what happens next? What a cliffhanger?!

Vintage Weis-Hickman. Good characters and action. A quick and enjoyable read; I am looking forward to reading the next one.

This was terrible. I read books 1 and 2. This is #3. I'll have to read #4. Good job you two.

I like some of the Norse aspects worked into story. Fun to read but otherwise I was not finding much meaning in the story.

Not their best work ever but I very much enjoy following this story.

Have to read 2nd in the series Secret of the Dragon
I think I've waited too long in between reading this series. I remember some things but have forgotten others. Good book, I'm not huge in sci-fi but I do enjoy these stories.

I didn’t realize this was the third book in the series. I might have enjoyed it more if I had read some of the earlier works. That said its a good, solid story; abet not overly creative.

They are evil! Why did they give us that giant cliff hanger, and then tell us the last book comes out in 2013?
