In the third and final instalment of of 'The Dragon Apocalypse' Maxey once again comes up trumps, as with the previous two novels the worlds and realities created are expanded upon and stretched to their absolute limits, from the opening chapter on Maxey delivers faultless high fantasy in an effortless fashion. The characters that were previously essential to carrying through the massive story lines aren't all necessarily kept on for the sake of familiarity or convenience, instead pushing old an ...more

Witchbreaker is the third in James Maxey's Dragon Apocalypse series. I tremendously enjoyed the previous two books, Greatshadow and Hush , and I was really looking forward to this book, which I thought was the concluding volume. The good news is that Witchbreaker is just as fun as the other books; the bad news is that although it is the last volume, the story ends on an open-ended note. It makes for a dissatisfying ending to a fabulous series and I'm hoping that Maxey will return to this worl ...more

As is my usual preamble, I received this book as part of a GoodReads giveaway. In fact, I would like to thank the author once again because not only did he send me this book in specific, but also the two predecessors as well. Despite this very kind consideration, I give my honest feedback below.

So, you’ve no doubt noticed that in addition to this book I also made my way through the previous two books the author sent along. When I received the unexpectedly voluminous package in the mail I will ad

I somewhat doubted that this third book in this series could be pulled off after reading the end of the second, but this was very, very well done. Maxey is very talented writer who seems to not get the credit he deserves. This series is soooo good and really needs to continue.

This book focused on a minor character from the 2nd novel and though I had my doubts Maxey worked his magic. He even wove in a few scenes with the previous main character which I enjoyed.

The thing I think I like the best ab

I admit to coming to this novel skeptically. The first two books in the series were wonderful, and the second novel granted such an excellent sense of closure that I didn't want to continue--particularly with newish characters who are, shall we say, "lacking" in certain heroic traits. I find it perplexing that this is to be the final novel in the series, particularly since we've changed narrative perspectives in this book. However, Maxey manages to make the antihero, Sorrow, into a character I d ...more

c2012: FWFTB: weaving, dragon, decay, primal, Sorrow. Utterly engrossing whilst I was reading it and I loved the turnaround of Sorrow. I knew that this wasn't going to be higher than a 3 stars, though, when I couldn't actually remember the ending a day after finishing the book. But I did remember Stagger! And one of the scenes was very reminiscent of a scene I watched during the original 'V' series on TV. Recommended to the normal crew. "A wriggling rat had been a horrifying meal, but it wasn't ...more

I was under the impression that this was the end of this series. It is not. This saddens and excites me at the same time. I'm glad to have one more to read, but I really thought things were going to be wrapped up this book. Plus I don't want to wait for the next installment. But enough bitching. Much like my previous reviews on this series I'll say this: corny as hell premise and wildly over the top fantasy, but great characters, character development and plot keep this adventure rolling right a ...more

I would like to thank Mr. James Maxey for sending the first 2 books when I was told that I was a Goodreads winner of book #3. I tried to read book 3 so I could get a review up but I couldnt get into the book bcause I didnt know what was going on. So I had to start at book#1. With book #1 and 2 read I was able to get into the book # better and I have to admit that I was really drawn into the book. It was one of those books that I didnt know if I was going to like because it was outside of the mai ...more

I'm torn on this one. On one hand, it had some truly amazing descriptions and a pretty solid plot. On the many of the character interactions felt more like philosophical rants forced by the author than genuine character expressions. I found myself skipping page after page of this just to get to the good parts. Still, it's a solid series with an awesome setting. Worth the read, if you can stomach the stream of existential debate.

Yeah, watching Sorrow travel through the world after the events of the previous books really opened my thinking to how the characters interact and seeing how the world responds to them.

The primal dragons are crazy and and insane and magnificent in the way the author portrays them. Awesome

Peace out

I look so forward to book 4. One of my all time favorite series. I wouldn't normally pick up a series like this but so glad book 1 was lent to me. I'm right there with the characters from front to back.

I've been an avid reader since I first picked up a book. Luckily, I was within biking distance of three different libraries growing up. I was a skinny kid. If only I had maintained that link between biking and reading, I might be a skinny adult.

I'm also a writer. I wrote my first book as a kid, an adventure about pirates and ghosts. When I was a teenager, I used to write superhero adventures. The
