Uh-oh, another review from one of the guy's responsible for this little project. I am happy with the art I put together for this book, but I am even more impressed with the love and time that went into the crafting of the story and it's characters. This is not the perfect package, it is a first for all of us, but what fun would this be if there were no room for growth and nothing to look forward to.

Okay, I know what you are thinking, five stars says the person who wrote it. I get it, I'm incredibly biased. SO WHAT!!! Read it for yourself and tell me what you think.

This review was also posted on my blog along with an interview with the author. You can check it out HERE.

My first thought on finishing this book was, "Wow, that was just like an RPG!" For those of you who aren't quite as immersed in geekdom as I am, an RPG is a role-playing game. There are tabletop games, like Dungeons and Dragons, and video games like Final Fantasy. I am a huge fan of video game RPG's, so when I say that this book was like an RPG, it's definitely a compliment. The best RPG's a

I completely loved it!!!!!!

The summary
Basically it starts with Draygon tracking Zekiel and Ness. On his journey he meets several interesting people who little by little help him uncover the bigger picture and the risk the kingdoms were in. Zekiel and Ness have a journey of their own trying to avoid the bounty hunter who is following them and finding out what does the amulet Zekiel found truly does.

The plot
I loved the story line.. it developed so nicely and kept you interested all the time. I c

(This got a 4.5 on my blog, which translates to a 4 stars here on GoodReads.)

You know... I liked it. I usually have more to say leading into my reviews, but in this instance, I don't. It had an interesting world that was fairly well built through the text. The writing was fluid, moved along at a nice pace and kept my interest. I'm not a big fan of pictures in my novels, but those were still interesting.

I had a few small issues with it.

1) It did take me a while to "hook into" the main characters.

Wow... I just... Wow...

5/5 stars

First of all I really liked this book, and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes reading about adventures and magic beings.
Now, on to the review…
At the begginnig it was kind of hard for me to follow the storyline, it seemed a little slow, but not to far from the start, it begun to be faster and more interesting by the minute. That’s the only ‘negative’ thing I have to say about this book.
As someone who has read quite a few of this kind of books, I usually can

Bottom line up front: this book ranks number 1 amongst all fantasy novels I've read up to this point; with a few Dragonlance novels and the Eragon series falling behind. Although Riding's and Mullikin's first book isn't perfect, it's a solid start with a promising future.

When I started reading it, I immediately put my hands on my shaking head. There's nothing unique about a war between humans and magic users with villains so powerful that their names should not be spoken, and I was pretty sure

A great fantasy book with a lot of twists and turns, betrayal and unexpected plots.
+ I loved the way the author introduces the characters. First you get a description of the appearance, then a bit of information about the character and after a page or so you discover the name of the characters. Kevin Mullikin manages to do this in a way without getting you confused or irritated who this person is. A rare gift!
+ I liked the characters and loved the fact how they all are somehow 'bound' to each

I saw this book advertised under an "author giveaway" on this website, so I looked it up on google and saw that the ebook was selling for $2.99. I decided to give it a whirl seeing as if it ended up sucking at least I was only out three bucks. Instantly I was impressed by the quality of the artwork. The story follows an angry bounty hunter looking for two sorcerers who killed his family. It sounds unoriginal, but the authors did an outstanding job of creating a whole new experience with only min ...more

This book was recommended to me by a friend. Although I enjoy the fantasy genre, it's not normally my first choice when it comes to reading a new book. I bought the ebook on my Kindle and decided to check it out. The story takes place in a fascinating world ruled by 4 different kings(I'm not sure if it's supposed to be earth of another planet). Like anywhere, there seem to be conflicts between various rulers, and by the end of reading the prologue the reader understands that some crazy stuff is ...more

Ok.... i recieved this book free through making connections group, the author Kevin Mullikin was kind enough to give me this book for an honest review.

The characters are very well developed,they have a lot of depth to their structure and their morals, as does the main plot of the book, though a bit complex it adds to the appeal of the book.The fights really stir your imagination and make you want more.

All in all it was an interesting read, i recommend this book to people who like fantasy And act

I loved it! From the very beginning it was action-packed with interesting characters. (I love Draygon!) It is such a well-developed plot with some interesting twists and turns I could not see coming. All in all, this is one of the books that I have to put on my favorites list! I CANNOT WAIT FOR THE NEXT IN THE SERIES!!! If you love fantasy and action...THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU!
