Dragonmaster (Dragonmaster #1)
The plot is highly ambitious but otherwise original and creative
The adjectives, verbs and nouns that glue the words together are of very low quality. The speech patterns are even worse and erroneous - possibly more amateur then debut novelists that just graduated from school. Yet this is comin...more

Not gonna lie, it's not a brilliant work of literature, but from memory it had interesting and action-packed plotlines. I enjoyed the strategic plotting, that's stuff always entertaining. I could easily see their series as a film or TV show, it think it...more

#I loved everything about dragon thats why I choose this book for my next reading. At first it looked promising, but in the end it fell short. Its a story about a man, that may or may not have special ability, that want to be a dragon rider. Usually dragon theme is synonym with magic, but not in this book. magic is not the main ingredient here, just a background scene. Even the dragons don't have a special ability/magic in them. Mostly this book tell a story about the man and the war.#
Well, what to say...I didn't last long with this book...put it down after page 30.
I was expected to be transported into another world, to be introduced to an amazing character/s, and to travel with those characters through their trials and tribulations.. Not this book.
If you're into fantasy, Robert Jordan, Lorna Freeman, and David Drake (so far) are much better...
I really like the story and plot. Although predictable at times it was a good blend of Historical War fantasy and Dragons!
I am now looking for book 2
