I really enjoyed this unique book. I liked it more than the Daughter's of Eve series. In fact I would like a Dreoteth series...
So the idea of a dragon that can transform into man, in the very creature that a dragon abhors most is quite fascinating. Somehow it reminded me of our higher selves that in a way have to learn through the "weakness" of the lower selves. Dreoteth came out of his comfort zone to test himself, to learn and we all know learning never comes without suffering.
Excellent plot w

Dreoteth, a self-published book by Danielle Bourdon, is a dark fantasy, or perhaps fantastical horror about Humans and the creatures that prey on them.

The author has a struggle from the start. Bourdon chose to have a very unlikeable main character, in that he hates humans and humanity, and most importantly, eats them. This is quite a hurdle. Most protagonists are likable or at least someone that we as the reader can identify with. This is especially important in books with fantastical settings b

I came across this book purely by accident. I read the description, a few reviews and moved on. But for some reason just found myself coming back again and again until I broke down and bought it. I was not disappointed in the least. This book was so interesting I powered through it in a day, I just could not force myself to but it down. I cut phone calls short, and almost burned dinner over it (I do not recommend trying to cook and read at the same time, I've tried many times and it always ends ...more

This a great fantasy, the story is something I have never read and makes it so refreshing. I loved all the characters. None of them are dull and boring, especially Dreoteth. He is an enigma and I have to say I loved how he is written. The author steers this story expertly, and weaves a tale of such imagination you can't help but be drawn into the world she has created. I highly recommend Dreoteth if you are looking for something out of the ordinary.

i loved this storu. its short but well done for a self-published book. I grew quite attached to Dreoteth's character and the way he acted worked with with a dragon masquerading as a human. I wish it was longer and some editing would probably help but other than that, well done! greet one for fans of dragons =)
