I know I’ve been away from my blog for a few days, but it’s because I’ve been writing, among other things.


When we last left off on our journey, I was going to share with you working on the “bad guys”, because they always require the most attention.  While Adicus Schinagel is a black wizard, Heinrich Himmler is the representative of all things evil with Nazi Germany, perhaps as m...

“I've had the immense pleasure of knowing Thaddeus for over 4 years now. In that time I have experienced his incredible powers of observation, his wisdom, and his wonderful sense of humor. Yet he is quick to remind me that he is a dragon and therefore is prone to look at things differently. Oh, and his appetite for ...300+ Krispy Kreme donuts every morning can be a bit trying at times.”

It is hard work to find writer with ability to write military missions in Icelandic sea. Before any written word, Derek Hart researched history of Iceland and it is not easy at all. More than that. Writer must love some country to do same project and I can say it for Derek. He deserve to publish this and other books in Iceland too. He will.

Congratulation Derek.

Andres Zoran Ivanovic I still reading Derek´s books two but first critic is promising for other than non English speaking public. We know about many English languages. His books are wrote on some way to every body with some English knowledge can understand it. I can´t say it for some difficult texts in specialising magazines or books.

I wish you good luck in your career way Derek.

Andres

By the way, they have a goodreads group too. I joined yesterday. Great way to network between the two.

Thanks,

Derek I promise I won't do this very often, but I'm very proud of this review.

A Winner!

SECRET OF THE DRAGON'S EYE is a superb WWII fantasy that hooks the audience in two ways. First, the description of early WWII England, mostly through the eyes of Bunty, makes for a vivid anchored historical. When Thaddeus enters their lives, the story line adds fantasy elements to it. Mindful of Naomi Novik's Temeraire saga, readers who appreciate something different in their war novels will enjoy fine historical fantasy.

Derek Daniel:

Wow! Thank you very much for adding 5 titles to your reading List.

I must say, you have very good taste. Now don't laugh, but out of 15 novels, you picked 4 of my absolute favorites. Especially Tales of the Yellow Silk and Crooked Cross Factor. In every case, I will be looking forward to reading your reviews.

Thanks again!
Derek


Daniel
Hey Derek, I've added A Favor for FDR, Secret of the Dragon's Eye, Crooked Cross Factor, Tales of the Yellow
Silk
and last but not least, your other book Tangles of Truth to my to-read list.

Derek Thank you for the kind words, Kristina. It means a lot to me that you enjoyed Secret of the Dragon's Eye, because I wrote the series with young adults in mind, even though OLD adults would enjoy it too! LOL

It's great working with you and continued success in all your endeavors. Goodreads is a fantastic place, I just wish I had more time to spend here, to review all my books and read even more.

Thanks again!
Derek


Kristina I really enjoyed Mr. Hart's book, Secret of the Dragon's Eye: Book One. He has been a great colleague to network with.
