You don't become a hero for the money. The money's nice, sure, but you become a hero because something inside compels you, drives you to it. Defending people from monsters simply doesn't pay well enough to make it a good career move.

As for hunting dragons... well, the money is usually good, but the job really bites.

A group of five professional heroes goes into the lair

What to say? This was a story that started off WAY different than I expected and THAT led to the rest of the story. These 5 adventurers (skills for each pulled out of every D & D type game you ever played) set off for a dragon slaying and things do not go exactly as planned, actually they don't even come close to the plan.

It was an engaging tale and the length of 215 pages seemed way underestimated for the story contained in them but I really enjoyed it and was wishing I had not grabbed this boo

Man, what an interesting set-up that failed almost completely for me. Look, there are a ton of really fun ideas in this book. But the writing is so flat, the dialogue so formal and fantasy-quest-like (you know what I mean) that it distances the reader so far that I didn't connect with anyone. I finished the book feeling like I hadn't gotten to know anyone, nor did I care about any of them or their endeavor to kill a random dragon. No one had a believable emotion. No one seemed to react at all to ...more

Five heroes are sent on a quest to kill a dragon in typical role playing fashion. We don’t really learn much about then and they find themselves in trouble from the start. But they keep going intent on reaching their goal.

This story reads just like following along with a role playing game. Someone dies, they are resurrected, and they all keep going. There is not a lot of character development and the dialog is rough. Overall I admit that I didn’t expect the direction that it went but it was a d

Dragon hunters, ghosts and mayhem, I thoroughly enjoyed this story and the wry humour of the characters in their interactions. The dragon is on a rampage to gather as much tribute and sacrifice as the land and terrified people can stand. The intrepid team of dragonhunters battle against tremendous adversity to complete their goal. Can they defeat the canny fierceness of the dragon?

The story kept me turning the pages and at times even chuckling out loud. The slips of grammar and word usage did no

A beautifully designed and dialogued story, full of humor, intelligence, courtesy, action, greed, drama, and a dragon. It also contains a catalystic cameo of a a beloved character to get things moving. The editing is good, and again - the dialogue is a joy. I may read it again just for all the snappy banter. If you could combine the movie “Topper” with a good solid RPG group, you might get something like this. Cheerfully and definitely recommended.

The story was good, but in parts it was tedious. There was obvious conflict that was portrayed well, but in some cases it tended to be repetitive. Poor editing caused a little confusion when i had to go back and reread something for clarification. With all the issues, it was still a good book, and ended well. Nice read.

I find my self wanting more!!

I enjoyed his night lord books so I gave this one a shot, it didn't disappoint! I find my self wanting to find out more about the world about the magic. It's a good read and it holds it's own as a standalone book, but I hope it gets more.

Good read.

Very unusual book! Very interesting book! Really enjoyed the difference in the characters. What do I like to have seen a sequel where they found whether dragon came from and what is happening with the invasion.

A great read.

A great read. Witty dialogue, an exciting plot, and interesting characters. An adventure novel with a refreshing twist. Particularly recommended for fans of The Dungeoneers, Tinker, or

Strange, but not uninteresting. I couldn't really get warm with the characters, don't know why, myself.
