Rachel doesn't know what's weirder - that there's a dragon in the woods by her school, or that Scott Morrison actually thinks she's beautiful. Or maybe it's the elves. Yeah, it's totally the elves.

It was an ordinary weekday for Rachel Hampton. You know, like every day - you wreck your bike on the way to school because the gorgeous queen snot of the universe slams on the brakes of her spanky little convertible right in front of you, so you swerve to miss her and get run over by Scott "Oh My God" Morrison who is so nice and so cute and so out of your league. Then there's dodgeball in gym, which not even getting in a bike v. car argument earlier in the day will get you out of, because your gym teacher is a sadist, and of course then you hear the explosions, because no matter how much you scream at your geologist father, he can't stop the mining company he works for from blowing the top off a nearby mountain and destroying the environment, but it's West Virginia, so it's not like explosions are a new thing around here.

But then the dragon wakes up. And everything gets really, really weird.

Fireheart is a new standalone novel from John G. Hartness, the award-winning author of The Black Knight Chronicles and the Quincy Harker, Demon Hunter series.

A very good novella

This was a very nice read. The ending, however, felt a bit rushed. Honestly it would have been a 5 star book with about an extra 250 pages. It would have enabled the author to flesh out the characters more. But I still enjoyed the read.

Wow! I have enjoyed some of John Hartness' books in the past, but this is not one of them. It was made all the worse by the Audio Narrator, she did a poor job of character voices, to the point that it was jarring me out of the story, to take note of the person reading the book, rather than the book they were reading.

There is a bit in the story, where a character is reading an "Urban Fantasy Novel", which is described as Ok, but "nothing to write home about." Where I was wondering if the author was breaking the 4th wall and describing this book, optimistically.

I won't be soured on John Hartness by this one example of his work. And will look forward to his other titles. As this by far was not his best work, I don't think I'll even be tentative about trying his other work, just from one I didn't enjoy.

This is an early Hartness book, one he holds up as example at con panels as all the mistakes he made while learning his craft. And, yep, lots of mistakes. Developmental editing and time issues (like that most beginning authors make when first learning to write action-packed plots.

He has grown so much as an author in the past half-decade that unless you are wanting to actually study the mistakes he has made, you should give this one a pass. The problem with evergreen eBooks is they never go away.

I gave up on this one; it was too juvenile for me. Might have enjoyed it when I was 12.
