I was actually impressed, in general, with the quality of writing in this indie book. That said, I do believe that there were still enough errors to be distracting and this book could really use further editing. I noticed the errors increasing as the book went on.

I will say that I wasn't sure what to think initially about the book based on the cover alone. However, I was happily surprised to read an engaging tale packed with action! I enjoyed several of the characters in this story and felt like

Let me start by saying that when I cracked this book open, I immediately knew it was one of the better written indie books I've read. The world building is probably the book's strongest point, in my opinion - you're thrown into a world that's clearly very complex and very realistic, complete with its own sayings and a rich history. I was really intrigued by the fact that many of the characters in The Blood Prince are human-dragon hybrids called dragumen; and they, too, were well developed and in ...more

I got a copy of this for a fair and honest review. I had a few doubts when I was asked to read this by the author. But it was about dragons and rebellions.

As I began reading this book, I was interested in the world built by the author. She obviously put a lot of thought and planning into building this world and the people who live here. The distrust between the different races of dragomen (half dragon, half human) and their claims to superiority over each other seems very realistic. Also, the divisive class structure placing dragomen above humans is all too familiar. One complaint I had was the use of world-specific terminology without explaining ...more

**I received a copy of this book for free from the author, in exchange for an honest review.

I’m going to begin with the strengths of this book. First is the world building – you can tell that the author has put a great amount of thought into her world. It is confident in itself, has a solid magic system, and has an intriguing dragon race that I enjoyed learning about.
The characters, as a whole, were dynamic, although a couple of them were slightly irritating. Alexander was the most frustrating t

Wish it was more

I don't even know what I read. Nothing was memorable and I was lost with so many characters begin added out of nowhere.
