FIRST I GOT THE BOOK FREE TO READ AND I CAN SAY YOU WILL BE ABLE TO GET IN THE BOOK WITH THE DRAGON AND THEN THE WHO OWN THEM. THE BOOK I 22 CHAPTER BUT ONCE YOU READ THE BOOK YOU GET IN TO THE CHARACTER AND THEN THEY HAVE UP AND DOWN AND THEN SEE IF YOU CAN GET IN TO THE DRAGONS MIND.

Dragonborn is an amazing story. It’s a fantastical story. A story that would draw the reader in and enthrall them with its intensity… only the story isn’t written like that at all. I’m a fan of “show, don’t tell” writing, and Rines’ novel is not that at all. Though the story is intriguing, though I wanted to be attached to the characters and to feel with them at every turn, I almost felt as though I was not allowed to, because the writer hadn’t fully realized them.

The story itself is not what I

Dragonborn is a great story. The plot is strong and the story is engaging. However, this did not flow like a book. There is too much time spent on characters that become inconsequential. The story is so full of historic, and sometimes useless, information that this book was just way to small to hold it all. I felt no emotional attachment to any of the characters, regardless of what they were going through. I did not know who the book was about until around halfway through the book. Personally, I ...more

Ancient as starlight on the Liansea horizon, formidable forces drive the actions of gods and men. The legacy of fear etched in the hearts of mortals cannot sway the primal passion forged in the union of god Fayet and the magic bearing mortal Ayshir. But the void between the stars…waits. Hungry. Palpable. Sinister and singularly focused in its goal to consume life, light and love. Author Whitney Rines has created an atmospheric tale that will both warm and chill the reader.

If you enjoy a strong fantasy setting, and the meddling of gods in the affairs of mortals, then Dragonborn is the book for you. Captivating from start to end I found myself unable to put it down once started. I only wish it were longer!

I am a firm believer in not giving out spoilers so if you want to know what happens to Ayshir and those around her, you'll simply have to read it yourself. I'll be keeping an eye out for future books by Whitney Rines, that's for sure.

A darkly beautiful tale, with unique characters. If you are expecting something in the vein of Lord of the Rings this is not it. This is a fantasy that is something far darker and more sinister. The character Chiron is my absolute favorite!!!

I really enjoyed this book. I liked the passage of time explained to these gods in the early part of this book.

*I received this book free via booktasters in exchange for my honest review. This review contains my honest thoughts and have not been influenced.*

Dragonborn was a pretty good read. The story focuses more towards the God Fayet, who falls for a mortal named Ayshir. Before we learn about Ayshir, we learn how Fayet received his fate of godhood. Fayet, along with his sister Lizia two other received the role of godhood from Cabbah [god of chaos], but with a twist made them Gods in servitu

Dragonborn is a young adult novel written about a God names Fayet falling in love with a mortal woman named Ayshir. The story revolves around the repercussions that they face over the family they build. The fantasy story takes you into various dimensions of worlds which can only be imagined through the graphic nature of its literature, the characters are relatively relatable and thought to provoke.



I have read similar style stories like this, and so, it did not stand out for me as a

The story starts off pretty well and is intriguing; but ultimately turned out to be what I was expecting. However there are plenty of twists and turns to the story as it goes on that are unexpected. Although the characters are written rather well, I felt that I did not know them enough to understand their decisions or 'root' for them in their fight against the darker, sinister forces. The strains on a relationship that derive from one being mortal (Ayshir)and the other immortal (Fayet) is also l ...more

This is one incredible story. It's dark and complex and multi-faceted. If you want my complete review with some spoilers, check out my Amazon review of this title.
I have no hesitation in awarding five stars to Dragonborn, Between Gods and Mortals Book 1. The title tells you this is the first of a series. It also gives fair warning that this is indeed a story about the relationships between the all-powerful, life-changing or life-destroying gods of the ancient Greek times and the mere mortals th

Mentally unsettling but convincingly brilliant literary piece, done in the most unconventional way. It’s a story about gods, magic, punishment, and the most surreal romance, as if that's not the ideal recipe for a great fiction.
Dragonborn has it all in such a high addictive dose, I only hated being jolted to realty at the last page. Dragonborn magically immerses you in the amazing world of gods and their plight, allowing you to generously explore their environment and affairs unhindered. The ad

It's a very sad story for both Fayet and Ayshir.I feel like its even worse for Ayshir,she has had really rough but she never learns anything.She is impulsive, selfish and dramatic.All she cares about is herself and her own needs.How does one lock themselves up for months on end and not see her children?
As for Fayet,well I don't get his character really.It's not that strong,he really cares about his wife,not so much about the kids or himself,
Overall,the book is sad makes you wanna cry

Get ready to have your perception teleported to the consciousness of the gods. See existence from a different unaccounted angles, like never before. The storyline has combined humanity, immortality, terror, gods, and uncanny tragic love in an exciting narrative. In my opinion, Dragonborn narrates from a wildly inhuman point of view, yet portrayed so realistically you have to constantly remind yourself it says 'fiction' on it's covers. It plot and storyline expresses clear but subtle unmistakable ...more

The Book has a good start, but others books I have read this one jumps somewhat before you can become one with the characters. I feel as the series builds ,the author will work on character development and can become a multiple series if done right. This book reminds me of Eragon . I would love this get be publish as a audio book. My favorite character is Mavin due to his strength.
Also is there gooding to be any development of Liansea other than becoming a God?

If you are one of those who seek fantasy, action and mystery, you have reached the right book. Here the magic goes through the whole story, where you can recreate in your mind all the events without problems. Everything is very graphic and well explained. If you are looking for a story like this you have come to the right one.

I live in Anchorage, AK with my husband, son and our pets: a cat named Nami, and a python named Archie. I enjoy telling a good story as much as much as I love reading one. Fantasy, Horror/Occult, Sciene-fiction, and especially mythology and the classics, I love them all. I also enjoy reading nonfiction in all spectrums from history, to biographies, book-length essays on different genres, and scien ...more
