The Demon Tamer
The legends tell of a small village created by the Gods, where life flows without death stopping it. The Adults hide a great secret: on the mountains lives an evil Dragon, guardian of an ancient power, and it is said that he only eats children. In the darkness of the night, moved by the lust for this power, the Demons invade the i ...more
The writing wasn't particularly flowery, but more straight forward and to the point. The characters were interesting, there was plenty of battles and action to keep the story moving at a good pace.

I was sent a copy of the book by the author for a review. The Demon Tamer follows the adventures of Damian, a unique blend of gods and humans and dragons (kind of??) as he tries to figure out who he is and what his purpose is. If you love all kinds of mythology then this really is the book for you because just like the main character, there's a little bit of everything here.
