Peace and diplomacy overcoming conflict and distrust is one of my favorite themes. And this book is all about that. About the friendship and trust between two young people of different species triumphing over doubt, violence, and anger.

The elements of guilt and forgiveness were very well done. People can make terrible mistakes, and people can be reformed. It's very important to see that issues like this are not black-and-white; there are good and bad people on both sides, and cooler heads must

This is a nice read inspired by "The Dragonriders of Pern" by Anne McCaffrey. It flows well and sets the reader up for future "tails". I enjoyed Hansen's dragons and, altough I have yet to read "Dragonriders of Pern" myself, I think McCaffrey would be pleased at F.J.'s nod to her world of dragons. Well done, friend!

Recommends it for: anyone who likes a good sci-fi fantasy
I have rad this book at least 10 times it is as epic as any dragon rider book yet manages to avoid the who idea of dragon riders

Okay, it's been a while since I last wrote a review, but I think this book deserves a full one (it's also been some time since I finished this book, so please bear that in mind as well).

SUMMARY OF REVIEW: A story of friendship and overcoming prejudice between dragons and space-faring humans. Hansen is a talented independent author, who writes realistic, dragons and human characters. The prose is solid and emotive, although a few errors slip through here and there, which is only to be expected

Usually, when someone lists something, let’s say for a well organized public speech about authors, they say things like, “There are three different types of authors…” And I always thought when someone said that, there really were only “three different types of authors.” But the truth is that there are infinite types of authors and you can usually taste their personality through the paper (or in my case, the nook touch screen). That’s how F. J. Hansen came across to me. Being this is his first ...more

F. J. Hansen's book didnt turn out how I thought it would but it wasn't bad at all. Don't judge the cover for the qaulity of the book. Varthikes was a real interest for me and Audwin and his friendship really inspire. The deput novel in Dragonia is fast paced and reminds me of "A Beautiful Friendship" by David Weber; In fact, that is how I was recommended this book.

Somethings that really bugged me however was how the point of view kept on changing. Maybe between like 8 characters, that is just

Review Draconian book 1:
Just finished the first book and loved it have always thought Dragonriders of Pern was tops but found this book it's equal . The story is so well written that you want to not stop until you are finished. And at the end you want to start the next one at once because the interaction between the people and the dragons is totally engrossing. Can't wait to start the next one.

It definitely put a twist on the typical draconian folklore. I'm usually not one for science fiction, but this was a very good combination. Mr. Hansen, you need to finish the next book!

I was born and raised in Fremont, and I still live there. I am the youngest of seven children--three brothers, three sisters.

I grew up around science fiction, particularly Star Trek. By 1994, when I was 8, I already had a well developed interest in science fiction, and I started collecting Micro Machine spaceships. With these Micro Machines, I came up with my own Star Trek adventures. A few years
