Bitterwood has spent the past twenty years hunting down dragons, one at a time. But he is getting old and the hate that he has carried in his heart since a group of dragon-soldiers killed his family is beginning to fade. When he kills the royal prince dragon, the king decides the only retribution is genocide of the human race. Bitterwood is forced to enter the Free City, the grand trap designed to eradicate mankind, with thousands of others. Can he lead from within, or can a select few dragons unite to stop the king's madness from becoming reality. Full of rich characters and drama, this is an amazingly astute vision of our own culture by way of a feudal kingdom where dragons rule, and humans are used as workers or pets.… (lisätietoja)

Dreadful. Embarrassing audio quality, narration, just a total fail on every level. Avoid ( )

There's nothing wrong with this book. It just marks the moment when I stopped being able to care about new fantasy series. ( )

I picked this up because it seemed like a good concept of dragons ruling the world and having a lone antagonist hunting them. And it could have been, if executed correctly. This one fails.

I'm one who reads the prologue. It's still part of the story to me. So while reading it, I was trying to decide if this is an allegory for the bible or someone bible thumping in fantasy. (At least it interrupted the possible rape scene.) It was my first sign the book wouldn't work well for me.

The writer had me semi confused, as the dragons are described like they are in a human form. Or perhaps they are anthropomorphic in set up. The dragons speak of the humans doing the work for them. None of it had made for a compelling set up. The best part was when they did the whole hunt the human set up. But that quickly devolved into uselessness.

By page 66, I'd determined that the prologue has no bearing on the rest of the book. It attempted to create a legend of a character, however, it lacks the details to truly make it a legend.

With all my struggles, I thought I'd try the audio to see if it improved any... Even the audio book reader shows little inflection to his voice and sounds bored as he reads. I pushed to page 81, got thoroughly done with the whole waste of text and gave up. No compelling characters, a very dry and boring text. Nope. Dud. ( )

I found this book on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thanks for sharing!

The reason why I wanted to read this book was obvious - fantasy novel including gay relationship!

I like the other cover a lot more.

The story begins from the first meeting of the main characters which is not so common in fantasy. There is not a lot of introduction to the world created but we find out about it from conversation. I really wanted the narrator to see the world only trough Faran's eyes but alas, that's not the case. I think that weakens the story.

This is the world that is not scared of gay men and men who have feelings which is why it probably won't be very popular with the usual fantasy readers. But for those who like a well created world and not-so-typical story this is a good read (warnings for some sex scenes).

I would recommend this book to those who are captivated by the description, for those who have never read a fantasy novel that is more inclusive. It's a really relaxing read but I wanted it to be much longer.

I wish all the luck to the author and I hope that this is only the beginning for interesting relationships in fantasy.

tree stars for originality and nice writing. ( )

I'm not sure why I'm not enthusiastic about this book. It's a nice story, with a few twists that are rather surprising. Well, until you've read the hints that is. The book tends to lift the veil a bit, and afterwards to explain the entire thing. Unfortunately, after the veil has been lifted, the idea is pretty much clear. Perhaps the problem is that the goal of the book is to assemble the puzzle, and that the characters feel as pieces of the puzzle because of that. As a result, I can't really care about them. At the end (the last quarter or so), I wanted to finish the book to see how the last loose ends would be tied together, not because I really cared. Still, the ideas in the book are a nice surprise, and not what you'd expect when you start reading. And it's really not that badly written, so I expect others will have a higher opinion of this book.
