Dreamtime Dragons Anthology
Dreamtime Dragons - Nils Visser

by Nils Visser et al

 

This is an outstanding collection of stories, all having to do with dragons in some way. The stories are from twelve different authors so styles vary, but there wasn't a dud in the bunch. One by the editor was written in present tense, but it was actually done well which is rare.

 

I've read a few of the authors before so I knew I could expect above average quality for at least some, but I was pleasantly surprised overall. I've added A.J. Noon to my favorite author list and sent for samples of his other work. I do like a bit of humor in my Fantasy!

 

The editing was also above average, even for big publisher books. I counted four minor typos for the whole book, plus two in the author bio section. I bet they didn't check there!

 

It was an enjoyable collection and included sample chapters from some of the authors' other books as well, but they were self-contained segments that didn't leave me wondering what was going on.

 

It's also good knowing that any money generated from the project is going to a ferret rescue center. So a good read and something to help animals. Win-win! And the cover art is amazing!

Dragons Rule in The Book of Genevieve by Mark Boyd #MarkBoyd
The Book of Genevieve - Mark Boyd

Dragon stories always catch my attention, and this is one you will not want to miss.

 

The Book of Genevieve, Book II of A Dragon’s Tale by Mark Boyd is filled with fantasy adventure. You can see my review for The Prophecy, Book I, HERE.

 

Check out the lovely covers. What do you think?

MY REVIEW

 

The Book of Genevieve by Mark Boyd is the second of A Dragon’s Tale Trilogy. I loved the first one, so I was very happy to continue the journey with Genevieve.  Because this is the second book of the series and there is so much wonderful fantasy in store for you, I do not want to give anything away. I will just tell you how I felt as I read along

 

I couldn’t help but smile when Mark states that all Genevieve wanted were breasts and a normal life. BUT, there is a Prophecy to be fulfilled and she is part of it.

 

We have elves, Pegasaurs, dragons, demons, vampires, werehounds, trolls, dwarves and two brothers that I fell in love with, Aer and Loer.

 

I loved when Genevieve and Leto showcased their swordplay, the crowd wildly cheering them on. I could see it like a film playing in my mind. So much fun…as is her first ride on her dragon, soaring, swooping, loop-de-looping, laughing all the way.

 

I got lost in their fantasy world of new friendships and new alliances. The more characters I met, the more friends I made. Some are rough and gruff, some are easy going, some are young, some are old.

 

The magical creatures are drawn together to fulfill the Prophecy. Some will die, especially sad about the one, but as some pass on, new babes are born.

 

I can hardly wait to learn the ending of this does not stand alone trilogy in Mishmakor, The Dragon King.

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of The Book of Genevieve by Mark Boyd.

If you thought the e-book was good...
A Destiny of Dragons - By (author) TJ Klune,Michael Lesley

You really, really need to listen to this one on audio...

 

When this was first released back in June of this year I read it...there was no way I was waiting any longer for more Sam, Knight Delicious-face, Gary, Kevin and Tiggy and I loved it the story was all kinds of epic and awesome and I distinctly remember writing a rather effusive review...pictures were included, here's the link if you're curious...

Review: A Destiny of Dragons

 

Michael Lesley was the narrator for 'A Destiny of Dragons' and while I was totally enchanted with his narration in 'The Lightening Struck Heart' (TLSH) the first book in this series...I'm pretty much convinced that with the second book Mr. Lesley has exceeded my expectations. While I would have loved being able to listen to 'TLSH' again before jumping into the second book time just didn't permit that luxury but Michael Lesley's recreation of the voices for TJ Klune's unique characters in this series easily and effortlessly took me back to Verania with all it's magic and intrigue.

 

While I've listened to roughly 160+ audiobooks and I've become far more comfortable with what does or doesn't work for me in this format. I still don't profess myself to be any kind of an expert on anything other than what I like or love as the case might be in this instance. I truly couldn't imagine anyone else capturing the feel of this story better than Mr. Lesley has.

 

When I first listened to 'The Lightening Struck Heart' at the encouragement of  a friend...she was so insistent that she actually went to the extent of gifting the audiobook to me...thank heavens for persistent friends or I might still be missing out on this treasure. I was so incredibly surprised by how much I enjoyed the audiobook...I'd already read the book so I knew I'd like the story but Michael Lesley's narration took this story to a whole new level for me so needless to say I read 'A Destiny of Dragons' and loved it and then I heard from a certain persistent friend that once again Michael Lesley was going to be the narrator...so needless to say...SIGN ME UP! I was so on board to listen to the audiobook. What I truly wasn't expecting was that I would enjoy this one even more than I did 'TLSH" on audio...I truly didn't think it was possible. Apparently...I was wrong because this one wasn't as good for me the audiobook was even better. 

 

'A Destiny of Dragons' is a more than solid follow-up to 'The Lightening Struck Heart' and for anyone who's a fan of TJ Klune and audiobooks...this one's a must. I know the third book in this series has been released and I am very unashamedly waiting for the audio edition of it because once again it's going to be narrated by Michael Lesley so I have zero doubt that once again it's going to be fan-freakin-tastic!

An audio book of 'A Destiny of Dragons' was graciously provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Kotaku: "How To Cook In Dungeons & Dragons"

Imagine an entire manga series based on this idea, and you get Delicious in Dungeon, one of the series I tried out during my vacation.

 

An adventurer's sister gets eaten by a dragon. He wants to rescue her but has no money to buy food, so he finally has an excuse to try something he's been intrigued about for a long time: cooking and eating the monsters he kills. It's a foodie manga featuring fictional foods. Hopefully I can write up review posts of the first couple volumes soon.

Reading progress update: I've read 64%.
A Destiny of Dragons - By (author) TJ Klune,Michael Lesley

“Kevin will have to stay here. Tiggy and Gary too. We must move with lightness under our feet.”

“Did you just call me fat?” Gary said, sounding outraged. “Bitch, I ain’t fat. I am motherfucking jolly—“
