Dragonslayer(Dragonslayer #1) by Duncan M. Hamilton
Dragonslayer - Duncan M. Hamilton

 

 

In his magnificent, heroic, adventure fantasy, Dragonslayer, Duncan M. Hamilton debuts the first book in a fast-moving trilogy: a dangerous tale of lost magics, unlikely heroes, and reawakened dragons.

Once a member of the King's personal guard, Guillot dal Villevaurais spends most days drinking and mourning his wife and child. He's astonished--and wary--when the Prince Bishop orders him to find and destroy a dragon. He and the Prince Bishop have never exactly been friends and Gill left the capitol in disgrace five years ago. So why him? And, more importantly, how is there a dragon to fight when the beasts were hunted to extinction centuries ago by the ancient Chevaliers of the Silver Circle?

On the way to the capitol city, Gill rescues Solène, a young barmaid, who is about to be burned as a witch. He believes her innocent...but she soon proves that she has plenty of raw, untrained power, a problem in this land, where magic is forbidden. Yet the Prince Bishop believes magic will be the key to both destroying the dragon and replacingthe young, untried King he pretends to serve with a more pliable figurehead.

Between Gill's rusty swordsmanship and Solène's unstable magic, what could go wrong?

 

 

 

*I received a free copy from the publisher and chose to leave a voluntary review. Thank you!*

 

 

I read a sample of the book, on bookish first and I really enjoyed it. I won the book in their raffle and was excited. Once I got deeper into the book I liked it but not as much as I thought I would,

For a while I felt like something is missing, the world building , there is none really. we are just thrown in and we are there but that is just about it and sometimes even half way through I just felt lost.

Another thing that bothered me a bit was switching the POV randomly, just anywhere in a chapter without a warning the next paragraph was a different POV. This could, have been because it was a review copy but for this copy is was a bit confusing.

Other than that I enjoyed this book, I enjoyed the story, (for the most part.)

What I really enjoyed was that we get a voice of the dragon, and I really enjoyed that and we don't too often get that.

I liked that the book also deals with some real life issues, like alcoholism.

Overall, it was okay book and the while the writing was good it could have been better with the world building but other than that I liked it.

I give it 3 ★

4 Star Curse
Curse of the Dragon - Stephanie Rowe,S.A. Bayne

 

She’s spent the last two centuries trapped indoors and Theresa Nichols is so over being stuck in dragon form, especially since she’s about to miss out on her one chance for love. So makes she a deal with Satan and she’s finally human, only everything starts to fall apart…the man she’s falling for is an ex-dragon slayer, her ex-lover from a couple centuries ago is stalking her and there’s a team of active dragon slayers hunting her down. Not only is there no chance for a dragon and a dragon slayer to make a relationship work but there’s no way she can protect the Goblet of Eternal Youth.

 

The second book in the ‘Immortally Cursed’ series is as bright, funny and vividly passionate as the first but it also puts new meaning to the song “Crazy Thing Called Love!” It’s crazy, its zany, its super feisty and so energetic that keeps readers holding on the edge of their seat from beginning to end. The chemistry between Theresa and Zeke is electrical which keeps the pages singing with sparks and passion but this relationship is hits the rocks from the very first ‘in the flesh’ meeting and only gets more feisty and explosive from there.

 

The plot is fast paced and full of non-stop action, excitement and laughs that keeps readers in stitches even while they bite their nails in suspense of just what will happen next. A whole host of wonderfully different, uniquely charming characters ensures that the readers can really get involved in the story and with stunning twists, fun and quirky elements, vivid imagery, this story is a diabolical delight.

The Dragonslayer's Sword: The Dragonslayer Series: Book One of Four
The Dragonslayer's Sword: The Dragonslay... The Dragonslayer's Sword: The Dragonslayer Series: Book One of Four - Resa Nelson,Eric Wilder I really loved this book... the characters are fleshed out wonderfully, Astrid is especially memorable. DiStephan was without a doubt my favorite character, from the first moment he appeared on the page he was so vibrant and full of life! I loved how the author worked the dragons into the plot as well as the distinction used between them and the lizards. The one very tiny complaint that I have is that once glaringly and one other time minimally, the author made a jarring jump from one chapter to the next which threw me for a loop till I figured out what had happened. Over all this was a incredibly enjoyable read and I plan to continue on to book 2 the Iron Maiden in the series.

Dragonslayer Stories: Two Short Stories
Dragonslayer Stories: Two Short Stories - Resa Nelson These two short stories are the first pieces I have read written by this author, and if the full series is even half as good as this, then I am gonna devour it! Each of these stories was vibrant and full of life and detail, they both painted beautiful images in my head and left me wanting more! Astrid is intriguing and complex. And the idea that a person can physically change their appearance or have it changed by someone else, depending on the strength of one's belief is a fascinating one. I am looking forward to reading much much more of this series!!!

Magic world with teenager managing a home improvement service by magic
The Last Dragonslayer - Jasper Fforde

 

 

 

This book fits Magic Realism, Chilling Children and probably Witches. 

 

Reading this one now. More like a magical world where wizards would take care of moles problem with charms. 

 

Sound like fun. 

 

Oh my goodness. This story is great. 

 

Jennifer Strange is 15 and going on 16. She manages a magic service agency that do delivery by flying carpet and finding missing items by magic.

 

She is trying to find out about a prophecy that Big Magic with capital letter M is happening because the last dragon is going to be killed.

 

The story moves smoothly and then a lot of real life issues happened in this fantasy land. 

 

Like it a lot. Looking forward to the next one.
