Ive only just started reading this book and Im compelled to write a pre-read review. First, why have dragons if they are simply going to have all human characteristics and mannerisms? Second, I just hit a description of the dragon kings "vast" kingdom. 100 miles!? Seriously? In dragon fly time thats like a half an hour to get to?
Ill return to reading with hopes it will improve...

    Good Entertainment

    Bitterwood started very slowly. I almost put the book down. This is the second time I started it and this time I decided to read a couple more chapters before making a decision. I'm glad I did. There is not a lot of subtlety in Maxey's attempts to make his points, but he does a good job with it. The world he paints is fantastic and original. You feel bits and pieces of other fantasy novels and movies all along, but he wraps them in a very comfortable way. Once the book gets going, it goes quickly. If you are looking for a literary masterpiece, don't read this. If you are looking for great entertainment and reminders of what things really matter, Maxey's your man.

    This series seems to be very good. I'm almost done with this book & have all the others to go. Very good reading. Mixing God stuff with dragons is kind of interesting.
