If you are an epic fantasy adventure lover, Dragon's Breath is a must read book. Not only is the style pleasantly simple yet delightfully eloquent, it is quite unique in its' genre. This is definitely an adult book, with exceptionally well-developed characters that enjoy intriguing, complex, and intimate relationships, which I found very refreshing and exciting. The story evolves around the effects of the evildoings of a very malignant dragon in a world where humans, elves, and dwarves exist in a parallel universe. As foretold by "the Prophecy", the Elves will have to do everything in their magical powers to prevent the total destruction and annihilation of the world. To that end they will have no choice but to reunite with the humans and dwarves, and to make things worse, their races have not coexisted peacefully for eons. The writer manages with very few words, particularly through lively dialogues, to create amazingly vivid images in our heads of these worlds and their inhabitants, yet always leaving plenty of space for our own imagination. It has all the richness, speed and humor it needs to make it a very enjoyable book. This is a fabulous debut of a writer I look forward to reading a lot more from in the future. Personally, I can barely wait for the sequel!

While the title seemed rather pedestrian, and possibly nothing more than a potent lure for trusting adventure seekers like myself, I took a risk and decided to expand my fantasy appreciation scope by picking up a copy of what I hoped would be a book for grown ups based on these overly generous reviews. Instead of an erotic adventure, I found a disappointing mixture of C grade Saturday morning cartoons and a juvenile preocupation for coarse descriptions of naked elves. The editing is so poor and the story line so flaccid, had it been a movie I'd have walked out. Requests for a sequel?? Did you read the first one??

    A Magnificent Surprise

    Dragon's Breath was loaned to me by a family member of Rick Lee. I was hesitant at first to read it because I thought that the opinion of the book presented to me was overly biased because of the close relationship to the author. Although. I started reading it and found it to be a brilliant book that was so filled with fantasy and intrigue that all my daily stresses seemed to vanish.
    I wish there was more out there written by this author. I need it for my daily escape fix!
