Meet the Author

Samantha Warren is an indie fantasy and science fiction author who spends her days immersed in dragons, space ships, and vampires. Her best selling books are Blood of the Dragon (Book #1), a full-length epic fantasy novel, and her urban fantasy novella series, Jane. She is currently writing book 5 of the Jane series and the sequel to Blood of the Dragon is due out by Thanksgiving.In the name of research, she enlisted the help of her pet dragon Anethesis and together they built a Noah’s Ark-like space ship. Three trips through a hole in the time-space continuum allowed the pair to explore the universe decades into the past and eons into the future. They discovered how life would be without Earth and were forced to run from alien law enforcement when their ship was deemed unspaceworthy. In the long run, the constant demands of space travel and repairs cut into Samantha’s sock fetish fund, so she was forced to sell her ark for half-price to a slimy creature that made Jabba the Hutt look like Brad Pitt.After her years of traveling, she returned to her roots. When she isn’t writing or reading, she is milking cows or trying to feed them Pop-Tarts and FiberOne bars (they like neither). She also spends a lot of time in her weed patch (aka: garden), drinking lattes at the Village Cafe, or watching any show featuring Gordon Ramsay. Anethesis remains by her side, sleeping away the day and hunting evil cat-eating coyotes by night.

    Vampire and Dragon Sieries

    After reading her well written vampire assassin series.. I was intrigued in how she would do with dragons .. although I will always be partial to Anne McAffrey's Dragon Riders of Pern series and my favorite book her White Dragon .. I felt Ms Warren is definitely coming into her own genre very well despite missed editing errors in novella. I have enjoyed becoming aquainted with her characters and how believable she writes the dialogues. I cried too with the battles and losses.. very heart- felt grief in her writings . I look forward to reading more.

    Not so great

    50 pages into the 60 page story, I was wondering when I was actually going to get a description of the characters. Suffice to say, it never happened beyond a mention of what color the different dragons were. Dragons on the opposing side are implied to be dumb creatures, while the "good guy" dragons have all sorts of mystical abilities.
    Emotion felt a bit stilted and put-on in places, I never made any connection with anything that was going on.

    As for the book file itself, while I didn't spot any glaring spelling errors, there is some broken HTML and poor formatting that interferes with the enjoyment of the read.

    Nightmare

    She stalked through the forest, her tail lashing. Her blue gaze icy cold.

    She shook her head, shaking her fur of dust, and dropped the dead raven. She watched Broken.

    Confusing

    I have no idea what body shape these dragons have, but they do surprisingly human things. They seem more like people with scales, except for during battle. NOT a good read, so frustrated with this.

    Very good - a well written quick read

    This book is only the prequel to a series but it is very good. It's well written and just because it is short doesn't mean it's sloppy. Left me wanting to read the next book.
