More About This Book

Overview

Vanx, Trevin, and Darbon, along with Prince Russet and the crew of the Sea
Hawk, sail to Vanx's homeland to find an old friend who just might know the wyrm lore needed to make their quest to Dragon Isle seem survivable.

Meanwhile Coll and Duke Martin have set their shadowy schemes in motion in
Dyntalla where Quazar is keeping the princess from death with all he has.

What will King Oakarm do about Duke Martin's treachery when he arrives? Will
Matty the one-handed whore get her wish? Can two High Wizards of the Royal Order hold off the ogres, and the even darker thing that is seeking the Bloodstone?
And what will happen on Dragon Isle, where our hero and his friends have become little more than prey under the revealing light of Aur's Moon.

    This book is a suspense filled fantasy! Definite page turner!

    This book is a suspense filled fantasy! Definite page turner! You must read the first, keep that in mind. This will definitely attract fantasy readers and keep them reading! Who doesn't want to read about a half human who's on a journey to save a girl?
    The sexual content really has me saying that parents should read it before letting their children read it so they know what's in it first before agreeing to let them (depending on the age of the child, of course).

    Flaming Dragons are just the start of an all out adventure ride

    Flaming Dragons are just the start of an all out adventure ride that took me away and filed my imagination with suspense as well as non stop action that left me wanting more. 
    The Legend of Vanx Malic is the second book from "Through the Wildwood" and is an amazing follow up to the first. This is definitely a multi-dimensional world you will not want to miss. 
    The Fantasy world M. R. Mathias has created will take you away from the very get go and will not stop until the very end, which can not be said about many fantasy books that take a few chapters to develop. The hero of the story sets the stage once again and inspires readers to have the necessary courage to persevere through all of life’s challenges. There is a hero inside all of us that needs to be discovered. Once you do there will be no stopping as what can be achieved. Remember the only thing to fear is fear itself. 
    Definitely a must read for all us Fantasy Buffs who are looking to get away into an enchanted world of non-stop adventure and suspense. 
    The story progresses well and is extremely well written, personally I think it is better then the first. Total read time for me was one day, not because of the stories length, but rather because I could not put it down.
    Definitely a solid and captivating story for the ages. The only question left is when will it be turned into the next epic movie? 
    5 Stars!

    ¿Dragon Isle¿ is the second in the fantasy adventure ¿The Legend

    “Dragon Isle” is the second in the fantasy adventure “The Legend of Vanx Malic” series, and this one focuses just as much on secondary characters as it does on Vanx himself, which keeps the action moving along.
     
    Princess Gallareal is still near death, and the antidote can only be found on a very dangerous expedition to Dragon Isle, where fierce dragons battle and are ready to roast anyone or anything in their path. The story switches between following Gallareal’s lover, Trevin, as he seeks her cure on the island; Quazar defending the city of Dyntalla from a fearsome plague of ogres; Vanx’s travels on his own mission; and various other characters within Dyntalla, such as the imprisoned Duke Martin and the feisty prostitute Matty.
     
    I thought this book was a bit more fast-paced than the first—because you’re already familiar with the characters (assuming you have read the first book), the author doesn’t have to spend as much time establishing characters and building the world. Instead, he can focus on action and developing his characters a bit more (for instance, you find out more about Vanx’s father, the captain of the Foamflower). It’s a good follow-up to “Into the Wildwoods” and fans of fantasy adventure with the classic tropes—dragons, kings, princesses, and heroes—should find it a fast and enjoyable read. Not recommended to younger readers, as there is sexual content.

    Dragon Isle (The Legend of Vanx Malic) by M.R. Mathias is a two

    Dragon Isle (The Legend of Vanx Malic) by M.R. Mathias is a two hundred and fifty-two page fantasy book written in third person, past tense. It has a world map at the beginning, twenty-eight chapters, no titles just numbers and a preview for book three (the first three chapters). I thought the cover pegged the story and was intriguing. I don’t remember any spelling errors off hand. The eBook formatting was as it should be and I liked the font used for the chapter titles and on the cover.



    Mathias can write a good epic world description. Again, I was transported to another world for an afternoon. The dialogue fits perfect for this kind of story and works well with the large cast of diverse characters. If you want to escape to the high seas and beyond for an adventure, dabble in some magic, chase ancient myths then this is the right book. As I said for book 1, while the story line was not the best I have ever read, it was still really good. It is an inexpensive read that entertained me for the afternoon. What more can you ask for?
