Overview

A thousand years before the Winter War, Elgo, prince of the Vanadurin, killed the Dragon Sleeth and returned home with the fabulous wealth from the dead beast’s lair. But there was more in the bounty than gems and gold, for the treasure was cursed, and in time it brought death to noble and peasant, war between Man and Dwarf, strife and destruction beyond reckoning.



Now, generations later, as the conflict continues, the great Dragon Black Kalgalath, in league with the Wizard Andrak, appears to avenge Sleeth’s death and claim the Dragon-cursed hoard. Against this unholy alliance, two sworn enemies set forth to find a legendary long-lost weapon: a warhammer of incalculable power that may be the only hope of victory. But neither the Warrior Maiden Elyn nor the Dwarf Thork is prepared for the dangers awaiting them on this quest....

    Not just a clone

    I'm impressed. I read of this author as a 'Tolclone', i.e. an ersatz Tolkien, and it was not flattery. I will admit he goes over and above in copying notions and forms from Tolkien. But this story was original, and fit in a broad history of its own. Not merely a copy of Middle Earth, Mithgar is a world that borrows liberally from Tolkien as well as conventianal history and humanity. He has his own 'storyteller' way of narrative, and his peoples include human ethnic types without being heavy handed and obvious. Great story. I look forward to reading his Iron Tower trilogy!

    I Also Recommend:

    The best book I have ever read, ever!

    Seriously, there is no other book I have ever read that remotely compares to Dragondoom. The plot was spectacular! The plot weaves past and present together in a unique flow that reveals all the mysteries of the story at precisely the right time. It combines a classic, dragonslaying tale with a wild twist of romance, greed and war. I have made it my life long tradition to read this book once a year. A perfect escape during those long winter nights. I can see this novel becoming a future movie. I also recommend the Dragonlance Chronicles for anyone who wishes to plunge into that magical, medieval, dragon riddled adventure.

    A great fantasy, love story

    I couldn't put the book down. It captured me in the first paragraph. Dragondoom is definetely one of the best and saddest books i've read.

    The Best

    If you love fantasy, if you like romance, if you love adventure, if you wish to escape into a world of stunning realism, and detail then Dragonsdoom is for you, and if you don't you should read it anyway because it will be good for you.

    Don't waste your money.

    I had high hopes for this book. It's actually quite good until about 60% of the way in. Then the author decided to turn it into nothing more than a cheep setup vessel for his sequel novel.

    VERY disappointing!
