Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
As a youth, Hal Kailas harbored one goal: to become a dragonrider. When war breaks out among the neighboring kingdoms of Sagene, Roche, and Deraine, Hal gets his wish as he is "recruited" to fly in the dragon fleet of Deraine. As Hal's expertise grows, his heroic actions soon earn him the title of "Dragonmaster," which brings greater challenges and responsibilities. The author of The Seer King and the "Sten" series begins a new fantasy series that features fast-paced action and aerial battles as well as a smattering of romance and intrigue. Fans of military fantasy and dragon lore should enjoy this fantasy adventure. For large collections. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

    Good Book

    This is pretty good series overall. Sort of off the beaten path. His Last Legion novels were above and beyond, but this is not bad. He certainly had a wonderful imagination.

    Unexpected

    Its not about the dragons, its about the war and the tactics used in that war. There is no individuality in the dragons but its enjoyable nonetheless as long as you accept the character study of it. The main character has flaws like a normal person, love, confusion, anger, hope. Some of the other characters are lacking in deeper substance but I have not delved into the next book in the series. Hopefully I learn more of who was introduced in book one, and enjoy the next book at least as much as this one.

    I picked this book up one day from Bearnes and Nobles and I loved it. The story just drags you in! There is no way that you could start reading this book and not be interested! It is about a poor boy named Hal that lives in an old mining town. He loves dragons, wants to be a dragonmaster, but he could never ride one because he can't catch one and sure as hell couldn't buy one. So he runs away. After a few years on his own, war breaks out and he gets drafted into the Army. Later on he finally gets a chance to ride Dragons! It is a great story that will just yank you in! You wont be dissapointed!

    A Young Man Determined to Live His Dream...

    Hal Kailas was born a nobody in a small mining village that was nowhere. He was run out of his home and made an outcast, but as he travelled he began to dream. On the wings of a dragon he could soar above the world and be free, but when he manages to begin realizing his dream a most inconvenient war breaks out and Hal is one of the first to be drafted. After distinguishing himself on the field of battle he seizes the chance to make his dream come true when a flier is sent out proclaiming the recruiting and training of dragon fliers for the war. Struggling through the trials of training, jealosy, romance, and his past Hal Kailas becomes what he had always desired to be: a Dragonmaster! An excellent book with realistic struggles and ambitions along with vivid characters and powerful emotions.
