Interesting twist. Unexpected ending. A few typos probably related to spell-checkers and computer-editing software, which did not distract from the style of writing. 96 pages.

I also wish this was longer. It was excellent for a short story, and it has great potential to be a full-length novel. A few typo's but meh, it was free. Flavio Olcese should be very proud of his work.

Interesting premise, but any race advanced enough to achieve space travel would probably be advanced enough to answer the questions they came to Earth to answer.

This short story maked you think about both the possibity of life other than humans and what would happen if they came here. It was a very good read and I suggest to anyone who likes science fiction.

About: the fifteen dragons and the great Zorgagroz <p> Zorgagroz, mother of all dragons, had created the world. She also created sixteen smaller dragons, the nobles, Aqua, Rubiphithyst, Brighity, Galaxrete, Lightnio, Zkies, Lunar, Solar, Sandesity, Terra, Fauna, Flora, Nightshaze, Acidic, and Galor. The sixteenth was Avara. Each created somewhere around 30 dragons, 15 males and 15 females. Except Avara. Avara was meant to be the one to unite the others, but she had no simbol. Avara became evil and the others trapped her in a tiny dragon statue with sixteen peices, and then they each had to create two dragons to rule each group. The statue was broken and the nobles faded away, and the statue was turned into a myth. A prophecy says that Avara is still alive to this day, and that a new sixteen nobles will rise, stop the war, and bring peace. They will find each peice within there own kingdom. Whatever that means.

I have a new favorite author. What I have read so far, I love. Wish he had more. I love the twists in the story and wish it were longer. There were couple typos or misspellings, nothing that distracted from reading it. From the start the story was engaging and entertaining. I read fast so it was a 30 minute read for me. Well worth the time!

Had intrigue and suspense. It is a real page turner, and a fantastic journey on humanity. Noticed 2 sppellling mistakes but I found those in Stephen King paperbacks before, no no strikes against author for that. Get this and read it you will enjoy it.
