The crew of the Karamojo seeks the star dragon for different reasons. But, for Fisher, it is an all-consuming obsession. He must live the dragon, breathe the dragon, know the dragon. And, as the crew members begin to pair off, Fisher must not let his feelings for the captain Fang interfere with his true quest of capturing a dragon. But, the dragons prove to be smart and catching one seems impossible. If Fisher and the crew are to succeed, they must set aside their feelings for one another and work as an unselfish team. If they can do this, they may just accomplish their mission. Mike Brotherton expertly weaves a tale of sex and science. A rookie science fiction reader may be overwhelmed by the astronomy jargon, but the story pulls through, and anyone can appreciate the plot. Brotherton is to be commended for his imagination. His attention to detail paints a picture of the future that is not only believable, but also realistic. Brotherton should continue to churn out more novels for the science fiction aficionado. - Reviewed by Leigh O'Donovan - Authors on the Rise Book Reviews

I originally read this book when it first came out in hardback. And normally after I read a book once I don't like to read it again because I remember it all. But with this book as soon as I was done I read it again. And when it was available for the nook I jumped at the opertunity to get it. I would recommend this to anyone who like space adventures, dragons, or gene manipulation!!!!!!!!!!!!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Mike Brotheron's "Star Dragon" is heavy on tech/science/astronomy, and I admit I sometimes had trouble following all of the information that was being thrown at me. But given Brotherton's training in astronomy and his passion for his field, I had no doubt that his material was dead on. It's been years since I last read Hemingway's "The Old Man and the Sea," and I haven't (yet) read "Moby Dick." Brotherton's "Star Dragon" echoes both of these powerful tales in the relentless pursuit of prey, and the ethical questions and personal doubts that arise along the way. I've already passed this book along to another avid sci-fi fan, and I do recommend this title to others.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
