    Current version is tidier-Author

    Thanks for the feedback, guys, it is truly appreciated. It's prompted me to do a rigorous edit pass for the typos and also sorted a couple of small inconsistencies in the plot. Hopefully the current version is more tidy. This is the power of new technologies in action. Nice. (Since I have to rate my own book to get this comment in I'm putting the current average in, seems the fairest approach).

    Not just another fantasy novel - worth a read!

    I was so pleasantly surprised to dig into this story and find myself unable to put it down. You never know what you will get with a self-published book. The author manages to avoid the tired fantasy cliches and come up with something fresh and entertaining. I enjoyed the subtle sense of humor evident in some of the writing - it made the characters approachable and real to me. Yet there is also is also plenty of action and scary stuff to round out the tale.

    First in a series of three, I believe. I'm devouring the next book "The White Fox" right now.

    Recomended?

    its very hard to find a fantasy book thats either not childish or not realy realy boring like george rr martin. i read alot and i dont know why the average is a three....i havent read a book with the same plotline or anything, and its better then alot of famous authers (as i said before, alot of famous authers being boring).
    One of my favorite books (it was my style) along with Black Sun Rising.

    Good Read

    Overall this is a pretty good book. The plot and storyline is infallible, really one of the best that I've read in a while. Character/story development is pretty good, although it felt a bit rushed. Still good though. The one thing that really got to me was the geography, with a book that has this much travelling in it I try to create a sort of mental map so I can "see" what's going on but I found it kind of hard with this book. It may help if the author could create a map for us as a reference tool. Overall very good, especially for a self published book.

    Hidden Jewel

    I am so glad I came across this book, it really is a treasure. It is a little confusing at first, but stick with it, you'll be glad you did. It is a fantasy book for men and women. Plus, no elves!

    PLOT SPOILER! Don't continue to read this review unless you want

    PLOT SPOILER! Don't continue to read this review unless you want to know what happens at the end. I warned you. I though this book was going to be your traditional fantasy, and I am sorry that I even wasted my time in reading the 1000+ pages that had been written. I found the plot difficult, and some of the characters had similar names, which made it even more confusing for me. Don't get me wrong, I admire any author that tries to add a book to the Fantasy genre. But this sadly is one of the worst books that I have ever read. Now for the spoiler. So if you don't want to know what happens at the end, then stop here. I was hoping that we would eventually get to meet the dragons, as they are one of my favorite Fantasy creatures. But unfortunately, the dragons are not what Azkum thinks they are. At the end, he returned to the Chasm and throws himself off the ledge, and the woman that follows him throughout the novel does the same thing as well. Frankly, I found this to be one of the worst endings that I have ever read in a series, and I do not think that I will be reading the sequel.

    A good book.

    It was a good read. It was a little slow in spots, I think that it could have been a lot shorter. The characters were good, plot solid, but sloooowwwww. The ending was really good, & sooo much was explained & it tightened the story.

    Interesting

    A great plot. Was a little annoyed with the ending, it just stopped. Of course it was so that you go to the next book. I get that. But I did enjoy the plot and building the characters.

    I'll have to read it again

    good read up until the end where it just stopped. You were left not knowing what happened in the final battle. Lots of detail up until the end then it just fell apart. overall it was a bit wordy with long detailed descriptions of everything until the end

    Well, it was good for being a free book

    Summon your dragons was a book that could've been written better. The plot was ok, and the characters were fairly well made themselves, but the ending was somewhat disappointing

    A detailed and interesting story

    With over a thousand pages you get a multifaceted story with lots of interestng twists and turns. You keep reading then realize only a few pages are left and its over. Such an original idea; a king on a crusade, a man returning from hell, dragons and magic just around the corner, new races of people and new kingdoms. It just failed to deliver a closing. Seemed like the author ran out of steam.

    Enjoyable read

    I enjoyed this book, one of the first I downloaded to my Nook. It was difficult for me to turn the thing off and go bed some nights, as I wanted to keep reading! However, the ending felt hurried, and didn't flow as smoothly as the majority of the story. Since I'd gotten rather attached to some of the characters, my overall pleasure in the book lessened a bit. That said, it was a very interesting storyline.

    Truly epic

    The story was truly enjoyable in the storyline. True, there are tidbits here and there that need fixing, but this book is fantastic. I am 12 and this book was one of the best i have ever read.

    Not really worth it

    Some interesting character development, excessive head hopping, poor pacing, and some Deus Ex Machina.

    Nicely Told

    The story is well thought out, and very well told. There are some grammatical errors, and some redundancy errors, but over all it is a good fantasy novel.

    Typos are distracting

    The story was good enough. A nice fantasy with dragons and mystery. However, the text had a typo on almost every page and I found it so distracting I had to stop before the end.
