Overview

You swing a staff until you're ready to swing a sword. Then you go on all kinds of adventures - fighting monsters, casting spells and saving damsels in distress. At least that's how it's supposed to work, but I didn't believe a word of it.

BOOK ONE OF THE EPIC FANTASY SERIES RETURN OF THE DRAGONS

Locked in his room in the castle, young Anders yearns for adventure. Until the day he opens a magic portal and a girl bursts into his locked room with a chemical warlock hot on her trail.

And adventure finds him.

An adventure full of danger, full of blood, fire, demons and evil. To face it, he'll need the sword given him by his blademaster, need the ancient words his grandfather gave him on his deathbed. Need the song that runs in his own blood, in his veins.

A sword will be reforged, magic words discovered, battles fought, friends made and lost, secrets revealed. And blood will be spilled.

But will blade, word and blood be enough?

    Excellent

    Enjoyed this will probably read the second book, but then I'll have to wait for the third, so maybe not. Getting tired of everything being a trilogy. What's wrong with just writing one book, start to finish, that covers the whole story? Oh yeah, I forgot, greed

    395 nook pages. Seems this book takes place in like the 15th century, on an alternate earth. This young man turns 16 in a locked room doing homework. Thats when his magical powers thrust him in an adventure of a lifetime. He finds out, being a hero is in his blood and much, much more.
    Pretty well written, and easy to follow and be drawn into. Definintly looking forward to reading the continuing adventures of Anders

    Wait till the series is finished before you start reading

    The book is enjoyable, and very easy to read.

    It is however, very much incomplete, as a book. It's supposed to be Book 1 in a trilogy. This is not a trilogy, this is just a long book broken into 3 parts.

    Here is the dictionary definition of a Trilogy:

    "a series or group of three plays, novels, operas, etc., that, although individually complete, are closely related in theme, sequence, or the like. "

    This book just ends, without any type of story conclusion what so ever. The 3rd book, as far as I can find doesn't even have an estimated release date.

    I personally don't care for this type of publishing, where you need to wait for the next chapters finally to be released.

    At least when serial writing was the norm in magazines, back in the day, the next chapter was forthcoming in the next regularly scheduled issue. Not so in this case. The book is really just the opening chapters in a larger story, with apparently an undetermined wait until the final chapters are released.

    SF for the Potter lover

    If you liked Harry Potter, or any of the epic search for adulthood in a science fiction format, you will certainly like this one. Full of drama, action, adolescent angst, it keeps moving and holds your interest well. This should be a very interesting series and I look forward to the rest of the books.

    I see this as a teen read. It took a little getting into it before I really got interested. There is so much repeated lines that it's distracting.  I didn't like the way the book ended. There were too many questions unanswered. It didn't hold my interest enough to want to read the next in the series, but I would read it just to get the answers.

    Brilliant fantasy novel. Highly reccomended.

    Highly unexpected at times. I wish I could give a spoiler, but i'd never hear the end of it. It is taking so much to not spoil the entire story. This is among the best stories i have ever read. (I have read hundreds of books)

    !!!!!!!

    New author good storyteller. I never tire of light against dark.magic ,good over evil. I agree I would like a long story and no so many trilogies,series or chronicles. That said it is nice only few bucks on a book instead of 10-20$ . I love the pull from book to book.. you judge
