Overview

In ancient times a band of warriors escorted a young prince homeward. Only one warrior remained true. He watched helplessly as the others slew their young charge. Death seemed to claim him as well. But he awoke one thousand years later, brought back by the prophets of God to serve them once again as an invisible guardian. One of the prophets, an albino dragon, hatched human daughters out of eggs by giving them the life in his blood. The daughters sought out the traitor to bring him to repentance. Out of remorse for his sins, the traitor slew himself on a sword. Upon the daughters' return their dragon father sent them to live in a far off forest. The youngest daughter fell in love and wed. But upon giving birth to a beautiful baby girl she gave up the life in her blood and died; making the ultimate sacrifice to bring a child of promise into the world.

The writing of this novel is incredible! Great plot with romance, action, mystery and thrills. Leaves you begging for more at the end. I can't wait for the second one!

This is the best fantasy novel I have ever read, it has a great mix of action, suspense, mystery, romance and redemtion, you name it, it's got it. More than worth buying, I can't wait to read the second one!

Anything with a dragon on the cover is sure to catch my attention, and Swords of the Six was no exception. With dragons, witches, mermaids, battles for good and evil, and half dragon children, the draw of this book was too great for me to resist. The sword of the six starts in the past where the White Dragon had a group of sex men whom he trusted above all others. Unfortunately, five of them had their hearts darkened and turned, leaving only one faithful to the White Dragon. Soon, none were left who were true to the side of good, for the evil has won that battle. The White Dragon was not to be stopped. His six may have been flawed, but the new plan will not fail. he has 5 eggs that are getting ready to hatch, and one of these eggs holds a very special...person. Yes, a person, or at least...a part-person. And that isn't the only unusual thing about this being. Usually, you would expect this type of extraordinary person to be the savior of all man/dragon kind, but she (AHEM...YES another big surprise) is not the only key to this plan. This book started off exciting, action-packed, heavy, and a tad bit confusing. Parts of this book seem to have been written differently than other parts. Some of it felt like a typical action/adventure story, and other times, it felt like it was written in a very heavy hand. It did take me a bit to really get into the flow of this book, but once I did, it was fairly easy to stay in the story. There are quite a few characters in the books that you need to keep track of. There are 5 sisters, then a slew of other characters. It may seem a bit daunting, trying to keep up with them all, but if you are paying attention, you shouldn't have any problems keeping them all straight. Some of the characters I am hoping to see more of in the second book because I felt like I didn't get to learn about them as much as I would have liked. You get to see some of the characters really grow, change, and develop in the story, and you want to stay with them to see what happens to them. This is a great book for anyone looking for some adventure without all of the stuff that many authors think is necessary to include these days. The sex, language and random killing is not in this book. The author stressed the value of life and preserving it whenever possible, even if that life belonged to someone who had just tried to take yours. It is a different take than what most people are used to, but it was a nice view.

My 9 year old son and I both loved it! Daddy will be reading it next. We bought it for nook, but will be buying the whole series in hard back, so it will last all of  our children.

Among other things Scott Appleton knows how to make the reader just want. I currently have all of Scott Appleton's books in hard copies, and autographed by himself. In the end Appleton knows how to crush your heart, and make you grieve along side Ilfedo with Dantress's death.
