When J.C. Harker set out to write a short tale from the Uutta Toivoa series, she took a unique and not altogether empathetic angle. Set in the Third Era, Year 976, this tale follows the pillaging dwarves as they set out to rid the world of the existence of hybrid dragons, called the Draphony. Much of the reader's soul will cry out at such merciless marauding, which is exactly how Harker reels in her audience. She firmly crafts the story to arouse the reader's emotions and incite interest in the rest of the series. While A Dragon Scorned is a good read, it feels somewhat incomplete without the framework of who the characters are and why they act the way they do. Such questions can only be answered by the remainder of the series as Harker teases out the characters' existences and purposes in life, giving them meaning and fleshing them out before our very eyes. Complete with a plot twist and blatant catharsis, A Dragon Scorned is the ideal choice for the casual passerby.
