This was a great little read, the perfect beginning to a new series. Rain and her partner, Sutter, were Trackers. They tracked down old outposts and hunted for supplies. They came across the old site where Lieutenant Micah Caine fought one of the first battles with dragons 25 years ago, and lost his life taking down one of the beasties. They discover some old munitions along with some other relics of the past. There is a base of Marines that fight the dragons, but they are not like the old Marines. These guys go around taking whatever they want from the different outposts, sometimes leaving them without enough supplies to survive. There are strange rumors about what goes on at the Marine base. The Marines pay a visit to the Outpost where Rain and Sutter are fighting dragons and end up taking Sutter with them. Rain will end up having to travel to the Marine base and try to find out what is going on there and get her friend Sutter back. There were a few things that made me go grrrrrr in the book. (No, not the old air vent entry into a sealed secret military base!) But other in a few places it was a really good book and I look forward to the next in the series. Excellent ending!

As with everything else written by this author, I can't say enough good things about this book. I loved the characters and the plot and can't wait for the next in the series. The only thing I wasn't 100% satisfied with about the book was the length. I was totally wrapped up in the story and not paying attention to page numbers and was totally surprised when I came to the end and there wasn't anymore. Oh well, just leaves me eagerly awaiting the next one =).

Angel's Guilty Pleasures Review ~ 4 Dragon Warrior Stars ~ Dragon Warrior is book one in the Dragon Wars series by Shea MacLeod. I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed this post-apocalyptic adventure. The author thinks outside the box and brings together several unique elements.     I picked this one up; because of the title and the free status. I love dragon's and was expecting something along the lines of a dragon shifter in hiding or like the movie Dragonheart, but what I got was completely different in that the dragon's are true fire breathing dragon's. I enjoyed the world building, plot, Rain and Micah together and separately. I was surprised by many events and plot twists and turns. The character and world jump off the pages. The author does a fabulous job getting the reader invested into the characters created and pulling you into this interesting world where dragon's are bad, humans fight for their lives not from just the dragon's, but from another source that once served to protect, and so much more. The ending is wonderfully done. Even though we are left with a little cliffhanger and some questions, they just add to the story making me want to pick up the next book to see what happens next, what is reveled, and how will these people change the status quo. The only thing I felt needed to happen is that things needed to slow down a little more. Without giving things away, some major events happen before the beginning of the book including a potential villain. The way this is shown to us left me hungry for more.  Dragon Warrior is a post-apocalyptic America with some gripping unique twists.

This book is a lot of fun, what with the post-apocalyptic setting, dragons and marines (or rather the sorry remnants of what had been the Corps, they aren't nice guys), plus a bit of mystery and romance. The lead character Rain Mauri is tough, smart, and practical. Competent without being any kind of unreasonable super-heroine, which goes a long way to giving "reality" to her world. I am confident a lot of reviewers will extol the virtues of MacLeod's clean writing and adept characterization, so I will just focus on one thing that for me made the book particularly enjoyable: It's sense of scale. With a lot of "fantastic" books, maybe even a majority, it seems that the fate of the whole world has to be constantly in the balance, or else the stakes don't seem high enough. That is not the case here. In this first volume of what promises to be a series, things are as simple as protecting the people of Point A from the people of Point B, and the narrative is still plenty engaging. There is room left for the stakes to get bigger and bigger as the series progresses, but that upping of the ante will be "earned," not a constant from the beginning. Honestly, I found it really refreshing, and it also brought a "reality" to a fictional world. At about 45K words, Dragon Warrior is right on the edge of novella/novel length, and it is a fast and fun read.

3-3.5stars Such mixed feelings I didn’t dislike this book and had no expectations going in. It fell down for me in a couple of places – first & foremost. Zombies – too close to horror for me; also I found the writing style more tolerable than enjoyable. There were parts of the book I actually liked quite a bit. The leads, the overall mystery/conspiracy vibe that went with the Marines. Although the first couple of chapters moved slowly once they got moving the story flowed better and the writing seemed to be different – but In a good way. I liked the way the story ended especially for what the author has in mind but I won’t continue this series. The reason is 100% about the zombies!
