Dragonborn is a young adult novel written about a God names Fayet falling in love with a mortal woman named Ayshir. The story revolves around the repercussions that they face over the family they build. The fantasy story takes you into various dimensions of worlds which can only be imagined through the graphic nature of its literature, the characters are relatively relatable and thought to provoke. I have read similar style stories like this, and so, it did not stand out for me as a novel idea. However, the story was easy to follow and read. I found it perfect for the first-time fantasy reader and someone who wants to experience a brisk read of a storyline. The concept of the meddling Gods was my favorite part as it brought unwanted twist and turns to create an exciting and captivating scene. The literature was, and I think that is what made the story enjoyable to read. Having that fall apart as well as the normality of the storyline, I believe, would not have turned out as good as it did. I deem the author has potential in great storybook writing and can advance in working on character background and growth to really create that impression. I recommend this book to fantasy and sci-fi readers.

Dragonborn has a way of lifting you to a different adventurous realm, fictitious but apparently real in the narration. It’s difference makes the whole story but stimulating and stirring. Sometimes we need to be made to temporally forget our very mortal existence. Dragonborn grants this desire so satisfactorily by dwelling on the minute details of a tragic human-immortal union. The change in perception and point of view was spot on. what I enjoyed most while reading Dragonborn was the plot and its breathless execution. With clear morals and messages, Dragonborn was definitely a wonderful read.

If you enjoy a strong fantasy setting, and the meddling of gods in the affairs of mortals, then Dragonborn is the book for you. Captivating from start to end I found myself unable to put it down once started. I only wish it were longer! I am a firm believer in not giving out spoilers so if you want to know what happens to Ayshir and those around her, you'll simply have to read it yourself. I'll be keeping an eye out for future books by Whitney Rines, that's for sure.

Dragonborn is a great story. The plot is strong and the story is engaging. However, this did not flow like a book. There is too much time spent on characters that become inconsequential. The story is so full of historic, and sometimes useless, information that this book was just way to small to hold it all. I felt no emotional attachment to any of the characters, regardless of what they were going through. I did not know who the book was about until around halfway through the book. Personally, I would have loved to see this as a full on saga. Devote 1 book to the history, 1 to the beginning, 1 to the love story, and 1 to the tail-end of the book. This was written in 3rd person, so you get everyone’s POV, but I would love to have had more time with each one of the characters. I would love to feel worry, attachment, and excitement about their lives and decisions. As it stands, it was just a story that I read. It had the feel of a child’s fairy tale, no emotion, no attachment, just a….story. I do understand that this was book 1 of a series, so maybe the characters that seemed pointless come into play further on in the storyline.

Dragonborn is an amazing story. It’s a fantastical story. A story that would draw the reader in and enthrall them with its intensity… only the story isn’t written like that at all. I’m a fan of “show, don’t tell” writing, and Rines’ novel is not that at all. Though the story is intriguing, though I wanted to be attached to the characters and to feel with them at every turn, I almost felt as though I was not allowed to, because the writer hadn’t fully realized them. The story itself is not what I expected at all. It took twists and turns that were not what I anticipated, which could’ve been an amazing use of storytelling, but I felt like this book never quite got there. If you’re looking for an easy fantasy read, then yes, Dragonborn may be perfect for you. But if you’re looking for something with more meat on its bones (as I usually am), I’d look somewhere else.
