When dragons rise from the earth, firefighters are humanity’s last line of defence, in this wild near-future fantasy.
Firefighter Cole Brannigan is on the verge of retirement after 30 years on the job, and a decade fighting dragons. But during his final fire call, he discovers he’s immune to dragon smoke. It’s such a rare power that he’s immediately conscripted into the elite dragon-fighting force known as the Smoke Eaters. Retirement cancelled, Brannigan is re-assigned as a lowly rookie, chafing under his superiors. So when he discovers a plot to take over the city’s government, he takes matters into his own hands. With hundreds of innocent civilians in the crosshairs, it’s up to Brannigan and his fellow Smoke Eaters to repel the dragon menace.

TITLE: Smoke Eaters AUTHOR: Sean Grigsby GENRE: Near Future Fantasy PAGES: 267 Welcome to Parthenon City, Ohio. Dragons are real, and they are leaving a wake of devastation in their wake all throughout the city. If their fire does not get you, the smoke will. Enter the Smoke Eaters, a group of individuals that are immune to dragon smoke, and they have some nifty toys to take down the dragon menace. From foam to laser guns to laser swords, they get the job done…most of the time. But there is something more menacing than dragons in Parthenon City, the mayor of the city, who is replacing firefighters and policemen with robots. Oh yeah, and I almost forgot about the wraiths, ghosts of victims of the dragons who are a vicious as dragons and guard the dragon’s eggs. Two words kept running through my mind as I read this: 1) Inventive. If I had read anything like this before, it did not come to mind. Mr. Grigsby delivered a well thought out near future world populated with humans, ghosts, robots and dragons. He out these elements into a blender and took me for the tornado like ride!; and 2) Fun. This book is fun. Wait, let me rephrase that, this book is FUN! If I had a problem with this book it is the simple fact that I did not want to put it down or for it to end! I give this 5 bookmarks out of 5 and two lost nights sleep! Oh, and my fourth bookgasm of the year!
A real adventure of a read not what you would expect but very enjoyable
