    Dragons Away is a story of a half ogre an illusionist monarchs dragons and many many oppressed dwarves I got an ebook version free for a review and it was a very hilarious read There is a lot of sarcasm and good natured humor throughout so if you are someone who likes a laugh or maybe even needs one I would suggest this bookThe humor was something I expected but I was pleasantly surprised at the depth of the

    A fantasy which is suitable for adults YA older children and if the three swearwords are left out even for younger children Calling someone the end of a knob twice and illegitimate are fairly easygoing so nothing that will offend easily It has a subtle layer of wit sprinkled on top of the story sort of like watching Shrek and picking up on

It seemed like such a good idea at the time a wager with the devious dangerous and probably uite deranged King Davkosh of the Southern RealmsHalf the kingdom staked in a race between mystery contendersTen leagues point to point as the er crow flies Drewdop the Illusionist is uick to point out the flaws in this plan an. From Lilac Wolf and StuffLook at that cover Who can pass by such a magnificent looking dragon without being just a little curious I ve read some bad fantasy recently though so I was leery Boy was I surprised this book is awesomeBoth the writing and the story progression are smooth The story is fairly fast paced I can t tell how many pages it isI haven t figured out how to do that on the Kindle yet It s not a short novel but reads easily in a few days It is occasionally silly and sometimes deadly seriousI loved the name DrewdopI still call him Dew Drop in my head He s a magician set up to look like a cliche wizard but the only magic he can do are illusions It comes in handy but there are than a few occasions where he is frustrated by his lack of magic He is however smartat least intelligent than the king King Credos while being a bit naive is a nice person and treats his subjects well His kingdom is doing well and is full of happy peopleKing Davkosh and his wife Gunara are really not any intelligent than King Credos but meaner than a crabby rattlesnake They regularly feed people to their alligators especially if they need an influx of cash ueen Gunara also thinks she is invulnerableUrkhart the half ogre was my favorite character He was really a sweetheart but people shunned him because he looked mostly like the ogre half His ogre half did come to the front when he was in the heat of battle thoughThis is honestly the best piece of fantasy fiction I ve picked up in a long time And KD Berry is a penname for a husband and wife team from New Zealand Oh and the best bit of news looks like there could be another one for these characters At least the ending gave a strong hint Yeah

Review Dragons Away

Dragons Away

D is tasked with a secret spy mission to find out just what kind of invincible champion Davkosh has training at home Travelling in magical disguise causes unforeseen complications for Drewdop while his half ogre bodyguard in the guise of a beautiful woman certainly turns a few heads But Drewdop soon discovers that the.

Great race is the least of their worriesDavkosh's glamorous fiery and ruthless ueen Gunora is massing an army ready for attack whatever the outcome Meanwhile deep in the dark forest one of Davkosh's elite royal messengers is facing his ownperilous destiny how to become the world's first and only surviving dragon ride. Oh this was such a nice book I hate to see it end The characters are so well defined and witty with such definite personalities that they will be on my mind for a long while to come I loved the two dragons and how appropriate their names were for what they could do Each race also had their own idiosyncrasies and I was glad that the authors let you know how most of the characters ended up No doubt Fiery Flyer and Phreesit are in for a nasty surprise in book two Poor Urkhart he tried so hard so hard to fit in in the beginning and I am glad that Drewdop took him under his wingur hat at the end Can you imagine if he does actually master magic That would be so funny Well Drewdop would probably not think so There was a nice mix of good characters and bad characters and I loved how over the top King Davkosh was and how passive King Credos was Such opposites Poor Lutrec he has his hands full with Credos My favourite character I think was Valesco He just loved everything and was never fazed and so naughty to boot And the DUMMie s Ha ha Very effective name for them although they did save the day I loved the Goblin etiuette Brilliant But I was left wonderingwhat was Sister s real name Or is it Sister And poor Retivor On his own with Sparky and Ice Cube Not to mention Dilly Davkosh and Gory Gunora All in all a very well written book that grabs and holds the attention of the reader while leading you on a merry dance from one crazy scene to another I will definitely read book two if there is oneThis is an honest review given in exchange for reading the book
