    Bitterwood has spent the past twenty years hunting down dragons, one at a time. But he is getting old and the hate that he has carried in his heart since a group of dragon-soldiers killed his family is beginning to fade. When he kills the royal prince dragon, the king decides the only retribution is genocide of the human race. Bitterwood is forced to enter the Free City, the grand trap designed to eradicate mankind, with thousands of others. Can he lead from within, or can a select few dragons unite to stop the king's madness from becoming reality.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Bitterwood to be better than the print version?

    I have enjoyed both the print and audio versions of Bitterwood. I would gladly experience either, but audio books are so convenient and bring the action to life.


    What other book might you compare Bitterwood to and why?

    I got back into epic fantasy with James Maxey's Bitterwood, Storm Front by Jim Butcher and Elantris by Brandon Sanderson. I enjoyed each of them, but just comparing each volume on it's own bitterwood was my favorite.


    What does Dave Thompson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Dave Thompson did a wonderful job of bringing to life a variety of characters and making each sound unique. He did a wonderful job as an aged dragon scientist and as a scared 9 year old girl. He kept each voice unique and filled each line with the appropriate pathos and emotion. He even did a few animal sounds, singing and sound effects. I hope he does the rest of the trilogy.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book is epic. It has elements from fantasy and science fiction. It is in different turns humorous, action packed, dramatic and the surprises keep on coming. It keeps you guessing right to the end.


    Any additional comments?

    I received this audio book as a free review copy, but I had read and loved the book beforehand. I asked for the review copy so that I could express how much I enjoy this book and author and encourage others to give it a try.
