Dragon Airways - One way or another you're going to fly.
Emmet is a boy with special needs and unusual talents. His ability to sense magic makes him valuable to both sides of the war. Fleeing those sent to capture him, he and his sister board Dragon Airways, not knowing friend from foe. Some betray him; others risk their lives trying to save him. Never would he have guessed the impact an aging dragon would have on his life or the adventures they would have together.

I loved this wonderful story. Rarely will we find a story worthy to be a Classic tale, this is one that will become one. The narration by Fred Kennedy is outstanding in bringing this to life.
There are so many lines of great script in here about life and the struggles we all go through. Brian has written a story that I'm pleased to share not only with my Grandchildren but my children as well.
I haven't gotten so enraptured by a story like this in a long, long time. Be prepared to get lifted out of the standard fantasy dragon fare and be transformed to pure enjoyment of beautifully crafted words.
Thank you Brian!!!
This book was very enjoyable. I have only read one other book by Brian Rathbone, so I am not an expert on his work. I will say that this had a different feel to it and I truly enjoyed it. I hope there is a second installment at some point in the future.
I think I am old fashioned in the sense I like to create my own imagery as I read.
The first of Mr. Rathbone's Godsland series, Call of the Herald, I would think calls upon the same sweeping variety of characters, their believability, and vivid spectacles of dragonkind are brought back to bear in Dragon Airways.

The story of this book is exceptional. A sister and her little brother who no one understands and outcasts become heroes in sticking with their hearts' guidance and overcome all obstacles put before them. The development of the characters is once again a "magical" performance by Mr. Rathbone.
The well developed plot line and the cast of characters left me impatient to hear what was coming next.
I have loved every book in this series and feel like I am meeting new friends each time a new book about Godsland comes out. When Riette, Emmet's sister realized that her brother was magical and that he was very special and not to be ridiculed was very memorable.
My favorite character was Emmet and the relationship he had with his sister,Riette, Dashiq the dragon and magic.
I loved when Emmet hugged the stripped saltbark trees and channeled his life force back into them so that they would survive. The trait of caring for all things living makes him such a wonderful character.
This is a great series of books, the characters are well-developed, I love the dragons and it is fantasy escapism at its finest.
This was an exciting audio book that progressed in a smooth and rapid pace. Expertly narrated with multiple voice inflections and tones providing a very enjoyable experience. The story was unique and compelling not following any traditional scenarios common in many fantasy books. This made the enjoyment even greater while experiencing the action, drama, and feelings of both the humans and dragons in a dangerous world. It contains a diversified mixture of air ships with diesel, balloon, jet, and dragons. More a merging of Epic, Diesel Punk, and Urban Fantasy all rolled into one. The story was well written and well guided through many sequences of exciting dilemmas. Very well done by the author and the narrator. A combination I hope to see and hear more of in the future.
So I'm a big reader but you know how it is, people get upset if your engrossed in a good book while driving, small things like sharp bends , high cliffs etc just keep getting in the way ( I don't really read and drive ... honestly). Anyway my daughter got tired of my whinging about being bored during regular 2 HR drives and got me this. I've read the rest of Brian Rathbones books in the series and enjoyed them and I must say this story was equally engrossing. It took me a bit to get used to the narration but by chapter three I was so engrossed in the story I had moved past the fact the story was being narrated. The narrator himself speaks very clearly and is able to use his voice well to get ideas and character concepts across. Overall for anyone into fantasy story's with dragons this is a good buy. I admit to having limited experience with audio books but this has opened a door for me that I had not considered before for when I'm driving between jobs.
The story itself is set in the Godsland realm and is well paced, the characters well developed all with an added twist of steampunk. As is Brian Rathbones usual the book is family friendly so no worries with kids listening in to it either.
This stand alone book , set in the Godsland world was not a disappointment. Although it is not necessary to have read the other books set in the same world, I highly recommend reading the others if you enjoy this book. Character development was great as per Rathbone's other titles and the story was gripping from the start. I love that the main characters are young, I feel like I am there as they grow up. I also enjoyed the narration by Fred Kennedy. I must say that the storyline is exciting and has unexpected twists and turns.
I absolutely loved this book! Brian Rathbone has done it again! I was hooked from the opening line. Dragon Airways opens your eyes to a whole new world of dragons! Things I never thought I would see have come to pass! Keep up the great work, Brian.
Dragon Airways is extension of the Godsland Series that slips into a more futuristic setting. Instilling a steampunkish scenario into the former high fantasy storyline is a valid and enjoyable addition. Brian's wordsmithing has certainly not declined in this new tale.
I did have some disagreement with certain weaponry used and some overuse of seemingly unsurvivable situations. They were insufficient to damage my enjoyment of the story though.
Fred Kennedy did a good job narrating the audiobook. His voice not too high for the female and children characters and malleable enough for the multiple male characters.
