    "The Final Showdown We've been Waiting For!!"

    The Aurora is finally crewed to capacity and fighting with an alliance that is taking the fight to enemy homeworld. The battle scenes here are well written and not everyone survives. Attacking an enemy homeworld is presented as no easy task and we get to enjoy a storyline that takes place on both the ground and space. A fitting and satisfying end to the conflict in the Pegasis cluster. Now on to Earth?

    Story
    "Way too techical"
    What would have made Head of the Dragon better?

    less technical discussion rehashing the details of every little thing and more interpersonal relationships deeper personal feeling and relationships etc. If I hear Jason wondered, or Cameron wondered 1 more time ...


    Has Head of the Dragon turned you off from other books in this genre?

    nope I love war space stories just finished the omega force LOVED it.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment, I don't feel I have really connected with any of the characters. I wish they would space Cameron, she just drives me nuts

    "The best yet of an already great series!"
    What made the experience of listening to Head of the Dragon the most enjoyable?

    The world and character building , Ryk Brown really knows how to wright a smooth flowing story it never feels disjointed and the characters wow the characters you really feel something for them which is almost rare in a military sc-fi novel. Sure many good military sc-fi books generally have a couple characters you care about but there are many I care about in this series "Frontiers Saga", thank you Mr. Brown.


    What other book might you compare Head of the Dragon to and why?

    Lost Fleet and Star Force series but I like this series better.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely but other responsibility's prevailed.


    Any additional comments?

    This book as it's name entails "Head Of the Dragon" as in cut the head from the dragon really picks the pace up on the battle scenes compared to the previous books in this series. It was cool to read Ryk Brown cut loose with his battle scenes with many different battles happening at the same time on planet and in space, he can write some action scenes that is for sure!

    Story
    "Tactics, Skulduggery, and Honor"

    I love the action, the tactics, the tech in my Space Operas! But I feel I must warn you, the undecided Audio Book Purchaser, I had shell stock after I listened to Head of the Dragon. There was so much good action punctuated with destructive turncoats, all consuming vengeance, humor, and new characters, I was red eyed, shaky, and not quite grounded caused by a one sitting listen. Ryk Brown and Jeffry Kafer are a gold plated duo who deliver! I highly recommend Head of the Dragon but also recommend you start with the 1st book in the series. Be prepared for some sleepless nights.....

    I've been writing software for over twenty years. Most of the books in my collection are science fiction or computer related materials.

    "Another. Great Instalment."

    Another great follow up. Well put together with lots of twists and turns. Not to deep and not overly complicated. The story flows and is an exiting read.
