A story of loyalty, devotion, and turmoil.
A very tired young man thinks back to the day he received the gift and curse of his dragon companion.
Condemned to live a life of exile with the beast, he learns as a young boy that the price of peace for his village comes with the greatest of all costs.

For me the dragon of unrest by Anthony Russo is an example of a problem I feel we face with a lot of books, which is “a book with a great idea ruined by the plot”.
I think it’s so hard to review a book with only 30 pages (only half an hour for an audio book copy ), but I will try my best. The story talks about a tired young man who is remembering how he got where he is now (and by that I mean with a dragon who eats humans, and as an outcast ,because of this dragon ) ….yep that’s it.
Well I really liked the main idea, because it was kind of new and creative idea, the plot had a very good potential for a great trilogy, yet it just ended so fast to even enjoy it ,the characters were so pale and undeveloped (because the shortness of the story I think ), I was very frustrated with the ending, it was very disappointing and empty.
The narrator is Felbrigg Herriot, and I feel that he performed it in more dramatic way than it really deserved, and while I liked how he controlled his voice to become so calm and sad to maintain the feelings of the main character, I felt that some scenes weren’t performed as it should be, the action was kind of lost in the narration ,yet in general it delivered the inside monologue in a very good way.
