I have always loved books about dragons. I've read the Pern series, the DragonKnight books, The Dragon Prince series, etc., so I am no stranger to the..Show More »se types of books. Lately however, I had wandered away from these books to explore other nooks and crags of the literary world. Nothing has drawn me in like the books I read in my youth. So, in a desperate night of searching audible for an enjoyable, enthralling listen I stumbled upon Dragon Champion.
First off, let me be clear here in that I have yet to finish the listen (I'm about 3/4 of the way through) but have already downloaded the second book in the series!
It has rekindled my love for these books. I listen to this book in the morning as soon as I awake and get ready for my day and at night as I am winding down. The story is gripping and the narration superb.
If your a dragon lover like I am (as I write this I have 5 dragon figurines on my desk watching over me) go ahead and spring for the download, your inner dragon will break free and soar!
I think my favorite parts were the ones where there was some reference to the first book in the series, I liked feeling Wistala's hope and happiness w..Show More »hen she heard any sort of rumor about her brother.
Perfect story on why you should not judge unless you have walked a mile in the same shoes. This is my favorite book of the series. As always the narr..Show More »ation is great. The story pulled me in and made me cheer for every win the Copper achieved.
I've enjoyed these stories, but this one felt overwrought. There were some big, confusing new plot lines attempting to bind the three tales/tails toge..Show More »ther - with limited success, in my opinion. I think we're up to five different hominid races now, all being rendered similarly but each with their own alliances, historic betrayals, and generally irksome traits that influence decisions. At one point, I considered going back to my first reading of 'The Name of the Rose' and keeping 3x5 cards on everyone so I can keep them straight. That's more work than I'd like to do for a fun little fantasy series. I'm hoping Knight can punch his way out of this sticky exposition and get back to the nice storytelling tempo of the first few books.
Not unlike reading a story about the Roman empire.
This was a good story. My opinion from the last book of dragons being a little scatter brained has been put aside. The intrigue, plotting, and polit..Show More »icking of the various clans kept me wanting to read more. The Performance in this book is out standing. I honestly believe David Drummond is a key factor in making these audio books a success.
This book feels hurried, flat and lacks the depth and color of the others. The ending was rushed and, in my opinion, ridiculous.
You might a..Show More »s well read, er.. listen to it though because if you are reading this review you have likely already gone through the rest of the series. Even though this book is not at all in the class of the first three or four books, this is the only ending we are going to get so you might as well go ahead and finish it out.
If you don't expect much, you won't be disappointed.
