The end is the beginning of this exciting apocalyptic tale by Ted Lazaris. An unexpected threat from space sends Nathan into an unexpected life journey for survival. This book is part science fiction, part fantasy and partly an all too possible scenario of what could really happen. It is thanks to unknown entities like DragonMan that the human race can survive. This book is great reading, Ted did not make it to complex for the average reader but complex and real enough where the reader can easily see himself in one of the characters. Highly recommend for the pre-teen all the up to adult who wants to forget about work tomorrow and lose themselves in a great story.
I am going to delete this book. I hate it. Sorry I ever ordered it. After trying to read it I am totally turned off as it is impossible to image what is going on. It makes no sense, except to repel me.
As a huge fan of apocalyptic thrillers, I have probably seen them all. But occasionally, something so incredibly entertaining comes along to shake me out of my jadedness. And Ted Lazaris’ ‘DragonMan: Face of the Unknown’ is one of those rare things. It powerfully sweeps you off your feet and relentlessly enthrals you with its white-knuckle, edge-of-your-seat story.
At the heart of Lazaris’ book is Luke Starr—a seemingly average guy who leads a seemingly quiet life. For the most part, Starr lives an uneventful life—except, when provoked by circumstances or the urgent need to save the world, Starr can morph into a powerful dragon. If that doesn’t grab your attention and drop your jaws, I don’t know what will.
In ‘Face of the Unknown’, you are left reeling from an impending apocalypse—an unknown, yet powerful dark force threatens to enslave mankind, looming like a dark cloud on the horizon, being heralded by a series of brutal murders. Lazaris does a fantastic job weaving the intricate plot into a coherent, compelling whole, especially in how he manages to gradually up the ante of suspense toward the incredibly page-turning climax. You will love how Luke Starr emerges from it all, giving the villain the end it deserves—but not before mankind almost tumbles down into the precipice. That’s why when I say this is “edge-of-your-seat entertainment,” I’m not kidding.
I love ‘DragonMan: Face of the Unknown’—it is intense, intricately woven, with a suspenseful pacing that holds your attention for hours. Add to that is Lazaris’ writing—clearly, the author’s language is icing on the cake, the gravy to what is already a highly entertaining yarn. Lazaris has that uncanny knack for making the reader believe that the fantastic things he describes are as real as the person sitting next to you—his gift in injecting verisimilitude, aside from his excellent prosody, make ‘DragonMan: Face of the Unknown’ one of the best books in its genre this year. Order a copy of this book today—or you have friends who love books from its genre, send this book to them as a gift. I’m betting my toy dragons that they will love this and will “devour” this from cover to cover. A resounding five stars for this book.
Wow this book is really great. I really loved the story I would go as far as saying it is now one of my favourite books.one of the things I really like was how quick the action started in the book it was on the first few pages you get a real feel for what’s happening.
The way the author has written this book is beautifully done you just want to read more and more I enjoyed every page. The story line is really well written and the author really gets your imagination going. I felt like I was really there with all the characters.
The direction the story line takes you on is truly exciting and the suspense of the story is great. The pending realization of an apocalyptic disaster that the main characters face makes for a really exciting story and a joy to read I love this type of story I could read books like this for hours.
I did not expect this book to be as good as it was I was thinking it was like a science fiction book but I was truly amazed at how the book progressed into a thriller with a bit of science fiction and mystery rolled into one book which creates a very interesting story.
I hope there is more to come from this author because they have a real talent of making every page very easy to read which keeps you reading for hours. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves science fiction or apocalyptic style books or thrillers this is a great story and I’m glad I downloaded this book
DragonMan is a novel incorporating a mixture of genres: Sci-Fi, thriller and a spattering of mystery. This combination truly makes for an absorbing read. The author has a style of writing that is easy on the eye and it works well here. Some fantasy Sci-Fi novels can become bogged down with complicated names of places, characters and components, losing their readers within the first few pages. However, this novel is nothing like that. It's very easy to understand and for many lovers of this genre, a definite page turner.
There was some occasions, I did become confused, simply because the action appeared to be hurried. It seemed to me that small chunks of dialogue or action were missing. I have to say, though, that they are not glaringly obvious but, I think it's only fair that I should be point it out. Also, towards the middle of the book, unfortunately, the proof reader has missed some errors and they were enough to cause me to shake my head a few times. Mistakes do happen; we're only human after all but, sometimes, it is necessary to re-read a manuscript more than once just to be sure everything is as it should be.
All in all, though, the author has delivered a novel with a story-line and plot that is imaginative yet down to earth. It makes for a book that wouldn't look out of place on anyone's book shelf regardless of age.
