Publisher's Summary

The invulnerable, super-strong warrior, Infidel, has a secret: she's lost her magical powers right at the moment when she needs them most. To keep a promise to a fallen friend, she must journey to the frozen wastelands of the north. Her quest leads her through the abstract realms of the Sea of Wine, where she uncovers a conspiracy that threatens all life. Hush, the primal dragon of cold, has formed an alliance with the ghost of a vengeful witch to murder Glorious, the dragon of the sun, plunging the world into an unending winter night. Without her magical strength, can Infidel possibly survive her battle with Hush? If she fails to save Glorious, will the world see another morning?

Another FANTASTIC entry into this series

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was an outstanding epic fantasy. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The story continues to be original and engaging. The narration was great. Jake Urry does a great job of bringing the book to life. I will definitely look for more from this series.

Another Great Adventure in the Dragon Apocalypse

Disclaimer: I was a beta reader for this book and was provided a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

I was asked to read this book without having read the first volume. As a new reader, I was able to jump into the story with no real problems, which is saying quite a lot because this novel picks up very shortly after Greatshadow.

During the course of the first novel, a promise was made and this volume sees how the main characters attempt to fulfill that promise. Despite the fairly linear goal, Maxey weaves new characters in deftly that expand the scope of the quest, new and original powers and continue to develop the mythology in entertaining ways.

The Dragon Apocalypse is notable as a fantasy novel that does not seek to retread Tolkien or others' paths through fantasy. In many ways, it is fantasy by way of Jack Kirby with larger than life threats, vast new worlds to explore while maintaining an intimate view of the unusual cast of characters. Expect jokes, wordplay, fantastic action sequences and surprisingly nuanced discussions of love, death, philosophy, religion and everything under (and in) the sun. Ghosts, shape changers, magic pirates, witches, princesses, ogres and of course gigantic elemental dragons and more await!

It's not quite like anything you've read before and leaves you guessing what is coming next right up until the final page.


You can pick this up on it's own or start with Greatshadow (which felt like a HeroQuest mission with fanatasy superheroes in the best way.)

For those of you who are adverse to starting series that are not finished - have no fear. All 4 volumes are written, published and available in your preferred medium(Audible audio books currently have 2 out of 4 with more on the way)


Note for the audio book: The narrator did a great job with some difficult voices including multiple types of golems and dragons.
