Publisher's Summary

A new beginning, 1,300 years in the past....

In medieval Europe, three explorers from the distant future begin an ambitious project: to build a craft capable of reaching the stars. While their leader oversees the construction of a secret underground base in Iceland, the other two travel thousands of miles to negotiate with the rulers of Europe and recruit the most brilliant minds of the age. When the Iceland base comes under attack, the travelers try to return to defend their home, but they are trapped in Paris just as an army of 20,000 Vikings lays siege to the city. To survive, they must defend Paris from the hordes of Norsemen and fight their way back to Iceland to save their new home - and keep the dream of the Iron Dragon alive.

The Dawn of the Iron Dragon is the second installment in the Iron Dragon trilogy, which began with The Dream of the Iron Dragon. The saga will conclude with The Voyage of the Iron Dragon.

The Iron Dragon trilogy is being produced as part of the phenomenally successful Saga of the Iron Dragon Kickstarter, which raised more than $10,000. Meticulously researched and packed with action, this series is a must for sci-fi and alternate-history fans.

Better than Vol 1 - Still Pronunciation Errors

Iron Dragon 2 develops personalities better than the first book, and the story hangs together well. But some of the pronunciation errors that continue with nautical terms and with place names are highly irritating. Example: Lyon should be pronounced "Lee-own" not "Lye-on.' Still, a nice piece of alt-history and SF with a good take on the classic time traveler paradox.

Out of my mind in love

If you trust my word just buy this Iron Dragon series and start reading now. If not, let me try to convince you. I was so excited to keep on after the first book, I did not give myself time to write a review before listening to the second book. I have now bought the third book, but want to write a review before going on. So I am suppressing the urge to hit play. It is hard, I feel I am making a sacrifice. That is how much I want you and everyone else to find this gem.

I feel like after finding “The lord of the rings” all this time ago, and the first book of Harry Potter. And I don´t want to say which book is best. They are all the best, along with this Iron dragon series. The lord of the rings gave us all a new and wonderous world to adore, just so epic, and pretty much the same with Harry Potter. I had stopped reading books at all when I was given the task to read the first Harry Potter book for children all this time ago. I feel it saved my soul, haven´t let go of books since then.

The Iron dragon is more based on the real world though, no magic. The magic of the story is a brilliant author and “it could have happened like this”. Which is why I want to write a review now, maybe not a sentence I can write after the final book. Also if the research of the story stands a closer look (how long it takes to sail between countries etc.), this story should be read in every history class everywhere. The story does bring study of gone times to life, and brings it closer. In a way where maybe more people would consider thinking of gone generations as something more than stone age people with no brain. Now that may not be something that excites you, but no worry. The Iron dragon will be suitable for readers of many genres. The story has endless fast paces action and surprises at every corner. It is flawlessly written and is a multi dimensional gem. A few times it had me so emotional I was crying. But most of the time it had me so engrossed there was no thought other than keeping on. At one time it though had me raving mad at the state of our societies. That even after the industrial revolution, where we have all this high tech, making machines that make our work force obsolete, we still exploit starving children on other continents. Write me a line if you don´t grasp what I am talking about. Ok, now I am mad again. But not about the story itself. The story is glorious! I am in love with the Iron Dragon series. It excites my imagination to no end, the story is so complex and magical, exciting and the action is engulfing and endless. I lack words to do these books justice. If you are not yet convinced to read the series, keep in mind life is dull with just one flavor in your mouth, would you eat just one kind of food till end of times? Spice and different flavors make life more fun. And this one has high chance of making your day.

For those of us that like to listen to our stories, the narrator is just perfect. Somehow, would not have thought so without trying it out.

And now to the final book. Hitting play.
