    Let me begin by saying this was my first experience in the Dragon Realm so I have no prior knowledge of the world or charactersThe audiobook narrator was very good particularly with the Dragon voices However she struggled to create the depth of male voices considering there's not a single female main character I have to wonder what possessed them to go with a female narratorI suspect it's because it's my first time in the world but I spent nearly half the book in a state of confusionIn the end the characters were very well developed and the story well thought out But as is the case for many shorter fantasy books it seems to jump around to many locations and events without spending enough time on any of themThat being said however the book has a powerhouse ending that makes every other weakness than worthwhile

    On a world where shape changing dragons rule civil war is brewing Caught in the middle is Nathan Bedlam whose family has served the dragon lords as mages for generationsBut nothing is as it seems and truth remains elusive

    I had read uite a few of Richard Knaak's books on the subject of Diablo or Warcraft and I always found them to be the best of that respective world But I had never touched the Dragonrealm series or anything else that Knaak has done Most people would think this be an odd one to get started with since this is written as a preuel and I should be reading Firedrake or Ice Dragon first perhaps But not this guy so let's dive in This trilogy starts long long ago when Nathan Bedlam was the lead wizard to Lord Purple a massive drake dragon He has two sons Dayn and Azran who also serve as wizards to the drake and there are many other mages as supporting characters who serve in a similar capacity In as little spoilers as possible one day Nathan goes to the Libraries of Penacles to find the answers to information he so desperately seeks However there is one little problem with that Such access is forbidden without the consent of Lord Purple This sets off a chain of events and the shattering of secrets which escalates the tensions between the Lord drakes and their human mage servants to a breaking point The wealth of characters in this novel seems overwhelming at first but by the end you embrace each one as they leap upon the page Many experienced Dragonrealm readers will recognize various characters such as Shade or Darkhorse or Gryphon I however greatly enjoyed reading about Jekrith Terin the seneschal to Lord Purple who has sinister intentions of his own In fact it's hard to find a character that's not interesting and does not raise your ire every time they get mentioned The plot twists should also be highly commended A lot of times twists are thrown about in a manner that makes no sense or are done for shock This is certainly not the case here Every plot twist felt jarring but yet moved the story in a sensible direction The ending is phenomenal and unless the reader is very perceptive they will be slapping their head in I wish I saw that coming But I didn't really want to see it coming because this book was so entertaining After the first few chapters I was certainly willing to forgive the glossing over of certain subjects that I'm sure were covered in the originals In fact maybe it's better this way to know the history before diving into the main course Like watching Red DragonManhunter before diving into Silence of the Lambs Except I've seen Silence of the Lambs probably about a dozen times and Red Dragon and Manhunter once or twice each but we'll let that go for now Anyway very high recommendation for this title and one that I will be looking for the seuels in short order The negatives are few for any reader and even fewer if you are a veteran of the series It's well written fiction by one of the modern day savants when it comes to fantasy Enjoy or else become just another pawn to your master drake Take care

    I enjoyed the story in this book I like the characters a lot having gotten to know them in his other books This world of the dragon realm it’s mysterious history and the history between the different races captures my attention in every book That having been said I had such a difficult time with the actual writing there were so many grammatical errors I really struggled to enjoy what should’ve been a terrific four or even five star story This book needed significant editing before it was published

    Znáte ten pocit kdy se vrátíte ke čtení jedné staré série a je to jako byste potkali svého starého kamaráda? Tak přesně to jsem zažíval při čtení prvního dílu trilogie Dragonrealm Legendy které předchází celé základní sérii Dragonrealm Když se na scéně objevili známí hrdinové jako Gwendolyn Shade Temný kůň Azran plakal jsem štěstím Když pominu že je svět Dračí říše od Knaaka srdcovka tak se to četlo zatraceně dobře a nechybělo tomu nic Jasných pět hvězd

    35 I am not completely certain if I’m the only one but it raised so many uestions continually and never had the time because of that to answer even some of them I get it’s a series but it’s continuously too confusing although I was able to keep up sort of ignoring the uestions honestly I’ll write an actual review later

    Reading this series has a prereuisite you have to have read all of his dragon novels to be able to jump into this one Because it has been almost 20 years since I read those it took me a few chapters to remember the parameters of how this world worked However once in the book is a uick read and uite enjoyable Looking forward to the other two

    Yes I liked it It did feel a little rushed but I also don't know if there is a way to tell the story better than how it was hinted at in the original books I wanted time with Azran the hero I was actually hoping that the trilogy would have been setup so as to show that Azran's downfall was due as much to his own narcissism and uest for power as it was to being overlooked by his fellow spellcastersI'm only going three stars because of the formatting errors Also much like with Shade there is an instance where one character's name is substituted for another's in the middle of a paragraph I'd give the story and writing four stars But there are formatting issues

    Mezi první čtvrtinou a první třetinou jsem měla problém se začíst ale jak jsem dosáhla 45% už to šlo hladčejiKniha je z minulosti takže se čtenář setkává s několika postavami které jsou buďto už po smrti nebo v průběhu původní série Dragonrealm umřouNevím jistě proč jsem si na Nathana zvykala ze všech Bedlamů nejdéle Teda jedno tušení bych měla ale nesmím ho vyzraditMladá učnice Gwen je rozkošná 3Jsem ráda že se do hry o říše zapojila i další rasa a není to pořád jen o dracích a lidech
