    1. I listened to this as an audiobook a while ago. The story is okay, but not a good book for listening. There are so many names and it jumps from one set of characters to another set, so that I ended up getting very confused about who they were talking about. It probably wouldn't be so bad if I had been reading it. Also, this book is like the Lord of the Rings (which was intended to be one book, but the publisher said it was too long so cut it into three parts) in that you only have a very small p [...]

    2. This review is not related to the novel whatsoever; it regards only the audiobook narration. I only got through 20 minutes even though I tried to force myself through to at least a half hour but I couldn't make it. The narration drones on in monotone almost exclusively and is very difficult to listen to. Hopefully I will give reading the book a try at some point!

    3. I started it as an audiobook. Oh, dear. So disappointing for such a great title. I suspect that the reader-aloud didn't help with his overdramatic tone and accent which didn't sound like any I had ever heard. Got through chapter three.

    4. New adventures aheadDragons #1 takes readers into uncharted territory and new characters are introduced, adding to an already stellar cast. Early on it was the mysterious circumstances and infighting that kept the story moving, now new circumstances and treachery takes us far beyond the kingdoms.

    5. Oh how quickly a decent story can be ruined by a poor narrator. I listened to the audio version and the narrator was so poorly paced and intensely over the top that it detracted immensely from the story. The story itself was decent. Dragons and fighting and magic but even if I had been reading, it wouldn't have captured my imagination.

    6. Five Stars!Stanek makes epic fantasy fun and something you can get into easily from the sweeping beginnings to the rousing ending. Lots of finely done action sequences balanced with beautifully written prose. Get this if you enjoy good writing, immersive experiences, and interesting characters.

    7. Dragons!Action packed is an understatement. Once the story gets going it doesn't stop and Stanek writes action masterfully. Frequently I kept reading long after I was supposed to stop to do something else. With all the plots and subplots it's like a smorgasbord. Would love to see this as a movie.

    8. Powerful, sweeping epic fantasy!Read this book so many times now I've lost count, at least ten. Suffice to say I'm a big fan of the author, and this is the book that I loved the most. His kingdoms books are good, excellent even, but the Dragon books are all action and adventure.

    9. Five Stars!Epic fantasy at its finest! Anyone who likes action- oriented fantasy should buy this without hesitation. Stanek is an excellent writer who writes action sequences well. His characters and scenes lift off the page.

    10. Fast, good, action and adventureThe kingdoms books were full of grand adventures, the dragons books are packed with action. The author gets deeper into his fantasy world, introduces more fantastic and interesting characters, and delivers a terrific read.

    11. Great reading!Really good, finished in a few days. Couldn't wait to start the next one. Recommended to anyone who enjoys fantasy
