As people rises to war under the evil influence of a black dragon, others in the land must put aside differences and doubt to stop the darkness from overtaking everything.
I read the summary of this book and wanted to read it since it is a genre I like to read. Though the plot is good, I wasn’t able to get into it. The story had adventure and generally moved well, it just seemed to be words on a page instead of something that I could immerse my imagination in.
The places and characters are well detailed, maybe a bit too well in some places. I think shortening some of the description segments would have helped the story from slowing down at times. I also think that removing the edgier parts, like describing how little clothing was worn and the several cuss words, would make the book better.
Dragon’s Fire has potential, but it needs some polishing. The positive messages of faith, forgiveness, and putting aside differences are there, but they can get lost among everything else.
I received a complimentary copy from the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions are my own.
