Paperback Ø Dragon Strike PDF/EPUB ↠

Dragon Strike This book has a few setbacks when compared to the previous.I found the few typos distracted me from the story And at one point, I m pretty sure that instead of saying AuRon the author accidentally says the copper which left me very confused The last 100 pages felt forced, I didn t enjoy reading it, and i feel ripped off cause there was a massive build up towards the final battle And it all cheaps out at the end Also there s actual magic being used by the red queen The previous books had This book has a few setbacks when compared to the previous.I found the few typos

books had no such thing, and it was all rumors within the story This meant that you needed something as interesting as magic within realistic terms for the story, where as now because the author did use magic, it feels like a deus ex machina The crystal that the queen gave auron allowed her to control him, but when the copper placed it in his bad eye he was fine, which i didn t understand There were parts I enjoyed, though not as many or as deep as the previous three books The meeting point between the three siblings is well built up towards and explained, but they don t quite talk muchafter that, The siblings each had their moments of glory, and they stayed within character, AuRon being a sleek fighter and a good diplomat, Wistala being knowledgeable about Hypat and such, The copper Tyr being a fairly wise leader Though i didn t feel any significance from any hominid characters other than the queen Anyway, i was not impressed with this book, and it left me skeptical of the next two We ll see Having reread the book in preparation for reading the 5th one fresh off the shelf, I will say that this one is not quite as good as the first three Gone is the focus on a single character in this book, and instead the story focuses on all three of our main characters plus a couple of others on occasion The good news in this book is that some loose ends are tied up, some worldbuilding present since the beginning of this foray is being explored in further depth, and we get to see our Copper hero Having reread the book in preparation for reading the 5th one fresh off the shelf, I

our Copper hero from book 3 make good on his promise.All in all, it s a pretty decent sequel Far from perfect there are moments where the writing slips a little as the story attempts to advance along at a slightlyhurried pace but it s a good followup I m looking forward to Dragon Rule I had been waiting for the dramatic meeting between the siblings since the moment I opened Age of Fire 2, and chills ran down my spine upon realizing that all of the siblings were going to have their own first book I suffered through the horrors, plot holes, and the Mary Sue main character of Age of Fire 3 I

book I suffered through the horrors, plot holes, and the Mary Sue main character of Age of Fire 3 I re read over the confusing and unexplained developments in the first part of this book Then it happened, the fated meeting of the siblings approached, I felt giddy with anticipation.The highly anticipated meeting took two pages Instead of meeting as equals, the lead characters of the fantastic first two books literally bowed down to their brother and forgot decades of resentment, or family ties to each other The next line is a spoiler , but I can t bear to leave it out, so you ve now been warned During this fated meeting, AuRon, the silver dragon, hero of the first book, is abruptly MAGICALLY POSSESSED with no warning, no reason, no foreshadowing, no consequences, and scarcelythan a hint out of folklore that magic has ever even possibly existed in this universe All the dragons in the entire world, without question, discussion, or second thought, follow the copper dragon, their vampire god king, invincibly into war I literally used this book as kindling for my fireplace Dragon Strike is the fourth book in the series and like the others it is a solid read I personally like the third one better but this one is quite different I was wondering what Knight would do now that all the dragon siblings have been accounted for in each of the first three books Well he starts writing the story in all of their perspectives, alternating from AuRon to Wistala to the nameless copper It works very well and varies the plot evenso than the other books due to it s broad P Dragon Strike is the fourth book in the series and like the others it is a solid read I personally like the third one better but this one is quite different I was wondering what Knight would do now that all the dragon siblings have been accounted for in each of the first three books Well he starts writing the story in all of their perspectives, alternating from AuRon to Wistala to the nameless copper It works very well and varies the plot evenso than the other books due to it s broad POV range of all three of the siblings The big encounter when all three of them meet is quite possibly my favorite part of the whole book It does not happen until three quarters of the way through the book but when it does no spoilers it is quite an exciting scene in the book I assure you Overall a solid read Love dragons Fantasy novels The previous books of the series Pick this up and give it a read A very well done book and finely crafted series thus far Although I strongly reccomend picking up the other books before Dragon Strike to get the most out of the story This whole set has great potential but sadly doesn t quite get thereA good read but no meat on the bones So far all have started well and then seem to rush to an end, almost like the author has somewhere better to be and suddenly realised the late hour of the day and caps it off with a quick ending Build, build, build and then blink and miss it This book, as all the others, starts and builds well, all are lacking in character building but this was promising but the end Oh my The en This whole set has great potential but sadly doesn t

really enjoyed it There were errors, of course, like name swapping, some confusing writing, scenes where I had trouble figuring out who was saying certain lines of dialogue one scene during the climax was really bad in this area And characters seem to be in multiple places at once, and I don t mean a character with another character s name.Having said all that, however, the book isn t as bad as others seem to make it Most complaints I ve seen seem to be about the siblings meeting too late I really enjoyed it There were errors, of course, like name swapping, some confusing writing, scenes

book and too anti climatic Really, though, something like this cannot be forced, which it probably would be if Knight had the meeting earlier As for being too anti climatic, do people really expect AuRon and Wistala to pounce on RuGaard the minute they see him Not only would such an action throw their development back, but it would have ended the whole Age of Fire story a bit prematurely there is no way AuRon and Wistala could have gotten out of there before they would have been shredded to pieces.I think Knight handled the encounter excellently I really love the relationship between the siblings Especially between AuRon and RuGaard not friends, but not exactly enemies While I enjoyed this fourth book I found it somewhat slow at times or perhaps less interesting than the previous books.Can t help but feel the three siblings are being set up to fight against each other and dragonkind will again be in danger as they seem to lack understanding on how to forge a long lasting relation with the humans and other hominids Also what of the dragons in sadda vale and all those trolls guarding them. The author of the national bestselling Vampire Earth series continues the saga of the world s last dragonsThree dragon siblings are among the last of a dying breed, and the final hope for their species survival AuRon, Wistala, and Copper find themselves at odds over the coming human war AuRon thinks dragons should have no part in the affairs of humans Wistala believes dragons and man can peacefully co exist And Copper has designs of his own on the worldAnd the civilized humans who have turned to Copper for assistance against their savage enemies have just given him the perfect opportunity to fulfill his plans Another great read from E.E Knight.I felt that at some points of the novel the pacing was a little off the first half too slow, the second half too fast, but ultimately a well crafted tale The characters as always were amazing Copper being my favourite so far.Unsure where the series will go from here, as pretty much everything seems to have wrapped up. Expected a lot based on the books 1 and 2, but the book suffered from poor editing plot and consistency just absolutely fell apart towards the end of the book I frankly lost interest in the series because of this poor installment after the less interesting book 3.
