Dragon's Very First Review

This is the very first review of Book One: Dragon. It was written by Jessica McQuay, author of Black Moon.

Here's what she had to say:

Mr. Petrae let me just start by saying you are a master storyteller. Your talent shines through in this novel and I now consider myself a huge fan. I didn't want to put this book down and was saddened that my life kept pulling me away from your world.

I don't even know where to start. The story is filled with so much that I'm afraid I will leave something out and not do it justice in my review. To keep from giving too much away I will stick to the basics and tell you my general thoughts.

First, it is hard to describe the two different time periods that collide in this world. And I am in awe of how beautifully Petrae pulled it off. I was worried at the beginning that I wouldn't be able to wrap my mind around it, but he does such an amazing job that it feels natural and easy. Like its how things have always been described before and he isn't saying anything new...except that he is.

This book is filled with Princes and warriors that use technology as weapons. And then there are "savages" that use nature and the earth. Rone, the Rook Prince and advanced nano user survives an attack on his life, but in doing so lands at the foot of Keiara, the daughter of the Terraquois Chief. The Terraquois and the Rooks have battled since the beginning of time. Each of them believe the other to be horrible in their own way. But when Keiara nurses Rone back to health and decides to show him the errors of his peoples judgments by letting him see how the Terraquois live, not only does a bond form between them, but love begins to the stir the air.

I don’t want to give anymore away, but an unmatched love is only the beginning of the problems that Rone and Keiara face. This story is filled with supernatural, paranormal beings tied together in a rich plot line fraught with death, war, and love.

The characters were vivid with very unique personalities and I grew to love each of them in some way. Petrae made it easy to see how each person and each side came to feel the way that they did despite all of them being so very wrong in their harsh judgments of one another.

Read this story. You will not be disappointed. In fact I guarantee that you’ll be pleasantly surprised. I wish I could give something higher than a 5 Star rating because Dragon and Mr. Petrae deserve it.

Stars: Five out of Five.

Thanks, Jessica.
