    Great idea and world, not a pageturner I have selvom encountered a book that held my interest yet took so long to read. It was a blessing and yet torture although i am at a loss as to what caused my reading to be at such slow pace.

    I think this is some of the best writing I've ever lucked into. I'm a huge fan of Robert Jordan and Mercedes Lackey and now Michael Miller. What an adventure. Great writing. I can't wait to start a new adventure with Michael R. Miller. It was an epic journey. I think this is some of the best writing I've ever lucked into.

    Could not put it down. After a recommendation from Reddit. I read this epic fantasy. The world building is very clever throughout. Characters grow and build with really good relationships and I love that dragons and fairies were involved. Not a fan of the shadow characters and chapters but were required for the story.

    I have just finished reading The Dragon's Blade Trilogy and I must confess - it was absolutely amazing! Having said that I was a little disappointed as the story left me wanting. I would have loved to have had a few words about what lay beyond the portal for Darnuir and his people and whether or not they could reopen the portal to allow the remainder of their people join them. I was immensely satisfied when Darnuir shifted into his dragon self (this was something I hoped would happen all the way I have just finished reading The Dragon's Blade Trilogy and I must confess - it was absolutely amazing!

Michael Miller really brought this world to life and his imagination knows no bounds - he is to be applauded. I was hooked from the very first page until the very last. This is a trilogy I would recommend to anyone who enjoys the fantastical and I will read it again and again.

    A good read An enjoyable read in a well thought world. I especially appreciated the treatment of faith vs religion and the unique roll and fallibility of the dragons.

    Someone please tell me this gets better? Give me a good reason why I should stick it out? I see all these perfect 5 star reviews- and yet I can’t get past the first half of the first book! The premise and apparent plot are intriguing to my thirst for epic fantasy, but the poor character development (if it exists at all), unrealistic dialogue, and lack of scene setting has me bored beyond tears! 5 stars people?

Really? Maybe I’m too stingy with my stars, yet I’ll give this one two for the benefit of the doubt and storyline, which is making me feel generous. I’ve only ever rated a few books 5- A Song of Ice and Fire series, Outlander series off the top of my head. My new fav author is Mark Lawrence- would give both the Broken Empire and The Ancestor series 4 1/2 stars. These are all books full of emotion and well written all around. You become absorbed in the settings and deeply invested with the characters- you feel their pain and joy- I feel nothing but slight annoyance and boredom reading the first book of this series 😟 I SOOO want to like it- someone convince me

    These books were a great holiday read - lots of action & not too taxing on the brain. I liked the different POV writing & the fact you didn’t have to wait too long to find out what each character was up to. So why did it lose a star? In my opinion a trilogy should be 3 complete stories that could be read independently of each other & these are not. This is ONE book split into 3 parts. I’m guessing authors do it to make more money? Personally I’d rather pay more for 1 book & get a complete story, These books were a great holiday read - lots of action & not too taxing on the brain.

So in summary, definitely worth a read, but be aware you’ll need to buy all 3 books.

    Really great story!! I couldn't put trilogy down. The epic story of good versus evil. Humans, Fairies, Trolls and Dragons all fighting sometimes with each other but always against evil. A story of rebirth, literally and figuratively, Darnuir crown Prince of the Dragons in his first life looks down on humans and in his second life is raised by humans. How messed up can that make a person? Read the story you won't be sorry. Really great story!! I couldn't put trilogy down. The epic story of good versus evil.

    Very good book series Very enjoyable and well written book—well-developed characters and plenty of action, adventure, with a little romance thrown in. I highly recommend this book. And as a side note: it would be appropriate for teen readers as it had no sexual content and very little in foul language.

    A worthy effort Mr. Miller does a fine job of developing and maintaining the many characters needed in a work of this site and nature. He also tells a compelling tale of right vs. wrong while recognizing the existence and need for shades of gray. Overall a good read - especially for young adults.

    Very good story Really enjoyed reading the trilogy. Only two things I did not care for in the book. One is that the physical appearance of the dragons was not described and explained early enough in the book. The other was the complex sub-plots that were given up on or never had a concrete ending. Overall, I would definitely recommend this book to other readers.

    4.5 stars Well, I bought both the eBook and the Audible versions for the complete trilogy, so I am going to review the trilogy as a whole first. Then, let's see if I can go back and remember my feelings about each book in particular. First of all, let me say that the narration for the series was great. I even looked up who it was to see if it was someone I was familiar with. It wasn't, but I'll be sure to be on the lookout for him in the future. His name was David Cruse.

Then, let's see if I can go back and remember my feelings about each book in particular. First of all, let me say that the narration for the series was great. I even looked up who it was to see if it was someone I was familiar with. It wasn't, but I'll be sure to be on the lookout for him in the future. His name was David Cruse. This is my second series from this author (my first being the Song of Chaos series / Ascendant) which I thought was phenomenal, so I think I came in to this with higher than usual expectations. The good thing is that I wasn't disappointed when I finished the series. The author has done a remarkable job of creating a world that is robust and unique, with lots of different characters and character types (Fairies, Dragons, Humans, Trolls, Demons...etc). The story actually took me a little while to get into - I'm not sure why, but sometimes (especially in the Fantasy genre) I have a harder time with the introduction and the world building when I am listening versus reading actual print so I will turn off the audio and start actually reading. I ended up doing this with book 1 in the series and once I seemed to get a feel for the settings and situations that were occurring in the beginning, I jumped back to audio. After that I just alternated between the two formats - which is my usual MO. I guess what comes to mind when I think about the completed trilogy is a feeling of pensiveness. After reading the last page - and the note by the author talking about why he added the last two chapters - I sat still for a little while to let everything soak in. My feelings were kind of all over the place. And I say that in a positive way. It has been my experience that if I am not ready to immediately begin the first page of a different new book the minute I've finished with the old one - the author has done something right. I read alot of books, and I do mean ALOT. It takes quite a bit to hit me emotionally enough to want to stay in that world even after the last page has been written. There was also a part of me that was trying to figure out what the heck I felt about the ending and the actions of the last 20% of the book 3. The fact that Michael Miller (MM) created a protagonist who I came to respect and feel protective of, as well as an antagonist who I wanted to leave pinned up against a tree with a sword....well, that is some powerful writing. The trilogy was filled with lots and lots of unique and interesting characters and we were able to get a really good feel for most of them. The main character (MC) Darnuir is a dragon that we meet in the beginning - as an arrogant and prideful dragon - who may or may not have been justified in his feelings and actions of his first life. We then follow Darnuir throughout the next 3 books as he begins a journey of reflection, doubt, insecurity....and eventually, enormous growth. This is HIS journey, even though there is a story along side of it that deals with a war between the dark and the light. The first book revolves around Darnuir being mortally wounded, rescued by a wizard and then being transformed from the 60+ year old dragon prince, to being actually and literally reborn and then raised in the human world of hunters. He does not know he is a dragon and it is those human experiences that help to create the dragon that he is becoming the second time around. There is a lot of info dumping in the beginning as the author is setting the stage and the characters for us. There are three main groups/species involved as allies in a war against demons and spectres and then there is the "big bad" and evil Rectar. In this book we see the struggle that Darnuir is experiencing as he tries to reconcile his two vastly different sides (his prior life experiences as a dragon and his current life growing up as a human hunter). He is also thrown into the deep end of the pool when he learns that not only is he a dragon, but he is the King of the dragons. He is pretty clueless to everything - especially the preconceived prejudices that the dragon race has towards humans. As he stumbles along (in the middle of a war) trying to get a grasp on the new expectations placed upon him, he also realizes that he wants this second chance to mean something. He wants to try to create an actual REAL alliance between the three species. It is apparent from the beginning that this is going to be much harder than he expected. In the first book we see Darnuir begin to make decisions that start the changes and the improvements away from the way that things have always be done. We meet Cosmo, Brackendon Cassandra, Blaine, Fidelm and Blalock to name just a few of the "main" characters. We also learn about Dekoona and the wizard Castallan - the "bad guys" and Castallan's lust for power in the name of saving humanity. Again, lots of information given to set the stage, yet I was still able to be pulled into the story and was eager to move on to book 2. The second book in the story is jammed packed with action as well as the battle for the Bastian and the duel of the last two "official" wizards. Relationships and characters are more fully fleshed out as we learn the motivations and beliefs of the various participants in this war. MM does a really good job of beginning to build the ties that will bind the characters together as events begin to accelerate and the spectres and the demon horde begin their attempt to attack and invade. The "alliance" journey that Darnuir gives to Garon to lead is the perfect example of the challenges that occur because of the history and animosity between the races. It also ends up being the example that it IS possible for prejudices to be overcome, but it takes work, as well as patience (and quite a long amount of book time). Book 2 has lots going on at all times from different POV's and in different locations. It was in this book that we begin to understand that there are more forces at play than meets the eye. In book 3, things begin to fall apart. Darnuir is recovering and out of commission, and we begin to see how fragile the alliance between allies really is. Without Darnuir available to handle all of the various disputes and trust issues of the various races, things start unraveling. It shows just how much Darnuir was already able to accomplish in his short time as the leader of the dragons. We also learn more about the Guardian Blaine and we get to see the conflict between these two dragons as it is revealed that there have been many, many secrets that have been kept for a very long time. I'm not even sure how to condense all of the happenings that occur in this book, but it is safe to say that there is conflict as well as conflict resolution. This is shown in many ways, such as the issues experienced with the group on the trip to the Highlands lead by Garon, the battles between the Light Bringers and the humans and then the actions of the lead spectre Dukoona. There has also been enormous treachery by Arkus, whose selfishness and lust for power and control take him way past the line with actions that are NOT forgivable. Cassandra is prominent, yet to me, she is not a likeable character and I had many problems with her. Again, lots and lots, and lots of things going on as we barrel towards the final battle against Rectar. In the end, Darnuir is the one to bring everyone together to attempt to defeat Rectar. Again, we see MAJOR character growth from Darkuir, Blaine and Blalok. Secrets are unearthed and trust is placed in the least likely group. Without going into spoilers, the action is constant and very nerve wracking. There is definitely a payoff for the tension that has continued to build throughout the 3 books. My reason for pensiveness was because I had to take a moment to figure out for myself whether I felt that the end result was actually a good thing for the dragons. I also needed time to determine (in my own mind) whether or not a certain traitor was sufficiently punished. In the end, the fact that my mind continued to stay in the world created by Michael Miller was an answer in and of itself. I realized that I was completely invested not only in the story, but in the characters. I truly cared about the outcome and the effects that outcome had on several characters. Truly, that is the best statement that I can make about this series.

    i apsolutly love it just that in the beginning it sounds really bloody and evil but instristing and definitely will keep reading this book until the end and the dragon seems really powerful as well which makes me wonder if it will be stopped

    Didn't want it to end! I really enjoyed this harrowing journey of the Light against the Dark!!! It has a new take on dragons and several other endearing beings. The bad guys, those of the darkness, were interesting also. Wish the ending had given more about some of the characters, but I'm not sure how that could have been done...perhaps you'll surprise us with a follow-up book, Michael Miller!!! Please!!!

    *no spoilers* I thoroughly enjoyed this trilogy. Though I must say I am glad Miller added two additional chapters to the final book after readers complained about the lack of a conclusion. Those final chapters are a nice touch and end to a perfect trilogy. Great characters, magic and wonderfully created world. Maybe more romance? I'm a bloke so not fussed...maybe I am.... What a trilogy! Cheap too on Amazon for kindle. *no spoilers* I thoroughly enjoyed this trilogy.

    Traitorous backstabbing ingrates with a racist agenda. The author makes the hero so super all races, at the utter expense of his own people whom in truth he hates, despises and utterly, continually betrays. Whoop, whoop, what a hero.

Ask me I would rather have faith, than the glib ignorance of superior poot, thinking I am God. Poor humanist, ignoble man's greatest achievement is his ability at depravity. It is only by the grace of God ... I'd rather worship a true God than a some inept bigot who has grandiose dreams of debauchery. Petty man, the tower of Babel is your finest hour as you stumble around unable to understand any other. Whoop, whoop humanism at it's finest. About all this author has done is prove that there is a God for he undeniably proves humanity's not capable of even being a trusted steward. But all I desired was a simple sci-fi story. Not some humanist dribble. It is sad I think the author 's sole intend here is to promote liberal humanism and to mock God. A spoiled here: He has a human kill a dragon, but it is the dragons fault? His own people he slaughters non stop. Betrays continually and he despises them so much he surrounds himself with everyone else but his own. Unless a fem. Bunch of traitorous bull pucky. I made it past book one. Struggled to even grasp book two, except for the author's desire to mock any religious beliefs. That and to promote the new world order bull. Sad I just wanted a decent sci fi to read. This is NOT it. Just a person out to promote his own beliefs.

    Thanks to Evan Winter for recommending this in a recent newsletter! It was well worth it. I listened to the audiobook and my bf read the ebooks all in one go, and we had a lot of fun discussing the many twists and turns and debating how we would have handled a given scenario. At first glance, you might think this trilogy is just another lotr clone, but while it had a lot of similar elements, these books are much more enjoyable due to the excellent characterization and unpredictable plot.

The characters are without exception very complex people who sometimes act with honor, sometimes make bad choices, and sometimes completely surprise you. High points: *The specters!: imagine the nazgul giving sauron lip and doing their best to be as inefficient as possible. They were such characters and I really really want that shadow power. *Gregaine and the splintering isle folk were awesome. I want to be them when I grow up, particularly after a certain scene in Book 3! Low points: *I didn't love how Cassandra became so needy during her stay in Brevia when she was such a strong independent character in Book 1. I would have liked to see her play more of a role in the final battle or something equally important. *I didn't really like the very end (particularly how things wrap up for Darnuir). It wasn't badly written or anything, just not my cup of tea. I had all sorts of ideas of how I hoped things would play out, so that could be part of it too.
