***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
He has to kill an invulnerable dragon and he’s left his army at home.
There’s only one thing that will turn his fatal failure into survivable success – The Last Dragon Slayer.
Saul Karza, wizard of the Empire, has been given a quest by the Empress herself: To find and slay a mythical ‘noble dragon’; said to be near invulnerable. Instead of leading a large band of soldiers, archers and spell-casters, he sets out with two immigrant dock-workers and a homeless dwarf. What Saul needs is the legendary ‘Last Dragon Slayer’ on his side, because on this deadly quest it’s not only Saul’s favour with the Empress that’s at stake – but also his life.

I love dragons. Good or evil. Dragons are some of the coolest aspects of fantasy literature. This book deals with a group of fantasy characters on a question to kill a dragon. It sounds like you typical fantasy tale except that the author really crafts his characters and interpersonal dynamics really well. He plays upon them and it really brings another level of depth to this story. The dragon is a really interesting character, he is evil but he is also very intelligent and has a real grasp on morals and honor. It’s really interesting dynamic and it really shows there’s a bit of a grey area when we look at our moral fortitude as a human race. Overall, I think the book was quite a good action read. I think it needed a bit more editing time, as I saw some errors in the text, but the story is solid. I definately think that this author has serious potential and really understanding character development. I assume the next two books in the series continue in this same vein, and if so, I bet this author really took the time to plan a really interested series of novels. I highly recommend it for fantasy lovers.
