Welcome to my blog spot- grab a cup of coffee and a good book ;-)
4 Stars for this out of this world dragon fantasy adventure series from Caleb Wright
Book 1- The Odyssey of The Dragolitha
This was a short and action-filled fantasy story that read like an anime cartoon from what I know of anime. It tells the tale of a hunting party of five, Incindia, Khu, Tatsuo, Ju-Long and Kaida who retire to the town of Vagaria for the night only to be struck in the epicenter of a destructive storm brought about by the wicked, Xirow. After Xirow brings down an enchanted meteor, this party of five is unknowingly thrust into a universal battle of forces beyond their wildest dreams and become the Dragolitha. What follows is a journey of training, battles with mythical creatures, friendship, betrayal and love.
I enjoyed this story but wish it had more character building and story development. It bounced around a little bit but was entertaining. I'm interested to see what happens in the next book.
Book 2- The Odyssey of The Dragolitha: Essence Within
I enjoyed this follow up story of the Dragolitha as they lose Incindia and their journey to bring her back into their fold begins. They soon discover that she has risen and are eager to seek her out. Traveling across both space and time, they encounter even more obstacles, many creatures- including a demon shape-shifting goat- among other mythical beasts, and the wrath of Incidia herself and find love along the way. Xirow still plots to overtake the world as well as Ramathule and new characters emerge including the birth of a new half dragon. There was more character development in this book as we learn more about each of their stories and the action-filled battle scenes and journey were engaging.
If you enjoy fantasy, dragons, Asian culture, action and anime, this book is right up your alley.
