5.0 out of 5 stars Do these reviewers know what they are talking about 19 Feb 2012
By William J. Coburn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Geoffrey Knight writes gay adventure books under his own name and A.J. Ryan. I have noticed a few reviewers have been put off
by the very nature of adventure books. Adventure novels tend to be inherently over the top, and I would not have them any other way. I checked out the reviews by a few of these people like Dotsmate and D. Andrews; they seem to be sour about almost everything.
I would not put much stock in most of these negative reviews. Their authors would be turned off by the Indiana Jones movies, the best of the Star Wars and Star Trek movies, all of the Dirty Harry films, Bullitt and every other action-filled detective movie, including the Donald Strachey mystery movies, like Ice Blues, and the best of those old film serials, like the three Flash Gordon serials. These people would have been annoyed by the Jules Verne books, the early picaresque novels of Dickens, like Martin Chuzzlewit, the Tin Tin books and the recent film The Adventures of Tin Tin, in short, most of those westerns and science fiction movies I grew up on, like Invaders from Mars and High Noon. They ought to be locked in a room with no other reading material but Proust's Remembrance of Things Past and the dreariest novels of Anthony Trollope.
Mr. Knight, ignore them. They are just nattering nabobs of negativism. We need good escapist movies and books. Write some more books that are fun to read. Much of Homer's Odyssey is definitely escapist, and the world would be a lesser place without it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Formulaic, but still worth the read 5 Jan 2012
By Danaidh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The good guys win, and the bad guys die (under the curse of the dragon god). Everyone is beautiful (even the villains)and the sex is fantastic, with everyone but Shane getting laid.

I notice some of the criticisms leveled against the story are about the nature of an action/adventure tale. They're supposed to be high action, and it requires a certain amount of suspension of belief. These are real men who do manly things and push themselves to the limit, enduring great pain. By definition, the incredible is unbelievable. And so it goes for all action/adventure stories.

Rather than blame the genre, I would suggest that the author is just not up to the task. It's the writing that is over-the-top, contrived, and too reliant on deus ex machina solutions.

Still, if you like the genre, and want to read about heroes who get the *guy* in the end, this is the series to read.

I suppose the book is still a stand-alone story if you haven't read the first two books, but there is a lot of backstory the new reader will miss. We do get some clues into the Professor's history and the accident that left him blind, and more about Luca's attempt to find the parent(s) who left him in a nunnery as an infant.

Sam returns, but is still as useless as ever. (And he forgets to deliver a letter.) Quite out of the blue, we find that one of the lead characters has fallen in love with each another lead character. (The only explanation is that one saved the other's life. But that happens all the time among these guys. I think this is a really bad development.)

And, like the previous two books, there is a setup to the next installment.

1.0 out of 5 stars Can you say BEYOND RIDICULOUS???? 21 Dec 2011
By bancito - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have been a huge fan of Geoffrey Knight, especially the 'Fathom's Five' series. However, I must agree with D. Andrew that this was way 'off the charts' as far as believability goes. Usually Mr. Knight's books are an easy and exciting read, but this one was SOOOOO TOTALLY UNBELIEVABLE, that it took me almost a week to finish. I should have given up, but I figured it couldn't get any more absurd than it had already been. Holy cow! Was I wrong!!!! Near the end, when Will and Bradley ground the diamonds into the soles of their shoes and ice skated away (SERIOUSLY??????), that did it. I was done. I didn't care anymore, but finished it just to say I did.
As I said before, I have enjoyed this series, but unless his editor steps in with his VERY BIG red pencil, I won't buy the next book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too much 18 Aug 2011
By Dotsmate - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The action in this book is fast moving and exciting, for a while, but it does not stop. It goes so far over the top that it loses all credibility. The same goes for the sex, which is always amazing. The result is that you soon lose interest because nothing is believable. I became bored by the middle of the book and just gave up.
5.0 out of 5 stars Dragon God! 26 Jun 2014
By Brian James - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I liked this book. Each chapter was full of action and the erotic parts were pretty good too. I've sought out Knight's other books to keep up with the guys and the Professor. So enjoyed the book that I finished the last half in one sitting...
