5.0 out of 5 stars Trogdor the Burninator Goes Steampunk 6 Nov. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Perhaps it's just me, but James Calbraith's "Year of the Dragon" series seems to get better with each installment. This third volume, in which Bran continues his quest to evade the Crimson Robe and to locate his dragon, delves even deeper into Japanese mythology both real and invented. At the same time, the war in Qin lends an occasional parallel strand to the action, as Bran's schoolchums become embroiled in conflict. There's magic, adventure, battle, humour and not too much kissing. It's great adventure fiction.

The series seems to be growing in confidence as the canvas expands and the cast of colourful characters grows ever longer. In case this is your first trip to Bran's world, however, one word of advice. Go back to The Shadow of Black Wings and start from there - you may well find yourself confused otherwise!

5.0 out of 5 stars Third book in the series 12 Nov. 2012
By Pumpdude44 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the third book in the "The Year of the Dragon" series. Again it starts out at a different point from where the second book leaves off but gets back there after the first chapters. The book is action packed with several good combat scenes throughout. Now that I have the glossary of terms and titles I can much better decipher the finer points which had been confusing to me, a non-Japanese, English only reader before. I look forward to the fourth book in the series which will hopefully be coming to Amazon Kindle soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book: (The Islands in the Mist) is a great book 15 May 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I got the first book free for my kindle app and I liked how James Calbraith writes so much I got the whole set. I highly recomand them. Starting with: #1.The Shadow of Black Wings, #2.The Warriors Soul, #3.The Islands in the Mist, #4: The Rising Tide. These books have action, romance, magic and lots of suspense. I stayed glued to my tablet till 3am every night and most of the day. I just couldn't put them down. I hope the author adds another book to the set.
