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 This book: (The Islands in the Mist) is a great book 15 May 2013
By A. MILLER - 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.
