5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 8 Feb 2011
By Scott L Clark - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Excellent, excellent, excellent. I'm 43 and cut my teeth at the age of 11 on fantasy when I discovered my fathers tolkien collection. Since then I've loved fantasy. These days its hard to find good fantasy writers. I've got countless books on my shelves, I've started reading, but stopped because they couldn't keep my interest. If you're looking for an 800 page book with pages of the author describing what people are wearing, instead of keeping the story moving, this book isn't for you. If you're in the mood for a good old sword and sorcery, along the vein of Robert E. Howard's Conan series or Michael Moorcocks Elric of Melnibone, I highly recomend both books.

The shorter length of these books drives me crazy with anticipation but they are very good and I cannot wait to read the rest and find out what happens.

Was a great book. I read other fantasy but books with sword play and sorcery are my favorite. I can't wait for the next book to come out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just as good as the first 24 Mar 2011
By Richard J. Hansen - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you liked the first Hyborean Dragons novela, you will like this one. If you haven't read the first one, go read it now.

Dragon-Child delivers more of what was good in the first book without simply retreading over the exact same stuff. Where as the first novella told us a lot about Therian, this one delves more into Grum, being told exclusively from a limited third person perspective centered on him. It takes place in new settings and is fairly fast paced - just like it should be. The climax of the story ends up being cool and amusing.

My only complaint would be that up until the end of the story, it feels like not much has happened - or rather, not much had happened in the frame of the larger plot. However, it makes up for this in the end, and the feeling is likely in part, only due to the fact that the next book is not out yet.
