I have read other work by Rob May, but this is my favourite.

If you enjoy a mix of strong characters navigating through fantastic thrills and adventures, then this is worth a shot. Oh, and dragons, I mustn't forget the dragons.

Have just finished reading Rob May's story Dragon Killer - a truly high-calibre work of fantasy fiction. The timing and plotting is exquisite, it's fast-paced, elegantly written, great characters and a story which constantly leaves you wanting more!

One of my favorite things about this book is how, despite its terse page count, it doesn’t feel like a novella, but like a full length novel. The writer has a fabulous ability to cram a ton of story and character development into a very small page count. Speaking as a professional writer myself, I can tell you, that’s no easy thing to do. Rob’s prose sparkles on many levels, not the least of which is the copy-editing. I have an eye for catching typos and awkward phrases, and it’s not unusual for me to find these even in published books from major publishing houses, far less self-published books, which are often far guiltier violators. It’s a tribute to Rob’s commitment to excellence that this is one of the cleanest published manuscripts I’ve ever read. To give you another idea of this guy's perfectionism, he even periodically updates his book covers as if he can't leave well enough alone!

But on to the stuff that really matters. For those of you who enjoy books with strong, compelling female leads, look no further. For a guy, this author does “chick lit” (a bona fide wattpad genre in case you were interested) like nobody’s business. His hero, Kal Moonheart, is warm, likable, and just sheer fun, with an appetite for danger and a fearlessness and disrespect for authority that you know is going to get her into trouble in short order that will be next to impossible for her to extract herself from. But her character traits do lend themselves to a nail-biting collection of cliff hangers.

The one thing that took me a while to adjust to was that Rob isn’t one for using period-appropriate language.

This series had me hooked from the first couple pages. Kalina Moonheart's character, to me, represents the emmerging strength and also recognition of the Amzing angle that having a female heroine (who's not damaged goods or revenge-intent like usual) who uses the full range of gender lens to see the fantasy world where she struggles.

This book, as well as Roll the Bones, the sequel, is what you always hope for when you go to the Boo Store, or browse online, check out the bins at Walmart; you know, you are out there just ready to pick up something and just once in a while it turns out to be an amazing story by a great storyteller. This book, for most fans of Adventure / Thriller / Fantasy / Sci-Fi, is one of those times where you hit the jackpot. It only happened to me a few times before, when I bought Belgarath the Sorcerer and then got into the Eddings Series backwards, and when I picked up Sword in the Storm, my first Gemmell. Well, in this fast-evolving, fan-driven genre, we have seen growth like in no other; and this story / series represents the cutting edge of approachable, accessible fantasy stories.

The author is obviously in love with his main character, as you will be when you read this book. She's a 21st century kinda gal in fantasy land. She kicks ass and she gets fooled in love and life. She's imperfect, but in her imperfection's she shines like a beacon of the new modern woman; She makes her own choices, based on what is truly the right thing, not the sort of good / evil axis we have seen for a century in this genre. Rob May writes in an unabashedly honest way, and we see his world through eyes that have a lot going on behind them.

Do yourself a favour and meet this engaging author; and don't even try not to fall in love with Kalina Moonheart, whoever you are.

I came at this book from outside the fantasy genre; it's not something I would usually read and there is a lot of material out there, so it's always been daunting about what to choose.

I found Dragon Killer to be a wonderful read from start to finish and completed it in a couple of sittings. The main character, Kal, is a strong female lead and yet still fallible. I enjoyed following Kal as she developed throughout the book, and thought the frequent switch between present and past was handled deftly by the author.

Rob May must really be commended for creating such an interesting and extensive fantasy world, even creating a map to pinpoint the various scenes of action. I felt as though I knew about about the various places such as Amaranthium without being overloaded with information.

Rob's ability to write succinctly and with clarity kept me interested in the story and invested in the characters. There were points when I felt genuinely moved by Kal's plight. I am interested to read the next instalments.

I can't critique this book from a fantasy perspective as I don't know the genre that well. Above all, this is a great story that takes the reader on a fast-paced journey.
