A Journey of Dragons by Scott Robert Ladd
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A Journey of Dragons is set in a place called Syraqua, where dragons rule and humans are all but extinct, save for a few scattered around the globe. This is an exciting, in-depth story, the descriptions have your mind wandering off imagining these creatures, and places, the Author draws you into the story with his skill, I loved the descriptions used like "skies turned blood-red and winds laden with sulfur and smoke". As soon as I reached that part early on in the book I knew I was hooked.
There are many creatures in this story, like dwarves, highly intelligent reptiles, the humans have tried and failed in the past to return to rule but always failed. This time, they seek the help of the Dragon but can the dragon forget the ancient wrong done to him, can he forget?
Kaylen, a human finds himself washed ashore after his boat sinks and everyone is lost, he survives and wonders why. Symurallix the dragon rescues him from an attack by another beast and takes him to his dragon castle. Although the dragon is still bitter from past events it is curious about Kaylen - can the dragon help the Kaylen? you have to read the story yourself to find out.
The story is truly delightful, it is gripping and you do get lost in its mystery and it's surroundings.
