Dragon Magic Reviews

  • Killian Louis

    Once again, Megan Derr strikes.

    I absolutely loved this book.

    Which is becoming routine with whatever this author writes.

    I am not obsessed with her books. Not. At. All.

    The dynamic between the four men is absolutely delightful, and all four characters are lovable in completely different ways.

    I have to admit a certain preference for Mazhan and Binni, but then I have a tendency to like stubborn and overtly dramatic Derr characters *cough cough*bitchy rune witches, stewards and wolf-elves*cough cough*

    So four misfits united in a quest to rid an ancient land of a very powerful evil. Expect humour, dramatics, inappropriate use of shadows and mind links, fire swords and a happy ending with a surprising twist.

    Warning: contains high level of sass.

    I have been looking forward to this book since I read the snippet from Ms. Derr's blog. It certainly was an interesting story with interesting flash back and story.

    I do like how the MC, Mahzan, was Jester. I do like how Ms. Derr wrote him and his acts, even if there wasn't much of the acts to be written about before disaster strikes. Cemal was an interesting character. Sule was irritating at time. And Binhadi was kinda typical noble character...

    I kinda thought from the get go that the assumption of who the culprit was, was kinda flimsy and implausible, given the logistic of it.

    I am not sure I bought the turning point in the their relationship though... At least, I didn't notice any hints of attractions from Sule toward the rest of the gang,

    .

    I did enjoy the book for the most part. The magic system was interesting. The history was rich. The ending was... understandably not clean cut. With an interesting thing happen before the final scene.

    It is still an entertaining read. I am not sure if I really like the last act but it was acceptable. If you like Ms. Derr work, you will probably like this one as well.

    This was a good read about four misfits on a quest for justice. They find something priceless along the way but will they embrace their connection or run from it?

    It took me a while to get into this one but once I did, I couldn’t put it down. The bond between the four men was beautiful and their mind link during their sexy times was erotic and intense. All the guys have issues - none of them have

    It took me a while to get into this one but once I did, I couldn’t put it down. The bond between the four men was beautiful and their mind link during their sexy times was erotic and intense. All the guys have issues - none of them have truly been seen or accepted but they see, accept and care for each other like they never have before.

    I really enjoyed this one - it was unique and innovative. The characters were sassy, feisty and funny.

    Not only romance, although elements of it are quite erotic and the menage share an emotional as well as physical connection. The bulk of the story is a suspenseful action/adventure set in a detailed fantasy world.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The beginning started a bit slow for me. Once the story got going, it was very hard to put down. I really liked all the main characters. I think Mahzan and Cemal were my favorites. Sule was very hot headed and the bickering between him and Mahzan got to be very irritating, especially in the beginning of the story. Binhadi was the one that it was hardest to get to know, but once we get insight to his character he became much more sympathetic.

    I really enjoyed the sweeping nature of the story. It takes place over several months. I loved that it took them such a long time to get from place to place. It gave the story a more realistic feel. I’m not sure how I feel about the ending. It left me with a bit of an unfinished feeling which I didn’t like. I am hoping that the author will write more in this world and give a definitive conclusion to this tale.

    All in all, it was highly enjoyable and I highly recommend it, especially if you are a fan of fantasy and Megan Derr in particular.

    I'm not having the easiest time summarizing my feeling about this book, but I'm gonna try and write a review regardless.

    is a book about four men who get thrown together by devastating circumstances and, whether they want to or not, end up having to save their kingdom as a tightly knit group.

    Those four men are Mahzan, the King's Jester, quick witted and with a sharp tongue; Sule, a young commander with a fiery temper; Cemal, a cheerful priest with a bloody past full of revenge, and mysterious and severe Binhadi, one of the king's advisor mages with a dark family history.

    The POVs are alternating mostly between Mahzan, Sule and Cemal with Binhadi's POV only coming very late into the mix. I did not mind those changes and I thought it served the story very well. I did have clear favourites among those four, but I enjoyed reading all of their POVs and all of them were interesting characters in their own right.

    I overall liked their relationshop. There was a heavier focus on Mahzan/Sule and Cemal/Binhadi, though the lines blurr more and more as the plot passes a certain big event. I liked that is was a polyam relationship, and I wish there had been more of a focus of the individual ways they interact, but given the surrounding circumstances I can see how that would have distracted from the plot though.

    Overall the book was easy to read, but there were a few minor editing errors, plot holes and the worldbuilding wasn't always done smoothly. I mostly wasn't confused, but I wish there had been more background information on the magic for example (which is supposed to be rare and partly dangerous, but almost every character in the book is a mage and it's not clear how people learn about their magic) or how far sexism/gender roles go in the culture, or how big the role of the church plays in the kingdom.

    Previously to reading I heard that the ending of the book was "polarizing", and I understand what is meant by that. I was quite afraid that it would be a bad ending - towards the end all seems rather hopeless - and while I wouldn't exactly say that it's a happy ending, it definitely isn't bad either. The style of the epilogue is an interesting choice, and I can see how some people might not like it, but it made the ending better for me personally.

    Despite its flaws, I enjoyed

    quite a lot with its charming characters, interesting magic and very deep personal bonds.

    3.5 stars.

    For the most part I enjoyed this tale of four men and the magic that binds them together, leading to love and adventure and plenty of other things along the way. Mostly because I liked the characters.

    Mahzan is showy and flamboyant and I loved him. He’s argumentative and loves being the centre of attention, but I rarely found him annoying. He helped keep things interesting and his magic definitely made the bond more convenient. Because I liked Mahzan so much, it took me a long time to w

    For the most part I enjoyed this tale of four men and the magic that binds them together, leading to love and adventure and plenty of other things along the way. Mostly because I liked the characters.

    Mahzan is showy and flamboyant and I loved him. He’s argumentative and loves being the centre of attention, but I rarely found him annoying. He helped keep things interesting and his magic definitely made the bond more convenient. Because I liked Mahzan so much, it took me a long time to warm to Sule, the surly soldier. He does have his reasons for being so stoic and grumpy – thanks to his family’s refusal to believe that he is actually a man, despite their transphobic beliefs – but he also has an exceedingly short temper, can be prone to arrogance and often bickers with Mahzan for no apparent reason.

    Cemal, by comparison, is an absolute marshmallow and a sweetheart with a tragic past but a wicked sense of humour. Then there’s Binhadi, the man whose POV we see the least and who has the deepest most complicated secrets. As with Sule, it took me a while to warm to Binhadi, mostly because I was expecting him to spring surprises at any moment.

    The four make for an interesting group, and I enjoyed seeing how their partnership grew over the course of the book. When the romance happened, it felt natural, and I liked seeing how Binhadi especially changed as their bond deepened.

    However, the pacing is a choppy, with a lot of time and distance skipped over, especially towards the end, and the plot veered heavily from the quest to the romance, then back to the quest again as it seemed to remember these four were brought together for a reason. Some of the action scenes were a bit confusing to follow too, while others were quick and rather too convenient. As for the ending – where suddenly we’re thrown into the future to look back at history – that left me feeling really unsatisfied with how things turned out and definitely left me wanting to know more about what really happened to them all.

    So it’s a mixed one. I loved the characters and the idea is great, but the plot didn’t quite hold up all the way through and the ending was rather disappointing. I liked it, but couldn’t quite love it as much as I wanted to.

    I struggled quite a bit with this one. Normally I can fall into the world Megan Derr builds as easily as I fall into bed but not this time.

    While the story was complex and entertaining I felt little chemistry at the beginning. Sule and Mahzan just irritated me with the constant bickering, and Cemal and Binhadi were rather bland in comparison.

    I did warm up to them all towards the end but to be honest I was rather glad to be finished.

    I was also a little disappointed in the ending but that's purel

    I did warm up to them all towards the end but to be honest I was rather glad to be finished.

    I was also a little disappointed in the ending but that's purely my own feelings, I prefer complete HEAs. Also the up to date chapter at the end threw me especially as we went back to the story time line after. It just didn't read smoothly for me.

    So while not one I can see myself re reading, not a fan of polygamy I did end up enjoying the later half of this one.

    Is it just me, or have Megan Derr's books been getting more and more 'out there' with respect to character devices? I'm awaiting the next book, presumably about an asexual intersex dolphin who finds romantic connections with xer demisexual gay-for-you mate along with a pansexual tree. I'll pass on that one, too.
