    One thought on “The Dragon Hammer”

    1. I received this book, as well as the Amber Arrow book (both by Tony Daniels, and books 1 and 2 in a series) by Baen publishers who were kind enough to send me ARC review copies. I loved book one, and book two was just as good as book one, though seemed not quite there.  I have never before read Tony Daniels, though I’ve heard a lot of good things from various fantasy fans that his works are fantabulous. The location was a bit weird for me in the books-it mentioned Romania, and Mississippi and [...]

    2. This is an intriguing middle age like romp of a young man coming of age in a peaceful-turned-violent land. Despite the young man’s insecurity, he soon learns others are looking to him for decisions, and he is forced to grow up quickly.The characters in this novel are unique, suspenseful, charming and intense. You can’t help but love them.Wulf’s family and friends depend on him when an unexpected attack renders them hostage. He is not only unsure of his ability to gather the necessary force [...]

    3. I'm not sure how I feel about this book. The characters were ok, and some were even interesting, but something, and I can't pick what that is, just didn't gel for me. It's a story of an heir that is third in line, not expected to inherit, who suddenly finds himself ruling the kingdom of Shenandoah. There is action, magic, beastmen (called Tier), blood sacrifice as a religion, and mind control. Even elves, but the book leaves you with little or no real information about any of this, concentrating [...]

    4. A very good start to a new series. The characters are complex and grounded. The conflict is significant and the start of a much larger affair. The world itself feels large and very diverse.

    5. The story was 5 stars - great action, lots of cool magic and characters.But the writing was pretty bad in places. It desperately needed one more editorial go-through, in my opinion.

    7. This book was hard to read. I was fooled by the cute dude on the cover once again. Simply put, I had no idea what was going on. It’s interesting to be put in media res, but only if it’s done right. Obviously, this book failed. As I was reading, it was only “why, why, why, what, what, what, how,” going through my head. There was quite a sprinkling of info dumping going on to make up for it, but there’s still so many questions left unanswered. Why does Wulf like Saeunn? Why does Ravenell [...]

    8. Tony Daniel has opened up a alt-history fantasy saga set in a America that is populated by Vikings, Skraelings, Romans, Elves, and the Tier. The Tier are people who are men in animal forms. Wulf von Dunstig is the third son of the Duke of Shenandoah, but he is the one that can hear the dragon call. After a prince of Sandhaven is killed by Wulf, Shenandoah is invaded by Sandhaveners controlled by a draugar. Wulf manages to gather the Tier and other forces together to attack the enemy and defeat t [...]

    9. Hmm. Not too sure what to say for this book. It's interesting, that's for sure, with lots of action and excitement. However, I feel that there isn't much hardships experienced by the characters. The plot is also fairly straightforward.
