Amazing Stories has posted a review of my novel Dragoncharm, recently reissued as a special edition ebook.
As well as sharing some insightful thoughts on the challenges of writing from the point of view of non-human characters, reviewer Ira Nayman also has some nice things to say about the book:
Edwards’ masterstroke is showing how both sides succumb to charismatic, demagogic leaders who set them down the path to war. The charmed are led by a dragon whose lust for power over others is palpable, while the natural are led by a dragon whose sanity is questionable … Dragoncharm is at its most insightful when it portrays the ways such leaders play upon the ignorance and fear of the populations they lead … If read as a fable rather than a work of epic fantasy, Dragoncharm succeeds brilliantly.

Lovely to see this is now available to read as a ebook! Just curious if the sequels will be also released as ebooks?
It’s a huge task to republish the old novels as ebooks. I don’t have plans currently to do the same with the other dragon books, nor the Stone trilogy. But never say never!
Never say never indeed … since making my earlier comment, I’ve republished the entire Stone trilogy in paperback and for Kindle, also “Dragoncharm” and “Dragonstorm,” with “Dragonflame” following close behind.
Yes, thank you again 🙂
Do you think you will carry on with the new dragon trilogy books in the near future?
If you mean sequels to “The Dragons of Bloodrock,” I hope they will happen eventually. But I have a heap of other things on my wishlist to get through first!
Thank you so much for your reply! I’m glad to hear it’s not a definite no and can’t imagine how hard or time consuming it is to do. The second book was my favourite of the three and as a whole one of my overall favourite ever fantasy series!
