Book one in what has to become a trilogy, Katarina the Dragonslayer and the Foebreaker’s Curse brings you an epic fantasy with a Sci-Fi twist. It starts off with: “Somewhere in the Orion constellation a highly advanced race of beings rebelled against their maker. They fled the punishment that they believed was coming, and during their long exile, they flourished. They made many discoveries about their newfound home world, among which was the existence of a sort of magnetic field emanating from their planet’s core, and before long, it powered every aspect of their technology. Certain individuals of specific attunement were also able to receive, focus, and direct this energy. In some worlds, this power was called magic.”
Enter the world of the Pellorean continent Melloren, the Stone Prophets, Elven kingdom, ogres and dragons, a mad scientist and Katarina, learning to defend and attack dragons. Add Elvish tongues to that, a glossary of terms is available in the book’s annex to give you a clue what a scene is all about. If you love epic fantasy like J.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings or C.S. Lewis Narnia Chronicles, you’ll love this series about adventures, heroes, magic, technology, and dragons. Lively dialogues, genuine character development, despite my default uncomfortable feeling in a fantasy setting.
