Realm of Dragons by Morgan Rice

Do you like mediaeval-esque kingdoms, sorcerers, dragons, and a varied assortment of intriguing characters?  Morgan Rice’s Realm of Dragons is the first installment in a series that is likely to become a sprawling fantasy epic. The book drops in on an attention-grabbing scene sure to immediately hook fantasy lovers and closes ramping up to more than one looming threat, discoveries of unexpected destiny, and the uncertainty of many fates.

Overall, this novel feels like a very classic high fantasy, and my main complaint of it would be that there are a lot of characters crammed into one book. I would not say that they are necessarily difficult to keep track of, but this did leave less room for character development. It is clear, however, that there are certain characters who will be sure to take the lead in future novels.

Having listened to the audiobook, I would also like to give acknowledgement to the narrator, Kevin Green. He did an excellent job setting the tone and bringing the novel to life with his wide array of accents and cadence.

As far as high fantasy novels are concerned, this one is on the short side, so if you are left annoyed by the cliffhanger, both the first and second book are available on Hoopla Digital in audiobook format.

Check out Age of Sorcerers # 1: Realm of Dragons.
If you liked that one, check out Age of Sorcerers # 2:  Throne of Dragons.
