The Royal Dragoneers Review







The Royal Dragoneers

(Book One of the Dragoneers Saga)

 by M.R. Mathias

The Royal Dragoneers was deemed one of the top indie fantasy releases of 2010 by Fantasy Book Critic, and was listed in the first ever Publishers Weekly Indie Select issue in Dec. 2010. It was also nominated for The Locus Poll 2011. This 115k word dragon-fantasy is the first full length installment of The Dragoneers Saga. The novella-length primer, The First Dragoneer, also by M. R. Mathias, is available FREE in the Amazon Kindle Store, for a limited time. 

After struggling for more than two centuries to tame the inhospitable islands where they washed up, the descendants of the survivors of a lost passenger ship are now striving to tame a more substantial "Mainland" they have found.


For as long as mankind has been stranded, dragons have been their sworn enemies.

But no longer...

Sixteen year-old Jenka De Swasso wants nothing more than to follow in his father's footsteps and become a King's Ranger. But when he one day finds himself surrounded by vicious trolls, a young pure-blood dragon comes to his rescue and they become bond-mates.

Meanwhile, the goblins have a new king, Gravelbone, and have allied themselves with the tainted "mudged" dragons to drive mankind out of its lands. Setting his sights on a vast manmade wall, Gravelbone and his wicked hell-born Nightshade, seek to poison the entire human kingdom and enslave any survivors.

Jenka and his companion, a druida warrior named Zah, soon realize that they and their bonded dragons are mankind's only hope for survival. Forced to defy their arrogant king's wishes, the pair set out on a desperate quest to stop Gravelbone's forces and save mankind from its terrifying fate.

With action so intense you'll forget to breathe and intrigue around every corner, The Royal Dragoneers is one adventure you cannot miss.

Hold on to your dragon... your journey is about to begin!

***MY HONEST REVIEW OF THE ROYAL DRAGONEERS***

The trollkin were afraid of the humans expanding into their territory, so they banded together to kill and drive out them out. They didn’t realize that the time had come for the few purebred dragons to bond with certain warriors in order to defend the kingdom. What follows is a battle of epic proportions.


Having already read a further book of this series, I was familiar with the main characters. I like that I get to see how the dragoneers first bonded with their respective dragons. I absolutely love the non-stop action of this series. The battles are so intense, and there’s no way to tell who will survive. It keeps my stomach tied in a knot until the ending.

Near Somewhere Review

Near Somewhere

By Edward Cozza

Connection. Townes Mantle has hit the wall in his life and he doesn't really feel a connection with anyone. He has his dog, and he has his band partner Zeeder. but he needs more, and now his life of endless travel is rapidly making his nerves unravel. He needs someone to share his life with, someone to tell him he is all right, tell him he isn't going to fall apart. He just needs to rearrange, get out the novel he has been writing, and the universe will talk care of the rest. That is when three women enter his life and his complications take on an entirely different tone. With the return of characters(from previous novel Nowhere Yet), Annie and Kat, who both take a liking to Townes, but are themselves struggling with their own internal forces. Add to the mix: a despicable person from Annie's past that won't go away. Towne's closest friend Zeeder, with seemingly no traceable past. A famous actress with a mystical sense. A high spirited wine maker, and the connections begin in ernest, but not without complication. Trouble lurks within the man from Annie's past and his unscrupulous cohorts, which could prove to be dangerous for anyone near them. Southern California, New York, Dallas and the California Wine country serve as the backdrop for people connecting with each other, and Townes doing everything he can to keep from throwing his briefcase in the river and walking away. With a Foreword by Chef Dean Fearing, Near Somewhere is the second installment of the series by author Edward Cozza, that began with IPPY Gold Medal and 3 Beverly Hills Book Awards winner for his debut novel Nowhere Yet.

***MY HONEST REVIEW OF NEAR SOMEWHERE***

Towne felt like life was passing him by. He had written a book that would hopefully be published, he played various musical gigs with his best friend, and he did consulting that took him from California to New York. So what was the problem? He was ready to share his experiences and settle down with someone. At that point, not one, but three women walk into his life. Could it get any more complicating?


This story was a bit puzzling to me. I kept getting the feeling that Towne was going to wake up and find out that it was all a story in his book, or that he was being treated as an alcoholic who had lost it. I really wasn’t sure that everything was on the up and up. And I’m not sure if the author meant the plot to read that way or not. Otherwise, the story was enjoyable to me. I liked the character camaraderie. I just wish that there had been more closure to some parts of the story.

About the Author

Edward Cozza
Ed takes great care and pride in living a tapestry of experience. In his youth, Ed lived the exhilarating richness of Colorado, the sultry tropical allure of Florida, and now in his second young life in postcard-perfect Southern California. He calls a drive by the Pacific a "Chamber of Commerce" day and his every stay at Ritz-Carlton a venerable experience. He's now been tramping in all but eight of the fifty states and almost all of the Major League ballparks. He left the business-to-business corporate world a while ago; when he settled in Southern Cali, he decided to finally meet the voices in his head that followed him from cityscape to rural burg.
