What series did you play out of order? Let us know in the comments below. Technically I played Call of Duty 4 before all the others, which naturally didn't affect my enjoyment, given there's no thread between the stories except that they feature a man with a mustache called Captain Price.

What Modern Warfare did do, though, is send me back to play Call of Duty 2, which has a phenomenal campaign. That came out when I didn't own any decent gaming hardware, so I was pleased to get the opportunity. I'll also take any opportunity to skip a non-essential Assassin's Creed game. I didn't complete a single one between Assassin's Creed 3 and Origins, but that didn't bother me at all. Do they have an interconnecting story? But ultimately it's the individual assassins that help make those adventures engaging. I had never played a Metal Gear game before the Phantom Pain, but it got some great reviews and so I figured it should be fun.

The short review Dual POV stories always intrigue me. Char and Niell made Dragon God really enjoyable because I liked them as people. They felt really authentic to their back history which worked really well to inform who they were and how they reacted to being drafted into the Draconis Order.
This added to the fact, I love dragons. I especially love dragon books about raising a dragon. Dragon God had a little dragon raising and I loved all these moments with Char. I even liked it when Niell became involved too. There was also a TON of politics. Well at least there was a lot of setup for politics.
Many characters were introduced and villains were setup to use politics with these Draconic monks. Nothing really came of these politics except for a battle that didn't need all of this political setup. This formed the bulk of Niell's POV and it was rather boring in places. At other moments everything felt quite rushed and easy, much like a middle grade book is at times. So we end up with an adult framed story and a middle grade read, it will throw some readers off, even though it has potential.
The next book will really be the gauge because if the author does some plotting with all of this setup the following books will make for a depthful read! Ava Richardson knows what she is doing when it comes to cover design.

I was totally drawn to Dragon God because of the art. And happily so My only problem with it is that the setting in the cover seems off. I know there was a large cavern that the red dragon lived in but it was under a waterfall. And the kind dragon lived in one under ground but the red dragon wasn't there Most of the time dragons are portrayed as one of two ways Friends and companions to humans or monsters who humans must fight. This world bridges both of those dragon tropes and positions dragons are more human than creature, being both good and bad.
It's an intriguing idea! This world certainly hearkens back to the traditional old world style fantasy with castles, swords and war mongering. It also incorporates the magic and dark sorcery that is so popular in fantasy right now. While this isn't totally fresh it's setup in a way that takes on a personality of its own. Right now we get a ton of introductions with a bunch of political vignettes. I feel like all of these secondary characters have great potential to add to the dragon rider story. Sure it isn't quite achieved in Dragon God but the setup is in place to take us places!
As a Writer Many readers and thus writers misunderstand the purpose of a multiple POV story. It's meant to showcase aspects of the world that you wouldn't naturally see from a single POV.

You should have complete story and character arcs from each of the POVs. Simpler arcs or well known trope arcs are perfect for one or the other POVs as they are don't need as much development.
Thus the world building can be concentrated on with that POV. It's a great way to give depth to a story without overloading one character. Char was all about this red dragon and I was really interested in what would happen with her. Niell's story was really lacking in plot, a lot of time spent telling us about the world and agonizing about his role at the order. He had a large role to play in the end with Char but I wish that he had more of his own events.
There were plenty of characters and there could have been a whole lot more intrigue and plotting between the different political parties. Dragon God is a solid start to a middle grade transitioning into YA story that has the potential for unusual depth and breathe to the story. The dragons are truly a superior aspect and well worth revisiting the medieval setting of the story. Char and Niell are dragon riders to watch! It has not influenced my opinions.

Apr 26, Tasha and Megan Mahoney rated it really liked it Shelves: audio-book , supernatural , fantasy , dragon. I really liked this book. The beginning threw me off a bit due to the fact that a lot of fantasy-esque terms were used that hadn't been introduced or explained, however they come into play further within the book. I'm not all too familiar with the fantasy genre other than Lord of the Rings, so I didn't know quite what I was in for with this book but given that I really enjoy Dragonheart I was interested in what this book had to offer.
I won't go too much into detail as I don't want to spoil this I really liked this book.
I won't go too much into detail as I don't want to spoil this book, but it has some really tense and thrilling chapters! Once I had moved past my initial confusion which if you've read my other reviews I'm quite good at being confused by things the book really began to draw me in. Whilst Neil Torvald is the adventurous and somewhat stubbornly loyal protagonist type, I was amazed to find that he wasn't written to be some stereotypical good-at-everything-he-does leading role!
Don't be put off by this concept though - I found that it added more depth to the character, showing us the hardships and accomplishments that went along with all of the difficulties in learning new skills. It also paved the road to introducing new characters, instead of slotting them into the immediate role of sidekick.
The pacing of the book is easy to keep up with, I didn't find myself getting bored at any point and I could easily see this as a story that would become a film.

The introduction of dragons happens in two different contexts, one being personal introduction and another being scholarly. I came to really enjoy the narration!
Tiffany Williams narrates each character incredibly well, reflecting the personalities into her voice. Each characters voice was significantly different and it was easy to distinguish which character was speaking without context clues. Williams mirrored the suspense of the story itself in her voice which added a really impressive atmosphere to the audiobook. I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Ava Richardson. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
