Dragonfire, not up to previous standare

Out of the 750 plus pages of this highly awaited pre-buy book by one of my favorite authors about 200 pages could easily have been eliminated. Such descriptions of clothing from Seville Row, wines, sterling silver from god only knows where, and page after page of adjectives that had nothing to do with anything except adding pages to the book! A gilded dresser mirror, detailed description of his smart uniform and so on and so on. I read a lot of a sales pitches for high end on-line purchases. Amazon anyone! Disappointing and very different from all his previous books. I will be careful with his next book and read ALL of the free pages before committing to buying it. I did, however, like the book when Mr Bell stuck to the two stories he was telling.

Great read

This book was a huge improvement over Ted Bell’s last book. Very interesting with a historical theme along with current timeline theme. Both theme lines were interconnected which enhanced my interest.

Well done!

DragonFire is ON FIRE!

Skyrocketing to the top of the best seller list and small wonder, it is the best of Ted Bell’s Alex Hawke series. As a teaser, Ian Fleming makes an appearance as Hawke’s grandfather and Fleming parachute behind German lines to commit horrific acts of sabotage against Hitler and the Nazis. That is just the beginning. Read it at your peril!
