SOME DREAMS ARE MEANT TO DIE.
An engineer craving to become a warrior. A majyu with his future bound in filial piety… and a dark sorcerer who steals women into the night.
Genshu Hidekazu and Masanori swore their lives to defend, giving up their family’s warrior legacy as their parents did before them. Hidekazu is the family’s dutiful scion, preparing to take his father’s place, and Masanori studies as a ki-engineer, carving himself a future in a world that looks down on those unable to access the Goddess’ power: ki.
Yet when a dark sorcerer kidnaps their best friend, and they learn she is only one of many, they refuse to let their parents’ way of life stop them from doing what’s right.
Hidekazu and Masanori must learn to fight, even if it means betraying their parents’ ideals. Otherwise, the good they swore to protect will fall beneath the fist of darkness, their friends with it.
Masa and Hide’s journey begins in Spirit of the Dragon, the first of four novellas prefacing the Wyvern Wars series: an epic fantasy adventure inspired by selections of Japanese mythology and folklore.

A Good Start
What’s not to love? Japanese culture, magic, yōkai, and an interesting villain. A very good beginning to world building for a novella which it sounds like part 2 will expand on. The reason I gave it a four instead of a five is because of the characters. The characters felt a little flat and wooden. While they grew stronger physically, they didn’t grow as a character overall. While it is hinted at in the dialogue, it is not really shown.
