‘THE DRAGONDAIN’ by RICHARD DUE

My teaser lines are taken roughly from the 50% marker of my Kindle download.

So as not to show any spoilers I have not included a synopsis, however, if you want to find out more about the story, just click on the book image.

If you don’t really want to read any major spoilers, then you can tease yourself a little more, by reading the first few lines of the story … here.

But a small group of Dragondain, realizing the danger, had positioned themselves on the southern slopes, where a great number of people had been trapped.

Illume appeared and held the Gate of Olamar while the Dragondain emptied the streets and buildings, getting the townspeople behind the safety of Perianth’s walls.

As this was an author  invitation to read and review, a Kindle download of ‘The Dragondain’, was sent to me free of charge by Richard Due, in return for an honest and unbiased opinion.

This will in no way influence any comments I may express about the book, in any blog article I may post. Any thoughts or comments are my own personal opinion and I am in no way being monetarily compensated for this, or any other article.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.

    • Hi Naida,

      As it stands in the saga right now, the Dragondain certainly appear like the good guys, however there are many more adventures to come before the children’s mission to find their missing Uncle is finished, so who knows which other worlds are out there to be visited, with new heroes to find??

      Thanks for the comments, always appreciated!

    • Hi Vonnie,

      Dain is a planet in ‘The Moon Realm’ and yes, there are dragons in this second adventure and not very nice ones to boot, although there are a myriad other characters involved in the saga, many good and others definitely not!!

      Thanks for stopping by and for your valued comments.

    • Hi Danica,

      Thank you for stopping by today and taking the time to leave a comment. It is always good to ‘meet’ new people and I value your time and opinions.

      I wonder if you have also read and reviewed the first book in the series, ‘The Moon Coin’, it really does help give an insight into the ongoing thread of the storyline, if you have.

      Richard is definitely stepping up the sense of mystery and intrigue in this second book of adventures.

      I hope that you enjoy the book, when it reaches the top of your review pile.

    • Hi Danika,

      Hold that last thought, I just found the link to your great review of ‘The Moon Coin’, so you will already know the background before you start reading ‘The Dragondain’

      Enjoy!

    • Hi Laurel-Rain,

      Dain is home to the Dragondain, lunamancers, who can create ‘peerins’, which they use to manipulate the magic below the surface of reality. Unfortunately, the dragons they once loved, have turned against them and a chain of events is in motion, which threatens the very ‘Moon Realm’ itself.

      That probably doesn’t help cure your curiosity very much, you really do need to read the books to appreciate the fantastic adventures which Richard has created, to excite the reader and fuel the imagination.

      Thanks for taking the time to comment, it is always good to have you stop by.

    • Hi Mary Ann,

      The dragondains are having a particularly hard time of things right now, with the threat to their very existence, very real and imminent.

      Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment, it is always appreciated.

    • Hi Melissa,

      First of all, I would like to say thanks for the visit today. It is always good to ‘meet’ new people and your comments are valued and appreciated.

      In both books, we keep having tantalising mention of a character called Wrengfoul, who having already taken over one of ‘The Moon Realm’s’ nine moons, seems hellbent on complete domination of the entire realm, with Dain next on his agenda. Plenty of trouble ahead I fear!!

    • Hi Tracy,

      If you enjoy the occasional fantasy book, then this is sure to be one you would enjoy.

      You really do need to read the series in order, to get fully up to speed with the story and the many characters involved in the adventures.

      I know that Richard is hard at work on the third book, ‘The Murk’, so ‘The Moon Coin’ and ‘Dragondain’ are must reads first.

      Hope that the snow is beginning to thaw where you are, it’s a real mess down here in Somerset!
