"I didn't come here to sell my soul. I came here to buy it back."
Once dubbed "The Deadliest Man Alive," Jarrod Torrealday is a former Olympic saber hopeful and medieval weapons expert banned from competition for killing another fencer in a duel. He now scrapes by as a stuntman and technical consultant for low-budget fantasy films.
A young sorcerer from another world offers Jarrod the gig of a lifetime: adviser to the war council of a magical realm teetering on the edge of collapse, with a foreign army massing just beyond its borders.
Swept into a treacherous and deadly world of intrigue and conspiracy, Jarrod soon learns that the enemy mastermind is also from Earth, and has laid the foundations for a new kind of war.
Dragon’s Trail is an epic fantasy thriller currently available through Kindle Unlimited and available for review and comment on Goodreads.
Fantasy is a hard genre for me to read. I want to love it much more than I usually end up doing. But, color me impressed with Dragon's Trail. Maybe it was the modern mixed with the fantasy, but I was drawn in and held captive until the last page.
Main character Jarrod is awesome. He is everything I need the main guy to be; witty, tough, and fearless. His right-hand man Carter was an excellent addition to this tale. Together they are offered a strange but grand opportunity to battle an evil sorcerer. In the interim, they meet elves and gorgeous fairies and learn the ins and outs of this fantastical world.
Fantasy readers, check this one out! It's action-packed and fun - 5 stars!
