The fast-paced sequel to There Will be Dragons is a rollicking adventure above and below the high seas with dragons, orcas, beautiful mermaids-and the irrepressible Bast the Wood Elf, a cross between Legolas and Mae West. Duke Edmund Talbot has been assigned a simple mission: Go to the Southern Isles and make contact with the scattered mer-folk-those who, before the worldwide collapse of technology, had altered their bodies in the shape of mythical sea-dwelling creatures. He must convince them to side with the Freedom Coalition in the battles against the fascist dictators of New Destiny. Just a simple diplomatic mission. That requires the service of a dragon-carrier and Lieutenant Herzer Herrick, the most blooded of the Blood Lords. Because New Destiny has plans of its own.… (més)

This continues the fantasy post apocalyptic story from There Will Be Dragons. In the previous novel combat was focused on Roman legion style land warefare.

Now we move to sea.

With a Dragon carrier and mermen.

Still interesting characters in interesting situations. ( )

Herzer and Co go south to some islands to make an alliance with mer-people to take preventative action against Paul's plans to invade across the ocean.
Ok, no more of this series for me. It was a naval story with dragons. And lots of sex, that didn't have anything to do with the story other than to try to spice it up. Bleh. And mer-maid almost rape. By Orcas. Can you say Bestiality? ( )

This series is an imaginative page-turner marred by some not-even-thinly-veiled politics and a weirdly adolescent take on sex. Nevertheless, Ringo has a great grasp on military techniques, culture, and history that makes me forgive him. I still think men would probably enjoy this more than I did, since they wouldn't have to keep overlooking his, I have to say, offensiveness. ( )

This book is really a book (Emerald Sea) and a novella (In a Time of Darkness) both of which follow on from There Will Be Dragons. Emerald Sea is more self-indulgent than the previous book, and isn't as strong as the first. It is still quite readable. In a Time of Darkness has a very awkward set of subject matter (the keeping of a harem girl against her will), which will make many readers uncomfortable, and isn't as strong a story as either of the first two stories in this series.

Herzer, Duke Edmund, Bast, Daneh and Rachel are back and ready roll - literally. On the waves, not wheels. The UFS has a new weapon - dragon carriers - and if all goes well, a new ally against New Destiny. The merfolk who inhabit the coastal waters of Flora are not particularly open to allying themselves with either side, but unlike the UFS, New Destiny comes prepared NOT to take no for an answer.

Not so riddled with typos as There will be dragons, the action is fast enough to keep sleepy eyes reading long past what should be lights out. ( )
