Following a recap of the sword of heavens series to
date Writer Tuttle’s fertile imagination again drives him forward. Dragons’
Onyx is filled many of the richly drawn series characters we have
come to enjoy. Dialog is fraught with excitement. Settings rich in
detail as Tuttle has filled his previous works continue in this gripping
narrative. Powerful motivations, twists of story line, abundant conflict
all are presented with the same enthusiasm, fervor of setting and page
turning fast paced drama found in the previous offerings crafted by this
talented author. Dragons’ Onyx brings the reader further into a
land where craftiness and magic rule. We are again treated to an abiding
story peopled with characters who only improve with each new offering.
Victors grow more daring. Scoundrels are more unscrupulous as they
realize power is slipping away from them. The young and intrepid
continue aging, and still have not lost exuberance or vitality.
Dragons’ Onyx continues Tuttle’s fervid
passion for the genre. Powerful motivations, cleverly interwoven plot,
profusely drawn settings filled with incertitude are all part of what we
have come to expect from this quick-witted writer. The reader is drawn
straight into the ongoing tale from the opening paragraph of this
installment when we read of Lattimer and his realization that something
has happened in the magic fold of the world and is carried along on
through the exhilarative struggle waged by Arik and his followers.
Reader interest is maintained right down to the last paragraphs when
Wyka praises Arik for accomplishing what he must.
Excellent addition to the home library for the
fantasy enthusiast. Happy to recommend.
