THE DRAGON LORDS: FOOLS GOLD

PrintE-mail Written by Andrew Musk

A new refreshing epic fantasy tale has hit the bookshelves. The first book in The Dragon Lords series, Fools Gold has just been released by debut author Jon Hollins. At first glimpse, this novel seems to be a standard epic fantasy tale involving a heist from a dragon. Although this may sound like The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien, it’s actually a more complicated plot with a more humourous side to the story.

The story takes place in Avarra and is concentrated on the world being ruled by dragons. The Dragons charge taxes to ensure their complete control of the world. However, it becomes clear and quite obvious that a group of misfits will be embarking on an adventure to take control and to obtain their wealth. It may sound like this is a standard epic fantasy story, with the story being heavily focused on action and adventure. However, it is much more than the standard novels released, with a heavy focus on the group setting out to steal back their wealth. The characters are slowly developed throughout the novel, allowing the pacing to be well maintained throughout the 500 plus pages. It also has a humorous side whilst also containing some important life lessons along the way.

There is no denying that this novel sticks to standard epic fantasy cliques, but there is so much added to the novel with the likeable characters and thrilling action that it is easy to forgive. The humorous side to the novel does offer some distinction from other epic fantasy tales and some added twists make it a very enjoyable read. An epic start to a series that will be adored by fantasy lovers.
