The biggest problem I have w Skylan Ivorson is a sea-raider of the Vindras and eventually becomes the Chief of Chiefs of all Vindras clans, an honor he truly feels he deserves as one who has been blessed by Skoval, the god of war.
The biggest problem I have with this book is that I hate just about every one of the characters, especially the main character, Skylan, which is sad because I really love the characters in their other book series. Skylan is just dumb in my opinion. He's like the big dumb jock that has an inflated ego. And when it comes to women he thinks like a narcissistic sexual predator. For example, he wants this one woman in the book and refuses to see that she doesn't want him.
He convinces himself that she really does want him even though she doesn't and has never given him reason to think that she does. This is the worst character they've written since Mina from the War of Souls. I hated that character so much I wanted her to die a horrible death and that's how I feel about Skylan. This is just one example of why I dislike him, but it was one reason too many. I've heard he improves greatly in the next book, but I just don't care.
I also really hated what was done with another character in the book that started out sympathetic because of her abusive situation, but then she ends up not being so sympathetic and it felt like the book was trying to justify Skylan's awful opinion of her and the way she looks. Also the hairy nipples Sorry but I don't even want to try to explain that. Needless to say I will not be continuing on with this series.

Not that I outright disliked it, per se, it's just that I could never seem to get in more than 15 pages or so in a sitting I liked the world-building, though I thought the conflict with the ogres took too long to finally kick off and then it seemed to go on overlong. Things really picked up after the Vutmana thingy, and I was gratified to see super-bro Skylan humbled and made accountable for his terrible choi Woo hoo, I finally finished this beast!
Things really picked up after the Vutmana thingy, and I was gratified to see super-bro Skylan humbled and made accountable for his terrible choices and behaviour in the finale. I'll also agree that the sudden appearance of a certain character Wulfe! One almost wishes they'd found a way to structure the story to introduce him sooner, rather than later. I'm curious to see what happens in Secret of the Dragon , though with so much else on the reading list and a lot going on it might not be until the new year that I get around to it.
I'll be honest: I would have enjoyed this book a lot more if I actually liked the main character.
But I didn't. My dislike of Skylan coupled with my discomfort of the culture of his people made me feel pretty ambivalent for the majority of the novel. On the other hand, I adored the plot, and loved the blatant rip-off of Norse mythology.
Needless to say, I will be downloading the next book in the series once it comes out in paperback. I'm hoping that, as the series goes on, Skylan will mature great I'll be honest: I'm hoping that, as the series goes on, Skylan will mature greatly and I'll spend less time wanting to strangle him.
I really do have hope for the next books, if only because I'm familiar with these writers from their time writing Dragonlance together. I am way too tired to be writing a review. Feb 07, Mikko Karvonen rated it did not like it Shelves: Far too familiar concept, highly unpleasant main character not that there was much to the other characters either , serious overdose of mostly unnecessary exposition, awkward language, and glaring lack of background research.
Jan 02, Adam Bolander rated it it was ok. Book Review: I could spare that much, even if it turned out not to be that great Bones of the Dragon stars Skylan Ivorson is one of the Vindrassi, a race of sea raiders very similar to the Vikings.
His father, the chief of the Tor Book Review: With it, they can summon the dragon, whose power is great enough to tear creation itself apart. For the half of the book I read, I alternated between two different moods: Yes, I was bored reading this book. This could have turned out to be a really cool book. Instead, Bones of the Dragon is kind of a drag.
It spends way too much time world building, to the point where the authors repeatedly interrupt the plot just to give us mundane details.
That kind of storytelling is unacceptable!
The other emotion, disgust, mostly came from our hero, Skylan. The douche bag who matures becomes a better guy by the end of the book is an old, but still nice, trope for a story to follow. Problem is, we still have to like the douche bag for some reason before that happens.
I found the tone of the book a little confusing as well. Or rather, I felt like the book itself was confused. Some parts of it were typical adventure fantasy with swords and monsters and brave heroes, but other times it felt like Weis and Hickman were trying to turn it into A Song of Ice and Fire.
When some of the characters suddenly began throwing the f-word around, it felt so unnatural and out of place that I had to stop and stare at the page for a few seconds. In the end, Bones of the Dragon is a well written story. I was closed Bones of the Dragon halfway through, disappointed. View 1 comment. Despite my enjoyment of fantasy, I've never read a single DragonLance book, and probably wouldn't have picked this up either, if I hadn't been asked to review it.
It's a fairly interesting start to a new series, but either not terribly well-written, or I'm just way above the target age, because I did find it rather simplistic at times, and during the first half of the book, the main character came across as a gigantic arrogant git. Had it ended there, I would only have given it two stars. It impro Despite my enjoyment of fantasy, I've never read a single DragonLance book, and probably wouldn't have picked this up either, if I hadn't been asked to review it.
It improved in the second half though. Through tragic events Skylan was forced to make difficult decisions and mostly rose to the occasion. Following his growth made the book worth reading, even if nothing else had. Also, I grew to like several of the other characters and found myself interested in their futures - despite my initial reservations.
Had half stars been implemented, I'd have given this 2. As it is, it's closer to a 3 than a 2. Mar 02, Reblua rated it did not like it. Honestly, I did not enjoy this book until the last 25 pages or so. The characters were shallow and I couldn't find myself liking any of them. Dec 20, Cindy rated it liked it Shelves: This is a typical first book of a series. There is a lot of time spent on building the world and cultures of the Vindras.
Weis and Hickman do that we great style as they always do. I was a little disappointed in the characters, it felt as though all the characters were very flat, hopefully as the series grows so will the characters. I do have to say I hated Skylan, he was annoying and really not likeable as a main character. The book really does pick up after a while, the last one forth of it ha This is a typical first book of a series.
The book really does pick up after a while, the last one forth of it had me reading and reading. It was a struggle in the beginning but I did get pulled in and can't wait to see where the series does go from here.
There wasn't much new as far as ideas goes, so I'm hoping that'll be something else that the authors expand on in the future. Dec 02, Luke rated it did not like it Shelves: I kept waiting to discover that some god had once again stolen the world. It felt like a bad mashup of Zelda and Dragonlance. Feb 06, Matthew Holloway rated it liked it. This is the second time that I've read or in this case listened to this book. It has been a few years, but I remember thinking the first time how big of an idiot Skylan was, and this time I feel exactly the same way.

I like the book, and it is very well written, but it's hard to read about a character that is so easily unlikable because of all the horrible decisions they make and don't get me started on the macho rape culture attitude. I look forward to re reading more and hopefully allow This is the second time that I've read or in this case listened to this book. I look forward to re reading more and hopefully allowing Skylan a chance for redemption in the rest of the series. The main character was pretty unlikable and the narrative seemed a bit drawn out.
However, I still found myself wanting to listen to this story. Based on better reviews, I might give the other books in the series a shot. Oct 21, Emilee Powell rated it liked it. I spent half of the book hoping that the main character would die a horrific and horrible death. I cannot remember the last time I have so thoroughly despised a lead character.

Despite of my abiding hatred, the book eventually won me over enough to give it a tentative three stars. However, I am highly motivated to turn it into two stars if the second book is not an improvement. May 29, Rhonda Johnson rated it really liked it. This book would have gotten a five, but at a certain point the author decided to tell rather than show what was happening. But I enjoyed it enough that I'm dying to read the sequel. Oct 13, Ben Lund rated it it was ok.
This book caught my eye as I was wandering through my library. I really liked the Dragonlance books as a young pre-teen. Fantasy wasn't cool yet, and these books were something I hadn't encountered before.
Throughout the years I have caught onto other series by them, the Starshield books, the Deathgate cycle and so on. When I found this book I thought 'why not, I've gone along with them this long.
This allows them to undergo a transformation of character or 'come to a realization' later or throughout the book.
Almost all the characters have that quality, with the exception of maybe two people. I hoped at one time or another, that someone I was reading about would fall off a boat and get eaten by a shark. No one gets eaten by a shark. Also, not a lot happens. Everyone gets on a boat, and you think they are finally going to leave and get on with the story, and they end up coming back home.
Then they have to travel somewhere and you think "NOW there're on their way" and they come back home. When they finally seem like they are getting somewhere The reason it gets two stars is because despite all it's tropes and false starts, at the core is a halfway decent story. You can see where the authors want to get to, it just seems like they took the most meandering, convoluted route to get there.
I probably will pick up the second book at some point to see what happens to everyone, but it's not at the top of my to read list.
A story is there, it's just not meaty enough for me to sink a weekend into. Roman efficace, mais pas de quoi se relever la nuit. D'autant plus que les dieux de son pant Roman efficace, mais pas de quoi se relever la nuit. Jun 10, Alexandra Chauran rated it liked it. I broke a sweat trying to like this book, but by the end it grew on me. The whole first half was painful, however, because all of the characters were utterly unlikeable.
Good world building, but wow, what a pack of jerks who deserve whatever comes to them.
Now, I understand where an author is going when she's setting up a character for redemption, but with absolutely no likeable qualities in any of the characters until a fun new character was introduced half-way through the book Well, if I wa I broke a sweat trying to like this book, but by the end it grew on me.
Well, if I wasn't enjoying the deep baritone of the audiobook narrator I would have quit. After suffering through a great portion of this long book, however, there was enough intrigue and drama to hold my interest. I almost want to know what happens next. I feel like these authors should team up with the author of The Wolves of Ragnarok and together with his character development and these ladies' world-building and mythology development they could knock out an amazing novel.
Jun 01, Marian Willeke rated it really liked it Shelves: This was a book that I decided to read only because it was already on my site from when my husband read it. I'm so glad. I really fell in love with these authors and I'm frustrated to no end that I have to wait for the sequel!
I don't trust writers to finish their works, but I'm hooked to this one. There were epic god-wars and excellent representation of the impact characters made to the world, whether they intended to or not.
I also loved the Norse culture it portrayed. Weis does a great job b This was a book that I decided to read only because it was already on my site from when my husband read it.
Weis does a great job bringing in the different pantheons and cultures in a fantasy setting. At moments I thought it was too obvious, subsequently a bit childish, but then I really enjoyed the ancient European cultures in a fantasy setting.Vance Pumphrey.
They should've told Skylan the truth from the beginning! Amber and Blood. Book 3. I was closed Bones of the Dragon halfway through, disappointed.
Mossad must eliminate the man, but with a spy lurking high in its ranks there is only one option: bring back Slaton. A story is there, it's just not meaty enough for me to sink a weekend into.
The characters were shallow and I couldn't find myself liking any of them.
