    2. From ISawLightningFallNew weird writer China Mieville has gained fame not only for his surreal stories, but for calling the inimitable J.R.R Tolkien the wen on the arse of fantasy literature Not exactly a charitable statement But while most of Mieville s attacks could be attributed to differences in personal preference or philosophical conviction one could answer condemnations of John Ronald Reuel s cod Wagnerian pomposity, his boys own adventure glorying in war, his small minded and reactionary [...]

    3. What It s AboutIn the distant future, a race of intelligent dragons dominates the Earth They have subjugated humanity as slaves and pets, disdaining them as inferior beings Bant Bitterwood is one of those subjugated humans, but when dragons kill his family and burn his hometown, he dedicates the rest of his life to killing as many dragons as he can He kills so many that he becomes a folk hero to the humans and a terrifying legend among the dragons When Bitterwood kills the dragon king s favorite [...]

    4. Bitterwood was a fun surprise In my endless quest to find books to read at night when my husband is at work , in my parked car waiting for my oldest to get out of school and of course the endless waiting in the accurately named waiting rooms I sometimes take a leap of faith and try new stuff from lists This book came from a list of authors who attended Orson Scott Card s Literary Boot Camp hatrack I didn t realize that Bitterwood was about dragons until I went to order it from my library I almo [...]

    5. A great read where dragons rule the world in a reversal of fortune, seems humans had created them for fun, to hunt them down as prey, then they gave them intelligence so they would make the hunt challenging but these took over and now humans were the slaves and remebered nothing of the time when they were in fact rulers and intelligent however some dragons had sympathy for some humans they formed bonds with, like jandra and pet whilst bitterwood bant was an avowed dragonslayer and when they all [...]

    6. This book sounded like it was going to be a Robin Hood style dragon slayer story, and I thought Oh, cool Unfortunately, it was just plain weird While our main character, Bant Bitterwood, does indeed have a bow and arrows with which he slays dragons, any interest factor stops there The rest is pointless The dragons themselves seem like dinosaurs, or just really large iguannas There s this prophet to be said on that, but it would definitely be a spoiler who spouts out scripture but refuses to he [...]

    7. Wow i just finished rereading this book and i have to say it is still one of my favorites James Maxey did an amazing job creating characters and world building Worth a read if you like fantasy and sci fi.

    8. Hin und wieder verschmelzen Fantasy und Science Fiction, was die spannendsten Mischungen ergeben kann Auch James Maxey hat sich daran versucht Bitterholz ist der Auftakt der Herrschaft der Drachen Reihe, die die Geschichte des Drachent ters Bitterholz erz hlt.Schon vor langer Zeit haben sich die Drachen als Herrscher ber die Menschen aufgeschwungen und haben sie versklavt, um f r ihre Tyrannen zu arbeiten Doch nicht jeder hat den Kampf aufgegeben Bitterholz ist ein legend rer Drachent ter, doch [...]

    9. As is the case with most things in life, it s the oddball that captures our attention Whether it is the sheep in a pack of wolves or the cactus amidst tulips, our attention will be aimed towards that what doesn t seem to belong When it comes to books, it s not that different Not me for, at least When I come across a book with quite a different premise in comparison to what I m used to, I m tempted to give it a try A good example of this is James Maxey s Bitterwood, cause its premise is quite pec [...]

    10. This book was my first foray into the world of pure fantasy since Lord of the Rings So I have no idea how well this guy did sticking to or breaking from conventions within the genre All I know is that it was a mesmerizing story Taking place on Earth in the far future, dragons have become the dominant lifeform on the planet and have all but enslaved the human race One man, Bant Bitterwood has made it his life s mission to kill as many dragons as possible But after he kills the king s son, an orde [...]

    11. Would you consider the audio edition of Bitterwood to be better than the print version I have enjoyed both the print and audio versions of Bitterwood I would gladly experience either, but audio books are so convenient and bring the action to life.What other book might you compare Bitterwood to and why I got back into epic fantasy with James Maxey s Bitterwood, Storm Front by Jim Butcher and Elantris by Brandon Sanderson I enjoyed each of them, but just comparing each volume on it s own bitterwoo [...]

    12. James Maxey spins a wonderful tale This second of the Bitterwood trilogy picks up where the first left off, and takes on a non stop ride The main characters from Bitterwood continue their stories, well, some of them, and we are introduced to new and compelling characters Some of them could go on to spin off their own trilogies how about it James The blending of dragons as equals or are they superior to humans, hmmm , and earth as an alien world, and technology is reminiscent of Anne McCaffrey s [...]

    13. Delightfully odd I appreciated the scientific backdrop because I m a huge nerd The heroine annoyed the crap out of me as did her pretty boy sidekick, but I enjoyed Bant Bitterwood who incidentally experienced the most development The action was fairly well written, who doesn t love dragons There was only the occasional line that made me cringe For the cost of free, this book was great Just picked up the next book because I want to to find out what happens next which is a rarity.

    14. This is the complete review as it appears at my blog dedicated to reading, writing no rithmatic , movies, TV Blog reviews often contain links which are not reproduced here, nor will updates or modifications to the blog review be replicated here Graphic and children s reviews on the blog typically feature two or three images from the book s interior, which are not reproduced here.Note that I don t really do stars To me a book is either worth reading or it isn t I can t rate it three fifths worth [...]

    15. Eh The main hero is too whiney and doesn t feel like a hero Some of the characters are likeable, I just had a really hard time liking Bitterwood It felt the book also got pretty preachy A lot of talk of God and even throwing Atlantis in there Will I read the next book Maybe if I am bored and have nothing else to read I was right in the edge of a one star and two star rating for this book.

    16. I was so glad that some chapters gave us an insight into Bitterwood s life they gave us vital information and developed his character well Enjoyed the tale of the dragons and how they came to be ,as there was no time references began to suspect early on there was to the plot Will definitely read in the series.

    17. A fun read with intelligent dragons who rule the earth and humans humanity on the verge of being killed off Enter an unlikely hero or three who set the stage for a new order Two books in the series.

    18. Awesome read Great book A little reminiscent of an Anne McCaffrey Pern novel I d explain that if I could but it would be a total spoiler if I did I thoroughly enjoyed the story I will definitely be getting the rest of the series.

    19. Distopian future taleDragons, ox dogs, humans, machines and immortals Not the best, yet not the worst written book Maybe, I will read the net in the series.

    20. 2 starBlah I forced myself through it It improved a little from the beginning, but it is just sloppy and a lot of cardboard characters.

    21. At first I didn t think I d like the book I was getting confused with all the names Anyone who could write this, in my opinion, has to be a genius Not too happy with the wizard dying but glad he and Jandra each let the other know their true feelings As for Pet, guess he matured a lot Amazing book.

    22. I was going to wait to write this review until I finished the second book in the series, but the list of to reads is piling up and James next book is slipping down in the pile not because I don t want to read it but because of gifts I ve received lately that I feel obligated to read so those people know how awesome they are for getting a book for me thanks JoDee and Judy it s always important to keep family happy.Anyway, I do want to review this GREAT book It was a fun read, and a quick one I ve [...]

    23. I already read the trilogy once or twice and was surprised that I wasn t able to remember anything of the plot Must have been quite a long time ago Now I read the first one again, thinking yay, another great fantasy novel However, this isn t the kind of fantasy I thought it would be, because it is actually science fiction with fantasy elements But it feels like fantasy with some scifi elements, so don t worry, fantasy fans The setting of the story is our earth view spoiler I think it s Georgia [...]

    24. Is this a book about a vengeful human fighting dragon tyranny or a rebel dragon wizard his human prot g fighting a mad king Personally, I feel it s the latter Although the story starts out with the titular Bitterwood as a teenager, after the first chapter we see little of him until 1 3 of the way into the book Bitterwood is just a shadowy figure throughout most of the book Even after he s reintroduced, his character sees very little development most of the story seems to center on the dragon wiz [...]

    25. This book can be compared with fellow Solaris author, Gail Z Martin.The writing for both books is nothing otherworldly, none of the characters shine out to me, its hard to care and some of the character s action make no sense Although the novel focuses on Bitterwood among others, Dragons are the main narrators, from the wizard dragon Vendevorex to the insane king Albekizan and his even brother, Blasphet Unlike the Bland Summoner by Martin, Bitterwood has a unique concept, that Dragons are like [...]

    26. I loooooved this book The dragons are deeply portrayed and both human and dragon characters are realistic and likeable or not Great story, incredible setting and background, lots of suspense From Publisher s Weekly In the distant future year 1070 of the Dragon Age, to be exact Earth has been commandeered by dragons, who subject their human inferiors to lives of misery and squalor, either as slaves or pets Human Bant Bitterwood, consumed with thoughts of vengeance against the dragons he believes [...]

    27. I gave this book 3 stars for several reasons Overall, it was engaging and it was a great spin on the world The relationship between dragons and humans and how what we do in one instant might affect our lives later were both areas that were well played However, I was a bit depressed by how, human, the humans acted, how human many of the dragons acted, and how characters floated in, got comfy and were then butchered off With the pov hopping about from one character who might suddenly and randomly [...]

    28. What a captivating book Really had me engrossed Loved the writing although the violence and gore was excessive in places Can t wait to read the next book in the series.

    29. I liked this one I didn t really know what to expect when I started it Dragons ruling the world and humans as their slaves and pets One man standing against an empire I feel the author should have given description in the way the dragons looked and moved I had a hard time visualizing it in my head, the majority of them looked like the guardians of Wyrmrest Temple from World of Warcraft As the beginning of a trilogy, it was pretty good We are introduced to some great characters, and I m hoping t [...]
