    One thought on “The Dragon's Path”

    1. First off, I love this freaking cover I liked the book well enough and hope to enjoy the rest of the series even better I have them all but the second book It s on some kind of backorder on Anyway, the book revolves around four characters, but my favorite is Cithrin and then Geder They seemed the most interesting to me I really, really hope to like the rest of the series Mel

    2. The star rating system is vague and imperfect My feelings on this one are somewhere between liked it and really liked it, but I decided to give it four stars because if any author deserves an extra star, it is Daniel Abraham His first published series, The Long Price Quartet, has been named among the best fantasy series of the last decade by just about everyone whose opinion I respect As a reward for his efforts, he was dropped by his publisher You could argue that this is justified, since his b [...]

    3. The Dragon s Path is the first book in a planned 5 book series I found it very similar to ASOIAF in the complexity of it s characters and the scope of the political and military struggles Abraham has worked with GRRM for many years and he s obviously learned a lot in his time getting coffee, helping kill off the Starks and fighting off angry fans who want to know when Winds of Winter will be released This book is told using the same chapter POV style as ASOIAF After reading a lot of books lately [...]

    5. Three and a half stars.I cut my reading teeth on fantasy and science fiction A regular at the local library, I had gone through their SF F offerings by early teens which is how I came to read The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant and relied on my babysitting money and the local Waldenbooks for current fare The scarcity of material meant I re read books I owned many, many times As a result, when I encounter something that feels new in fantasy, that has a fresh take or inspired writing, I tend to gus [...]

    6. I ve been a long time picking up this series the end I didn t pick it up at all it picked ME up and charged through the story with me in tow There are two ways to meet the world You go out with a blade in your hand or else with a purse And this was one of the things I loved about this book It is an example of the fine balance between war and economics.This is character led story telling at its best they change and evolve, grow and transform The world building was fabulous I would love to see the [...]

    7. I guess it s a good sign when you read the first few chapters of a book and start searching google for similar books Man, this book was amazing Less action, but character development, realistic dialogue, unpredictable plot twists and just awesomeness.Geder was my favorite character and i cant wait to see how his story unfolds Vincen Coe was another favorite, a man of few words, usually lets his sword do the talking but his loyalty is what i love most about him.The Dragon s Path has introduced m [...]

    8. OK, so this is a weird book.The fact Martin, GRR is a buddy did not help Because I could not escape the feeling of heavy influence on our present author.It seems Daniel has heard of epic books and that, if you want praise from Martin, should contain dragons, puppet shows, nice clothes, a sense of noble melancholy and pending doom, characters that are gritty and confused and human, and such like.Sounds good.But the execution is, like I mentioned, weird First, there are three or four main characte [...]

    9. 11 4 2014 I didn t go in to this book expecting to be disappointed quite the opposite, in fact It just worked out that way.Firstly, The Dragon s Path is the first in a five book epic fantasy series It s a multiple POV novel, in the style of GRRM, although with only four POV characters instead of who knows how many at this point The four characters are Dawson Kalliam, a noble who gets embroiled in political intrigue of the court Cithrin Belsarcour, a young orphan raised as a ward of a bank, who f [...]

    10. I absolutely loved Daniel Abraham s fantastic Long Price Quartet when I read it a few years ago, so I m quite surprised it s taken me so long to start his other major fantasy series, The Dagger and the Coin, of which this is the first volume.I m happy to say I enjoyed this every bit as much as I did the LPQ books perhaps even a little The world building is superb you really get a sense that this is a fully realised world and that there s so much going on outside the parameters of the story you [...]

    11. I finally finished listening to this one The narrator is fantastic he did a great job with the reading and the voices, which I think for an audio book is key The story is also well done it s an epic fantasy and has a great cast of characters and plot and I was drawn into the world It didn t seem too heavy with the details, but there s lots going on and the pace is brisk If you enjoyed The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss, you like this one as well

    12. Executive Summary An enjoyable start to a fantasy series that seems to focus on politics and the economy than it does on battles and magic.Audio book I initially really struggled with the audio book This wasn t Pete Bradbury s fault Rather there is a lot sort of dumped on you at the beginning and it would have been nice to go back and reread which isn t always possible for me when I m listening.By the second day I had my bearings though, and will continue on with this series in audio moving for [...]

    13. 4.5 StarsWhen it comes to writing modern fantasy it appears that authors need to do one of two things They need to write something unique or edgy, something or a treatment not seen before A prime example being how J.R.R Tolkien took Norse mythology and turned it into his own mythology of the world or how Brandon Sanderson took the idea of the physics based magic system and made it his own The second thing authors can do is to write very, very well the best examples being E.R.R Eddison or Mervyn [...]

    14. A great start to a series Really enjoyed this book.Will write a review when I finish the series.A very good bookd 3 to go, can t wait

    15. Probably the best new fantasy epic in 2011 I already read and liked The Long Price quartet, but Abraham has upped his game in this ambitious project The influence of George R R Martin I think is clear in the grand scale of the world, the low but powerful magic that is a dark threat than an active presence, and most of all in the careful development of the main characters and in the unexpected brutal twist in the storyline In the interview at the end of the book Abraham also mentions another fav [...]

    16. Very well written first installment of series I enjoyed the story arc of all the characters but especially Geder who definitely took a different path than I thought at the start Two of the main story lines only touched briefly a couple of times so I ll be interested to see how they affect each other.

    17. This is a book that is a must in fantasy literature, and it is a solid 3.75 It has the right amount of war ish , political intrigue, unusual elements a bank and a veteran The PoV are enough but not too many to confuse the reader The characters were okay for me, nothing special and nothing bad I did not connect with any but I was extremely intrigued by the story and it was a difficult book to put down and stop reading Yet, I believe had a big miss which is the overarching story was pretty much mi [...]

    18. First up, let s get something clear, this book doesn t have any actual Dragons in it, despite the name, and The Dragon s Path is actually a road which connects various places in this world which was once made by Dragons back when they were in the world I don t know if going into this book I should have known that there were no dragons, because I would say that the title is misleading, but unfortunately I didn t realise and therefore the distinct lack of Dragons was a source of constant disappoin [...]

    19. I really enjoyed this multiple POV low fantasy story This was the first Daniel Abraham I ve read, although I ve enjoyed his work in the writing duo James S.A Corey The characters are diverse and although it s seldom the case in multiple POV books, I found myself invested in all of them I usually have favourites and not this one again s fairly early in a series of this sort, but that didn t happen this time I found each of the main characters engaging and interesting enough that I was always happ [...]

    20. I d heard great things about this author in the corners of the internet I frequent, so trying out his new book seemed like a good idea The beginning didn t grab me, but in the first chapter we meet an acting troupe putting on a play that so cleverly mocks epic fantasy despite the actor s warnings that anything could happen , the good triumphed, the evil were vanquished that I was intrigued enough to continue And so I did, even though as of about halfway through the book I found myself disliking [...]

    21. Where are my dragons Despite the lack of dragons, this book was great I wasn t expecting much when I started, but I am now excited to see how the rest of the series will unfold.Dawson was an incredibly boring character and it took awhile before Geder grew on me, but he had wonderful character development and I am sure it is only the beginning for him I loved Marcus and Cithrin The setting with the bank made the world very unique and well developed.

    22. Excellent series debut and while a partly introductory book, there are a lot of goodies, a great ending at a perfect stopping point and potential for this to become of my top series of all time.I will add as the release date gets closer and of course I will add the full FBC review later in the year but for now if you want a reasonable comparison, i would say that this reads like a much better Way of Kings without all the unnecessary verbiage that was such a drag there traditional fantasy but wi [...]

    23. The Dragon s Path is a story concerned with character, politics, and economics than battles and magic We follow a mercenary, a bumbling soldier, and a banker throughout most of the story I enjoyed the book despite having some issues with it.What I really enjoyed about the book is that it s a nice change from what I ve been reading lately, mainly the Malazan series The Dragon s Path isn t grimdark It s not doom and gloom, battles all the time, and solidering Daniel Abraham focuses on the politi [...]

    24. The Dragon s Path is the book I ve been looking for for years This is made all the painful given that this book has been sitting on my to be read shelf for almost four years, waiting The I read it, the I found myself agreeing with the GRRM blurb on the front This book ticks off nearly every box on the list of things I look for in a good fantasy story It s original, yet familiar It s epic, yet doesn t shy away from letting you get into the heads of deep, believable characters in a personal way [...]

    25. Am tot zis c am s i dau patru stele, dar acum, c nd a sosit vremea, mi am zis what a hack , cine scrie o astfel de poveste fantasy ce pare c va umple de s nge ora e ntregi i va l sa n urm mun i de oase, i tu n schimb cape i o poveste realist , chiar dac pe lume exist treisprezece rase de umanoizi, create cu mii de ani n urm de dragoni ce s au m cel rit ntre ei Ei bine, cel care o scrie este nimeni altul dec t Daniel Abraham, care reprezint , toat o lumea tie, jum tatea cuplului de autori ce semn [...]

    26. I m going to take a bit of a risk by comparing this to George R R Martin s A Game of Thrones, since I have yet to actually read any of those books However, I haven t escaped the general critical acclaim and analysis of the story, or many of the plot points, being the popular phenomenon it is, so I m going to say that Daniel Abraham s The Dragon s Path looks like A Game of Thrones without the constant shots of sex, violence, and grimdark despair.That s not to say there is no sex or violence in th [...]

    27. Full Review at Tenacious Reader tenaciousreader 2015 0The book is reminiscent of a historical fantasy There are references to dragons and different races of humans, but really there is not much fantastical creatures or magic in this book Which is honestly fine by me as I most of my favorite books are low fantasy There are four main characters that are really two sets of two, meaning Cithrin and Marcus s storylines intersect and Geder and Dawson s storylines intersect Though I feel it was really [...]

    28. Un nceput foarte bun de serie, matur, cu personaje ok, cu mai multe fire narative i cu o scriitur bun Nu e prea fantasy, cel pu in primul volum Dac treci peste capitolul de introducere care cam p c le te viitorul cititor, povestea se transform imediat ntr o intrig politic , medieval , foarte asem n toare cu cea din c r ile lui George RR Martin i asta nu e r u deloc, de i eu parc a fi vrut un pic mai mult Exist un trecut fantasy cu dragoni care au creat lumea i omenirea i cele 13 rase umanoide pe [...]

    29. The Dragon s Path follows four main protagonists Geder, a noble in military service, Cithrin, the determined ward of a bank threatened by invasion, Marcos the military hero who s chequered past leads him to take Cithrin under his wing and Dawson, a noble conspiring to protect his King against traitors and rebellion.All four of them are all flawed in some way creating interesting situations as their story s develop Cithrin is an orphan with a flair for business, coming into adulthood, she begins [...]

    30. Excellent read A lot of people have compared this work to A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE for some pretty obvious reason that have little to do with the writing or story telling Though they do share a genre and a similar POV chapter setup, in my opinion they share little else in common.This book suffered a little in the beginning from a very quick POV chapter change I was very confused for a quarter of the book however once my brain caught up with my eyes I found this book greatly satisfying The story is [...]
