Review: Dragon Blood - Patricia Briggs

As the rebellion grows against High King Jakoven, Ward, ruler of Hurog, realizes he must join with the rebels. However, Jakoven can crush his enemies with dragon's blood. The very blood that courses through Ward's veins.

My thoughts:
Ok so I started this one right after having finished book 1 and it takes place 4 years after the events in book 1. The book was not as good, but then all the things that were new and shiny then, were not new and shiny here anymore. But hey it was still a good book that I read in a day.

Ward is rebuilding Hurog and is staying away from the wicked king Jakoven. But  the king is the baddie in this one so he comes after Ward. Civil war is close to breaking out and things are not good...*music of doom*

Ward is a true hero, and then I mean hero as in the word hero. If someone is on trouble he will help them. He is the best Lord there can be. Well after they got over the Ward is not simpleton thing ;)

People are finding their way in this book. The land around Hurog is free from the curse and I kept waiting for Jakoven to get thrown down. An icky king. Icky is too sweet a word but I do not wanna give away any spoilers.

Conclusion:
And now I want the rest of Brigg's fantasy books. I am slowly going through them all. Only 3 more now.

Great review. I'm so happy that you are really enjoying this series and that you're ready to read the rest. :-) I'm excited to see how the rest of them unfold for you, especially since you were apprehensive of reading her work at first!

A four-letter word, no shit. ;p You should always be careful with them.

I of course love the Mercy Thompson series but I haven't read any of her fantasy books. It's a shame this one isn't quite as good as the first, but it still sounds like a solid read!

Glad to hear that you enjoyed Ward and liked Briggs as an author

Chris said...

But what did you think of the cover?! ;)

Mary (Bookfan) said...

Is that Ward on the cover?

Melliane said...

I liked her other fantasy series but I heard it wasn't that good so I didn't try this one, maybe I should.

Heidi@Rainy Day Ramblings said...

Hmm... I am still not convinced to jump in and read this.

Darlene said...

It had to be pretty good to finish it that quickly. I'm sure you'll be through the rest in no time.

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

Sorry it didn't surpass or equal the first, but it still sounds like a good read. So need to start my Briggs books!

I didn't know she wrote fantasy..I've read two books of her UF books...I fear I'll never catch up with all of her stuff.
