Carentan, France 1944 – Ethan Martin, a soldier in the 101st Airborne, is fighting for his life. But soon he will learn what peril truly is when he is ripped from his world and transported to a land of magic, swords, and dragons. And though the Nazis are now far, far away, danger is closer than ever.

The Eternal Emperor, Shinzan has destroyed the mages and only a few dragons remain in exile. And now that Ethan, son of Praxis Dragonvein, has returned he must destroy him as well. Faced with unimaginable power, Ethan has only one hope – to reach the dwarf kingdom of Elyfoss before Shinzan can find him.

A young WWII soldier, Ethan Martin, finds himself in a fight with the Nazi’s. Fighting alongside of him is his friend and fellow soldier, Markus. The two are in a battle for their lives when something very strange happens. An old man appears before them, lying on the ground. He is dressed strangely and he talks in a language that is just as bizarre and unknown as his clothing. What follows will change Markus and Ethan forever. The old man ushers them into a strange and dangerous portal that transports them to another world.  Ethan and Markus are separated during the transport. Ethan then embarks on a mission to find his friend, amidst a world filled with elves, dwarfs, dragons and magic. Ethan is not prepared for what he finds.

Brian D. Anderson, the author of the popular Godling Chronicles series, begins this new series with high hopes of similar success.  The author doesn’t disappoint.  The story is very interesting and flows nicely. The characters display a richness of personality that will immediately win you over.  There were pivotal points, coinciding with some very good plot twists that dramatically elevated the story to a point where I could not put the book down.  It’s like magic, the story pulls you in, and you find yourself walking right along with the characters on their exciting journey.

Brian D. Anderson has turned the corner from being a first time author. He is now a well-established novelist with a fan base that is expanding every day. We all look forward to his future as a talented and accomplished author.

I give DragonVein 5 stars.
