Book Review: Dragon's Trail by Joseph Malik

Dragon's Trail
By Joseph Malik
Genre: Fantasy-Thriller
Book Description: 

"I didn't come here to sell my soul. I came here to buy it back."

Once dubbed "The Deadliest Man Alive," Jarrod Torrealday is a former Olympic saber hopeful and medieval weapons expert banned from competition for killing another fencer in a duel. He now scrapes by as a stuntman and technical consultant for low-budget fantasy films.

A young sorcerer from another world offers Jarrod the gig of a lifetime: adviser to the war council of a magical realm teetering on the edge of collapse, with a foreign army massing just beyond its borders.

Swept into a treacherous and deadly world of intrigue and conspiracy, Jarrod soon learns that the enemy mastermind is also from Earth, and has laid the foundations for a new kind of war.

Dragon’s Trail is an epic fantasy thriller currently available through Kindle Unlimited and available for review and comment on Goodreads.

Book Review:

Dragon's Trail is such a great fantasy novel! I really enjoyed it! It was captivating from the first page and what really pulled me in was the language used in the book. It really made me feel in that medieval time period. I do think though, that there was a lot of stuff happening at once in the beginning, which was a tad overwhelming.

Jarrod is a wonderful main character, he is courageous and strong with some humor to him which really lightens up the story. There is so many well-developed characters, it's really nice to see that! Dragon's Trail is also filled with so many awesome mythical creatures!

Anyone who wants a short fantasy-thriller-adventure book should definitely check this one out! Overall I would give Dragon's Trail five stars!
