I have no idea why I chose this book to read. I was skimming thru some books on Amazon and decided to try it. Reluctantly I started reading the book when I forgot the book I wanted to read because I was at a place at work with no wi-fi. I was really happy I chose to read it.
Don't let the 3 stars fool you. For me, that's not a bad book, it's just not a memorable story, but it is entertaining. It has space pirates, a Confederate Militia not unlike the Star Wars saga, giant wyrms, and even larger Dragons, all intelligent and can do magic. These are the bad guys trying to take over, well everything. The good guys are different races, again sorta like Star Wars and some of these can perform magic. There are different types of magic in this series, like Earth, Wind, and Fire (wait, that's one of my favorite bands) that people can perform and the more different forms of magic you can perform, the stronger and more dangerous you are.
So what we have is a space opera that is not based on tech but on magic. Even the weapons are based on and made from magic. Now you get the gist of what the book is about but I won't go further into it, as Doctor Who says, 'spoilers'.
I like this so much that I've already started the 2nd in the series, Void Wyrm and it seems to be just as good as the first book.
