Summary

An epic war between dragons and mankind!

Dragons rule the world, united under their powerful dragon-king. Humans struggle to survive as slaves, pets, and prey. One man, the mysterious Bitterwood, strikes at dragons from the shadows, fighting a long, lonely war of resistance. When Bitterwood is blamed for the death of the dragon-king's son, the dragons launch a full scale campaign to rid the world of the legendary dragon-slayer - even if they must kill all of mankind to do so.

Critic reviews

"For the sake of humanity, join in Bitterwood's revolt." (Kirkus Reviews)

"A grabber from page one, a smart tale of adventure and revenge sprinkled with echoes of our own dangerous times. James Maxey's world of dragons and humans at war is so solidly and engagingly rendered that I never wanted to leave." (John Marco)

"Bitterwood is an unlikely hero in a rich world, with a rich history that holds many surprises. James Maxey tells his story with a sure hand. Enjoy the journey!" (Carrie Vaughn)

Amazing

Another cracker from James Maxey! Transported me to another world, which is very welcome these days! Jake Urry’s narration as usual was on point. James’ writing with Jake’s narration, really is a perfect
Match! I look forward to the next in the series.

A good story ruined by the narration.

Terrible narration. All the narrative and voices are delivered in a dull monotone. If you can’t sleep, listen to this and it will send you right off.
