Summary

Above Oakenfall, fireworks light the night sky celebrating one hundred years, since the end of the vicious war that lasted for generations. Against all odds, Oakenfall had managed to free themselves from their dragon overlords. However, with the dragons gone, a band of barbarians unite in the north and seize control of Oakenfall’s sister city, Northholm. As the invading army marches south, the King is running out of options and turns to Darcy Dean, the son of a great war hero. But Darcy is more used to bookkeeping than holding a sword. Will he live up to be half the man his father was and step forward as the saviour of the city he calls home? 

Within the castle of Oakenfall whispers fill the throne room. There is talk of consorting with demons, an ancient relic of untold power, and the return of the scaled beasts of old. Darcy has no clue of the hardships about to befall him and the fellowship he is forced to gather.

An enjoyable story

I had the pleasure of working on a stall next to the author at London film and Comic Con in July 2022. I was impressed by the passion he had when talking about he books to his customers so I thought I would give the book a try. I enjoyed the story, dragons, elves, daemons that’s right up my street. I look forward to the next book in the series.

Great fantasy.

I throughly enjoyed this story. The author brings a wide range of characters to life with his vivid descriptions and easy to follow dialogue. The story is set in a deeply developed world, and has twists and action to keep the listener hooked. I can’t wait to hear how the story progresses in book two.

A great read

This was an intriguing read. The idea of a war that wipes out a the dragon Lords & the dragons. Then the new breed of barbarians make their move. They are savages and will stop at nothing to get what they want. The king sends Darcy on a mission to save the kingdom.Poor Darcy is not a man who handles a sword. He goes on the mission & when the Demon enters the fight things become interesting. Great characters, some strong and some plain evil. The narrator did an awesome job with the voices which was great. A page turner for sure.

Good story

Dragon’s blight was a good story with well defined characters and very interesting settings. Definitely not predictable, a lot of unexpected twists and turns. Groups who hated each other had to band together to try to stop the coming of the end of all of their lives as they knew it. The author did a great job of bringing the characters and scenery to life.

A New Fellowship

Damien Tiller has written a creative tale. The King has asked Darcy Dean to find an ancient relic that will help to save the kingdom. Since Darcy is not a soldier, he will need to gather some companions to help him complete the task. The world in this story is populated with many races. While Darcy is on his quest, Damien Tiller interweaves what is going on with the rest of the world as he updates the reader on what is happening with Darcy and his companions. I enjoyed this story and I recommend it to others who like this genre. Alan Turton's narration is splendid adding entertainment to a great story. I was given a free copy of the audiobook and I have voluntarily left this review.

A beautifully written epic fantasy adventure!

Tiller has brought to life a fascinating world that feels tangible, featuring characters you want to dive into the adventure with! The dialogue is so witty and is the book's strong point. If you're a fan of Tolkien and epic fantasy adventure, you'll enjoy Dragon's Blight and Tiller's classic writing style.

The narrator for this book is perfect! It is easy to differentiate between characters, and the performance is lively without being over the top! Wonderful job by Alan Turton!
