Dragon Fate (War of the Blades #1) by J.D. Hallowell

Dragon Fate (War of the Blades, #1)Dragon Fate, the debut novel by J.D. Hallowell, is a heroic fantasy adventure in the classic tradition of the genre. Delno Okonan is a young former soldier eager to put the swords and strife of war behind him, when a chance encounter leaves him inextricably entwined in a tangled web of dragons, magic, and intrigue, as he struggles to find his place among dragons and men, and stave off a plot by renegade dragon riders that threatens all he now holds dear.

REVIEW: ****

Excellent first novel. The characters were well rounded and fun to read about. This was a classic fantasy novel with dragons and magic and a young man who sets out on an adventure of a lifetime.  A quest type of fantasy that seems to be lacking in the stores these days. It was fun to read and I highly recommend this one.
