Retirement. Publishers, thank you for the many years of reading pleasure you gave me, but all good things must come to an end. Due to failing eyesight I am forced to retire. I can no longer review your books, and any that you send will be donated to the local library, unread. Do not send any more. I can only read for a couple hours every day, and this does not allow me to finish a book in reasonable time. I will be devoting time to my own books from now on, and reading on a personal level. Books that interest me. I prefer paperbacks and hardbacks, not eBooks. My eyesight has been failing the last few years, and I cannot handle hundreds of review books any more. My books are still available for review. Anyone interested in reviewing any of them, they are found in the Link to Tom’s Books On Amazon. Contact me for pdf copies at

Dragon Insurrection

Rating 5-Stars

“A Humorous Dragon Tale.”

When we last saw Farquarte in DRAGON CREED he was captured and chained, unable to shift change into dragon form. Fechum, the old dragon whom the young apprentice had slain for his gold, was now a ghost, haunting him. But after Farquarte’s capture the town folk have performed an exorcism to get rid of the old dragon’s ghost. Plus, his companions were also imprisoned. Things were looking bad for the young dragon, until his friend, Rick the Park Ranger, shows up to rescue him. The Ranger tells him that the evil Professor Breathe also turned him into a dragon. They rescue Jacques and Mimi, the brother and sister elves, and the mayor and his daughter, Alyssa, and start out for the King’s castle, along the way running into Sir Brian, the Knight, and dragon slayer. Things get complicated, but after numerous battles and lots of mishaps, the team reaches the King’s territory where they are met by his army, and a battle royal ensues.

There’s seldom a pause, and the author fills the yarn with lots of action and humor. In fact, this may even be better than DRAGON CREED, and certainly comes to a better ending. Remember, in DRAGON CREED, we were left wondering what would become of the fearless young dragon. This time there is a nice conclusion, though the story is left open for more sequels. For readers who like good story telling, and a fun yarn, I highly recommend DRAGON INSURRECTION.
