    As J.R.R Tolkien himself once said It simply isn t an adventure worth telling if there aren t any dragons And that principle rings through loud and clear in Heroika Dragon Eaters, a strikingly entertaining collection of short stories from seventeen writers possessing vivid imaginations.But how to summarize their offering without giving the game away Let s just say, there s something here for everyone From fiction that delves into heartbreak and tragedy, where the ultimate sacrifice is willingly [...]

    The English word Dragon is descended from the Greek Drakon , or serpent, and Draconta , or to see It is fitting in homage to the great mythological beasts, that many of them meet their end by being blinded.Heroika takes us on a journey through time and through the minds of 17 authors, all of whom have created a story in which the dragon, sometimes an ally, other times a foe, is seen as formidable and mighty I did enjoy the anthology and found it showcased the skills of the authors who work with [...]

    Heroika Dragon Eaters, Edited by Janet MorrisI first became familiar with Janet Morris through her stories in the Thieves World Series Morris generally wrote my favorite stories throughout that series, and when her characters from there, Tempus and Niko, appeared in several spinoff novels I also read and enjoyed those So, when I heard of a new fantasy anthology edited by Morris, I quickly picked it up In Heroika Dragon Eaters, Morris has put together seventeen short stories that all feature drag [...]

    I read quite a number of books by Janet Morris and Chris Morris, loved the exquisite writing style, and appreciated the detailed expertise in weaponry and horse riding skills that enrich their work garnered over a lifelong experience They are truly inventive in creating carefully defined rules of a universe shared between a team of authors Here, they define the thrust of this anthology using a long stretch of time Now heroes throughout history stalk their legendary foe HEROIKA I allows me to lea [...]

    What a fun read this was I had an absolute blast getting seventeen lessons on how to kill a dragon, and the heroes that take it upon themselves to rid the world of the evil that is dragons Each of the contributing authors brought a unique and enthralling story to the table One of the best part of this book for me was revisiting some old stomping grounds courtesy of Janet and Chris Morris, and Joe Bonadonna I very much enjoyed reading their stories taking place in familiar settings But THE BEST P [...]

    Awesome coverage of an awe inspiring collection of heroism and dragon fighting tales Crests off and swords raised to the editors, authors, and designers of the first in hopefully a long line of heroic anthologies Definitely a title any serious fan of heroism, SS, and dragons as the enemy should snap up

    This collection of stories written by seventeen great writers was a thrill to read The writers allowed us to reexamine the myths about dragons and presented them in every conceivable shape and form imaginable With these writers, the sky is the limit, with flying dragons, crawling dragons, swimming dragons, soaring dragons These mystical creatures are brought back to life to wreck mayhem and havoc on the world they aim to occupy, resulting in anguish and despair and ultimately the final sacrifice [...]

    Heroic Not being a great myth fantasy reader it took a couple of stories to get into this book, but I m so glad I did There are some excellent tales here I ve been trying to diversify my reading material, not always successfully, but these stories captured my imagination Bring Your Rage was the first one I really enjoyed, but after that they just got better and better I absolutely loved The Wyght Wyrm where the author, Cas Peace, retells the story of Jorj and the dragon on the Highcliffe overloo [...]

    What does it mean to be a hero Why, in the most dire of times, do some cower in fear while others find strength, courage, and a reason to fight What power from deep within can turn tragedy into triumph What sense of honor will make a warrior sacrifice himself to save another In this exciting new collection of short stories, the master of heroic fiction, Janet Morris, and her team of 17 writers, explore these questions and This is than just an anthology it is a journey deep within the mind of t [...]

    Dragons aplenty in this superb collection, which I was lucky enough to be given as an ARC Dragons are slain and slay in equal measure Myths are re told and every story has something to offer If you like the grand, epic, dragon killing stories in fantasy, this is for you If you like good stories well told, this will definitely satisfy your need.

    HEROIKA Dragon Eaters by Janet Morris and others is a remarkable collection of stories in which various historic periods have the dragons as the hunted and the people as the hunters.There is such a diverse wealth of tales here representing each in a unique and compelling style, showcasing each author s 17 individuals strength and interpretation.If I didn t understand dragons before, I certainly have a better appreciation now These dragons are multicoloured and as their life ebbs their colours fa [...]

    The First Dragon Eater Janet and Chris MorrisInteresting This piece has an intentionally elevated, formal style which effectively brings to mind ancient mythologies maybe Babylonian, than anything else One really gets a sense of a greater culture and complicated pantheon behind what s on the page However, that very quality of the writing also makes it a little bit inaccessible and confusing, as characters and events are continually brought up without explanation or introduction.It s a historica [...]

    In every anthology there is something for everyone some solid stories and real gems That is definitely the case with the diverse Heroika 1 Dragon Eaters edited by Janet Morris The stories, which all center on dragons, range from classic myths from England, Greece and Egypt to wide eyed futures.Most of the stories take a gritty, grimy approach to the business of dragons and dragon slaying Huge, mythical creatures whose mass alone make them impressive, have added bonuses of breathing fire and, in [...]

    Original Review HereI received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review A collection of short stories is always harder to review than a novel because each story has different strengths and weaknesses Heroika engaged me than I expected, however, as usually I enjoy stories where the dragons are the good guys and on the side of righteousness rather than being defeated in every story The characters in the majority were strong enough that I was rooting for them.My favourite story wa [...]

    I m not normally a huge fan of collections by different authors, but, having read this book I cannot say that any longer This was an excellent collection, all with something to offer that was good quality and enjoyable to read I can say that I am a fan of dragons, and as such I tend to be a little picky when it comes to stories with dragons in them This read left me with such a good feeling, it was as though I just finished a meal prepared by a Michelin Starred Chef I received an ARC through th [...]
