Dracones (Anthology)

After reading some reviews, I was expecting worse, but it was, like a lot of anthologies, a mix of good and bad--nothing excellent, however.

 

Fugue in Gold and Fire by Avery Vanderlyle -- A world where for the first time in a thousand years, people are facing being changed into their animal forms. Good story. 3.5 stars

 

Teller of Tales by D.K. Jernigan. The dragon (first person POV) is submitting a book to the young editor's (third person POV) publishing house. 2 stars

  

Weird Magics by E.E. Ottoman. Melodramatic steampunk like this:

"You are late." Daire bared his teeth from the cot, each word coloured by a strange hissing lilt.

How do you colour with sound? And, how do you hiss words with no Ss in them? 2 stars

 

Chanson Commencate de Guerre by Lor Rose. What we have in this story are Dom/sub dragons named, get this, Rayvak and Stormy. 2 stars

 

Two in the Bush by E.R. Karr. Kind of strange, but interesting, with giant owls! 3 stars

 

Finding the Rain by Tam Ames. A poor farmer and the son of a powerful dragon lord in fictional China. Good. 3.5 stars

 

Lukos Heat by Megan Derr. The most animalistic of the dragons, a fighter and killer, allies with a pack of werewolves (naturally). 3.5 stars.
