Review: The 19 Dragons by S.M. Reine

Book Blurb

There are nineteen provinces in the Land held aloft by nineteen pillars. Above the earth there is sky, and nobody knows what goes below except the Nineteen Dragons.

That is all you need to know, but that is not all there is to be known.

The Device has been stolen and the godlike Dragons have been rendered mortal. Someone is murdering them one by one, and each death brings the world closer to its end. Unless the Device is somehow restored to its deceased owner, the Dragons are doomed to destruction-- and the human world will go with them.

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

A thief steals the device from the first dragon.  Without the device, the first dragon falls as does a pillar holding up part of the world.  Many people die as that land falls away from the world.
The dragons have always existed.  However they had to appear human to survive.  They live in their human forms and are reborn into new ones when the time comes.
However one of the dragons wants to destroy his cousins and the world in the process. Each dragon that dies without the device will not be reborn.  With each dragon’s death, a pillar will fall and a part of the world falls away with it.
The second dragon is determined to save the remaining dragons and the world as war rages and the dragons are being stalked.  Time is running out.
In this steam punk story the author presents a world where there is more than meets the eye.  Each chapter introduces that number of dragon.  The author goes into detail about what happens to each dragon, which really kept the story going.

It was a pretty short read, but at some parts I was confused.  A war was going on but who was fighting who?  The world that the dragons lived in as humans was extremely confusing for me to follow.  I didn’t like that.  Then the ending totally confused me.  How was that possible?  It was not a well-liked story for me.  I felt like I was dropped in the middle of something and had no clue what was really going on.  I’m glad it was short and I usually don’t say that.  I gave this story a 2 out of 5.
