Dragonfrigate Wizard Halcyon Blithe Well I read the first one so I read this one Don't believe the cover uote that says it's as good as Harry Potter far from it It has enjoyable moments but overall was a mediocre read Not my taste though one or two supporting characters definitely intrigue me The second in a series this book continues the adventures of the title character a mage and naval officer in an island military aboard a dragonfrigate – a ship built on top of and powered by a sea dragonThis book was a 2 clearance pick and honestly I wouldn’t spend much than that on it The character development where present at all was weak and I didn’t find any of the characters particularly likable There was some interest in the uniue setting but it was hampered by lackluster writing and a meandering plot that only barely kept my interest Also I understand that the book is about the star and title character but I still found Halcyon rather inflated as a hero It’s been a few months since I read this book and it has already made its way to a used bookstore Halcyon Blithe being a young man of good breeding and lineage as well as endowed with the ualities and abilities recognized as great potential is ready to seek his fortune among those who tend and sail the awesome nautical juggernauts the dragonships which harness the bodies and strength of living dragons with seafaring technology as he accepts his rank as Dragonfrigate Wizard Halcyon BlitheIn the latest chapter of the young wizard's nautical education he finds himself second in command of a captured enemy vessel that must engage a demonship in combat When he returns to port Blythe is assigned duty on a dwarven dragonship  It is on this very ship that he and his shipmates encounter deceitful politics before they can regain the security of their Arcanian dragonship and trusted crewmates Combining elements of Hornblower with Harry Potter and Robert Louis Stevenson with Robin Hobb Dragonfrigate Wizard Halcyon Blithe is a nautical tale rich in magic and intrigue set against a panorama of fantastic naval battles   This was a worthy seuel to the previous volume It showed its Horatio Hornblower influences on its sleeve but that is not a bad thing The editing in the book was uite bad especially for a professionally produced book I expected better from Tor There was also one or two places where the author misused nautical terms All in all I enjoyed this book I liked the first one for its originality and I wanted to see how the story progressedSadly I was sorely disappointed This book comes across like a not particularly good fan fiction even to the point of the odd error indicating that it lacks a proper beta readerThe plot felt as if it were being thrown together in an effort to include as much new stuff as possible and didn't actually seem to be going anywhereI'm not looking forward to the next one nearly as much A bit better than the last one if memory serves Certainly a lot action in this one Editing on it is a bit weird There's a few descriptions whole paragraphs that make a second appearance later in the bookstrangeIt was like dejavufreaking me out a bit Ah well I liked it Magic pirates navy warfare dragons tentacles trolls dwarves elves mysterious maidens all the stuff that tempers a great hero like Halcyon Blithe Halcyon Blithe is the fantasy eual to Horatio Hornblower to Ramage and BolithoA good deal of fun in a nicely constructed world We need to see of these by Ward and to learn about the war that is taking place Our hero grows with each book and adventure The seventh son of a seventh son a great and uick read A good solid seuel Proceeding similarly to Hornblower More magic in this one but I consider it a good thing Also the Dwarven culture in this one is pretty coolI'd love to see a gaming world for Ward's universe since he's a game designer I wonder if already has one This book is rather awkward There is of an attempt at a plot but somehow everything just falls flat It simply isn't a series for me To bad there are no in the series this was pretty good but now I am left hanging
