Book Notes

The Rage of Dragons – Evan Winter

⛰ What It’s About

At it’s core, The Rage of Dragons is a revenge story.

Tau, a young, gift-less man has his close ones brutally murdered, and he resolves to claim his vengeance by overcoming impossible odds to become the greatest swordsman in the world, and claim the lives of the three people responsible for the injustice.

If that doesn’t sound epic, I don’t know what is.

🔍 How I Discovered It

It was recommended by one of my favourite YouTubers, Elisha Long, in this video.

Later I also found it mentioned in several Reddit posts when I was looking for a character-driven fantasy novel with light worldbuilding. (Attempting to move away from the heavy, philosophical classics I was reading)

🧠 Thoughts

What an absolutely mind-blowing book. Hats off to you Evan Winter, you made me fall in love with fiction again.

What I Liked About It

The incredible pacing, well-written plot and action sequences and the uplifting and inspirational message and theme of the narrative.

What I Didn’t Like About It

I felt that the romance aspect of the story wasn’t the best, and didn’t make you feel fully invested in it. Other than that, it’s hard to fault.

🥰 Who Would Like It?

If you’re looking for the kind of book that’s hard to put down, this is a safe bet. If you enjoy fantasy and action, this one is a must read.

Romance and thriller lovers should probably look elsewhere.

More importantly, if you’re looking to reignite the fire in your belly and strive to achieve greatness overcoming all odds, this book might just be the ember you need. In my opinion, that’s enough of a reason to at least give it a try.
