This is an interesting interpretation of the transition from a very highly machine dependent society to stone age and the ability of the protagonists to handle difficulties as they arise. I enjoyed the surprising sourse of expertise from......but I am not going to spoil it for the new readers. Admittedly, the baser nature of man surfaces but in the context, it is almost inevitable. To me this is an excellent read - and I am glad there are sequels.

Even though Dragons is in the title, this is Scifi, not fantasy.

This book was okay, the writing wasn't bad, per se. However, it was so obviously written by a man that I didn't really enjoy the last third very much.

For some reason, he has a character learn how to be a military man and spends a lot of time describing boot camp. It seemed out of place, and overlong.

The female on the front is an elf whose sole purpose seems to be to have sex with the male humans. She's not the main character, and I don't know why she got to be on the cover, except she wears a bikini.

A woman is (thankfully off-page) raped by 8 men in this. I think her healing process is handled okay, but it squicked me out a little bit. I feel there should be a trigger warning or something.
