Dragon Magic Reviews
For the most part I enjoyed this tale of four men and the magic that binds them together, leading to love and adventure and plenty of other things along the way. Mostly because I liked the characters.
Mahzan is showy and flamboyant and I loved him. He’s argumentative and loves being the centre of attention, but I rarely found him annoying. He helped keep things interesting and his magic definitely made the bond more convenient. Because I liked Mahzan so much, it took me a long time to w ...more
Megan once again confirmed that she is the queen of polyam stories. This story was so good, I couldn’t even put it down. The time is 1:35am, I have to be up at 4:30, and yet, I couldn’t stop reading it until I was done.

Is it just me, or have Megan Derr's books been getting more and more 'out there' with respect to character devices? I'm awaiting the next book, presumably about an asexual intersex dolphin who finds romantic connections with xer demisexual gay-for-you mate along with a pansexual tree. I'll pass on that one, too.
I’ve long been fan of Megan Derr’s writing and this book is another to my collection of my favorites. I admit I was curious how she’ll handle four protagonists all falling in love, but it was magical.

I adored all four of the protagonists, always looking forward to the next chapter a ...more
I'm not having the easiest time summarizing my feeling about this book, but I'm gonna try and write a review regardless.
Probably ~3.5 stars for me.
Dragon Magic is a book about four men who get thrown together by devastating circumstances and, whether they want to or not, end up having to save their kingdom as a tightly knit group.
Those four men are Mahzan, the King's Jester, quick witted and with a sharp tongue; Sule, a young commander with a fiery temper; Cemal, a cheerful priest with a bloo ...more
What can I say? Derr books are my comfort read. Another great one.
I just love Megan Derr, she can do no wrong.
