Dragon Horn by J.P. Rice is an urban fantasy which finds Merlino, the magical guardian of Pittsburgh, on a quest to find the Dragon Horn in order to rescue his city from evil dragons. With the help of a few friends and companions he must travel through dangerous lands in order to accomplish this goal.

Dragon Horn is a thrilling ride that any urban fantasy fan will likely greatly enjoy. J. P. Rice peoples the book with characters who are somewhat outrageous, some humorous, some somewhat disgusting but usually fascinating characters nonetheless. Merlino cares deeply for his city and its residents and goes to whatever lengths necessary to protect it.

J.P. Rice has written another exciting installment in his Bloodline Awakened series. In Blood Goblet Mr. Rice mixes Shawnee mythology with what appears to me to be perhaps some Japanese mythology (not exactly sure of the actual origin). Merlino has to put together a company to find and acquire the Blood Goblet in order to rescue Cyclone Woman from the remaining members of the Seven Sorcerers.

This story is filled with plenty of action. We also come to know more about the characters as more of their backgrounds are revealed.

In Clipped Wings, Merlino discovers his mentor, a fairy who had been captured in Dragon Horn and Mike had believed was dead, Alayna was still alive and Merlino will go to hell [literally] and back to rescue her.

I like the fact that each book can be read as a stand alone. They are ended with only a hint of what might come next but nothing so cliffhanging that you are compelled to read the next book unless you enjoy the series and want more Merlino adventures.

Benjamin Allen does a fine job of narrating it. He has a pleasant voice and speaks in a manner that does not have me reversing the audio so that I can hear a section again and better absorb what had just been said. It definitely spoils the story a bit when I have to do that so appreciate it greatly when I don't have to. His voice is pleasant enough to listen to. He does not over dramatize.

If you are looking for a really entertaining urban fantasy this is one to try.

I received an advance copy of this audible book and am very appreciative of it this in now way influenced my opinion or my voluntary review.

Having all 3 books makes for a very long listen

Struggled to finish, due to its length. Very good narration. If you're into fantasy with wizards, dragons, fairies, demons, etc. and you've got the time to devote to it, then I recommend it.

Love a box set

Love a box set! I didn’t have to wait to know what happened- well now i do for book 4!
Mike Merlino is a wonderful guy just constantly trying to do the right thing. Unfortunately, this gets him into trouble because nothing is ever easy for him.

You’re going to enjoy this series!!!!!
