Power that’s growing ever more impossible to hide… Captain Telryn “Trip” Yert is on the most important mission of his life. Accompanied by Captain Kaika, the sentient soulblade Jaxi, and Rysha Ravenwood—the noble-born scholar and officer he definitely shouldn’t be developing feelings for—he must find a way to close a portal that’s allowing more and more dragons into the Power that’s growing ever more impossible to hide… Captain Telryn “Trip” Yert is on the most important mission of his life.

If he fails, all of humanity could fall to the powerful creatures. As if that wasn’t enough to worry about, the secret Trip has spent his whole life hiding, that he can draw upon magical power, is on the verge of being discovered.

    The review of the entire series is available at my blog Revelations is awesome. My chief complaint about Dragon Storm, its lack of movement, is addressed so well in this book. The action is brilliant and I can actually remember the high points. The pacing as well as plot in the book are great.

    “Power that’s growing ever more impossible to hide…” Ok, a bit of s disclaimer here: I adore Lindsay Buroker’s books, whether they’re steampunk, star empire, fantasy, SFR under a pen name or anything else, they’ve all been superb. She’s simply the platinum standard for indie sci fi and fantasy authors as far as I’m concerned (and no, I’ve never met the lady other than through her books so I’m perfectly capable of being objective here). No surprise then that I was excited when she started a new “Power that’s growing ever more impossible to hide…” Ok, a bit of s disclaimer here: I adore Lindsay Buroker’s books, whether they’re steampunk, star empire, fantasy, SFR under a pen name or anything else, they’ve all been superb.

No surprise then that I was excited when she started a new series, Heritage of Power, or that I enjoyed Dragon Storm, it’s book 1, so much. And now we have Revelations, book 2 of the series, and boy is this ever s treat. Even ignoring my weakness for books with dragons in them, and never mind just how cool Jaxi is (a sentient soulblade, c’mon!), Telryn “Trip” Yert, Kaika and Rysha are beautifully crafted, complex characters and it’s a pleasure following along as they interact with each other and the well-crafted world around them with its fine cast of supporting characters. This may indeed be Trip’s most important mission but he and his companions will handle it in style - and we’ll learn an awful lot of cool stuff about Trip along the way. Total adventure. Total thrills. Total fun. Highly recommended.

    Review of the series: I read this series before finishing the prequel series. While you do get some spoilers about what's to come in the other series you otherwise don't need to read the other one to enjoy this one.

That works for me because I can fill in a good bit on my own. Plus, too much detail will drag down the Review of the series: I read this series before finishing the prequel series.

That works for me because I can fill in a good bit on my own. Plus, too much detail will drag down the pace. However, if you need a lot of complex worldbuilding and details then your enjoyment might be diminished. Her characters are all quirky and unconventional heroes and heroines. That is one of the things I love about this author, how her characters are all unusual and misfits in their own ways. For the most part they start as underdogs and grow into their potential which is very satisfying to read. Her books are very much character and action driven. I also love the female positivity in her books. They aren't the in your face, all men are bad and women rule and are superior types. They simply show a variety of really strong women in very different ways who display different types of competency. They also easily hold their own next to men. If you like some light hearted fantasy that doesn't take itself too seriously, along with some humor then give this author a try. Humor is always very personal and not everyone enjoys the same types. This author's humor tends to be a little screwball, perhaps a bit sophomoric, broad and droll. If you need more of a highbrow type of wit looks elsewhere. I think her humor adds to the feel of her books, that they are for escapism and not meant to be taken overly seriously. Basically, her books are great for getting away from the real world for a bit.

    PS! This review is for the first five books in the Heritage of Power series/the entire series (depending on whether Buroker decides to grace her readers with more stories about these characters). I read the entire series back to back, and honestly, I don't think I could easily differentiate between these five books just because the plot flowed easily and honestly it just felt like one story to me.

This review is for the first five books in the Heritage of Power series/the entire series (depending on whether Buroker decides to grace her readers with more stories about these characters). I read the entire series back to back, and honestly, I don't think I could easily differentiate between these five books just because the plot flowed easily and honestly it just felt like one story to me. Sure, there were different plots to each of them, but the romance between Trip and one bespectacled officer made the story flow like one story for me. I loved meeting some of my old favourites from Buroker's "Dragon Blood" series - some of those characters were more prominent, such as Jaxi and Bhrava Saruth, but they didn't take over the series as their own. It was still mostly Trip's story and really, really enjoyed it. Buroker herself has said that Heritage of Power is a different series from Dragon Blood and if one wished, they could simply skip Dragon Blood before diving into this series, but I actually feel as if some of the reading experience would be lost that way. I have read all of the books in the Dragon Blood series and I still felt that some parts needed a bit refreshing as some connections between different characters or their backgrounds weren't as clear as they maybe could have been. However, Buroker did a great job at trying to describe these different relationships without spoiling the contents of the other series if a reader hasn't read any or some of those books. And as always with Buroker's books - once you start, it's really, really difficult to stop and once you do finish with all of the books, you feel like you want more. I definitely want more as I need to know what happens to Shulina Arya and if she finds herself someone as well.

    The series just keeps getting better. Rysha, Trip, and of course, Kaika were all great characters in this book. The other characters were more secondary but had their parts in the story. The PoV changes between Rysha and Trip, usually every chapter, sometimes within the same chapter, but it all feels natural. Again, I must say these characters have really grabbed me and I love the budding romance between Rysha and Trip. They have a great chemistry and I love how goofy and awkward they can be The series just keeps getting better. Rysha, Trip, and of course, Kaika were all great characters in this book.

The characters grow over the course of the story and the plot moves forward and resolves well, but still left me wanting more with the next book. I seriously love this series and can't wait to start the next book (I have started the next book actually).

    Very good This book was very good, and I am really enjoying this series. The characters are wonderful and relatable. I hate there has to be anything keeping Trip and the girl apart. Glad I found this author. Totally caught up in this story, and have a hard time putting it down.

    I couldn't wait to get hold of the second book after I read the first. The book is true to its title, Revelations. Trip and this reader become aware of what he truly is and is capable of at the same time. Trip is such a lovable character and a reluctant hero. The story gets more and more exciting as there are more dragons and adventures.

There is an undeniably growing attraction between Rysha and Trip but as Trip is considered odd mostly by himself, will their relationship flourish? I stayed up late to finish this book and immediately started on the third. Can't get enough of this new dragon series. Lindsay creates a variety of characters in her stories and all types of people are well-represented. Her imagination knows no bounds. I wouldn't be able to think up the twists in her stories. She is full of surprises.

And then there are the dragons, oh my. Not only are there evil dragons trying to kill or enslave humans, but there are friendly dragons that are human allies. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series, Origins, to continue the adventure.

    9/10: Fantastic, left me wanting more. Wonderfully descriptive and with characters you can’t help rooting for. Each adds something to the story. Sometimes it might just be a laugh. There’s Lieutenant Duck... “You’re about as arrogant as the lone cock in the henhouse, aren’t you?” Trip. Trip was positive it wasn’t manly to panic when a woman came close, but sweat dampened his palms, and he could feel his heart slamming against his ribs. And Jaxi the soulblade, of course...

Even if he was only there for a small part of it. ”Life tip, Trip,” Zirkander said, not looking up from the file he perused. “If a woman shows interest in your sword, you should always chat with her.” So, so good. Love this world and can’t wait to read more. NB. I received an early copy of this book through Patreon. Thanks, Lindsay! Brilliant as always.

    I'm enjoying Trip & Rysha's adventures I guessed the obvious "revelation" re. Trip's "heritage" early, but that was not a deterrent to enjoying the team's dragon-fighting and all the rest of the action and wisecracks. The soulblade that belonged to the pirate sorceress eventually speaks up, differing priorities lead to conflict with some of the Cofah, and several old friends/allies are found.

The tentative romance between the leads progresses slowly, given Rysha's difficulty in resisting the violent urges which the dragon-blood-hating sword she must wield causes, while she herself finds a distaste for the death that's a required part of any soldier's life. I'm going to go straight on to book 3.

    Visiting with old friends and some new ones Among all the great stories that ms. Buroker has created, my favorite is the Dragon’s series.

    When I started book 1 I was skeptical. I have never read a book about dragons, so I wasn’t sure if I would like it. But this world is captivating and has some interesting elements of magic. I don’t love everything about the story, but I am definitely enjoying learning about the world through Trip. I know it’s a common plot device, but learning about something through the main character, as he also experiences it for the first time, is very entertaining. I will definitely read the 3rd book!

    More dragon adventure I just love all of the books in this series. Each one is better than the last and the original characters, Ridge and Sardelle, now seem like old friends. Trip 's story continues with the quest to find and destroy the portal allowing dragons to re-enter the world. In the process, he finds himself being increasingly drawn to Lt. Ravenwood, who seems to return his interest.

    Totally better than the first book and more engaging! Trip slowly to get to know how to used his magic and able to defend himself and his comrades. I like the team but their belief about magic is kinda bit irritating especially Leftie. I like him but his belief make me hate him more. The balance of magic, swords and dragons story plot is better than the first book. I'm glad I decided to continue the series because I never regretted reading this book!

    Book 2 in the series was awesome. Trip and the team are headed to a frozen area that is not typically inhabited by humans in order to attempt to locate the dragon portal. The encounter a Cofah team that does not seem to have the same goals as the Iskandians, and they don't - they want to move the portal and only allow dragons who are loyal to the Cofah empire through. The book moved quickly and I enjoyed the further development of Trip and Rysha's characters.

    Series getting better as it goes along Trip (our hero) is not sure about his magical heritage -- he just wanted to be a pilot. But circumstances and allies conspire to force him into assuming his destiny -- one that seems to be figured out as it goes along. Lots of battles, mysteries, plot twists and turns. happy to be back in Buroker world.

    I love book 2 of this series. Book 2 is filled with adventure, dragons, smart mouthed swords, and two young people who are more than they thought they were. Lindsay Burokers characters are always interesting with quirks that I can relate to, smile at and want to know more about.

    Second installment of the new series in the Dragon Blood universe. More action, more dragons, and the return of more familiar faces. Trip continues to discover more about his background and deal with some of the interpersonal challenges that brings. Picks up right at the end of Dragon Storm.
