  1. Hooray I ve finished I ve been reading this book for 16 weeks I m a sloooooow reader And it s a long book At 220,000 words it s longer than any book I ve written and almost three times as long as Prince of Thorns Still, it s only half a George Martin doorstop.But mostly, I had an electronic copy and I don t get on with reading from my laptop I keep nipping off to the internet So to the book.First off, it s really well written Anthony Ryan can write In fact he s annoyingly good.There are three po [...]


  2. Have you ever read a book that felt like it was written just for you That s how The Waking Fire made me feel It had everything I love in fantasy novels and then some And it was also one of the best dragon books I ve ever read nice The Waking Fire was a cool merge of dragon centric high fantasy and 1920s era steampunk It was filled with an abundance of exotic settings everything from the high seas to ancient ruins deep in the jungle It took a while before dragons really became the champions of th [...]


  3. I received a signed ARC of The Waking Fire the day before my birthday Best birthday gift ever I ll begin by saying that The Waking Fire is nothing like the Blood Song If you are looking for a Badass and heroic, flaming sword holding and ever winning protagonist, you are searching in the wrong place.The story is evenly divided between 3 POV characters A naval officer, a well accomplished thief, and an Academy graduate James Bond ish secret agent But they are not what makes this book great That wo [...]


  4. 4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum 2016 07 19 A departure from his Raven s Shadow trilogy, Anthony Ryan s latest novel The Waking Fire is the start of a new series featuring a compelling blend of fantasy, adventure, and intrigue And if there was one thing I learned from reading Queen of Fire, it s that Ryan has a talent for writing amazing scenes of battle on the high seas which are also plentiful in this new book Then, there are the dragons Oh, we mustn t forget the dragons.In this [...]


  5. I have not read any book by Anthony Ryan but I can say that I am in the Anthony Ryan fan club as of December 12 This book is just a majestic combination of several fantasy elements in a 16th century setting primarily for the weapons being used rather than medieval Magic, dragons and the cover is just an amazing visual of the book and, as for covers, is just a great selling cover for me , adventure which also includes the Renaissance financing of companies and adventures such as enpedia wiki Bank [...]


  6. while different than Raven s Shadow much modern with guns, engines and magic this reads superbly so far about 100 pages in, making one forget about the debut trilogy books 2 and 3 major letdown read 200 pages so far and I have to say that it is just awesome stuff, better even than Blood Song at least considering my tastes since it s considerably imaginative if it keeps going like this it will be 1 for the year by farI finished the book and while it kept its page turning qualities till the end, [...]


  7. 4.5 stars.Many fans of Bloodsong have not been as impressed with The Waking Fire However I did not like BloodSong but I did like this The multiple POV and the world building took some getting used to this was not a book I could read terribly quickly as there was a lot to absorb.Action galore though from about a third of the way in I really enjoyed the story and a new take on dragons and am looking forward to the next volume which I believe is published next summer.Oh, by the way do NOT try this [...]


  8. Waking Fire is a fairly hard book to assess Mostly because I cannot read it without thinking of Anthony Ryan s first series The first book in the Raven s Shadow series, Blood Song, was absolutely fantastic and as a result Waking Fire suffered a little bit by comparison I also found that my memories of the flop that was Queen of Fire, the final book in the Raven s Shadow series, had left me wary and slightly untrustful of Anthony Ryan as an author and that effected my enjoyment of this story I di [...]


  9. I really, REALLY loved this book The main reason is a lot of the content felt very fresh When reading a ton of Fantasy it can start to feel like most stories are the same Not this one For one, I hate books with multiple POV s, but this one made me love it Each character s story was extremely interesting and I never once thought Ugh, just move on to the next character already like I do with most multiple POV books I also loved the magic system I personally can t recall any book where they use dra [...]


  10. I decided to dnf the Waking Fire Second book I dnf this year I just couldn t care any less about the plot, the characters, and everything else The writing style doesn t help I really tried but I couldn t even reach half of it I rated it 2 stars for the benefit of the doubt I was really excited to read it but it didn t meet my expectations at all.


  11. What a fantastic beginning to a series If asked before reading this I would have said that Steampunk held no interest for me Well, I was so very very wrong.A great story Great characters Fantastic writing.This is his best book yet Can t wait for book two


  12. I still feel pretty burnt by QUEEN OF FIRE Don t know if my pride can let me give Anthony Ryan any money


  13. 2 26 16 WE HAVE A COVER Why, Anthony Ryan WHY Why did you have to sign with Orbit They bloody and inexplicably HATE me kicks aluminum can


  14. Well well well, what a surprisingly, refreshingly different fantasy setting and story Blew me away It s safe to say I am now an Anthony Ryan fan This story took my out of my medieval set comfort zone, but kept me within reach of my beloved dragons including greeeeeeens, which is awesome those who know me will chortle, no doubt.Think Australia as an early British colony, or the Americas for that matter or perhaps an amalgamation of the two, with mutated tribes, corporate dragon hunters and ironcl [...]


  15. An intriguing world revealed through the perspectives of three strong and interesting characters The scale is epic and Ryan is capable of casting his various threads out and drawing them together in a satisfying way The next book has been well set up and I am thoroughly looking forward to diving in as soon as it is released The Waking Fire had a lot going on that I enjoyed I was particularly in the mood for something epic in scale and this book delivered in that respect The main plot is world ch [...]


  16. SOOOOOOOO cool A mixture of steampunk with fantasy and Sandersonlike magic system which is awesome A great beginning to the trilogy The characters where solid, action scenes well written and lots of tchem and the backstory slowly reveals itself and THE DRAGONS D D D although i wish there was page time with tchem but iam sure well get that in later books Loved it so much 5 stars D


  17. While I picked up a paperback copy of Blood Song late last year, I hadn t yet had a chance to give it a read before landing an ARC of The Waking Fire Fortunately, it being a new series, I wasn t at all hesitant about making it my first literary foray into Anthony Ryan s world Despite that, I still let the ARC linger for a couple of months, always intending for it to be my proverbial next read.And then I saw that Django Wexler called it, part Indiana Jones, part Pirates of the Caribbean, and part [...]


  18. I finally managed to finish this beast of 600 pages and I m glad I did The author s writing is complex, rich and filled with interesting twists and turns I think the most interesting thing about the book is definitely its steampunk world that revolves around the exploitation of drakes aka dragons The reasons why drakes are sought after lies in their blood, but not many people can use it and those that can are called the Blood blessed Drakes are differentiated one from another according to the co [...]


  19. Christ on a bike, that was amazing I m not really sure what I could say about this book that hasn t already been said I listened to the audio book and it was bloody brilliant And I can t wait for book 2 And you must all go and read listen to it.


  20. Definitely a step up from the Raven s Shadow series, imo Hope it doesn t get marketed incorrectly but I think it already is Jesus Christ, are Wheel of Time, Sanderson, and GoT the only fantasy ppl can compare to This should also have much wider appeal than Ryan s previous series Naomi Novik and Marie Brennan fans will probably like this a lot There was a lot better female characterization in this too More accurate comparisons besides the two above Golden Compass with dragons Indiana Jones A bit [...]


  21. Fantasy with a steampunk flavor.In this world, society has become invested in the blood of drakes the rare and dangerous dragons are hunted down and rendered into different potions that imbue human users with different abilities super strength, or the ability to communicate telepathically in a trance, or what seems like telekinesis, c Each color of drake is used for a different kind of potion but no one knows what abilities a potion made from the blood of the elusive and possibly legendary white [...]


  22. Ich hab da mal noch eine Review zu diesem Titel verfasst Zu finden ist der unter geek germany buch review daMit Das Erwachen des Feuers wurde der Beginn einer weiteren Reihe von Anthony Ryan ins Deutsche bersetzt Bereits vor einigen Monaten besah ich mir das englische Original und setzte es auf meine Wunschliste Grob in Erinnerung blieb mir nur, dass es um Drachen geht, deren Blut f r magische F higkeiten genutzt wird und es langsam, aber sicher immer weniger Drachen gibt, die man anzapfen kann [...]


  23. _The Waking Fire_ is a fast paced, well crafted, epic fantasy steampunk adventure with insanely good worldbuilding, gripping fight and battle scenes, a highly inventive magic system, and a skillfully written plot that builds upon elements introduced early on, revisiting events from the beginning of the book, showing them to the reader in a new light and using them to build up to both an epic climax and whatever is next in this excellent saga The world of _The Waking Fire_ is divided between two [...]



  24. InhaltDie Drachen werden immer schw cher und das k nnte zu Krieg f hren, sollte das Corvantinische Kaiserreich erfahren, dass Mandinorien schw cher wird Denn von den gr nen, roten, blauen und schwarzen Drachen wird das kostbare Produkt gewonnen, dass den blutgesegneten Bewohnern Mandinoriens bernat rliche Kr fte verleiht.Doch nun spielen die Drachen verr ckt Sie werden weniger, schw cher, und verhalten sich ungew hnlich Das Eisenboot Handelssyndikat vermutet, dass die Sache mit dem legend ren we [...]


  25. Fantastic start to a terrific new series from this author, nice blending of epic and steam punk fantasy Great female characters.


  26. I was sent this book for free from the publisher and on audible, in exchange for an honest review This book is the first one in a new fantasy series by Anthony Ryan, set in a world where drakes dragons have been hunted near to extinction for their blood The Drakes that do remain are extremely volatile and nasty, and they are often killed by hunting parties in order to gain their blood which, when drunk by a blood blessed, will grant various powers We have green, blue, red, blackd maybe the fable [...]


  27. The Waking Fire by Anthony Ryan is the type of fantasy that will satisfy even the most demanding reader Ryan envisioned a very dark world, an odd combination of futuristic and steampunk elements with bits of swashbuckling adventure thrown into the mix that actually works extremely well In some aspects, it seems to be ahead of our times, what with government and democracy being long forgotten, but paradoxically, things like the social structure call back times long past There are illiterate serva [...]


  28. The Waking Fire is the first book I ve read by Anthony Ryan and I must say that I really enjoyed it The world building was good and the magic system was interesting It reminded me a bit of Mistborn with the whole ingesting a substance to gain the magical ability thing I liked the combination of magic and steam with guns thrown in as well, and of course the dragons It kind of had an old west feel to it at times The book is broken down into three different character points of view, and it alternat [...]


  29. Executive Summary A great start to a new series It blends a lot of different things together in an interesting way to feel original I m really looking forward to see where he takes things from here.Audiobook Steven Brand is a great narrator He reads with good inflection, and does a few voices In the past my main complaint about him has been he speaks too quietly He s either fixed that, or the people making the books are adjusting his volume up to make him a lot easier to hear than past books I v [...]
