The Lost Dragon by Drako
Andreas Damone, son of the Black Dragon God, Jarel, is more than 11,000 years old. At the beginning of the novel, his mission was to hunt rogue vampires in the city of St. Louis, Missouri. He has been alone for most of those years, having lost his soul mate prior to beginning his service for the Black Dragon God when he was serving as a Spartan soldier. His lover was a fellow soldier who died in Andreas’ arms during the war.
Jarel approaches Andreas with a special mission: he asks his son to protect Odele, one of Apollo’s healers. Jarel suspects that Kalos, leader of the massive horde of rogue vampires, will try to capture Odele and use her blood in a ceremony to raise Cronus. Cronus’ rising would ultimately lead to the rising of the Titans and a war above all wars as Cronus and the Titans would attempt to overthrow Zeus. It is Anrdreas’ job to prevent this from happening and to discover the identity of the traitor god or goddess shielding Kalos.
In addition to this massive task, Andreas is soon also tasked with guarding his nephews, as well as Cassandra.
The story itself was compelling, but the author had a jarring way of occasionally narrating straight to the reader. This was disturbing and interrupted the flow of the story. The text was often delivered in a dull, monotonous form, rather than enticing the reader through the wonders of mythology, as should have been done. There were also some grammatical issues that seriously needed to be resolved.
These issues aside, there is an 11,000 year-old love story, demons, dragons, detailed fight scenes, gods and goddesses and families that are more dysfunctional that most people can imagine. The Lost Dragon has something to offer everyone.
