The Dragons of the Storm By George Robert Minkoff Review

The Dragons of the Storm
by George Robert Minkoff
The Dragons of the Storm continues onward from The Weight of Smoke, the first volume of the In the Land of Whispers trilogy. While the old alchemist and mariner, Jonas Profit, relates the tales of Queen Elizabeth's pirate, Francis Drake -- whose circumnavigation of the world, and sinking of the Spanish Armada, enabled the English to envision a colonial empire -- John Smith dedicates the year of his presidency toward forming a new society with the surviving colonists, until his authority is stripped from him by his enemies, and he is forced to confront the legacies of Drake, Powhatan, and Roanoke.
I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  A mix or blend of history, with an adventure that can take days to get through.  The author gives you an adventure with a lot added in and character build that immerses you in the story.  I think maybe college age or older might enjoy this the most, but some younger history buffs might be equally entertained.
