9780451461186: Dragonmaster (Dragon Master Trilogy)

Hal Kailas was truly flying as the dragon dove for speed, then climbed high, banking, rolling. . . . Above were the moons and the stars, and below the world he had little use for. . . .
 
Hal is a runaway pauper in a kingdom where peace is uncertain. But long ago, he had the breathtaking experience of bonding with a young dragon, and the memory of the beast’s great strength and power consumes his thoughts and dreams.
 
When war comes, only the most daring and ruthless men will ride these fearsome dragons—monstrous weapons that rule the sky. Few men can bend a dragon’s will, but Hal believes he may be one of them. Squadrons of men will fly into battle on the fiercest creatures the world has ever seen, and Hal Kailas will be the greatest dragonmaster of them all.
 
“A vast and intricate tapestry woven by a writer who knows both history and war.”—David Drake, Author of the Lord of the Isles Series
 
“Slam-bang excitement, lusty action, and military magic . . . fast-paced and ferocious.”—Julian May, Author of The Many-Colored Land

About the Author:

Chris Bunch is now a full-time writer following a twenty-year career as a television writer. A military veteran, he is the bestselling author of such popular works as the Sten series, The Seer King, and The Demon King. He lives in Washington State, on the Columbia River.

From Publishers Weekly:

Following his Dragonmaster Trilogy (Last Battle, etc.), Bunch continues the story of Hal Kailis in this first installment of his latest series, which entertainingly injects a medieval, authoritarian fantasy world with air warfare. Hal, at a young age already a veteran vagabond, graduates from the thrill of an impromptu ride aboard a dragon and employment with a small dragon-ride air circus, to conscription with an army that's enlivened by sorcery. Bunch lays out the customary lengthy war scenes, and when the army assembles large groups of dragons, Hal is ready to ride. Though he hails from a common family, he rises quickly through the ranks with his natural talents. The author successfully weaves early twentieth century-style warfare into this fantasy world-with the slightest leap of imagination, the reader associates these screeching, twisting dragons with the fighter planes of the first world war. As pilot, Hal lacks only the dangling flaps of a goggled helmet. In this endless war, dragons battle, riders fall and Hal becomes a flying ace. Military SF and fantasy fans will relish the action-packed plot and Hal's derring-do.
