What a fitting finale this proved to be – a great read by this talented author.

Austin Pryce had a tough start to life but has been highly successful, making great decisions that resulted in him being an acknowledged financial whizz, making himself a multi billion dollar fortune. He’s quite blasé about it all, living a playboy life style, so much so that his secret guard calls him a peacock. He doesn’t know that he’s also being guarded by Fiora Whitefang, a werewolf who has been tasked to watch over him but she’s had enough of his attitude and behaviour and is about to leave when everything changes as an unanticipated attack occurs, meaning the two actually meet and their adventures into the magical other worlds begins….

I had read a couple of the earlier books in the series but really appreciated how the author cleverly let readers know the background events via a magical book which tells Austin about them all. There’s lots of dramatic action, battles between dragons and demons and romance, too. The story is fast paced with great characters, bringing all of the dragons and their partners from the earlier stories together to battle against Vish’Kazir and his followers. A brilliant story of good v evil with plenty of angst and turmoil as Austin discovers his real past, comes into his own powers and finds his true love. However, with evil on the rise, can they reunite the Dragonlords and save the worlds?

I was given a copy of this book without any obligation to read or review.  This is my honest opinion after choosing to read it – and thoroughly enjoying doing so!

Synopsis

It’s here! The highly-anticipated conclusion to The Dragonlords of Xandakar series!

Austin Pryce is young and wealthy, a financial guru living in a multi-million dollar house near San Francisco. His entire life, every decision is a stroke of good fortune and every investment bears fruit. It’s almost as if he has a golden touch. Or perhaps something or someone wants to keep him happy and rich, away from the events of a troubled world and a destiny that awaits him. 

Fiora Whitefang is a wolf shifter, orphaned as an infant, raised in a secret brotherhood sworn to a strange mission she doesn’t understand. She’s supposed to live in Austin’s world, to watch over him without his knowledge, protecting him from some unknown threat. And yet, after several years of guarding him from the shadows, she has grown to think of him as spoiled and soft, hardly worth protecting at all. 

Meanwhile, a world away, a dark force has swept across the land. A group of heroes has banded together to try to stop it, but they face an unimaginably powerful evil. A leader from another world, a dragon from legend, will need to travel to his home to bind the heroes together and lead them into battle. Along the way, he will need to learn who he truly is, and relearn everything he thought he knew about love, family, and fate.

“Dragon Gold: A Tale Untold” is the fifth and final book in the Dragonlords of Xandakar series. It has a little bit of steam, and of course, a happy ending.
