This book is excellent! The only other recreational books that I have found like this one remain within the Warcraft realm. The author, Richard A. Knaak, is an astounding author. Day of the Dragon fits three different genre categories. Those categories are fantasy, adventure, and action. This book opens in the middle of a war between the Alliance and the Horde. Both factions contain different races who hate each other. Knaak uses detail, suspense, and interesting characters to keep me reading. Vivid imagery fills this book. With suspenseful endings at every turn, Knaak utilizes this tool well. This book expresses that war is an issue and it is prevalent throughout almost every society. I think this book is one of the best books I have ever read and I recommend it to all those who love adventure, fantasy, action, and all around good books.
