drake_series_book_1_cover_v1Episode 1: Emergence

Lost to myth and legend, few believed that dragons were real, and still fewer believed they could ever return. When a covert operation resulted in their release, all the might and power of the world couldn’t hold them back. With the world on the brink of defeat, the few who remain must grapple against all odds to combat an enemy that nearly drove us to the brink of extinction once before – and which is about to do so again.

From bestselling author Mike Kraus (Final Dawn, Prip’Yat) comes a new, five-book series: Drake: An Oral History of the Dragon War. In what can be best described as “World War Z with dragons,” Drake portrays a realistic, scientific history of the emergence of the drakes, and humanity’s subsequent battle just to stay alive. The gripping 5-part series will take you around the world, examining the history of the war from all sides: political, military, civilian, scientific and more.

Have you ever read World War Z?  Not the movie, the book… because if you enjoyed that, you’ll love this. This is dragons + WWZ, it’s interviews, honest talk about dragons! Who doesn’t love this? I honestly loved this idea. I am a HUGE dragon fan, I think dragons are some of the most interesting characters, and I’ve read a variety of different kinds. Dark, light, funny, serious, and this book was a great addition!  I want Dragons to be real, and this book did that for me.  For a short, around 80 page book, the author killed it. We really were in the Dragon War, seeing what the people are describing, it felt real, it was wonderful! I am excited for the next book in this series, because I want to know more! 80 pages wasn’t enough for me AT ALL! But, if you love dragons, and you wish they were real, you’ll enjoy this! 🙂 Give it a chance!

20130531_mikekrausheadshotProfessionally trained as a Systems Engineer, Mike has been a writer his entire life, spending his summers as a child writing of daring adventures and epic science-fiction exploits in a college-ruled notebook instead of playing video games. That love of writing stayed with him until it finally burst forth in the form of “Final Dawn,” a thrilling post-apocalyptic series released in an episodic format that has sold over 70,000 copies and counting. Final Dawn was followed by two other stand-alone books, “Prip’Yat” and “Cold Springs,” and Mike’s latest work is a new five-part series titled “Drake: An Oral History of the Dragon War.” Mike currently lives in Mississippi with his wife and three children and spends his days writing (of course), programming and tinkering on his PC.
