Hope by C.C. Hogan

HopeAfter the constant wars, betrayals, battles and death, it’s time for the peace the beautiful village of Deoram Ham provided. Populated by former warriors, dragon riders and their allies, simple townsfolk are building a new community and a new life. Johnson Farthing is now a farmer, free from the horrors of sending his friends to death as a General in a war he was ill-prepared to lead. Have the people finally found a place that war can never touch? Have they found a place where everyone is treated equal?

When news comes that war is about to beat on their doorsteps once again, Farthing must take up the leadership and lead his people to safety, but first he needs a boat that can take them across the waters in search of another slice of peaceful paradise, the island of Hope.
After the turmoil and bloodshed in the past, C.C. Hogan brings us a short tale of Farthing’s continued search for peace for his people. They no longer wish to be soldiers, the dragons have their own lives and the power of friendship and loyalty have created a false sense of security that is about to be shattered.

C.C. Hogan has created a world where his characters guide him with their words and actions. Honorable characters, characters with deep inner strength and Hope for a better future make this piece of the tales of Dirt a wonderful breather after the violence, bloodshed and heartache of the first trilogy.

I received this copy from C.C. Hogan in exchange for my honest review. (and, yes, I did read this out of order, I NEEDED to see where things went)
