Raiders of the Dry Coast by Billy Wong

Claudia , Leon and Julius are on a mission to save their realm. They face many monsters, dangers and vast desert lands to restore order and Peace. Along the way secrets are revealed, friendships are made, and lives are lost. Also Julius must come to terms with his past, and Claudia has some issues she is dealing with as well.

An adventure filled action story with a strong female lead. Claudia was very likable, and her personal secrets were understandable. Julius also has to face his past and learn the meaning of friendship. An enjoyable story for those who love action, fantasy and a strong female lead. I highly recommend Raiders of the Dry Coast. ( )

Not the best fantasy story by Billy Wong.

Is not the best fantasy story I have read. It misses some of the key literacy devices that helps keep you interested. There are some failed irony and humor attempts by the author.

Regardless, I think you should definitely read it. There is a very in depth story about here for you. even though it is not the best. You will need to use your imagination a bit more in this book. ( )

Not my favorite of Billy Wong's strong female warriors nor the most winning of his heroine's companions. The image of the wizard ecstatically hugging his lost love who is now more blue turnip than lady is one of the enjoyable scenes. Shortly thereafter the wizard is possessed by a revengeful character who has been unlikeable throughout but not intelligent enough to be interesting. All in all not up to Wong's other works. ( )

I was given an electronic copy of this book in exchange for a review.

This is a fantasy novel that makes an attempt at having humor and irony, but doesn't succeed well at either. The hero, if you could call him such, used to serve an insane wizard. Now the wizard is away and our hero is carrying out deeds of his own with the help of some comrades. That one of them is a woman who only fights with her fists -- and frequently wins, even against archers -- has got to be one of the ironic/humorous things that the author attempted. She's an interesting character, granted, but like most of the characters, one-note. Her goals are to be the best fighter ever and to get revenge on her family for selling her into prostitution. That's about it. The evil wizard? Just wants to resurrect his dead demon lover. And so on.

The worst part of the book was the fact that a character's brother kept changing his name. At one point, he was Edward, then Eric, then Edward again. Damn sloppy proofreading. Unless it was intended as parody, but if so, the parody wasn't obvious to me.

Though flat, the characters were different enough from the standard fantasy tropes to make this book interesting, but given the error, the flatness and the way that plot meandered back and forth, not one I'd consider rereading. ( )
