The Dragon Lords: Fool's Gold by Jon Hollins
Expected publication: July 19th 2016 by Orbit
Guardians of the Galaxy meets The Hobbit in this rollicking fantasy adventure.
It's not easy to live in a world ruled by dragons. The taxes are high and their control is complete. But for one group of bold misfits, it's time to band together and steal back some of that wealth.
No one said they were smart.
From the press release:
Jon Hollins has created a world where dragons run the show, enforcing their strict laws and collecting taxes. Fighting against this oppression is a group of misfits that has banded together to reclaim as much of the taxed gold as they possibly can without getting themselves burnt to a crisp. Or starting a revolution.
It's a book that's being marketed to fans of The Hobbit, Michael J. Sullivan, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Ocean's Eleven . . . and that's enough for me right there. Knowing that Orbit has bought 3 books in the series has me even more excited.
