    One thought on “The Dragons of the Cuyahoga

    1. Joshua Palmatier on said:

      The Dragons of the Cuyahoga is the first book by S Andrew Swann featuring newspaper reporter Kline Maxwell, who usually covers the political beat in Cleveland, OH, never the fuzzy gnome stories What are the fuzzy gnome stories Well, the main premise behind this book and the sequel is that a Portal has opened up in Cleveland and elves, dragons, mages, gnomes, and every other assorted fantasyland creature have tumbled through an inhabited the area around Cleveland They re limited in how far they c [...]

    2. Waller on said:

      Actually, this probably gets a higher rating from me because it s set in my hometown, and I loved seeing all the local references Swann clearly knows Cleveland, and in particular the East Side It is nontheless an interesting concept, a rupture in the fabric of the universe creates a connection between the real world and a world of magic, centered just offshore in Cleveland.

    3. Patti Mallin on said:

      Found the political aspects too convoluted, but enjoyed the nostalgia factor and the central character.

    4. Jason Burt on said:

      A good mystery, set in a modern, political adventure, with a bit of fantasy This is one of my favorite books I have always liked to read stories of fantasy adventure, but this one added politics into the mix, something I usually don t get into The character that takes you through the story is no hero Good guys, bad guys, and everything in between Many popular movies and books try to blend fantasy with modern realism This one does so better than most A good summary of the story, would be to ask y [...]

      So, I picked this book up because of a blog s 2015 Reading Challenge One of the check boxes said a book set in your hometown Since I m from Cleveland, the first thing that came to me is the Les Roberts series of mysteries I ve read a few, probably over a decade ago, but it s been a while, and I m not usually a mystery fan anyway.However, I started looking on for other books set in Cleveland, and this one intrigued me Cleveland, but with magic and Dragons Awesome While the idea is still awesome, [...]

    6. Liana on said:

      Soooo awesome I didn t think I d get into this story because I m not really into sci fi, crime, and mystery fiction But when saw the D word in the title, I couldn t ignore the chance to read it because I LOVE dragons This was certainly one heck of a story The creatures that we get in a typical high fantasy world dragons, elves, dwarves, unicorns, etc, fit in naturally inside this modern world our world I loved the mystery surrounding the dead dragon, and the mess the main character gets into He [...]

    7. Rex Libris on said:

      A magical portal opens up over the Browns Stadium and dragons and magical creatures come through and settle in the Cleveland area A newspaper reporter investigates the death of a dragon and of courses discovers so much .The plot is very complicated and convoluted There are conspiracies within conspiracies within conspiracies Natives of NE Ohio will like the story filled with familiar landmarks, places, and institutions.

    8. Aleina Louriano on said:

      Fantasy creatures in a city The overall concept of this is different, which separates it from other people and magic stories When the magic comes into the city, I like the way the people and their way of life is affected, its so realistic The detailed writing is flawless It shows you how difficult and interesting the life of a reporter really is As good as this book is, I do have some problems with it Why isn t Kline Maxwell a detective With how he thinks and the overall feel of the story, you f [...]

    9. Grimread on said:

      This book reads like a boring report instead of a fantasy novel I understand that the main character is a journalist and he is uncovering a very convoluted political plot, but I wish there was of him then just stating the current events It s like he has no personality in this just because he is a journalist and has to keep his objective point of view in the story he is covering Even the relationship with his ex and his daughter is so briefly squeezed in there that I don t really see what the po [...]

    10. Tressa on said:

      Don t know why I finished this book All this conspiracies and grand plots and great villains became boring and indistinguishable Mainly because each time a conflict occurred, it was resolved only with appearance of another interested party With another conspiracy angle And I didn t like main hero mostly because he looked like a marionette being put in game, guided and saved harmed by higher players I like an explanation of elves distant behavior and hero s relationship with his daughter, but not [...]

    11. Mark Smiley on said:

      I read through this book over two different days, separated by a week The first half was exciting and thrilling and intriguing When I came back to it, all those elements were still there but it just was not very exciting and thrilling any It concluded and wrapped up the whole story, but the explanation ran much longer than my interest in the intrigue

    12. Jeffrey on said:

      Swann s fantasy breakthrough is an engaging tale of a reporter s coverage of the death of a dragon in Cleveland which turns into a criminal investigation Elfs with guns, magic and murder mixed together.My word for it fun read

    13. Rick Mullenax on said:

      I read this book because it fused fantasy and my county together Otherwise, I don t think I would have given it a second look Not a bad read though, it s always fun to read about your city and how fantasy creatures run wild in it.

    14. Lara on said:

      Neat premise, very dully executed And the protagonist narrator was such a cipher, I never got a clear mental image of him He was an extremely average White Male Protagonist who managed to make investigating the death of a dragon boring.

    15. Andrea on said:

      Less emphasis on the fantasy characters and emphasis on the thriller mystery political machinations which made for a very different book than I normally read The idea of how modern America would react to a portal to a fantasy realm opening up in downtown Cleveland is an interesting one

    16. Roger Eschbacher on said:

      Detective thriller meets high fantasy as a political beat reporter investigates the death of a dragon in modern day Ohio Overall, a fun and satisfying read.

    17. Larry Wegman on said:

      An enjoyable detective journalist story in which the fantasy realm has broken into Cleveland.

    18. Shinyfox on said:

      3.5 stars.I really liked the idea behind this book, but all of the conspiracy theories just got wound up so tight became jumbled and ended up confusing me.

    19. Karl on said:

      This is a fine fantasy with a touch of mystery The first book in a new series Hope their are several to come.
