Kurzbeschreibung

25. September 2009
Four young friends in the tiny town of Antioch, North Carolina find themselves swept up into a centuries old conflict between a Chinese sorcerer and a Taoist Immortal, with only weeks to prepare for a battle that will test their martial arts skills against the sorcerer's trained assassins. They must draw on everything they have learned, and trust in their teachers - the Immortal himself, Ming Tao Shih, and Grandfather Chen, a master of Shaolin boxing - and the magical world created to give them the time and the training they will need. A young adult fantasy adventure, Dragons of Antioch weaves the myths and legends of traditional Chinese kung fu into the lives of the four, detailing their training in both Shaolin and Wudang boxing, and in the skills that have bordered on the edge of the fantastic in traditional Chinese martial arts training for centuries. The result is Harry Potter meets Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon in a wild ride of humor, action and adventure!

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Daniel Middleton has trained in the Korean martial art of Kuk Sool Won for over thirty years, an is a published author whose work is regularly featured in Black Belt Magazine and Tae Kwon Do Times. He currently holds the rank of 6th degree black belt in Kuk Sool Won and has been teaching martial arts for over twenty-five years. Although training in Kuk Sool Won since 1976, he began his training in 1973 in the southern Chinese system of Li Gar, and has studied a number of other martial arts as well, including Tien Shan Pai, Northern Shaolin, Taiji, Xingyi and Bagua. It is this varied martial arts background that brings a feeling of authority and authenticity to the martial arts described in Dragons of Antioch.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Terrific first novel! 27. Dezember 2009
Von James Britenburg - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
As a student of martial arts and a fan of dragons, fantasy and the Carolinas I thought this was a wonderful book. The histories presented were dead-on accurate, the scenes easlily visualized and the dialogue absolutely delightful. A great read for young and old alike.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Not just for martial arts devotees! 26. Februar 2010
Von Sarah Shumpert - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Martial Arts devotees will undoubtedly enjoy The Dragons of Antioch by first time novelist, Daniel Middleton, but I encourage other readers, like myself, who are less acquainted with traditional Chinese martial arts to give this book a try. The exciting action and character-driven humor woven throughout this tale of four young teens from North Carolina carried me through an engaging story, including some of the more technical and historical passages. The historical passages are strongest when told through flashback sequences where the reader experiences Chinese culture, first-hand, through the eyes and ears of the characters. I was even inspired by this novel to explore more about Eastern philosophies and have continued reading on this subject.

What I enjoyed most about this novel, however, was standing alongside the four likeable protagonists as they begin a transformational journey -- not only from ordinary kids in a sleepy town to skilled martial artists engaged in the ultimate battle, but also the timeless journey from the worlds of childhood to adulthood. Indeed, the overarching theme of this novel is one of transformation - sometimes interpreted literally through magical transfigurations and shifts in time and space, while other times realized through the relatable transformation the teen protagonists go through as they begin to define their own identities. The story arc of one of the boys in particular, Chandler, left me wanting more of the internal life of these teens, and I have hopes that the author will continue to explore the growth of these characters in future installments. The journey of the female protagonist, Amry, in particular, is one that I look forward to following because she is a rarity in young adult literature as a strong female character whose strength is defined in her own terms and not by her relationship to the male characters in the story. This is a novel I wish had been available years ago when I was a high school librarian because of its potential appeal to teenage boys as well as teenage girls longing for a genuinely strong and independent female role model.

I recommend The Dragons of Antioch and look forward to future installments!

(This review is based on a first printing with some typographical errors which, in no way, detracted from by enjoyment of the story. I'm confident such errors will be corrected for future printings.)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Captivating Martial Arts Novel 4. Januar 2010
Von S. Miskin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I thoroughly enjoyed Daniel Middleton's new novel. It takes place in present day North Carolina, and four young teenagers are the Dragons, but involves an ancient Chinese feud. There is a really evil bad guy, exciting martial arts, a few magical techniques, and lots of excitement. I am a huge fan of the Dragons, and am looking forward to the promised sequel. I think other martial arts fans will love this story, too.
4.0 von 5 Sternen This would make a great film, too! 7. Februar 2013
Von MICHAEL RIDGEWELL - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
The Dragons of Antioch is a fun read because it mixes ancient martial arts traditions and lore with a cast of modern-day teenagers. The story flows nicely and gives you a sense of the magical martial arts world with its colorful, deadly history while moving the story along through the perceptions of teens who quickly adapt to their changing circumstances and take the challenges head on. I was excited to learn that there was a sequel because I really got to like the characters in the story. I recommend this book for all ages.

I would love to see this made into a movie; it has such appeal to a wide range of people and martial arts is a HUGE market!

5.0 von 5 Sternen My Take on It... 30. Juli 2012
Von Robby Dooley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Funny enough, I recieved my copy of The Dragons of Antioch from Mr. Middleton the second time I met him when he taught in the place of one of my teachers for a day. As a man of many talents, the first time I met him, he was writing his first novel and the second time he allowed me to read his copy of the book, which to this day I still need to return, and it basically was a really good... no, Great book that mixes the best of two distant worlds and keeps the reader hooked throughout the entire story. As his first book, Mr. Middleton did exceptionally well compared to authors that forget to proof read for story-ruining errors.
