Kurzbeschreibung

TORBREK…AND THE DRAGON VARIATION: an adventure story with daring deeds, dragons, friends, foes and romance – and no darned elves.

When Tor saves the Princess from the terrifying, fire-breathing dragon and delivers her to the handsome knight she is destined to marry, nothing is quite as it seems; the dragon is overweight and hasn’t breathed fire for years; the Princess and her supposed suitor don’t hit it off; and Tor shouldn’t be in the rebel cavalry at all because she’s a woman disguised as a man. Which doesn’t help when she is attracted to a fellow soldier…

Meanwhile, studying the records of the legendary Hundred Knights, cold-blooded agent Corfe unearths a secret about Tor that even she is unaware of, a secret that makes ruthless King Skardroft very interested in her, and will change the outcome of the battle for the kingdom.

Full length novel: 92,000 words, by the author of REMIX and REPLICA.

Tor, short for Torbrek, or more accurately, Torbraya, since the main protagonist is a girl (no spoilers here,) was raised by her grandfather, Attalor, to become a Knight, one of the Hundred. They lived poor but proud, and Tor held the sword before she learned how to say "sword". Fast-forward to her 18th year, and we see her as a member of a rebel "Loyalist" army, serving in the cavalry, and hiding her gender.

Tor goes on a quest to rescue a princess guarded by a fearsome dragon. Xantilor, the dragon, turns out to be a pretty reasonable chap. This is when Tor's adventures begin in earnest.

"Torbrek...and the Dragon Variation" by Lexi Revellian doesn't present us with caricature characters who are either good or evil. Well, perhaps with a possible exception of the Corfe, king Skardroft's spy master. Instead, we see shades of gray, how one person could be good to some people and terrible towards others. Scardroft and, to some extent, Jervaid, are good examples of this, and as such, are much more memorable characters for it.

The book reminds me slightly of "Alanna" by Tamora Pierce and has a slight feeling of "Berserker," the anime at the beginning. Nothing as bloody, obviously, "Torbrek" is a light read, just something in presenting the main heroine and the circumstances she found herself in. If someone mentions "Star wars," on account of the kingdom taken over by a tyrant and a mysterious order of knights opposing him, I would like to say: this is as common a premise as could be; not like Lucas invented it. It just works.

Good, light YA fantasy read.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The female protagonist is written as heroic without making her unbelievably skilled or far superior to everyone else 7. Januar 2017
Von David Artman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Not a high fantasy in the Tolkien tradition, but none the less enjoyable for all of that. The female protagonist is written as heroic without making her unbelievably skilled or far superior to everyone else. She has her faults and shortcomings too, like a real person. The dragon is written matter of factly, with humor and wit (it did make me wonder--do any other mythical creatures or beings populate this world?). I was very impressed with the character of the main villain--like all of us, he does not see himself as evil, and has a definite, softer side. A highly entertaining book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Lighthearted fantasy read 17. Mai 2012
Von myrtleturtle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
"Torbrek" is a very enjoyable, light fantasy read. The characters are interesting and although it doesn't deviate from the fantasy formula there are enough twists to make it fun. The reason I give it only 4 stars is because I felt the author didn't take enough advantage of the twists. I thought the relationship between Torbrek and Skardroft was very interesting and I wish that had been more developed. I also found that the resolution of Torbrek's secret was far too simple and quick. Again, the author could have taken better advantage to develop the situation. Overall, though, it is a fun, exciting adventure tale.

5.0 von 5 Sternen 4.5 stars 30. Oktober 2013
Von J. Gunnar Grey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Downloaded this light-hearted fantasy novel (with romantic elements) free from Amazon, fell in love while reading the first chapter, and finished the read in two days, to the detriment of my work and sleep schedules. Not just likeable but relatable characters, a believable sort of fairy tale adventure, and a strong plotline even with a bit of a detour down the middle. Normally I'd take off a star for giving a minor character a major role when the book was well along, but the author signalled the move in advance, played it well without much dragging, and kept the reader's eye on the major characters at the same time. Sometimes you just gotta shift the emphasis, and if you do, this is how it's done. Four and a half stars.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Won me over 8. Mai 2012
Von Kyryk - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I was intrigued when this book showed up in the free Kindle book list. I now consider it my great fortune to have been looking at that list that day and downloading this book. While it is not as polished as some fantasy books, I will say that it is among the more enjoyable tellings of a fantasy story I have read this year. Lexi Revellian is an excellent story teller with a particular ability to create memorable characters. I already miss Tor and her comrades, and am hoping that they will be revisited in the second of the books in this trilogy.

If possible I would give this book a 4.5 star rating,and I would recommend it highly to any and all readers.

4.0 von 5 Sternen An enjoyable read 16. Mai 2012
Von D. J. Duran - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I found this book on the Amazon free list and am very glad I did!I was an enjoyable read that I could not put down! Torbrek is trained by a grandfather to become one of the hundred knights. Trobrek goes to rescue a princess and ends up the master of a dragon. There are adventures, an evil conqueror with a sentimental side to him, romanic issues, battles, and a very likeable protagonist. I am ready to read more about Tor and the dragons.
