  2. Finished reading September 29th 2017DNF at 49% 238 pages The valuable lesson you should have learned, was that evil comes in many guises, not always visible to everyone A copy of this book was kindly provided to me by the author in exchange for an honest review Thank you view spoiler It s easy to say I have a weak spot for any story involving dragons as they are my favorite of mythical creatures This story had me at the title, because how could I resist a new fantasy series where dragons play su [...]

  3. Unique Fun Humorous A little quirky with a side of dark and dangerous Bentwhistle the Dragon in a Threat from the Past by Paul Cude puts a whole new slant on those dragons that are living among us Because, they do, right I admit it, I have never read about dragons in this light, and I was completely enthralled with how normal they are as they move among humans while in human form and yet, have their own world where, they can look like dragons There is also something sinister afoot and Bentwhistl [...]

  4. When I first picked this book up my initial thoughts were that I had probably never read anything quite like it before Upon finishing Brentwhistle the Dragon I can confirm that I was correct I like to be exposed to different styles and genres because, as far as I m concerned, that s what reading is all about This book was another first for me I wondered how a story about dragons that lived alongside humans would work and how sport could come into it too, but I can say that it all fitted together [...]

  5. Bentwhistle the Dragon in A Threat from the Past by Paul Cude is using a highly original idea and makes it the centre of a very entertaining adventure story for young adults and those young at hearts In times of Eragon and The Hobbit many of us older adults love a good dragon story just as well as the younger ones and I am sure most people who pick up this book will appreciate Cude s excellent effort in that regard.Most of the story however is surprisingly set in present day and not in the dista [...]

  6. The book starts with a perfect introduction, which is actually a short story happening sometime in the past, when humans weren t so advanced and when dragons tried to help them and control their own The not so short chapter is a perfect mix of magic, mystery, and action I wish the whole book was like that.When the actual story starts the author moves us to the present times, to the Earth we seem to know The thing is, there s a whole world just under our feet The world accessible only to dragons [...]

  7. Paul Cude has written a superbly amusing, fantasy novel, Bentwhistle the Dragon, about a wondrous dragon world existing below the present human one Peter, Richie and Tank are the main dragons in the story who take on human form to infiltrate our supposedly superior, friendly world We discover secret passages between each world, learn everything there is to know about those fascinating dragons, and take comfort in the fact that they are actually protective of humans and not those bad tempered, tr [...]

  8. This book was such a juvenile read and I don t mean it in the sense that it s written for kids, I mean it reads like it was written by a kid I couldn t get through this book fast enough, I read as fast as Usain Bolt going for the last chicken nugget the part in quotes is actually in the book like making a reference in a book that no kid in 10 years time will understand especially an analogy as stupid as that one.I can see why this one was free on.

  12. My reviewWhen the author contacted me to review his book, I was a bit skeptical to read it because truth be told, the cover isn t very attractive However, I realized I wasn t being fair so I decided to put my first impression aside and give this book a chance.There are several things that I didn t like about this book The first was the slow pacing I kept putting this book down because I had a really hard time getting into the story I didn t like how flashbacks were used for the world building an [...]

  14. When I first read the reviews on this book I was skeptical to say the least, I pictured children s bedtime story which a happy ending I am surprised to say that I fell in love with the dragons in this book and didn t really want to put it down Sometimes it s nice to get in touch with your inner child.Imagine a world beneath your feet full of dragons who have lived with the sole purpose of safe guarding and leading human kind to a higher level of conciseness while maintaining their secret existen [...]

  18. So I got to 52% of this book, and I ve decided that s it I m giving up.The story concept and plot actually seem quite interesting My problem with it is that the pacing is, in a word, terrible The book is long, as in really long, with chapters spanning hundreds of screens, and each one seems to get longer than the rest Don t get me wrong I enjoy long books sometimes, if everything in them is essential to the enjoyment of the story But that s just not the case with this book There s way too much b [...]

  21. I received a copy of this book directly from the author publisher in exchange for an honest review.I tried to get into this book It sat on my TBR list for two years while I picked it up, set it aside, picked it up again, set it aside again I just couldn t get into it I m not a huge fan of high fantasy, to begin with, but it was clear from the outset that I was going to have a problem mostly with the way the book was written To be honest, the writing was weak There was a lot of the author telling [...]

  22. I ve seen buzz out there in social media for Bentwhistle the Dragon by Paul Cude I read the blurb, thought it sounded interesting, and gave it a read Below are my thoughts Synopsis from the author Ever been addicted Most people have at some point, but it was different for these three They d become addicted to their respective sports hockey, lacrosse and rugby What s wrong with that Nothing, apart from the fact they re DRAGONS, living in the present day, in a world in which dragons disguised as h [...]

  25. I really rated this book 3.5 to 4 stars Let me start off by saying that I m pretty sure I ve only read one book about dragons, so far The fact that this book is about dragons is what drew me to it in the first place Cude s take on dragons is definitely a unique one and the whole style of this book is different from what I have read in the past I did have trouble with rating it though and that is because I had quite a few mixed feelings while reading this book I started out intrigued and excited [...]

  26. 3.5 Stars Originally posted on citygirlscapes.I ve said this plenty before, but I am so bad for judging books by their covers I have to admit, when Paul Cuddy approached me to read Bentwhistle the Dragon in A Threat from the Past, the first book in his series Bentwhistle the Dragon series, I was a bit caught up on the cover But the story seemed really unique and different and that is what ultimately drew me in.I don t read a lot of real fantasy, so I wasn t sure what I was in for, which was actu [...]

  27. I do like dragon books I never thought that would be a sentence I d type, but it s true I do like them a lot I think it s because these fantasy books just seem to take world building to another level everything gets creative, complex and extravagant, much like many dragons lives.Peter was an interesting character He wasn t the most thrilling main character ever, but I liked him enough, and thought his character development throughout the book was great I definitely warmed up to him as the book [...]

  28. First thing, I would actually rate this book 3.5 stars.I really enjoyed a lot of aspects of this book The thought of a hidden society of dragons secretly helping to guide the course of humanity is very interesting I found Peter to be a strong character and really enjoyed the roles of Tank and Richie as well, in fact Tank was probably my favorite of the three even though he wasn t as prominent I thought there were a couple of pacing issues to be found mainly with the in depth explanation of the f [...]
