Amazon is running a sale on Dragon Blade - now only $3.82 - no idea how long it will last.

Swords forged by dragon magic. Ancient rivalries flaring into all-out war. Dragon Riders caught up in a clash of hidden powers. A world hangs in the balance.

Dragon Blade, the second book in J.D. Hallowell's War of the Blades, is the epic conclusion to the story begun in Dragon Fate.

Delno Okonan, his draconic bond-mate, Geneva, and their allies among the Dragons and Riders are once again caught up in events controlled by unseen forces. They must uncover the real secrets behind the death of a senior Dragon Rider and the sudden rise of the Roracks, ancient enemy of dragons and men, to defeat a threat that could destroy them all and leave the world they know forever altered.

JD,

Welcome again to the Book Bazaar and congratulations on your new book!

KindleBoards is a Kindle fan and reader forum. As you browse KindleBoards, keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed in the Book Bazaar. (You've posted your book thread in the right place; this is just our standard welcome that we place in all book threads. :))

A brief recap of our rules follows:

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then. You may modify the latest post to reflect new information.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts outside the Book Bazaar constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post. For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread: Authors: KindleBoards Tips & FAQ.

All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum: http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,36.0.html. Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

Thanks for being part of KindleBoards! Feel free to send us a PM if you have any questions.

I extend my deepest thanks and appreciation to all of the readers who have helped keep Dragon Blade in the top 20 for Kindle Hot New Releases in Epic Fantasy for the past two weeks.  It's wonderful to see so many people enjoying the books and sharing them with their friends.

As always, I'm happy to discuss the books and answer questions.

In addition to re-appearing on the Amazon.com Epic Fantasy Bestsellers lists for Kindle and for all books this week, Dragon Blade also made its debut on the Epic Fantasy lists on Amazon.ca, and it continues to draw more four- and five-star reviews and ratings, both on Amazon and Goodreads.

It is good to see so many people reading and enjoying the books, and sharing the word about them.

Dragon Blade picked up its first Amazon UK review this week, and it's a 5-star that starts out like this:

"As the sequel to Dragon Fate, this book Dragon Blade had a lot to live up to and it succeeds very well...."

You can read the rest of the review, as well as the 19 others from the US site, on Amazon.co.uk.
