"A Saga of the Dragons. A noble theme here, a worthy one. You are about to enter a full, magical, special world, and you're lucky, believe me. Set forth - Delzer has laid this journey out as few can, and wonders truly await you." (Review words by Don Skiles) Ever wonder what happened to the Dragons? Delgotha begins to show you where the huge wheel of destruction starts to turn as the engines of doom rip to life with a fire powered broken heart. It's a heavy dark story of many things, even things you as the reader may have faced in real life. "To remember us Dragons, changes are in order. A War, and a Darkness are coming, are you ready?" --- DELGOTHA

Jan 8, 2013UPDATE: Thank You To All My Readers and for the emails and letters I have received, as they mean a lot to me. I especially enjoy the letters of continued encouragement and a passion for my work and to ignore the person(s) who made up bad reviews in an attempt to dismay me. I promise you I have a dragon's heart and these words of disrespectful people fall upon my ears lost in the sound of rushing air, as I fly across the night's sky of dreams.
Sep 1, 2011Hello, I was given this book as a Birthday Gift from my family who all know that I love fantasy and have gone through pretty much everything out there. I must say this is a very special book! Its cover art is very pulling on the eyes and mind, (yes this book makes you think about stuff in real life) I had other gifts, but honestly I couldn't put this book down and I hadn't really started reading it yet. But when I did, let me tell you this reads different. One reviewer here said it was not mordern Enlish, but it isn't like Old dark ages English either, it's different and honestly I believe this is how Mr. Delzer has seized the voice of a dragon, come on seriously like Delgotha would speak perfect English? Once I started reading, it does have a slow start, but needed, I couldn't put it down. The Winds of Death, chapter 3, is where this baby takes off, chapters 1 and 2 are very well done as well, but it's all intro, needed as I have read this book at least 6 times! Awesome Book! That is... More > why I gave it 5 stars, it's an original in story, a Dragon telling you what happened and Why we think Dragons are mythical? Come on, that's awesome! And yes there is an under story here about betrayal and I agree I have no way of telling where or how it's going to end, I seriously doubt it involves tea, it's heavy and dark. This is what we should have had not H.P. Although, Harry was very good too, this is a so way better read for adults. When I was reading it on the tube someone asked about it, and I said wizards, and dragons, she then said oh like Harry Potter? I said yeah just like that except Harry would have been killed along time ago in this book. I'm just saying it is a different, heavier, darker, and a much richer story that is original. And I will Agree with Ms. Willows, I don't believe that any of bad reviews here are real ones, they look like they had read a bit of the sample chapters of the book and then forked out garbage and striked a personal attack on Mr. Delzer, they all read the same as if a single person or two wrote them and if you read alot like me you can tell. Any one who has read this book would agree the bad reviewers had not read the full book. Also, LOL they make fun of his abilities in English and they themselves not only had a million wrong words either spelled wrong, or used wrong, but LOL they spelled English with a lowercase 'e'. Probably a freaky ex that's all I'm saying. Sorry didn't mean to be this long. , BUY THIS BOOK!!! Mr. Delzer 5 words: Great Job, Book Two Please!< Less
Feb 2, 2010READERS LOOKING FOR A GREAT FANTASY DO NOT PASS THIS ONE The words in this book make you think, one of my favorite passages is found on page 227 at the end of Chapter 14 Death of the Undead King, "This is what they didn't want the future Kings of Man to bare witness to, not to the demise of the undead leaders, but to their own demise of being led by fools who call themselves wizards, and even worse; fools who call themsleves Kings." The Kings of War deal with a lot and it is well strung together describing everything, places, the characters, Dragons, the Undead Necromancers, Warlocks, and much, much more! The wizard staves are of a great design, I can picture them from the way Delzer recasts them into my heart. I have had dreams about the world of Delgotha, so it does a great deal for the price. The names of the characters look harder then they are, Ghomet for example I thought ended with a 'met' sort of sound but in the character list and how to say them its pronounced with... More > a 'may' ending, after reading that as well as the others its NO SWEAT. I will say that the super tough ones, are mentioned only once or twice, yet their prescence is still present, the War in this book is awesome to read, it's named after the sub title of the book, THE KINGS OF WAR, the hugest chapter in the entire book, it's 41 awesome pages that keep you going! The amount of magic and damage delt, the combat between the living, undead, magic casters, and mortals is off the hook, oh and don't get me started on the dragons! There are many dragons in this book, what they look like, where they came from, names, and places, far out there!!! I wished there was perhaps something more on them, but from the way Delzer leaves you hanging at the end, I think in book 2 its probably going to be a lot more about the Dragons, afterall it would have to be as this is a story about Delgotha telling a writer, (could the writer be Delzer, see makes you think) what happened tot he dragons and why we think they are myth. This book also makes me wonder how it all ends, how does Delgotha know events to tell the writer that he wasn't present for, and what was Razinthall, (Razz-In-Thall) smiling at in the beginning when he left his room? These are threads we all know, but they are there, many writers now of fantasy sort of start them but then answer them right away, or you guess where its going. Delgotha doesn't do that, it lets you think, but you aren't lost either. I have no clue and I am loving this book for it, where its going to wrap up. It reads that this is an Epic fantasy that's a many-dimensioned Saga its no joke either. There's also something I think other have tip-toed around on, the wrods of Delgotha in the To The Reader, reads like a self help, something I have never heard of, its a fan-freaking-tastic Fantasy, AND a self help too? YUPE I think it is. How neat is it that someone wrote about their real life pain and wrapped it all up in a fantasy blanket! The Delgotha webpage here in LULU tells that Delgotha is about betrail, the path of over coming, and forgiveness, lessons we all need to learn I think. BUY THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank You Darrin for this book and PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE KEEP THEM COMING< Less
Feb 2, 2010My Mom bought this book for me to read while I was getting better in the hospital home now, and I have read this book several times and I was betrayed by my best friend who stabbed me in the back, anyway I am feeling this sort of story coming through Delgotha and it helps me, strange I know this is, but like the words from Delgotha, "Not all Dragons are good,..." he is ever so correct on that, but no one ever put it like that, Darrin has a way with words and honestly I thought I knew everything about fantasy being a fan, but he brings in something new, other then making me feel good about myself, bringing about new ideas to Delgotha to add to the fantasy lover, there is this feeling from his words almost as if you are reading something missing from our history books. Hard to place, but all in all I agree this book rocks, and I am reading this more then I am my Harry Potter books, which were with me at the hospital and here in my room, I love them still, but this is something... More > that is on a totally different scale, (No Pun intended) I don't have very many friends, but those I do have I am telling them to buy this one, God I wish they would make a movie on Delgotha!!!< Less
Feb 2, 2010Doesn't the cover just speak to you? It does as does the rest of the book. I have found this to be a wonderful story, well written, great art, the characters are unique, what an imagination Mr. Delzer has. The bad reviews in here do read alike by the way, I find it odd that so many have given it 5 stars and the bad reviews left either nothing or two, those are people that either don't like Mr. Delzer, or they themselves are RATED R, as one of the bad reviews gave. I looked on the Delgotha Store front Book II: The Slaves of Wizards is coming and I am so excited to read it. I do think the price is a bit high for this book but its 331 pages and if you know lulu its hard to make a book here cheap with that many pages, I can tell however that Mr. Delzer tried, but pointless, I WOULD BUY THIS BOOK AND OTHERS KNOWING WHAT I DO NOW FOR THIS PRICE NO PROBLEM!!! Final note: Simply put THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST FANTASY STORIES I HAVE EVER READ. Shame its not put out by a bigger Publishing Firm... More > that probably rejected it, HUGE MISTAKE!!!!!< Less
