Review: False Idols (The Dragon Lords #2) by Jon Hollins

RATING: 4.5/5


Guardians of the Galaxy meets The Hobbit in this rollicking fantasy adventure series. 

The Dragons who once ruled over the land are dead.

The motley crew that stumbled through that revolution are rich and praised as saviors.

Everyone gets to live happily ever after, right?


Well, it might have worked out that way if the dragons in Kondorra had been the only ones. If they hadn’t been just the tip of the spear about to fall upon the whole world…


OMG THIS IS SO GOOD! Definitely better than the first book!

This story took place 12 months after the incidents in the first book (Fool’s Gold) whereby we follow the main characters Will, Lette, Balur, Quirk and Firkin in their subsequent adventures. After the heist in the first book, each characters thought that they could move on with their lives with the gold that they have stolen from the Dragon in Kondorra. What they don’t know is that there are more dragons outside the city of Kondorra. All these dragons were planning to get rid of the old Gods and make themselves the new Gods to be worshipped by the citizens of Avarra.

So we follow the main characters’ journey in stopping the dragons’ plan whereby they worked together with the old Gods to do so. But in the end, they themselves were betrayed by one of the old Gods! I really did not see this coming and I am always very intrigued by unforeseeable plot twists!

Jon Hollins maintained its distinguished writing style with so much honour element but still maintained the detailed descriptions of the inner conflicts of each characters (especially Lette and Quirk) and the complicated relationships or interactions between characters. The pacing of the story is perfect and there’s so much fun in reading this book!

A strong 4.5/5 star rating from me. I started the third book of this series right away after reading the major cliffhanger at the end of the chapter and I can’t wait to know what will happen to the fate of all the major characters!
