Publisher's Summary

Carentan, France, 1944 - Ethan Martin, a soldier in the 101st Airborne, is fighting for his life. But soon he will learn what peril truly is when he is ripped from his world and transported to a land of magic, swords, and dragons. And though the Nazis are now far, far away, danger is closer than ever.
The eternal emperor, Shinzan has destroyed the mages. Only a few dragons remain in exile. And now that Ethan - son of Praxis Dragonvein - has returned, he must destroy him as well. Faced with unimaginable power, Ethan has only one hope - to reach the dwarf kingdom of Elyfoss before Shinzan can find him.

Interesting Story but very light on in details.

I enjoyed the book, but the pacing was far too fast. Too many things happen to the character and not enough detail or time is spent setting up the premise. For examlpe this is supposed toe a 17 year old boy fighting in WW2. Bam he's in a Fantasy land and really doesn't question much. He can be stubborn and in denial but it is more as a plot device than how a realistic person would think things through. I did not feel like the character fit his description at all either, at no point does he find any use for his supposed parachute Airborne Division training at all. Not once does it give him an edge over any situation. He might as well have just been an orphaned farm boy for how it felt. The magic system is incredible weak and not well explored, by the main character or by anyone else. The main 'romance' aspects to the book focus on a 13 year old girl crushing really hard on our 17 year old MC and him trying to figure out how to tell her its inappropriate. She also falls madly in love with him out of nowhere, it didn't make a lot of sense.

I'm disappointed - I was really looking forward to this. the premise sounded great but the execution was just lacking. Great performance from the narrator though.

BOY SCOUT

WHY DON'T YOU GO KISS A PIG
The main character is not really the star of the show. He is a pretty boring boy scout. Anderson should have made the 13 year old girl the main character. She has more character than anyone else. I listened to the first half of the book. Other than the portal, the only magic was a guy lighting a fire with his fingers. I heard about dwarfs, elves and mages but saw or heard of none in the first half. There were no dragons either. Maybe they appear in the second half? My experience tells me that any writer who takes over six hours to get interesting is not going to be interesting as a whole.
