My Thoughts: This is the first time I have read a book in an interview format like this. I love dragons though, so I was up for the challenge. I ended up loving the format of this book. The interviews were interesting, as was the information surrounding them.
I enjoyed how, although we weren't getting the full scene spelled out, or all the internal thoughts of the characters, I felt involved. The subjects had personality. From just brief chapter long interviews, Kraus was able to give them life. I could feel their internal struggle with revealing things that hurt or that could get them in trouble. It was really amazing.
This is a short and to the point book. It's an introduction to the drakes, or dragons. I loved how it touched on so much, from the government reactions to scientists, to just everyday people. I finished it ready to read the next book. I think that if people enjoy dragons or post apocalyptic books they will love this book. I would consider this a must read for them.

Professionally trained as a Systems Engineer, Mike has been a writer his entire life, spending his summers as a child writing of daring adventures and epic science-fiction exploits in a college-ruled notebook instead of playing video games. That love of writing stayed with him until it finally burst forth in the form of "Final Dawn," a thrilling post-apocalyptic series released in an episodic format that has sold over 70,000 copies and counting. Final Dawn was followed by two other stand-alone books, "Prip'Yat" and "Cold Springs," and Mike's latest work is a new five-part series titled "Drake: An Oral History of the Dragon War." Mike currently lives in Mississippi with his wife and three children and spends his days writing (of course), programming and tinkering on his PC.
