    1. Masters & Slayers is the first book in the Tales of Starlight series for adults by Bryan Davis. This series is the slightly more ramped up version of the Dragons of Starlight series, written for teens. My daughters had recently read the first of their series and were excited about the plot, so I dove into my corresponding book. At first, it seemed I’d entered in the middle of a book, or picking up where a previous one had left off. I was a little lost in the first few chapters, and had a h [...]

    2. This one is definitely aimed toward specific readers; unfortunately, I am not one of them. Just didn't stir my Kool-Aid. The quality of the storytelling was good - engaging with a smooth pace - but there were [subjective] elements I would've had to actively overlook to enjoy the complete story.While Masters & Slayers offered a well-written albeit familiar plot, most characters were way too black and white; the "good" guys were SOOO good they felt like characters, not real people.The multiple [...]

    3. MASTERS & SLAYERSTales of Starlight #1By Bryan DavisMasters & Slayers follows the same basic plot as Davis’s Starlighter (Dragons of Starlight) but it follows the adult members of the story – Adrian Masters and Marcelle, instead of the teenage members.Masters & Slayers also begins where Starlighter began with the Blood Tournament. But Masters & Slayers is more grown up as it deals with more of the political under currents that make Major Four what it is. Yet the mission is th [...]

    4. Mr. Davis reminded me once again why I love his writing. With intriguing, vibrant characters and a fast-paced plot, this book fulfilled (and even surpassed at points) my expectations. For those who have read the "Dragons of Starlight" series, you'll be excited to discover what happens to Adrian and Marcelle. This is the other side of the adventure.Although the stories have significantly different arcs, the plots could be nearly combined into one book. However, I do not believe that it detracts f [...]

    5. 3 1/2 stars. Decent sci fi/ fantasy book that gets better as it goes. It does start slowly but if you give it time it does grow on you. The long and short of the story is you follow Adrian and Marvell's as they go to a Dragon ruled world to free their human slaves and bring them back to their planet. Some of the secondary characters are not very interesting but the main characters plus Cassabrie are well written and they carry your interest into novel 2 of the series.

    6. Holy crap. Never have I been this attached to a romantic scenery before. So much to anticipate in the 2nd book. Kudos to Bryan Davis.

    7. I found it a little slow to get into, but really enjoyed it overall. I've read the companion series, and quite enjoyed reading about Adrian's experiences on Starlight.

    8. Readers of the young adult fantasy "Starlighter" will recognize the opening scene of Bryan Davis’s upcoming "Masters and Slayers" — that feeling of “we’ve been here before” is more than just deja vu. "Masters and Slayers" is the first book in the “Tales of Starlight” series published by AMG/Living Ink, a fantasy series for adults that shares a world, characters, and an overarching plot with Zondervan’s YA series “Dragons of Starlight.”This time, as the book opens in an arena [...]

    9. See my profile for my star rating system.Thank you to AMG publishers for providing me with a digital copy of the book for review.My Thoughts:Fantasy is my favorite genre of writing, so I have been looking forward to reading Masters and Slayers. From the opening pages of the story, the tale captured my attention, making the book nearly impossible to set aside. (It’s a good thing I started reading it on a day off rather than on a lunch break!)I found the narrative interesting and creative. The c [...]

    10. Masters and Slayers by Bryan DavisAdrian Masters was taught by his father to always respect women and never raise his sword against them. Marcelle fights with a sword better than most men, she fights with vengeance. The fighting matches are good, and yes, entertaining, especially when she can embarrass her old friend Adrian about his old man’s way of thinking. Chivalry is dead and it doesn’t matter. If chivalry existed her mother would still be alive. Adrian would be the best swordsman if it [...]

    11. Well this book wasn't that fantastic, and seemed a little sketchy to me in some areas.But the main theme in the book wasIs very very good.And that slavery is bad. Very. Very. Bad.*Scratches head and looks thoughtful*Yep, that about sums it up. I would have written a longer review, but as I was writing the draft, the computer shut down and I lost all my progress except a very early save. We're talking less than a quarter. So I just haven't got the heart to try and replicate it.One thing I had a p [...]

    12. This is one of those books where I feel like if I get too excited and type away, I'll give way too much away. It was a busy time at work when I read this, and I'm even thinking it was a good thing 'cos the excitement was rather enjoyable. It will most definitely make you think "One more chapter before I go to sleep" as you see the clock hit 4am, especially if you're the "Dragons? Count me in!" kind of person like I am.This is the story of young warriors who set out to save the humans kidnapped b [...]

    13. Note: There is another set of books out there titled The Dragons of Starlight Series. It's by the same author, but from some of the research I've done, it looks like that series is more YA while this novel is for adults. With that being said - I loved this book :) I have to admit to being a little bias though, because I am a huge Eragon fan - and I adore books about dragons. So if you do too, this book will make you so happy, lol. The basic storyline is about this idea that there is another worl [...]

    14. Disclaimer: I received this book free from AMG Publishers in exchange for an honest review. I did not receive any form of compensation.I really like good fantasy fiction. Them seemed very promising. However, I really had trouble diving into this book like I would have normally.Apparently, there is an entirely other series written by this author that is geared towards tweens & teens. This book is an adult tie in to that series. Instead of just writing a brand new series for adults, he decided [...]

    15. As usual, Mr. Davis does not disappoint. This is the adult (no sex, just grown up characters) 1st book in the Tales of Starlight series, a sorta-sequel to The Starlighter, which is the young-adult 1st book in the same story-line. If you have read The Starlighter, you will be able to jump right into this one and it takes right off. If you have not, it may take a few pages to get into it -- but it is well worth those few pages. IN any case, an excellent fantasy novel with interesting characters &a [...]

    16. "Masters & Slayers" is a fantasy novel that is a companion to his "Starlighter" young adult fantasy novel. Both are set in the same world and follow the same events (from different viewpoints), but I highly recommend that you read this novel before "Starlighter." The characters in this book are driving the events and know what's going on, so reading this book first will make "Starlighter" make a lot more sense, add suspense to it, and overall make it more enjoyable. On the other hand, there [...]

    17. NOOOOO!!! My book just ended and I wasn't ready for it to be over yet! This was another outstanding book by Bryan Davis. Each book I read by him is as impressive as the one I read before. He has a way with creating the world he puts the characters in that brings the story to life. The characters are people you want to know, and when the book ends.I can't believe the book ended!! I have got to get my hands on the next book and fast, I MUST know what happens. This book brings together fantasy, rel [...]

    18. Very interesting book. I'm not sure where or when I picked this book up but it was on my bookshelf so I read it. This is the first in a series, however I only found a first and second book so unsure if there will be a third. "Masters & Slayers" is a tale of Adrian Masters who has been trained as a warrior and defender of his land mainly women and children. He finds a portal to another realm where his people are slaves for dragons who mercilessly make them mine for fuel while keeping them sub [...]

    19. In Masters and Slayers, you join characters Marcelle and Adrian on a heart rending adventure. Traveling through two different planets, their story is constantly packed with excitement and exhilaration. At selective intervals, characters from the book Starlighter make their own appearance in the eyes of the new acquaintances the book has given us, as well as the mysterious starlighter, Cassabrie. Dragon slaying, sword fighting, damsels in distress, and children in need of rescue all make their co [...]

    20. Wonderful as always. This trilogy fills in the small story gaps within the Dragons of starlight series, while creating a story all its own. This trilogy is slightly more adult in nature than any of Bryan Davis' other dragon books, simply because it deals with characters who are young adults verses the teenagers of his other stories. But, even though it deals with adult characters, Mr.Davis still stays true to his themes of chivalry, character, truth, and deals with ideas in such a way that it is [...]

    21. Masters and Slayers, the first of the Tales of Starlight series, has earned a prominent place on my “favorite books” shelf, right next to Starlighter. While Starlighter follows the adventures of teenaged Jason Masters, Masters and Slayers is about his older brother Adrian as he sets out to locate a legendary portal and bring the Lost Ones home. Bryan Davis’s take on this story is truly unique. Flawlessly, he weaves these two series into one tale of excitement and inspiration. While both St [...]

    22. Although this is the 1st of the series the opening is all too familiar to the reads of "Starlighter". It starts off the same, though with the older adults. But this book has more in store for you. It has a whirlwind events full of danger and suspense. The honorable and caring characters are flawed but in a good way. The world setting is set in many worlds linked by portals. The plot and pace set a page turner, that doesn't miss a beat. The writing style is great. Overall it was a great book. Onl [...]

    23. This book captured my imagination from the very beginning. The story focuses on young Adrian Masters. A master swordsman, and the essence of chivalry. Set out to free the slaves from their draconic rule; while the political powers that be, do everything in their power to hide the truth from the masses.The thing that really made me love this book was the fact that Adrian never faltered in his choices. He made mistakes, but always owned up to them, he always acted out of love. His character really [...]

    24. This took me so long to finish which kinda irritates me. I definitely did like Masters & Slayers though more than the Dragons of Starlight series but I wish I read this series along with it. I feel like people who haven't read the Dragons of Starlight series would be a little lost. I can't wait until I start the next book.I did like the characters BUT I felt like the heroes came across as little too perfect. & I did get a little confused and would have to go back and reread what I had pr [...]

    25. I am ashamed. I DNF. I admit defeat. I'm just not interested enough to pick the book up again. I don't even know why I'm not interested? I just don't feel involved with the characters or the plot and I just honestly have so many better books to be reading. I'm so sorry that I couldn't finish it, but I legit just didn't even care.I feel like it could've been good, I mean dragons. Dragons are cool. So why didn't I like this???Sometimes I just don't even understand this curious little brain of mine [...]

    26. Wow! It's so cool to have read the same story from a different angle. I'm not sure--this book might just rival my love for the teen Starlighter series! I loved Adrian and his interactions with others. The question of who had killed Marcelle's mother kept me guessing, as did Cassabrie's role in the story. On one hand, she seemed to want to help, but there WERE a few times when her loyalties kept me guessing. Bryan Davis has outdone himself, and I look forward to reading the next book in his lates [...]

    27. The choreography of the fight scenes needed editing. They were sloppy at best and sometimes hard to follow. The story itself was mediocre and portrayed the slave driving dragons as imbeciles. The human heroes were equally droll and their inept attempts at saving the humans failed to engage me. As the novel closed, a pathetic hook failed to draw me into the next adventure.

    28. An amazing story of courage and sacrifice. I wish we had more of these kinds of books. A story of Adrian Masters and his quest to the lost slaves on the dragon planet of Dracon. Enemies and betrayal, a great story!!!

    29. An excellent Christian/clean fantasy book for older teens and young adults. Some more mature themes are discussed in the book. The book has a nice blend of science fiction and fantasy elements. (Read more at my blog, thebookhoundchristianspecfic)

    30. This book revealed many secrets from starlighter, yet it made some new ones. The characters were amazing. We met new characters, yet we don't exactly know their goal. This was a great novel by Bryan Davis.
