Review by: John H. Carroll on Oct. 09, 2013 : star star star star
Lots of action in this culmination to the trilogy. I enjoyed the interactions between the characters. There are strong relationships and friendships throughout. I've always been a big fan of character driven stories. I like to get to know the individuals and love/hate them. Catrin and her friends are definitely likable.

The villain doesn't quite become the archenemy that I expected. There's not enough of his motivation and personality that comes through. He seems more of a politician gone power hungry who never delivers on implied evildoer promise in the end. The other enemies throughout present frequent challenges, with the greatest enemy being nature and power I believe. The peril to Catrin and friends delivers constant suspense, which makes it difficult to put the book down.

Some of the events that happen around Catrin's home while she's gone are a bit confusing and it takes a bit of concentration to keep up with the myriad of details. The world created is filled with sweeping vistas and exotic lands that are exciting for the reader to visit.

The ending comes to a satisfying conclusion for this story, but is left open for the next series and a future that promises great adventure.

Overall, this is an excellent fantasy series. The characters and plot are original. I definitely recommend giving it a read.

Fantastic series. Well written, fast paced and the author pulls you in right from the onset, leaving you wanting more. I happened on the first book in the trilogy by accident but quickly sought out the next two. I'm looking forward to reading the second trilogy (The Balance of Power) which I've just downloaded. Thanks for the escape Brian.

A great instalment of the series . It really grabs you and doesn't let go.I have thoroughly enjoyed reading these books over the last few weeks . Well rounded characters enough description that you feel you know them, No problems knowing exactly where they are , you can picture the scene with ease.I am reading the last book at the moment and have the usual mix of building towards the ending and sadness at the impending finish .

An excellent fantasy series and very well written and put together. What I liked was that the quality of English and grammar was above average on what I have been finding of late. There were therefore no distractions in the way of spelling or grammar mistakes, to take me 'out' of the story.
Looking forward to the next one.

I purchased Dragon Ore after having read the free first two parts of Brian Rathbone's Dawning of Power Trilogy. I love the way, the author draws up his characters and after only a few pages of reading, you get the feeling that you can relate completely to these characters such as Catrin Volker. In this most exiting conclusion, Catrin accompanied by her faithful companions, travels to Greatland and Firstland to battle ancient evils with her ever increasing powers. What follows is a spellbinding story of good versus evil, courage against cowardice, narrow escapes from monstrous seas, volcanic eruptions, dragons coming to her aid at the last moment and finally the defeat of evil. This story takes you away from the stresses of daily life and places you in a magical world that could teach you a thing or two about forgiving your enemies. I highly recommend this book.

This whole series is absolutely spell binding! The author grabs your attention with his characters and storyline and holds your attention until the last page is read. I wish there was a book four!
