The Dragon's Zenith by Jason F Boggs is the conclusion of the Dragon Trilogy, a wonderful meld of epic fantasy and science fiction, following Nelson Jones, a misfit who finds himself pitted against a ruthless, merciless regime of the New Era, headed by Ira Bilis. The New Era has successfully gained control over everything, and its leader, the evil Ira Bilis, has the backing of the executors. But Nelson and his band of misfits, including Alene whom he loves, are out to take them down. But do they stand a chance with the insurmountable odds stacked against them?

This is one of the stories that will entice fans of Robin Hood, a tale in which the marginalized rise up against the ruling class and fight tooth and nail to get justice and find their place in the world. The themes of politics, freedom, justice, and love are written beautifully into the story. I loved the characters. The protagonist is not your run-of-the-mill hero and I was keen to discover how he evolves and morphs into a respectable leader in this spellbinding story. Jason F Boggs does a great job with the world-building, and the elements of the setting are captured in strong descriptions that allow readers to imagine the places and the plight of the maltreated. The characters are well-developed and the author succeeds in making readers hate the villain while adoring the protagonist. The Dragon's Zenith is a compelling story that is well-plotted and explores the sense of justice in a complex and surviving universe.
