Separated as a child from his family, Theo has always had a feeling that he’s made for something bigger than the suburban life he seems to be headed for. When a thug threatens his best friend, he can’t help but step in the way. The problem is that Theo’s just not much of a fighter.
Bruised and broken, Theo wakes up to a massive headache and what appears to be floating game text inviting him to become a dragon. No matter how often he rejects the prompt, it simply returns. Knowing that his life can’t get any worse, he reluctantly accepts...
And that’s when he’s finally exposed to the real world. Filled with goblins, orcs, and, of course, dragons.
Theo’s at a huge disadvantage starting at Level 1 and in extreme danger. As he soon learns from his squire, a woman who’s followed him in the shadows since birth, dragons are both jealous and territorial. The only way for Theo to survive is to embark on an epic quest to level up and to claim his rightful draconic heritage.
Drakon Prince is an exciting new LitRPG/GameLit novel from bestseller Jamie Mcfarlane, complete with goblins, dragons, elves, and orcs. The world includes game elements such as skill progression, user and weapon attributes, fortress building, soul shard currency, and much, much more for lovers of all things progression fantasy!

In the first few pages we get stupid, I mean the hero, making his way in life. He’s told, don’t chose the warrior path. He’s told, don’t take the prompt. He’s told, if he dies he’s going to get people killed.
He chooses to swing a stick around instead of command fire. Chooses a sword instead of control of ice. Chooses to get people killed instead of stopping and thinking of a way out. This might be a good book when you cut through the stupid, but I ain’t got that time.
Oh, and he lets a man who assaults woman go with two horses instead of beat him down. I won’t be reading this author.
Now for the things that I didn't like. It's a short list. There were a few times at the end of each chapter when TK's inventory is listed. And the accounting of what he had in his inventory wasn't always accurate to what he had looted, and to what he had from the previous time it listed his inventory. In other words, at one point he had to give up his only yellow soul gems to make peace with the king. But come the end of the next chapter, it said that he has seven of them. Then at the end of the next chapter, after killing the orc chieftain and looting a yellow gem, It said said he only had one.
Inconsistencies like that pop up in a few places. And there were a few minor spelling issues. Aside from these minor issues I definitely recommend it.
McFarlane uses complex characters that grow and develop over the course of book and this continues in the following books. I hope there are more books following this one. I particularly enjoyed the interactions between the main character, the squire, and the mage as these characters grow and develop and the impact of that on their growing and maturing relationships during their adventures.
Another aspect of McFarlane's writing that I enjoy is that the main character has admirable ethics that are put to the test in various and interesting ways. Unlike his other books, we have a main character with various physical shapes and each comes with capabilities, advantages, and disadvantages. I'm hoping the subsequent books build on this and give us insights about the impact of these differences, the problems they create, and how things are, hopefully, reconciled in a constructive way. (I'm being purposefully vague here because I want you to share in the discoveries during the read. I'm thinking of the challenge our Armed Forces face when they put on their combat gear in a war context and are confronted by aggressive attacks by the enemy as opposed to the same person in civvies at home and are confronted by a local jerk's aggressive attacks. The same person in two different contexts receiving similar attacks and the importance and challenges of reacting appropriately and being at peace with one's self about what they have done in both contexts.)
Unlike at least one reviewer who found something not to like relatively early in the book (e.g. harem), don't jump to conclusions about what this book is about based on the simplistic works of others. I truly believe you will enjoy this book if you press ahead and truly experience it all, as it is most certainly not a "teen boy fantasy"!
