Publisher's Summary

Trick the humans, steal the gold, gain the power, achieve god-like status. The motivations of a Diabolical Dragon.

Orion's unknown father...yeah, that shitty guy was a fey dragon. When Orion matures into a man, he spends a day in the snow transforming into a warehouse-sized dragon. Now he's hunted. Vile humans want to adorn his head as a trophy in their halls. Except, instead of letting the humans hound him, Orion blends in, swapping between dragon and human to carry out his diabolical plans.

Warning: This novella is not for the faint of heart. It contains a bad guy...an actual villain. Does he have motivations? Sure, but he still is the Diabolical Dragon. Contains a magical fantasy setting where men use dowries for their daughters, monster fey are considered scum, and nobility can do just about anything they want if they have enough gold.

This second edition contains all new chapters with 20 percent more content than before. Enjoy.

Great Story of A Diabolical Villan

Now this is a story about a Villan I can support. Being a dragon our MC is understandably not constrained by human morals. Yet he does maintain a sense of right and wrong all while being a Diabolical Villan. He has his own set of morals that he follows. And while he does sell people into slavery, he only does so when his lovers abandon him and his "benevolence" leaving him feeling slightly betrayed. Understandable, given he, as a dragon, is a hoarder and does not approve of letting his "possessions" go without benefit to him.

Many people might see this MC as pure Evil but I think the benevolence he shows his own people is what is the most telling in that regards. His people gradually flourish while almost every other nation around his has considerable trouble with some being destroyed from within and others from invasion. But the people under his thumb have mostly happy productive lives.

Can you really call that evil? Diabolical absolutely. But Evil... I don't think so.

Well done

As far as the review goes this was a very well written story and the narrators did a fantastic job. The story is broken into four acts of which my favorites are the second and third. The ending was pretty good and made me think of the feeling I had at the end of Michael Scott Earle’s The Destroyer. With that said overall the slavery in the story and specially, even though the main character is evil, his active participation in it really bothered me. Like the aforementioned series for me it's a one and done and if there was ever to be additional books tied to this one, I would be out. That's just my personal preference. I would still recommend this book at least the people that I know would enjoy it.

hilariously entertaining

a nice change from typical good guy story. a fun insight into the daily life of what a shape shifting dragon does, which is what ever he wants to do. it had me rolling at some of the things he puts humans through, that ironically, we do to our selves. highly recommended especially if you want an out of the box story plot

Marcus does it again

What can I say? I am a fan of Marcus's writing, was a little unsure of the narrators at first because I have never heard them before but they quickly grow on you.

overall an enjoyable story.

Not for me

I couldn't finish this one.

I don't mind the whole following the bad guy, but I don't enjoy everything being handed to them. The starts with the dragon at the height of power. I'd much rather watch them get there. The narration was good though
