Seed of Dragons: Surviving an Empire Undone is a work of fiction in the action, adventure, and interpersonal drama subgenres. It is suitable for the general reading audience and was penned by author Billy Ironcrane. The book tells two stories: the first is about the coming of age of a boy abandoned in a dangerous world with the future of his people and the second is about a criminal on the run who must accept a new life of focusing purely on survival. The two stories are linked together in their themes of surviving pandemonium in order to achieve independence.
Seed of Dragons felt like an important discussion on the meaning of existence, or more precisely the urgency with which we seek out that meaning. By telling the tales of two characters forced to focus only on what is necessary to survive their immediate situations, author Billy Ironcrane tells us a larger story about finding what is truly essential to you before life forces you to find that focus through adversity. With this style in mind, the tales in this book feel more akin to parables from which we can reflect on our own lives and ask ourselves about the priorities and decisions that have led us to where we are now. Overall, Seed of Dragons paints a vivid picture of a dangerous world and the people at the bottom of the social hierarchy doing what they must in order to survive it. The prose leaps off the page in order to portray its heroes' struggles and the underlying themes of the story make this a book I’d easily recommend to all readers.
