TL;DR: 3 out of 5 stars
Irving does an excellent job in crafting a light-hearted urban fantasy for an adult market. Filled with snarky one-liners and engaging protagonists, The Day of the Dragonking is a fun time. Steve Rowan is a funny and relatable anti-hero who is attempting (sometimes unsuccessfully) to be the hero that everyone tells him he’s supposed to be. His cynical nature and sarcastic attitude only make him more relatable and entertaining. I had some trouble coming to terms with the logistics of this story, but I suspended my disbelief long enough to enjoy it, and I hope you do too.
