What kind of power is lurking inside him?
After a year of training to become a dragonrider, Jaevid Broadfeather has been sent home to rest during a three-month interlude. But when he returns to find the king drake has chosen Beckah Derrick as his new rider, Jaevid realizes something big is about to happen.
Every fiber of his being is pushed to the breaking point as Jaevid battles through his avian year, preparing for the final graduation test of the battle scenario. But there is more standing in his way than a few push-ups and fancy sword moves. Jaevid must face a new fear as he is tormented by a gruesome nightmare of a mysterious gray elf warrior murdering the royal family of Maldobar. It seems obvious to him that this is some kind of message about how the war started long ago - until Felix assures him the king is very much alive.
With his strange powers growing stronger by the day and that violent dream replaying in his mind every night, Jaevid no longer wonders if he will pass his avian year or not - he wonders if he will even survive it. The truth will soon be set loose.

Very big audible fan.
This book follows on and continues to build on the good storey started in book 1. I am hooked by this series and already have book 3 downloaded and ready to go. If you like dragons, magic and adventure then i suggest you start listening.
The narrator's excellent! You can hear repeatedly, and find something new each time.
"The series just gets better!"
This series just gets better and better! There are plenty of action, romance, tension, and surprises to keep the listener welded to his or her earphones! I can't wait to listen to the next book in this wonderful series!
This is one of the best books I have ever listened to. Emotional and adventurous...Thank you!
"Loving this series!"
Absolutely! I've found that listening to the story has helped the characters come alive like they are in the room with me. Much better than my own voice in my head.
Beckah chosen by the king drake and the relationship that builds between her and Jaevid.
Yes. The first book of this series was done by Jesse. He reads well and gives a great voice to the characters.
Yes, I loved the growth spurt of Jaevid and how he is viewed differently. He had struggled with prejudice's and now folks feared him. My heart broke for him. Although, of course several folks treated him no different, but maybe were hesitant still in the beginning. Wow. What a twist.
This is a must buy and listen!!! Trust me!
"Plainly, clearly, and unabashedly a cliff hanger!"
In some of the recent reviews, the reviewer has stuck their delicate nose in the air and disparaged the author for not being more subtle about the next book in the series and put a distasteful cast to the term "cliff hanger". I hope none of them start this series for I fear they'll perish at the flagrant cliff hanger ending! But it is an appropriate ending in this case: the book has energy and action of the most intriguing kind and encompasses everything that makes a successful listen or read depending on the purchaser's preference. This is a second book and worthy of the 5 stars for story. Buy and enjoy!
"Tired of main character's stupidity..."
The main character is such a wimp it gets old quick. He has amazing abilities beyond any of the other characters, yet he's still a doormat. This also impacts ALL of his relationships.
"I really enjoyed this book."
You'll like this book if you like Eragon, Godling chronicles, and other Dragon / Elves stories. Great read. Can't wait to finish the series.
"Excellent Story and Performance"
Wow! I am officially hooked on this series. Nicole Conway does an incredible job of developing characters and keeping a very interesting storyline moving without a lull.
YA angst with dragons and elves. At least the author has the characters take frequent showers!
"Fun but geared for younger readers"
Entertaining story if you are a Dragon fancier. Could have developed the dragon parts a bit more. Parts of the romance were naive and somewhat annoying
