Summary

The once peaceful kingdom of Torvald has been ravaged by evil magic, forcing Riders to forget their dragons and their noble beasts to flee to the wilds. Now, anyone who dares to speak of dragons is deemed insane and put to death. Into this dark and twisted land, Saffron was born 16 years ago. Cursed with dragon affinity and magical powers, she has been forced into a life of exile and raised by dragons - secretly dreaming of a normal life and the family she lost. But as her powers become more uncontrollable, Saffron knows she must find her family before she hurts herself - or worse, her dragon clan.

Scholarly and reclusive, Bower prefers to spend his days reading about the legends of the Dragon Riders - even if being caught means death. But as the son of a noble house on the brink of destruction, it falls to him to fulfill a mysterious prophecy and save his kingdom from the rule of the evil King Enric - yet all he wants is to be left alone to read. When fate brings him into contact with Saffron, Bower gains a powerful ally - but one whose wild, volatile magic threatens their very lives.

cadence was weird

I enjoyed the book and story. I really liked how they had different narrative for the different characters. but, the cadence of the narrative was kind of choppy. easy to look past thankfully.

Magic and Dragons!

Bower of House Daris walks a fine line for his father, his people and his way of life, but not for long. King Maddox rules with the iron fist of the Iron Guard and his frightening ability to know everything that’s happening in Torvald. When Bower is betrayed by one he believed to be a loyal family retainer, he takes to the wilds for the adventures he’s always read about.

As prophesy would have it, Bower meets up with fiery Saffron and her Den Sister Jadra, a real dragon just like in his books. The only problem is that Saffron is going back to Torvald, the place Bower just escaped. After she saved his life, Bower can’t allow her to go there alone.

it is ok book about dragons

the book was a bit boring than the other books of Ava Richardson. and Sarah Mollo-Chirstensen sounded afraid, and personally I think she was not the best choice for Saffron. I do not think that a scared voice fits so well when Saffron grew up with dragons, but Sarah did her best the same with Will Damron.
