Girl meets dragon. Girl works to befriend dragon. A large, red, dangerous dragon.
Raven Alby will have to train her new ride and save the dragon’s life or die trying.
Mix in starting at Fowler Academy as a first-year, becoming a stronger mage, and oh...people disappearing.
It's all adding up to typical teenager stuff for a young mage.
The first lesson Raven will learn? Don’t ever let anything come between a girl and her dragon.

Don't mess with a girl and her dragon
The first part of this book mainly covered Raven, her friends and her grandfather, with a bit of mystery regarding the disappearance of townspeople and farm workers. We don't get to meet Leander until about halfway through the book, and both Raven and Leander are the same - stubborn. I really liked this story and am looking forward to listening to the next book, which I will be starting tomorrow. The characters are well written (I expect nothing less from M&M). The narration is excellent and kept me engaged in the storyline - Renee Dorian has made it into my top 10 of narrators :).

poor job of world logic
I had a hard time finishing this because the worldbuilding was terrible. The plot hinges on contradictory and illogical social norms, and many ghings are never clearly explained. The worst thing, however, is how dragons are treated. it drove ne crazy. Dragons are shown to be creatures as intelligent as humans, but are treated like dogs. They need to be led on leashes? Trained like a horse? It defies logic. Either they are dumb animals or people. If there is another rationale, such as they don't understand things the way we do, it ought to be shown. I've read many of the anderle books, but I truly regret spending it on this one.
