Publisher's Summary

The new world is calling....

Niell Torvald is desperate to prove himself - his father’s kingdom depends on him. When a vicious attack on the way to the Draconis Order monastery nearly kills him, it becomes clear that grave trials await him on this path. Joreth, the wise monk who saves his life, advises caution upon entering the sacred halls. His mission is to learn arcane magic from the monks that will help to cement his father’s power, but Niell will need more than magical arts alone to navigate the challenges before him.

Among the monks’ students, Niell meets the lovely and mysterious Char, who senses evil deep within the ranks of the dragon order’s members. She takes him to a dragon she has raised, Paxala, and the three of them become fast friends. Niell soon grows in strength as he and his fellow students gain ancient knowledge, and his closeness to Char blossoms into something more.

When Niell’s brothers grow impatient and attack the monastery in a bid to seize power, he will have to decide where his loyalties lie: with his warlord father’s domain or the new friends he has made in the wider world.

    Story
    "Interested to see where it leads. "

    All in all, it was worth a listen to, the narrator did a reasonable job with the character voices and story telling, and the overall story was pretty good, but I found it a little too easy a listen, a little too much young in the YA for my taste.
    The characters all felt a bit too naive and no where near as cunning as they thought they were and sometimes I couldn’t follow the logic of why some of them would do some of those things when no reasonable person would!?
    After having taken the time to finish it though, I’d be very interested in seeing where the story is taken from here and would probably finish the series!
    I listened to the story on X1.25 speed and it didn’t lose any appeal or quality.
    This is an unbiased review of a free review copy.

    Story
    "interesting"

    An interesting twist on the dragon rider story. Recommending to younger listeners.
    It is heavy on the human side and very little on the dragon side. I would have likes a bit more background story on the dragons and how they came to be in that crater. A bit confused though... Are they captive? Why are the monks feeding them? Are they bad or are they good? Are they used by the abbott or are they using him?
    I liked that Niell is given a chance to prove himself, how he grows in character and he turns out to be an honest, loyal young man despite the many injustices thrown his way from a young age. Finally befriending Char and then her dragon, then their rescue opens up opportunities for him. Left with many questions though which hopefully will be answered in the next book.

    I liked Ms. Williams' voice she uses in the story-telling style that many young listeners would enjoy.

    "Sweet novel"

    Am not a big fan of books about dragons and such, but I have to admit that this one kept me totally entertained and needing to hear what would happen next. It had a seamless flow to it and very easy to understand without leaving you confused. The author did an excellent job writing this and the narrator did an excellent job telling it. A great novel for the young readers who like stories like this one.

    "Dragon fun"

    Getting sent to learn the secrets of a monastery doesn't sound like a lot of fun and it doesn't sound dangerous. It turns out to be the exact opposite. There is adventure and magic mixed up with dragons in this book. I enjoyed this book a lot. I will have to be on the lookout for the next book to come out because it was a great story and the narration was wonderful too. If you like dragons and fantasy, pick up this book.

    This review copy audiobook was provided by the author/narrator/publisher free of charge.

    "Great start to a new fantasy series"

    I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    I thought this was a pretty good book. It is definitely geared towards a younger audience, but I thought it was still pretty good. I thought the narrator was good too. Tiffany Williams' voice was rich and dynamic and helped bring the story to life. I would have liked a little more background to some parts, like the dragons, but I'm sure there will be in future books in the series.

    "A Dragon cult that is bad?"

    A few children that go to be trained as mages or scribes or knights. Except a few have secrets. How are they going to find out the mages secrets. I received this audio book for free at my request and voluntarily reviewed.

    "Dragons for YA"

    This book was a nice little adventure with some magic and dragons definitely built towards a younger audience but can easy be enjoyed and any age. If you like dragons or fantasy then it's worth a shot and Williams does a great job in this one.

    I received this audiobook as a gift in exchange for my honest review.
