Note: Writing ‘good’ reviews is an art form all it’s own.  This review is one of the first I wrote.  It’s brief. But don’t let the brevity of the review fool you about the quality of the book. This is a great book from a great series.  Fortunately my reviews got better the more I wrote.



“A ray of light, a stain of shadow, shall endure to breathe life and death into the future”

The war between the Guardians and the Shadow Riders ended in total devastation. The final battle killed all the dragons and left nothing but fields of ash. A small clutch of dragon eggs was all that remained to provide hope for the future.

Five hundred years later, the ability to use magic is a death sentence and dragons are remembered as a curse. But the unhatched dragons sing for their riders…and six lives will be changed forever.

The elements of magic are drawn together as the dragons’ call leads them on a journey where they learn everything they’ve been taught to believe about magic and dragons is wrong.

With the last of the dragons and the world at stake, they will risk everything to heed the call.

But an evil from the past rises again. Shadow Dragons ride the dawn once more…



This is what fantasy writing is all about. An intricately woven story of magic and dragons. The author has created a wonderful world full of potential. I cannot wait to read the next in the series. I highly recommend this story.
