Publisher's Summary

The debut novel from the acclaimed illustrator - a high fantasy adventure featuring dragons and deadly politics.

Maia and her family raise dragons for the political war machine. As she comes of age, she anticipates a dragon of her own to add to the stable of breeding parents. Her peaceful life is shattered when the Summer Dragon - one of the rare and mythical High Dragons - makes an appearance in her quiet valley. Political factions vie for control of the implied message, threatening her aspirations, her aerie, her entire way of life.

The bond between dragons and their riders is deep and lifelong, and Maia's desire for a dragon of her own to train, ride, fly, and love drives her to take a risk that puts her life at stake. She is swept into an adventure that pits her against the deathless Horrors, thralls of the enemy, and a faceless creature drawn from her fear. In her fight to preserve everything she knows and loves, she exposes a conspiracy, unearths an ancient civilization, and challenges her understanding of her world - and of herself.

    I've listened to this great audio book three times in a row so far and expect to begin again immediately... Wonderfully complex and detailed! Looking for the next book and hope it's soon!

    "Love it!"

    Learn to raise and train your dragon in an exciting and engaging way, along with bone chilling experiences and adventures!
    It obviously reminded of The Dragonriders of Pern series, but also The Chronicles of Obernewtyn. Can't wait for the next book.

    "Great start for the series"

    I love stories about dragons and this one is a little different. Maia has a special gift and I hope to see it expanded upon in future books. This story has what I would equate to "zombie dragons" plus political and religious(?? about the closes I can describe one group) and family intrigues. I think this book lays the framework for some interesting story telling as well as a possible love interest (only one mention) for Malia. I look forward to the next in series.

    "A Great Beginning"
    Any additional comments?

    This novel is a wonderful, exciting beginning to the series. The world is well thought-through and conveyed, the characters are fairly engaging, and I can't wait to see how the author fleshes out more of the mysterious history of the world in the (hopefully!) upcoming books. Definitely worth the listen and the wait for more fantastic storytelling!
