Forced to fight for their lives, they leave the safety of the desert, traveling across the land to gather intelligence and shore up forgotten alliances.

    "Adventure, treachery, winged beasts, & more!"
    Where does Return of the Dragon Riders rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Oh.. hmm.. tough question. I listen to a lot of audiobooks. I read (print, ebook, & audio) more than 100 books a year. So, let's say we put this in the top 200 of all the audiobooks I have ever listened to.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The treachery, past and present. It really added an underlying cruelty to the story that rang true to life and counterbalanced Elias's innocence and trust of others.


    Have you listened to any of Adam Chase’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, Book 1 in this series. He did a great job, once again.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but I had to break it up due to a daily farm life routine.


    Any additional comments?

    Book 2 picks up right where Book 1 left off. Elias is pulled up into a new world. one where great things are expected of him because of this prophesy. Pf course, this makes him a major target for the evil Vosper and his allies. The few remaining dragon riders have one last refuge, the city of Parthos. Elias and his new friends face many foes in this book and sometimes Elias isn’t too sure who his friends are.

    While we have yet to meet the evil Vosper, we do get to see plenty of his badguy handy work, from the past, and in Elias’s present. More info about Elias’s parentage is revealed to the readers. Thorin, Elias’s halfling friend from Book 1, is still around providing advice, support, and the occasional comedic relief. The dragon riders themselves area mixed bag, some being extremely serious all the time. Others have a little fun. Some new magic users are recruited and some young dragons are looking to make a match with human riders.

    There’s plenty of action in this novel and it is well-paced with comedic moments and serious moments. I like that the point of view shifts around and we get to spend time in different heads. Elias is a well-meaning teen who wants to think the best of nearly everyone. Many of the other characters are not so trusting. In fact, there is a hidden traitor among them, which added suspense to the story.

    Overall, this was a very good follow up to Book 1. I am very much looking forward to Book 3.

    Narration: Chase did a great job once again. He has distinct male and female voices and does accents. He also had several opportunities to portray strong emotions in this book, which he did very well.
