I don't understand how you two keep doing this. I have read a s**t ton of both your books and have never had to say on book 5, this sucks. I just keep reading book after book of you both and the fine co-writers you work with. I'm disabled and have always read a lot. 2 years ago I started reading Mikes and Martha's books. I have been full ever since. Read the books! I have sent out so many suggestions to friends and about 20% read what I'm reading. Take the time to read and rate this book!!! It's worth your time!

Life on a small goat ranch was not easy. But Raven was a mage (in training) and mage school had started but she hadn't yet found her Familiar. Her grandfather was a hero of the last war against the swarm, though it took all of his mage abilities to win it. Raven' neighbor raised Dragons and he had one, called Leander, and he was unable to train him. He thought this stubborn dragon Leander, could be trained by his stubborn friend Raven. Train a dragon and train a Mage. We'll see!!
2.0 out of 5 starsPredictible plot and characters, nothing new and exciting here

There are lots of books that take this approach to dragons and dragon riders. I found this one a bit bland both in the characters and the lack of real action. I just could not get invested in the heroine or in her dragon. The book needs a lot more world building to establish the setting and some more history of the dragons and how the world treats them. I wanted to call the RSPCA and report them all for animal cruelty.
Can't really recommend the book and I didn't get interested enough to follow the series.

The numerous typos and grammatical mistakes were so annoying, I couldn't get into the story at all. My teenage daughter even commented about how surprised she was at all the mistakes. We'll give this story another try after the author has a professional editor look over the text. But for now, this stays in the cloud.

Preteens and young adults should enjoy this book very much. Who hasn't dreamed of being powerful, having magic or their very own Dragon to ride? Our young hero finds that dreams are fine but hard work is the thing that makes it all happen. Raised by her Grandfather she knows all her line of Albee were mages and she is destined to be the same. Too bad she wants more, wants adventure. Perfect book for this age group. If you have no room for a pony, read a book about the bond formed between a girl and her dragon.

Henry is a character. He has rather funny goals for his new school year. William trains dragons. He genuinely cares for each of them. Raven is a mage in training. Her family has a reputation for the best mages in her town. She wants to be more than just a mage. Overall, she makes friends fast. Bella has decided that she has to beat Raven at everything even if she has to cheat to do it or break some rules. Mostly, the competition is one sided since Raven is more interested in training a dragon. This book pulled me in right from the very beginning. Once I started it, it was hard for me to put it down and I read it in every free moment I had. I recommend this book to those who enjoy books with magic and dragons. The teens seem pretty focused overall and dependable.
This book has character (and characters) in spades. I loved the dynamics among the main cast, and chortled when Raven. the stubborn and curious MC, met Leander, the match to her stubbornness. By the time these two learned to work together, I felt as though I’d conquered their hurdles right along with them.

Raven is a Mage (in training) a very powerful Mage but she feels there is something more, This book is brilliant, it has all the right ingredients. Strong willed heroine, snarky dragon, growly grandad and something out there that is killing people. Not just people, animals as well. Oh and a rival by the name of Bella Chase. Please hurry with the next book.
What could be better? Dragons and Mages both make me happy. I have been looking forward to this and I was not disappointed, read it in one day, even though it's a larger book. Characters are well written and the dialogue from the Dragon is inspired. Desperate for the next one.
5.0 out of 5 starsRead this book! You won't be sorry.

This book was well written with characters who caught and held my attention. I loved the storyline when Raven the stubborn main character met Leander, a dragon who at least matched her stubborness and how they learned to work together. Mage school, teenage friendships and rivalries, dragons and evil. What more could you ask for in a story? I'm jumping into the next book in the series now.
