Publisher's Summary

To unite a fractured kingdom, a reluctant hero must rise.

Neill has been charged with the impossible task of bringing the Middle Kingdom together to fight the burgeoning threat posed by the rogue sorcerer Ansall and his dragon Zaxx. Neill longs for his old life as a mere foot soldier for his father, responsible only for his family’s well-being, and is unsure about whether he is fit to lead an army. Neill’s contemplative nature forces him to consider every aspect of the problems he faces, but often makes it difficult for him to take action - and failure to act could mean the deaths of many.  

Now, echoing Char and their dragon Paxala, his duty beckons him to lead the Dragon Riders and take his rightful place as king, but with doubt and new enemies creeping in, his resolve will be tested. 

When the mysterious Dark Prince arrives with an offer, Neill will have to make a decision that could change the course of history. As Ansall grows in strength by harnessing black magic, Neill must choose between his own desires and the welfare of the entire kingdom. Can he rise to the challenge before it’s too late?

Exciting and Thrilling!!!

Dragon Mage
The First Dragon Rider, Book 3
By: Ava Richardson
Narrated by: Tiffany Williams
This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary.
I love these dragon books! I love most dragon books but these I feel I get to know the dragons and the riders personally. The action, excitement, intrigue, thrills, danger, and so much more all rolled up in these books. This is a great series. What is better than a young sorcerer and a dragon?
The narrator is awesome and performs the voices well and makes the emotions flow with her words. Wonderful job!!!

Reluctant hero

It felt like poor Neill kept getting thrown into situations he didn't want to be in and then no one was noticing how he felt, yet he always came through when he was needed just like in the first 2 books.

This book is a great ending to the story, and these books definitely need to be listened to in order.

There's lots of action and old enemies keep coming back. The story is creative and I enjoyed the twists that it took. With dragons a wizards it's not surprising that there's not a dull moment.

The character voices were great and the delivery was well paced and conveyed the emotions of the characters and scenes.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

Can't get enough

Ever have a series you just can't get enough of? That is the Dragon Rider series for me. They're amazing books that I keep going back and listening to again and again. If you like fantasy and dragons, pick up not only this book, but the entire series. I really believe you'll enjoy them!

great ending

Another great addition to the saga and it gets even more intense where it culminates in the battle between the good and evil. I am happy the good wins in the end, but at what cost. Listening to Neill battling with all the insecurities broke my heart, those around him never saw it and sometimes made it worse. It ended well for him though, realizing that Char is the one meant for him. Loved the dragons, their interaction with the riders and how they are integral to the whole story.
I recommend this book, the series to listeners of all ages.

I enjoy listening to Ms. Williams' voice and her story-telling style making for an enjoyable listening experience.
