Publisher's Summary

Will adapting to a changing world make one young woman lose touch with where she came from? 

Far from the kingdom of Torvald, on the Western Isles near the coast, sea dragons rule the skies. Lila is the daughter of the Raider leader, destined to take his place one day aboard their plundering ships. Her people value only what shiny trinkets they can get their hands on, but she aspires to much more than that: Lila wants the Raiders to become Dragon Mercenaries, dragon riders who help protect merchant fleets and navies from attack. Her father Kasian is skeptical, but a young monk named Danu - with a quest of his own - comes bearing a prophecy claiming that Lila is the lost heir of Roskilde, a born dragon rider. 

With Danu’s guidance, Lila finds the unruly dragon she’s destined to bond with - but the mismatched pair soon learn that much more than just their futures is at stake.

Story was very slow to me

I listened for about 3 hours before I just had to stop from boredom. I felt that the narrator did a decent job from when I did listen to and I think the story has potential I just don't have the attention span to listen to something if it just doesn't grab me.

Love, Life, and Dragons

Ava Richardson paints a vivid world with words full of magic and mystery.

Lila is a girl on the cusp of being a woman when she finds out that her past redefines her future. Through bravery she fights to find a way to save her people.

My favorite character from this book was the mage's apprentice. If not for his faith, courage, and kindness Lila may have never found out who she truly was.

Jean Ann Douglas does a tremendous job narrating the story. Her voice and storytelling ability fit perfectly with the written word.

I had a lot of fun listening to this story.

Dragon Raider

The beginning of what is sure to be a gripping series. With a prophecy, magic, and dragons, you can’t go wrong!

Ava Richardson has created an amazing world with fantastic characters. I can’t wait for book two of this trilogy to be released as an audiobook.

Jean Ann Douglass brought this story to life with her narration. I look forward to listening to more of her work.

Captivating Fantasy/Adventure

Storyline flows well. Has excellent narration style. Definitely an excellent beginning for a trilogy, even though this one could actually be a stand alone novel because of the smoothly written ending of this 1st book
I recommend this book to ages 12 and older.
I was given this audiobook for free, and I freely give my opinion.
