Publisher's Summary

Dragons. Elves. And the last surviving human fated to save them from the sea.

A flood is coming. The Sea Queen has a mad plan to drown the world.

Only the magic of the Earth Queen can stop her.

Vahly, the last human, was born to fill that role and wield the magic necessary to fight the rising oceans and save the dragons.

But Vahly is the world’s biggest disappointment. So far, she possesses no magic whatsoever.

When she finds an ancient scroll that mentions a human power ritual conducted deep in the homeland of the elves, she gathers her dragon allies, and journeys to see the king of that forest-dwelling race.

Welcomed into a place more lovely than any dream, will Vahly find the truth about her people’s past and wake her magic, or will a twisted and powerful elven lord destroy her chance at saving the world?

Great story, awesome narration!

Fully enjoyed this book, the story was great, exciting world, great tension and real feeing of urgency for Vahly. I was so into it I was actually disappointed when it ended. The narration was also fantastic, she did a great job with giving each character their own personality and voices, had great emotion where necessary and was very pleasant to listen to. I can’t wait to get the next book.

Amazing story made even better!

This story is such an epic, amazing, beautiful tale when being read.. but listening to the audiobook really added so much more magic to it! The narrator really brought the characters to life, and I enjoyed listening to it even more than I enjoyed reading it, which isn't very common for me. This story has everything in it.. dragon shifters, elves, sea people, absolutely magical! I highly recommend this series!

Loved it!

Such an amazing listen! Thoroughly enjoyed this story and meeting Vahly! I really like how different this story was from most fantasy books I have read- the narrator really gives it life and gets you invested with the telling. I need to read the next book!

LOTR meets ATLA

There are four high races and four elemental powers. Water to the merfolk. Wind to the elves. Fire to the dragons. Earth to the humans. The last human, having been raised by dragons, is ready to embrace her power. One problem, she can't use any magic at all. Vali feels like a failure. A feeling I can relate to with ease. But she is determined. Instead of just bowing her head and laying low, she is constantly searching for a ritual or source to activate her powers. even if it means going to the dragon's greatest enemy. The elves. I really loved the story after the elves became involved. They added so much grandeur and mystery to the story. Best of all the quest to see them was but a matter of moments. No ridiculous long arduous Journey. Just boom elves falling from the sky. As with all audiobooks credit must be paid to the narrator Caitlin Davies, who gave a stellar performance that brought each character to life.

Vahly goes after her dream

This is a book with some great characters. The story is lively with a lot of action. Each character is unique. I would recommend this book to those who like magic, elves, dragons, merfolk and other species, war, and some humor. Most of the characters are dragons, elves and merfolk. Vahly is the only human. Some parts of this story are very sad. Some are funny. Vahly is stubborn and will do about anything to be the person that all the dragons believe she is destined to be. It is hard for her to be the only one who cannot fly. She has a lot of spirit and is someone that I enjoyed reading about. The narrator is amazing. She does a good job bringing each personality to life. She reads with energy and enthusiasm. Her voices are distinct.

An epic fantasy adventure

The narration was good. The story gets a bit confusing because there are memory wipes involved toward the end so I had to rewind and listen much more carefully to follow along. The memory wipes made the story seem choppy but once you get past them it all makes sense again. Fun story to listen to.

Dragons, elves, merpeople, & political intrigue

Loved the world building! The last Earth Queen is also the last human left on Earth, raised by dragons & prophesied to be the savior of the land. She's purported to have great powers by coming of age, but doesn't. She, her rag tag bunch of dragon friends, & a mysterious handsome Elf needing help, all begin a quest to see if they can help her find her true powers... but there are many of royal lineage, in rivaling factions, who would stop her, and will try anything to halt her in her tracks. Nice-paced read, ready for book 2! Not as fond of the narrarator, but stuck with it because of the story. I was provided this audiobook for free from the author. This in no way affected, nor influenced, my thoughts.

Loved it

I loved this book. The story was intense; bringing together my 3 favorite races- humans, elves and dragons! Can the lowly outcast human, last of her kind, find her powers to save the world from the sea queen? I’m on to book 2 to find out.

Stick with it, it’s worth it

I received a free audio copy of this book directly from the author for an honest review. 3 1/2 ⭐️ Stick with it, I can say it took quite a while to fully get into this book but I was really pleased I did. This book is very descriptive so you have a very good idea of exactly where you are and who you are with. The characters are pretty well developed if not always the most likeable. I found myself really loving Nix and the bond breakers yet Amona, Vahly’s dragon adoptive mother I really couldn’t get the same connection to. I really enjoyed a look into the POV of Ryton and the sea folk. I also liked the elves. This book is definitely leading up to something much bigger in the next book I think which I really am interested in. If it hadn’t taken me so long to get into I probably would of rated it higher but I suspect the next book will be a lot higher rating.

Good story line

Having listened to the book the heroine sounds too squeaky but otherwise the story is different to any I've read/listened to so far!

Enchanting tale

This book started a little slow but, it is definitely worth sticking with. The characters and the world the author brings to life with words are so enchanting it makes this book hard to put down. The narrator is great, adding an extra dimension to this tale. I cannot wait to see what happens next.

Fate of Dragons book 1

Dragons, Elves, Sea folk and the last surviving human..... What a combination. The Evil Sea Queen what's to flood the the world and wipe out elves, dragons and human. Vahly (the last human) who was saved and raised by dragons must find her way if any have a chance to survive. This is a great story and I'm looking forward to finding out what happens in the following books. The book is finished at a good point with defiantly more to come. I have been enjoying the characters as they develop and the relationship with each other. It's good to have the audio so that I can listen and enjoy the story without looking at the screen. I also enjoyed the way the story is told.
