Publisher's Summary

What kind of power is lurking inside him?

After a year of training to become a dragonrider, Jaevid Broadfeather has been sent home to rest during a three-month interlude. But when he returns to find the king drake has chosen Beckah Derrick as his new rider, Jaevid realizes something big is about to happen.

Every fiber of his being is pushed to the breaking point as Jaevid battles through his avian year, preparing for the final graduation test of the battle scenario. But there is more standing in his way than a few push-ups and fancy sword moves. Jaevid must face a new fear as he is tormented by a gruesome nightmare of a mysterious gray elf warrior murdering the royal family of Maldobar. It seems obvious to him that this is some kind of message about how the war started long ago - until Felix assures him the king is very much alive.

With his strange powers growing stronger by the day and that violent dream replaying in his mind every night, Jaevid no longer wonders if he will pass his avian year or not - he wonders if he will even survive it. The truth will soon be set loose.

    Story
    "Loving this series!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! I've found that listening to the story has helped the characters come alive like they are in the room with me. Much better than my own voice in my head.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Beckah chosen by the king drake and the relationship that builds between her and Jaevid.


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

    Yes. The first book of this series was done by Jesse. He reads well and gives a great voice to the characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, I loved the growth spurt of Jaevid and how he is viewed differently. He had struggled with prejudice's and now folks feared him. My heart broke for him. Although, of course several folks treated him no different, but maybe were hesitant still in the beginning. Wow. What a twist.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a must buy and listen!!! Trust me!

    "The series just gets better!"

    This series just gets better and better! There are plenty of action, romance, tension, and surprises to keep the listener welded to his or her earphones! I can't wait to listen to the next book in this wonderful series!

    "Painfully boring"

    The first book was okay, but this book was just painful to get through. The constant rehashing of the same phrases and descriptions made reading and listening quite a chore. While the idea of the book is quite interesting the execution is just not.

    Story
    "Story makes up for the slow-talking narrator."

    Honestly I hated the first book, I literally was skimming through it as I was so tired of Jaevid getting beat up. He seemed so accepting of it I couldn't listen, it was annoying buuut this book really picks up!! Lots of twists, and character progression of course.

    I highly recommend this book.

    Narrator is 2/5 but the story is worth it.

    The narrator talks a little too slow, and draws out most words in a weird way, sometimes I listen at 1.25 speed... FAR from my favorite narrator.. it's weird. He narrates so slow(talks slow) it feels like Jaevid is a slow thinker, but he's not.

    Story
    "The author delivered."

    I had hoped for more in the second book and got everything I asked for: the characters were much better developed and the story takes you from hating to loving them all. The story keeps you hanging to the very last word though, that annoys me a bit but I guess it keeps the interest to the VERY end. Seriously, don't hold your breath for answers.
    Will definitely be listening to the next book.

    "like this story"

    I really like listening to this story with my daughter, we're waiting on the chance to get the next on series. The only thing that makes it less than perfect is the narration. Sometimes the emphasis and inflection are weird, and the voices that the narrator puts on are strange. I think a deeper voice would be appropriate for some characters but he almost always makes them higher pitched, even for the men. Other than that the writing is good and of I were reading a hard copy I wouldn't put it down until I had to.

    "Great continuation."

    This book follows on and continues to build on the good storey started in book 1. I am hooked by this series and already have book 3 downloaded and ready to go. If you like dragons, magic and adventure then i suggest you start listening.
