Publisher's Summary

The first dragonrider in over a hundred years has been born...and it’s a girl. Never before has a female been chosen to ride a dragon.

The Elite, a guild comprised exclusively of dragonriders, is dead according to most. No one has seen a rider in decades. The problems they used to fight overwhelm the world. Dragons are thought to be near extinction.

However, the Elite aren’t dead...It’s just that a bunch of crusty old men who do nothing that benefits the world at large are easy to mistake as useless corpses.

Sophia Beaufont is about to change all of that.

When the dragon egg that magnetized to her hatches, it sets Sophia on a new course. The Elite are immediately notified. She’s expected to train, defend, and fight.

Sophia is ready to conquer evil, as the dragon riders should have been doing for centuries. However, the Elite have been turning a blind eye, allowing the world to be overrun by criminals.

That’s all about to change. S. Beaufont isn’t a girl who will be told to sit down and relax when a war is brewing that only a dragonrider can extinguish.

Not Much of a Story

I have listened up to chapter 24 so far, and so far there is no story beyond “a female born in exceptional circumstances joins a previously male-only group that does not do anything”. The maturity level seems along the lines of the Descendants series by Disney. I was really hoping for more substance here, but am too bored by the book to continue.

Yawn

This is more of a young adult, save the planet from the nasty corporate goons, sort of book with some dragons thrown in. Mary Sue, er... I mean Sophia always does everything better and faster than anyone else before her.

Not much progression

Like many audiobooks I've listened to, this suffers from a severe lack of an editor. I understand wanting to plush up the narration time, but at least make it somewhat substantial.
