Publisher's Summary

An ancient evil stirs in the darkness.... 

The Spirit King is dead, but young dragon rider Pieter’s wounds still run deep. His dragon Gloriox is determined to help him heal, but when their travels bring them to the realm of Chamenos, they quickly discover that Gloriox’s niece has been captured. And every other dragon has gone missing…. 

With their newfound friends Ziggy and Rosa, Pieter and Gloriox scour the land to find Gloriox’s niece. But their search is made even more dangerous by a tyrant king, who’s determined to find the first dragon’s bones. This bloodthirsty ruler will kill anyone who gets in his way, and Pieter may be the only one who can stop him.  

The shadow of evil hangs over them all, and Pieter is terrified of losing his companions to the coming violence. But some battles must be fought, no matter how much Pieter longs for safety. And if he can’t overcome his fear, his hesitation could be deadlier than any evil spell. 

Danger lurks while ancient powers sleep. If Pieter and his friends can’t stop them from waking, the entire world will pay the price….

I want more of this world.

I enjoyed this story, I really liked the depth of characters which were enhanced by the narrator. The story had a couple of really good twists and turns that weren't jarring, they felt true and although unexpected were not surprising.
excellent narration, the characters voices were fitting and fun. I want to read more of this world.

Facing the Tyrant King

After the bitter war they have just come through, the young dragon rider Pieter is having a difficult time adjusting. His dragon, Gloriox, will do whatever possible to help him heal, but it seems things just won’t settle down. When they travel to Chamenos, they discover that the troubles have already begun. Gloriox’s niece has been captured, and all of the other dragons are gone. Now the search is on to find Gloriox’s niece. They will have to face the tyrant king’s dark magic and this time Pieter may be the only one who can stop him. Is Pieter ready for another battle? Will his weak magic strengthen to meet the challenge?

I just love dragon stories! Gloriox has quite a personality and, of course, he is my favorite. The narrator for the audiobook version is Amelia Hugh. She does an excellent job with the voices to make it easy for the listener to get an accurate idea of what each character is like and to feel the tension of the storm raging around them and the difficulties they encounter. It helps to set the mood and is an enjoyable, hands-free way to “read” the exciting book.

Outstanding

Peter continues on without Dez and Khan trying to find his place in the world with his dragon. Another amazing dragon adventure that Ava brings to life. With strong characters, action, a budding romance and of course magic. Amelia does an amazing job of bringing the characters to life in her narration. Couldn’t stop listening. Will definitely get the next book in the series.

Great book

This was a great book. There is something about dragons. Peter really grew up in this book and was able to use his magic better. He made friends with the girls and they found the dragon eggs. I can’t wait for the next book.

Excellent and exciting dragon adventure

This is a fantastic adventure story for Pieter. Following the battle with the Spirit King, Pieter is looking for adventure and his place. Travelling to Gloriox homeland, he discovers that things are not what they seem. With twists and turns this is a fantastic story with dragons and magic. Fast paced and unexpected. The audio is excellent and the narrator is perfect for the story and the story is brought to life with excitement and character.
