Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For the first time ever, national best-selling legend Mercedes Lackey draws from her extensive knowlege of animals—and her professional background as an avian expert—to create something truly special...

The most exciting, authentic and believable portrayal of dragons ever imagined.

It is a richly conceived, fully realized vision, inspired by the culture of ancient Egypt, the legends of Atlantis-and the science of animal behavior and biology. This is how dragons would live, breed, hatch, hunt, and bond.

The first book in this thrilling new series introduces readers to a young slave who dreams of becoming a Jouster-one of the few warriors who can actually ride a flying dragon. And so, in secret, he begins to raise his own dragon.

Review:

"In this elegant, compelling fantasy from the prolific author of the Valdemar series, Lackey combines meticulously detailed dragon lore with emotionally intense, realistic human characters....This uplifting tale...is a must-read for dragon lovers in particular and for fantasy fans in general." Publishers Weekly

I know that you will fall in love with the characters in these books as I have. Vetch is a perfect imperfect hero in this coming of age story of a young slave who has empathy for his charges, the battle dragons. The writing is very descriptive of the culture, architecture and religions of this fictitious time and place. Take a trip and visit, you'll want to return again and again!
