Rise of the Dragon King: Book Five of the Dragoneer Saga
In this episode of the Dragoneer Saga, the kingdom is beginning to find its roots as trade ships and men travel and barter with the Old World Clover mapped for them all. Banished King Richard finds an adventure of his own; One that might just lead to the end of the Dragoneers.
Clover and her infamous dragon Crimzon return to help our heroes fight an evil wizard from the Old World before he and his colossal monsters ravage the Mainland of what is now known as the New World.
King Richard has been banished for the last eight years, when visitors inform him of King Chad’s desire for him to marry one of his daughters. Richard jumps at the opportunity. He uses his new position to get close to King Chad, and gains another dragon on his quest to destroy the Dragoneers. Meanwhile, the Dragoneers have other problems with a powerful wizard poisoning the city’s water supply.
This was non-stop action from beginning to the end. I like that the dragons had such varied personalities and could voice their opinions. At times the battle would get so intense that I wasn’t sure the good guys would come out on top, or even survive. I love that about Mathias’ books. He makes you get caught up in the heat of the battle and you are so invested in the characters that you actually fear for them. It makes me sad that this was the ending to the saga, but I feel the author did give it a great ending.
**The above opinions are 100% my own, whether I purchased the book or it was given to me to review.
