Join Dragon School. Learn to Fly.

Sixteen-year-old Amel arrived at Dragon School just like everyone else – with a dream to ride dragons and join the Dominion Dragon Riders.

But Amel has a crippled leg and Dragon School training is grueling. Before she can even become an initiate, she must complete her First Flight on a dragon.

Can Amel survive First Flight and become a Dragon School initiate or will her dreams dash on the rocks below?


My Thoughts

Fans of Harry Potter & How To Train Your Dragon will love this!

I had to see what this episodic fiction was all about and I have to say I was not disappointed.

In this story, Amel has just come to the dragon school to become a rider and she is physically disabled which makes wanting to be a dragon rider quite difficult, but she doesn’t give up and decides rather than wallowing in self-pity to prove everyone wrong—showcasing tenacity and strength.

In spite of the length [it’s roughly around 20k words which is around 100 pages,] there is a great deal of character exploration and discovering where Amel fits inside of this world. We’re also shown the factions or rather Colors that the riders eventually choose based on their dragon’s color, too.

I found as soon as I was ensnared in the story it ended and left me wanting the next installment.

Honestly, a great and quick read!

Have you ever read episodic fiction before?
