In Lush Valley, it’s a crime to even talk about dragons…

When Ezaara meets Zaarusha the Dragon Queen, she’s swept up in a blaze of emotion and they imprint, forming a deep bond. Ezaara must give up her home and family to become the new Queen’s Rider. Ignorant and unprepared, how can she possibly succeed?

Luckily, she has a dragon master — although rumors say she’d be better off with the enemy. Read the full description here.

If you love epic coming-of-age fantasy, heart-pounding adventure, true love and dragons, Dragon Hero — Riders of Fire is for you.
