Dragonriders are all that stand between Middang3ard and total annihilation. 

But their numbers are dwindling. 

With every passing day, more and more Dragonriders are falling under the scourge of the Dark One. 

The forces of humanity and their allies are desperate. They need a new hero to step up and turn the tide.

Myrddin, the resistance’s leader, thinks he might have found that someone…on Earth, of all places.

Word has just come from the east that the Dark One is launching his largest assault yet, but there is still time to stop him. If, that is, they can find someone good enough to take him on. 

Alex Bound just might be the rider they need.

But a human has never been accepted as a Dragonrider. 

Let alone a blind human...

Alex isn’t someone to step away from a fight. 

Not now, not ever, and she has no plans to start—even if she needs to ride a real dragon to make it happen.

or not.

The thing is I really like Ramy Vance’s writing and Michael Anderle’s – when they co-write with other authors but not with each other! To me it’s a very strange thing but it seems to me that they do their best work when they don’t go ‘dragons in space’! Because then they revert to young men writing Cowboys in Space – too much of their favourite sci-fi movies come over – ie Star Wars and bang bang you’re dead.

Oh, and can anyone tell me how to pronounce Middang3ard? Most annoying word ever.

This series irritated me in 2 dimensions – the bang bang you’re dead aspect, but also these very short books. I understand that it is difficult to keep the attention of young men, but they write longer books with other authors so they are more than capable. If they had taken the whole series and made it one book – or even two – that would have read better. I got tired of going onto KU and retrieving the next book after less than 30 minutes of reading.

Disappointed is all I can say.
