PAPERBACK AND HARDBACK OPTIONS
The Price of Honor
Some traditions are meant to be broken.
Lailani has always known that being a woman means that she will never be a dragon rider, but when a messenger shows up demanding that all dragon riders must prepare for war, Lailani knows that her father’s crippling illness will get him killed. She must choose between two paths: let him go and die or put on his armor and go in his place.
Disguising herself as a boy, she joins the dragon riders and finds herself facing danger at every turn. With her father’s dragon the only friend she can trust, Lailani must learn to be a warrior and fight to save her homeland … if she can keep her secret that long.
Mulan meets Eragon in this epic tale!
Trial by Sorcery
Dragons can be dangerous … if you don’t bond with them first.
Eldwin wants to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a Dragon Guard, but not for the glory. With his family dead and their lands dying, the opportunity to join the dragon rider school is all he has. But before Eldwin can bond with a dragon and guard the skies, he must pass three tests to prove his worth.
Compassion, magical aptitude, and armed combat.
He’s determined to pass, but his maimed arm is a constant reminder of his disadvantage. Will the obstacles Eldwin faces keep him from reaching his dreams, or will he finally see what it’s like to ride the skies?
Fans of Eragon and Pern will feel right at home.
A Bond of Flame
Sometimes there’s a fine line between truth and a lie.
Eldwin’s quest to become a dragon rider seems hopeless, but he won’t let his dream to bond with a dragon die. A sell-sword job with a caravan promises a decent payment, and offers him a chance to continue his quest.
The caravan he guards has a secret, and when he uncovers it, he can hardly believe his change of luck. However, despite the turn of events, his life only gets harder and a chance meeting with an enemy brings Eldwin to a moral dilemma.
He must now face the truth, which will shatter everything he’s believed.
The Warrior's Call
Darkness threatens the land.
With an evil creature killing dragons and riders alike, the False King’s reign of terror spills across the border. While the king of Osnen and the Citadel’s riders struggle to stem the assault, Eldwin flies to the Conclave to plead for help from the other schools.
Unless the schools unite and arrive in time, the world is doomed.
The Coin of Souls
Sometimes death is only the beginning.
The Island of Lost Souls gives Eldwin hope that he’ll see his father again, but the island holds many secrets—and hidden dangers.
As he draws closer to the end of his quest, the island will push him to his limit … and cost him everything.
Wing of Terror
Some souls never find rest.
Eldwin’s decision to bring a soul back from the island proved to be a costly mistake. Innocent people are dying, and the blame falls on his shoulders. Where magic and steel have been the answer before, now they are useless to stop the reign of terror.
But there is hope.
If Eldwin can find the hidden fortress of the Assembly, he just might get the help he needs. With more questions than answers, Eldwin’s time is running out.
Eyes of Stone
If only statues could speak.
As the Order works to rebuild, Eldwin is promoted and given his first official task: investigate the disappearance of a missing child. What he assumes will be an easy assignment quickly proves more troublesome and sinister than he imagined, especially when he discovers there’s more than one child that has vanished.
A mysterious figure is behind it all, and despite the use of magic, the figure continues to evade Eldwin at every turn. To make matters worse, something in the city of Tiradale is making Sion sick.
With mounting problems, and an angry baron on his hands, Eldwin must find the children before he’s thrown into the dungeon.

Armed with new knowledge, Maren suspects she knows the source of the disruption … and it’s all her fault.
Smoke and Shadow
The shadows hide a secret.
With Maren bound to the ferryman’s boat by a powerful enchantment, and magic all but gone, Eldwin must find another way to free her.
Beneath the Terranese school lies a possible answer, but a sinister creature lies in wait — one that even a dragon is no match for.
Escaping alive isn’t the only problem. A wicked man is gathering strength using the dead, and he has his vengeful gaze set on Katori.
Getting magic back isn’t an option now … it’s a necessity.
The Dark Rider
There’s a traitor among the riders.
The Citadel is attacked, and the already weakened Order must face a new threat – one that isn’t just flesh and blood.
Eldwin is summoned by the Assembly to fulfill his oath. To stop the coming darkness from spreading, he must venture into the Void, the realm between the living and the dead.
As cities fall and lives are lost, the scattered riders will need more than magic and dragons … they’ll need the Assembly.
