Hold on to your dragon! You’re about to journey through a brave new world of hearty survivors, straight into a dragon riding, troll fighting adventure for the ages.
After struggling for more than two centuries to tame the inhospitable, dragon infested Islands where they washed up, the descendants of the survivors of a lost passenger ship are now striving to tame the Mainland they have found.
But the Goblin King, an Ivory antlered demon called Gravelbone, has a different plan for the men who are invading his territory. He and his Nightshade are rallying the trolls to defend their lands. With the help of the dragons, goblins, and orcs they plan on rendering the wall the humans have built useless so that they can drive man back to the islands from where they came.
When stubborn King Blanchard finally accepts that the kingdom is under attack it may be too late, and the only ones who can save the people of the Mainland have been locked away in the dungeon.
Join some brave young men and their mentor, a grizzled old King’s Ranger, and a particularly clever young magic wielding woman, as they traverse the wild frontier and sail to King’s Island to warn the King of the warring trolls. Then hold on for your life as you tear through the pages, because the pure blooded dragons they have befriended have another plan all together.

Exclusive Snippet:The great weight of Phen’s body and the growing number of little eel serpents sucking onto him was making his crossing slower than he’d hoped. He could hear the coins and jewels sliding into the water as the iron skeletons took up pursuit. Phen felt like he weighed a ton. He was nearly covered with the wiggly eel-like things. The added weight threatened to drag him down, but he pushed himself onward. Finally, just as he felt the thumping tink of one of those curved blades slam across his stony shoulders, he made it to the other side. He heaved himself up, and backed kicked at the cherry eyed thing on his way up into the tunnel floor. Only two of the skeletons were crossing. The other was trying to get its footing on the loose mound of coins. Phen had hoped to have all three of them in the water, but this would have to do.
As the closest skeleton reached up to pull itself into the tunnel, Phen kicked it back. He felt the dragon’s tear medallion at his neck tingle as its power flowed into his spell. He hadn’t expected that. Slowly at first, the moat’s water stilled and clouded as the surface iced over. Within moments it was frozen solid. The eels were frozen in place and the two ice locked skeletons were thrashing their arms and making silent angry faces behind their burning eyes. Phen saw the other skeleton start across the ice after him. It kicked and took two steps then fell hard as its hard metal feet lost all traction on the ice. Phen dropped to his belly and rolled back and forth across the cavern floor crushing the dozens of flailing little things that were stuck to him. Most of them let go, but not all. Without bothering with the last few, he tore off down the tunnel. Oarly and his ax were better suited to deal with the remaining skeleton. The sudden thought that it was still several hours until the tide receded, and that the pool wouldn’t stay frozen that whole time came to him. Phen was trying to think, but when he darted into the narrow passage all thoughts left his brain completely. He couldn’t fathom the site he saw.
Oarly was standing naked from the waist down, tipping a flask back while swinging his free arm round and round for balance. After he gulped his sip, Oarly started humming and dancing a dwarven jig.To find out more follow @DahgMahn on twitter, or visit www.mrmathias.com
