I have no idea what rating this book deserves. It has some fantastic points, plot, at leadt part of the world builing, but at the same time it left me strongly disappointed.

The book started with a bang, and an heroine worth salivating over. Then she was slowly morphed in the most irritating new trend, the NA grrlll. Stupid, placid, inoffensive. A dragon 'rider' with a mystical past turned into a child. Without reason. You keep wondering how. It really doesn't fit the story. This was warrior/sol

An ok read

I read both this book and Pathfinder's Way and found them interesting. The world is nicely complex and not so standard for fantasy series. I rate this one a two out of five, even though I liked it, for a number of reasons. First, there are just too many grammar issues. Apostrophes missing or added incorrectly, awkward commas, the wrong words used (ex: tact vs tack). It really needs some editing. Second, this book and even Pathfinder spend way touch time in the character's head and on d

Dragon Ridden is an entertaining, imaginative, well-written book with a fantastically feisty female lead. White created a unique world that combines fantasy, religion and culture with enough detail to illustrate Tate's surroundings without bogging down the reader. I like Tate's character! She is both funny and a badass. Despite her good intentions, she seems to constantly get into trouble--but she also fights back with gusto and smart -aleck remarks. She's my kind of heroine!

New to me author, good read

Characters were interesting and the plot sped along. Several typos show it wasn't thoroughly edited but beyond that the writing was good and it wasn't enough to become frustrating.

Dragon Ridden is a fun and exciting book full of secrets and danger. With each new twist and turn, more is revealed not only about the main character, Tate, but also about the strange and wonderful city in which she finds herself.

This novel has a fast paced plot with plenty of action and characters you'll be dying to know more about. Tate is sassy and tough, but still manages to have her soft moments. Ryu is mysterious and intense. And the minor characters are for the most part interesting an

Solid plot with a kick-ass (but still flawed) heroine? What's not to like? Oh wait, there's a dragon, too? Even better! While I did find the storyline a bit rough in places, the overall plot is compelling and never boring or predictable. I was always wondering where it was leading. Dragon-ridden has a heroine who's a real person. Tate is snarky, smart, insecure, lonely, loyal, fierce and has her own code that she holds to. But unlike some other heroines out there, she never comes across as cocky ...more

A young woman with no memory and a living tattoo must find her way in a strange new city.

This book had it all for me; thievery, magic,mystery and above all excellent character development. The plot was unique enough to seperate it from other similar novels and, contrary to other reviews, the editing and grammer were very good for a self-published novel. Perhaps I read a later version of the book.

There isn't a cliffhanger as such but there are definitely enough hints at a wider plot arc in the b

Wow..... quite pleasantly surprised!
When I first picked it up I found myself put off by all the detail but I soon grew addicted to this well crafted world. It was simply beautifully molded, so complex and addictive, I could not put it down. This is the first book in a while that kept me on my toes, I really was not sure what Tate was going to do next and I loved not being able to predict every step of the way. I hope there is going to be a next one, with all of the action, friendships and myster

Convoluted, long, with to many plot twist..

Tate, the heroine, is caught up in whirlwind of characters, plot twists and turns. Characters switch from good to bad with no clear line of a followable plot. There are so many characters that no one is really the hero. Was the hero Night, Dewdrop, Tempest, etc.... This book is not an enjoyable read...

Riveting Epic Fantasy

I chose the five star rating because this story was riveting to me. This is an author who is about the story with an action filled narrative. She did not pad her story with asinine main characters or porn that distracted from the story. My favorite characters in this story are Tate and Night. I hope T. A. White writes the sequel soon.

I really enjoyed this book! This book has lots of cool stuff in it, but I enjoyed the pirates and dragon parts the best. I knew this book was a stand alone book, but even so I checked to see if there were any more that came after this one so I could continue on with the adventure. I will be keeping my eye on this author!

Great characters, quick plot. This author knows how to pack a lot of action into a book. The main characters are interesting and fun.

I recommend Dragon-Ridden if you're looking for a fun, quick read, and I am hoping for a sequel.

Writing is my first love. Even before I could read or put coherent sentences down on paper, I would beg the older kids to team up with me for the purpose of crafting ghost stories to share with our friends. This first writing partnership came to a tragic end when my coauthor decided to quit a day later, and I threw my cookies at her head. Today, I stick with solo writing, telling the stories that ...more
