really liked it

Embittered, betrayed and haunted by his failure to save a village from a wyvern attack, Jason throws aside his life as a warrior and, as one of only 5 Dragon Masters, he resigns his commission to the king and lets his dragon go. He imposes self-exile on a deserted island large enough to sustain his needs for food, water and shelter…but it brings no peace.

The battle-scarred veteran isn’t allowed to wallow in self-pity or self-recrimination when Steel, the young son of an old friend arrives, insisting that his father’s dying wish was for Jason to finish his training to be a dragon master. Jason doesn’t want anything to do with that past life but, step by step, he gets dragged further into it, especially when the king’s messenger sends for him with news of war.

In his reluctant obedience, Jason discovers a truth waiting for him back home, a truth that pierces his conscience because he stubbornly refused to believe it for fifteen years. Now he must piece together his kingdom and his life.

Shawn Weaver writes with beautiful description and allows the characters to come to life by their own actions. He’s put a lot of thought into this land of warriors and dragons and it comes through with clarity, allowing the reader to get lost in Jason’s life. My only critique is the book’s need for editing. If you like fantasy novels with good vs evil, you’ll enjoy this book.
