Took me a while to warm to it but once the intrigue started it had me hooked - and kept me reading so late I can barely keep my eyes open. Gripping stuff!

Better review to come :)

I was hooked on Anne McCaffrey when I was young. Still, love those books, so I gobbled this one up and it delivers, fun, action-packed and characters you love. I want to be a Dragon Rider again. Thank you, Eileen Mueller, for helping me experience that feeling again as a reader. Can't wait to get the next book. Highly recommend.

“A great fantasy read,” says Dean O’Gorman, the actor who played Fili the dwarf in Jackson’s cinema version of The Hobbit. And it’s true that lovers of high fantasy fiction will devour Ezaara, the first book in Eileen Mueller’s epic Riders of Fire series. Another YA coming of age story, this book focuses on Ezaara, a teen with healing skills and a competitive streak. Raised in sheltered (almost backward) Lush Valley, one day, out of the blue, she’s whisked away by a dragon, none other than Queen ...more

Shelves: fantasy, ya
A solid tale of adventure and empowerment, with lashings of dragons and monsters and sword fighting and treachery thrown in for good measure. Ezaara is the story of a young girl forced to grow up sooner than she ever thought she would, to don the mantle and responsibility of leadership against overwhelming odds. Looking forward to this series, because these stories of taking charge of our own destinies are the stories our daughters need to be reading.

Great fun! A fast-paced adventure set in an amazing Swiss-German influenced fantasy setting.
I loved the unique touches of this well-developed world: the distinctive dialog, culture and rituals that set apart from others of this ilk. The book may be called Ezaara, but it is filled with a fascinating cast of other characters, including the wonderful but tortured Master Roberto. The plucky Ithsar was another favourite. I hope to read more of her story in the coming books

I was swept away by this epic fantasy - and if you love dragons, I think you'll love it too! :)

This is an engaging coming-of-age hero’s journey set in a realm of dragons and uniquely, creative magic. While it is definitely Young Adult in themes and action, it is a very well-written, clean read. This fantasy is full of meaningful conflict and satisfying resolution. Ezaara is ripe for film.

If you loved Dragonriders of Pern, grab this book. I read it in on sitting, can't wait for the next one.

Fantasy dealing with dragon riding is my absolutely favorite genre, so I read books just like this all of the time. That being said, Ezaara tops the list! I fell in love with the depth of the characters and all the details that make up their lives. The connection they have with the dragons is perfectly balanced, and the whole concept of "being a dragon of fire" ...awesome! I love this book, and can't wait to read the next one in the series. I'll also be buying some of these to give away to frien ...more

Ezaara knows there is a plan for more for her life. She just doesn't know that it will be filled with dragons and mystery and adventure! Wonderful adventure story! A story well worth reading! I can't wait to read the second book! I know it will be money well worth spending!

Oh wow

After reading the two novelettes I knew I was in for a great adventure. What an amazing story is unfolding before me. I have not found a series of books to rival the Dragons of Pern until now. The characters are beautifully described and the world they inhabit totally depicted. I was enthralled from page one, fell asleep reading. I highly recommend you grab a copy, curl up in your favourite reading spot and enjoy a fabulous series.

Awesome epic fantasy

I give this 4 stars because of the excellent writing. Eileen Mueller has created a wonderful world of magic, adventure, dragons, monsters, spies, traitors, and unforgettable characters. I love the personality and life that she breathed into the characters and especially the dragons. Lots of grand adventure and mystery and love permeates the entire book from beginning to end. I highly recommend this book for all ages.

Ezaara from Eileen Mueller's Riders of Fire series is an excellent beginning for a fantasy revolving around dragons. I found the characters to be well developed, diverse, and interesting. The story/plot flows along to a cliffhanger, urging the reader into the second book in the series. While not a fan of cliffhangers in middle grade books, I recommend this book to upper middle grade/young teen readers, especially those who enjoy multi book series. ...more

A strong start to the series and a great addition to middle reader fantasy. I enjoyed it very much. It is similar to Anne McCaffrey's Pern books in terms of the relationship between dragons and riders, but not in other ways. There are some creepy monsters and a possible time travel element and I am interested to see where that goes.
