What kind of power is lurking inside him?
After a year of training to become a dragonrider, Jaevid Broadfeather has been sent home to rest during a three-month interlude. But when he returns to find the king drake has chosen Beckah Derrick as his new rider, Jaevid realizes something big is about to happen. Every fiber of his being is pushed to the breaking point as Jaevid battles through his avian year, preparing for the final graduation test of the battle scenario. But there is more standing in his way than a few pushups and fancy sword moves.
Jaevid must face a new fear as he is tormented by a gruesome nightmare of a mysterious gray elf warrior murdering the royal family of Maldobar. It seems obvious to him that this is some kind of message about how the war started long ago—until Felix assures him the king is very much alive. With his strange powers growing stronger by the day, and that violent dream replaying in his mind every night, Jaevid no longer wonders if he will pass his avian year or not . . . he wonders if he will even survive it.
The truth will soon be set loose.

To My Readers
First of all, I’d like to thank you all so much for all your support. So many of you have gone out of your way to send me emails, leave comments and reviews, and even draw fanart for The Dragonrider Chronicles. I appreciate each and every gesture! Knowing there are people out there who love these books as much as I do is truly rewarding and humbling. It’s validation of a lifelong dream, and I could never thank you all enough for that. You have to know that each time I get a message, tweet, or Facebook comment about these books, it absolutely makes my day!
Second, I’d like to apologize for the cliffhanger . . . sort of. I’m sorry it had to end that way! I always try to leave my endings in a way that makes me excited to start the next book, so that hopefully you’ll feel the same way when you read it. But I promise not to leave you all hanging like that at the end of the series! I’m not that cruel!
Lastly, I want to extend a hand to my readers young and old to engage with me about these books. I don’t want to be some standoff entity. I wrote these books for young readers, and so answering their questions and hearing their opinions is invaluable to me! I love hearing from my fans, and I’m always happy to talk to them. So if you see me at a conference, book signing, at Starbucks (usually on Friday or Saturday nights), or even at the grocery store—please don’t hesitate to stop me and talk to me! I’m never too busy to talk about books.
Thank you all again for reading! See you again in volume three!
