Niell Torvald is desperate to prove himself—his father’s warlord kingdom depends on him. When a vicious attack on the way to the Draconis Order monastery nearly kills him, it becomes clear that grave trials await him on this path. Joreth, the wise monk who saves his life, advises caution upon entering the sacred halls. His mission is to learn arcane magic from the monks that will help to cement his father’s power, but Niell will need more than magical arts alone to navigate the challenges before him. Among the monks’ students, Niell meets the lovely and mysterious Char, who senses evil deep within the ranks of the Draconis Order’s members. She takes him to a dragon she has raised, Paxala, and the three of them become fast friends. Niell soon grows in strength as he and his fellow students gain ancient knowledge, and his closeness to Char blossoms into something more. But when Niell’s brothers grow impatient and attack the monastery in a bid to seize power, he will have to decide where his loyalties lie: with his warlord father’s domain, or the new friends he has made in the wider world....

    The cover art captured me right away! I was very interested to see this dragon in action. The title also gave away that someone would eventually ride a dragon. I was a little surprised at the twist and who ended up riding which dragon (no spoilers here). Just something that I thought was well done.I liked the story. The world had some complicated politics, which I also like to see. The writing style was good and kept me reading.I enjoyed the character development of this book at the beginning, and I liked the writing style, the characters were fairly believable, in that there were some things I liked about them and some things that drove me crazy (like real people). The one thing I found difficult about this book was that the pacing felt a little lopsided at times. What I mean by that is there would be a long segment where very little seemed to happen other than meeting the characters, then the build up to the climax seemed like a lot happened in a short amount of pages, and it ended abruptly.The End

    “I was a friend to dragons. It was like one of those old fairy tales. I was a dragon-friend, me, Neill of Torvald!” -Ava Richardson, Dragon GodThe Draconis Order monastery helps hold together the three kingdoms ruled by three brothers. When rumors of war and contention between the three kingdoms, a child from each noble is sent to the monastery to learn and in turn bring the kingdoms together. But no one knows where the Draconis Order gets their magic from or why the dragons are on their side. Dragon God, written by Ava Richardson, is a fun story that follows Neill through his struggles at the monastery and the dragons just outside the walls. Young Neill Torvold, the illegitimate son of a warlord, is sent on a private mission to find out the secrets of the Draconis Order to help his father, but when many challenging obstacles begins to face him can he succeed? Upon entering the Draconis Order monastery and realizing that many of the noble families have also sent one of their children to become a Draconis monk, he begins to go through the different tasks given to find out what type of monk they will be: Scribe, Protector or Mage. Neill tries to make friends while at the monastery but has a hard time due to his background, but after following Char, a princess of the North, he learns of her secret... A dragon!This was a fun book to sit down and read. I love dragons and like to read books with them in it, when I saw that the trilogy is called The First Dragon Rider, I almost expected it to be similar to Eragon (written by Christopher Paolini) but I did not see many similarities. I enjoyed the parts with the dragons in them. The book does bounce between Neill (main) and Char and is easy to follow along with. There were a few characters that I felt like were all too similar in their mannerisms and I didn’t like when it came to parts with them in it. I still haven’t decided if I want to finish reading the rest of the trilogy.

    Loved itLoved the book and want more. Cannot wait till book 2. I want more time between female dragon Paxala and Neil. Need more saving of the dragons. Please make longer and more pages of that free book that was on Facebook. I want to know more about south kingdom and how dragon and rider bond relationship is and see how they are treated and if they are truly good and why only one rider. Hope they be more deep relationship though and see how true bond is and how south kingdom protects it people. Also wonder how training is. Will be pre ordering book 2. Love to see more dragon communication and magic and what bond they got as it kind of confusing but I believe I know what Neil has. Though not sure due to Char relationship with Pax and able to talk to her and sit in front I think? Book 2 here I come. Wish it was book 3 series. One issue took to long to get to dragon part. I wanted it in beginning or few chapters in.

    AUDIOBOOK editionAn interesting twist on the dragon rider story. Recommending to younger listeners.It is heavy on the human side and very little on the dragon side. I would have likes a bit more background story on the dragons and how they came to be in that crater. A bit confused though... Are they captive? Why are the monks feeding them? Are they bad or are they good? Are they used by the abbott or are they using him?I liked that Niell is given a chance to prove himself, how he grows in character and he turns out to be an honest, loyal young man despite the many injustices thrown his way from a young age. Finally befriending Char and then her dragon, then their rescue opens up opportunities for him. Left with many questions though which hopefully will be answered in the next book. - 4 starsI liked Ms. Williams' voice she uses in the story-telling style that many young listeners would enjoy. - 4 stars

    Am not a big fan of books about dragons and such, but I have to admit that this one kept me totally entertained and needing to hear what would happen next. It had a seamless flow to it and very easy to understand without leaving you confused. The author did an excellent job writing this and the narrator did an excellent job telling it. A great novel for the young readers who like stories like this one.

    I found this book to be very slow in the beginning. It took me a long time to read it however the second part redeemed the story as the pace really picked up. I'm reading this one along with my 13 year old son and the agrees with me on the pacing. He read book 2 already and asked for 3 so I'm guessing he likes the series. I'll be reading book 2 shortly.Another issue I had with the book is that it needed another round of editing. I found several mistakes.

    Yes, there be Dragons!I love dragons and this is a wonderful well written story about these wondrous creatures and two young people who care for one in particular. Also there are mages and young ones in training. Friendship, treachery, threats of war are all part of the story. It is great. I highly recommend this book.
