Book Description

The Royal Dragoneers was deemed one of the top indie fantasy releases of 2010 by Fantasy Book Critic, and was listed in the first ever Publishers Weekly Indie Select issue in Dec. 2010. It was also nominated for The Locus Poll 2011. This 115k word dragon-fantasy is the first full length installment of The Dragoneers Saga. The novella-length primer, The First Dragoneer, also by M. R. Mathias, is available FREE in the Amazon Kindle Store, for a limited time.

M. R. Mathias has several other titles available from Amazon as well.

The Royal Dragoneers

After struggling for more than two centuries to tame the inhospitable islands where they washed up, the descendants of the survivors of a lost passenger ship are now striving to tame a more substantial "Mainland" they have found.

For as long as mankind has been stranded, dragons have been their sworn enemies.

But no longer...

Sixteen year-old Jenka De Swasso wants nothing more than to follow in his father's footsteps and become a King's Ranger. But when he one day finds himself surrounded by vicious trolls, a young pure-blood dragon comes to his rescue and they become bond-mates.

Meanwhile, the goblins have a new king, Gravelbone, and have allied themselves with the tainted "mudged" dragons to drive mankind out of its lands. Setting his sights on a vast manmade wall, Gravelbone and his wicked hell-born Nightshade, seek to poison the entire human kingdom and enslave any survivors.

Jenka and his companion, a druida warrior named Zah, soon realize that they and their bonded dragons are mankind's only hope for survival. Forced to defy their arrogant king's wishes, the pair set out on a desperate quest to stop Gravelbone's forces and save mankind from its terrifying fate.

With action so intense you'll forget to breathe and intrigue around every corner, The Royal Dragoneers is one adventure you cannot miss.

Hold on to your dragon... your journey is about to begin!

5.0 out of 5 stars An exciting read for young adults 20 Nov. 2014
By Sheryl
Format:Kindle Edition
The story reminds a little of “How to train your dragon” an animated movie of a young boy who befriends a dragon and hides the fact because his tribe and specifically his father are dragon hunters. Here too we have the young hero Jenka befriending a dragon “Jade” and keeping it a secret from everyone. Jenka like the hero of the animated movie lives in an inhospitable land but unlike the hero of the movie who only possessed a father, Jenka only had his mother to live with. The king and the kingsrangers were as thirsty of the dragon blood as the tribe of the movie. However, here the differences ends. The story is immensely interesting as it takes us into an adventurous world where the fittest survive and where Jenka a mere boy would have to use all his resources to save the mankind from the evil clutches of Gravelbone. A very exciting read for young adults.

2.0 out of 5 stars Read a lot better ~ read a lot worse! 8 Nov. 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
Bought this for my kindle after reading the sample that hooked me in. Not to taxing to read, simple plot but didn't really take to any of the main characters and nearly gave up completing it! Did finish it and have not given up on this author - just started The Sword and The Dragon!
