I bought this book on a bit of a whim and didn't regret it, it hooked me from early on in the book. there are some real twists though out the book that keep you wanting to read more.

I would recommend.

Following all the good reviews but it fell rather flat. Quite difficult to say what was lacking because the idea and overall story was O.K. but it seamed to lack substance, and depth and also felt as if everything had to be done in a rush and to me came across as unfinished and could do with a bit (or a lot ) of tweaking. Also bit too much graphic violence for my taste.

So overall quite dissapointed and will not be reading the rest of the series as none of the characters with the possible exception of the young boy (think that's Ricky) made me interested enough to continue.

Absolutely love this book. It starts quite sedate, setting the scene and characters and you may think it is not going far but persevere, once the action starts it does not stop, I was so hooked.
The writing and some of the conversations are so down to earth, for a fiction book, it had me chuckling in places.
Give it a read, well worth it. It also has a peek preview into the next book which I am downloading now..

I really enjoyed the storyline and it could of been fantastic. The author has some fantastic ideas but i dont beleave he has the skill to bring them to life. There is not enough back story for the charecters and some things are left unexplained altogether. The story is extremly fast paced and is very rushed as if the author just wanted to get to the end. I beleave that there is going to be another book released soon but it is going to centre on only one off the dragoneers. I think the author should off made the first three books into four to give more detailed descriptions and more back storys, but, on the other hand, the books are inexpensive and if you want something just for train journys and such then these series of books will do the job nicely.

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!

If like me you have a thing for books that explore the partnership of humans and dragons, this book is for you and you will pleased to know that if you do enjoy it that the author has already written others in this series.

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.

Storyline: M.R. Mathias' The Royal Dragoneers is an outstanding new take on a very old fantasy theme: dragons, trolls and magic.

Jenka De Swasso wants nothing more than to be a King's Ranger and, as usual for someone with a destiny larger than themselves, his life takes a sudden and dramatic turn after an encounter with a young dragon named Jade.

The goblins have a new king, Gravelbone, and are organizing with the "mudged" dragons to drive man out of their lands. Gravelbone intends to destroy the king's huge defensive wall, poison the entire kingdom and make the survivors into his slaves.

Zah and Jenka are the only ones that can save the kingdom from the demon Gravelbone and his nightshade. Together, they must convince the king of the impending war, avoid being locked away for being dragon sympathizers and learn the true nature of their bonds with their pure blooded dragons, Jade and Crystal.

Grammar/Spelling: I noticed some inconsistencies with the spelling of a character named Rikky. Occasionally, it was spelled with only one "k". There were also some minor punctuation problems that another read through with a beta reader could definitely take care of.

Character Development: The characters range from a powerful Druida to a stubborn young King's Ranger to dragons, each with their own form of magic to help move the story along very nicely.

One of the standout characters for me was Rikky. He is barely a teenager and even at his young age, he shows a ferociousness and tenacity seldom seen even in men twice his age. Even after a debilitating attack from the goblins, he is determined to seek revenge on the Goblin King at nearly any cost.

Writing Style: Mr.
