Blurb:

Join Dragon School. Learn to Fly.

Sixteen-year-old Amel arrived at Dragon School just like everyone else – with a dream to ride dragons and join the Dominion Dragon Riders.

But Amel has a crippled leg and Dragon School training is grueling. Before she can even become an initiate, she must complete her First Flight on a dragon.

Can Amel survive First Flight and become a Dragon School initiate or will her dreams dash on the rocks below?

Fans of Anne McCaffrey’s Dragon Riders of Pern, Christopher Paolini’s Eragon and Rachel E. Carter’s First Year will love Dragon School.

My Review Dragon School: First Flight:

Sixteen year old Amel has dreamed all her life of being a dragon rider. In order to be a dragon rider Amel must first make it through dragon school and her first flight riding on a dragon.

All her life Amel has been talked about and called names because she is different from others. Amel has a physical disability that makes everything she does harder to do but Amel is one tough fighter that doesn’t let her disability get in her way or stop her from doing the things she wants to do.

Amel never expected it to be any different at the dragon school but a girl could hope. Even though others always treated her badly Amel never returned the favor. Amel always thought of everyone else before herself never being selfish. Amel was a quiet girl but she always stood on the side of right and truth.

I have never read many books about dragons so I was sort of skeptical when I saw the title but I though ok give it a chance and I am so glad I did because this was the best dragon book I have ever read and I can’t wait for the next book Dragon School: Initiate. I love the story and the world that the author has created with the school and riding on the back of a dragon and living on the side of a cliff. I loved all or most of the characters and can’t wait to read more of their stories. I loved Amel’s dragon, Raolcan and Leng and his dragon Ahlskibi and Savette and Tamas and more.

While Dragon School: First Flight is a short read it is filled with just as much action as a full length novel and leaves you wanting nothing more at the end than wanting to know more about these characters and their stories. 



Dragon School: Initiate
by Sarah K.L. Wilson
Expected Publication: January 10, 2018
Genre: Fantasy, Dragons, Magic, Science Fiction, Young Adult

Blurb:

Magic comes to Dragon School. Can it be trusted?

With First Flight behind her, sixteen-year-old Amel believes she can finally settle into her studies and learn to be a Dragon Rider.

But when a friend is brutally injured, another has a dark secret, and Amel is entrusted with a vital message, she must question where her loyalties lie. Worse, Magikas have arrived at Dragon School and they bring both change and new prejudice against Amel.

With the home Amel found at Dragon School quickly disappearing, will she know who to trust or will her new friendships disappear as quickly as her safety?

Fans of Anne McCaffrey’s Dragon Rider’s of Pern, Christopher Paolini’s Eragon and Rachel E. Carter’s First Year will love Dragon School.

My Review Dragon School: Initiate:

Sixteen year old Amel has taken her first flight and survived. Trouble is brewing on the home front. Leng has returned to the school injured with a very important message that he thrust into Amel’s hands right before passing out. A message that she cannot read only a Dominion Evoy or a Purple Dragon can read it. Amel must keep the message safe until she can safely deliver the message to the right person.

Amel and the other students are told by their teachers that they are to pack up and move out but are not giving all the details. With Leng not being able to ride his own dragon Ahlskibi with his injury he will be riding with Amel on Raolcan that is if he will allow it. Dragons are very particular as to who they allow to ride them. Most of the time it is only their bonded dragons don’t trust humans no more than humans trust them.


I have fallen in love with dragons especially Raolcan. I so love this world that the author has created in Dragon School. I have loved seeing the world through Amel’s eyes while soaring through the skies on the back of a dragon. Dragon School: Initiate has been an epic journey one in which I can’t wait to continue hopefully in the near future.
