From #1 Bestselling author Morgan Rice comes a sweeping epic fantasy series: Rise of Dragons (Kings and Sorcerers—Book 1).
Kyra, a 15 year old girl who dreams of following in her father’s footsteps and becoming a famed warrior, is a finer archer than all the others. As she grapples to understand her skills, her mysterious inner power, and what secret is being kept from her about her birth, she comes to realize that she is different than the others, and that hers is a special destiny.
But her people live under the thumb of oppressive noblemen, and when she comes of age and the local lord comes for her, her father weds her off to save her. Kyra, though, refuses, and she journeys out on her own, into the dangerous wood—where she encounters a wounded dragon and ignites a series of events that will change the course of the kingdom forever.
15 year old Alec, meanwhile, sacrifices for his brother, taking his place in the draft, and is carted off to The Flames, a wall of flames a hundred feet high that keeps back the army of Trolls to the north. On the other side of the kingdom, Merk, a mercenary striving to leave behind his dark past, quests through the wood to become a Watcher of the Towers and help guard the Sword of Fire, the magical source of the kingdom’s power. But the Trolls want the Sword, too—and they have other plans, preparing for a massive invasion that could destroy the kingdoms forever.
With its strong atmosphere and complex characters, Rise of Dragons is a sweeping saga of knights and warriors, of kings and lords, of honor and valor, of magic, destiny, monsters and dragons. It is a story of love and broken hearts, of deception, of ambition and betrayal. It is fantasy at its finest, inviting us into a world that will live with us forever, one that will appeal to all ages and genders.

narrator was lovely! I felt my heart pounding as he narrated the exciting parts.
I give it 4 stars for the reason that i’m not too fond of the change in POV , will surely find time to read the book rather than listen to the audiobook to get more context in.
I can’t believe I just discovered this book now. It gave me vibes of how to train your dragon.
Very emotional good book
Definitely the book for children and teens, not adults. The author needs improvement on character depth. The main character just so happens to be the greatest archer/warrior alive just by pure raw talent and every interaction with conflict just happens to work out just so perfectly in her favor. Also just happens to know the perfect thing to say at all times to gain favor. Just shy of being an old school Disney fairy tale complete with animal sidekick, her trusty wolf. The author would definitely benefit from learning to create multiple characters with flaws and not simply a 2d “hero” that always comes out on top but instead has failures and imperfect encounters. Was easily predictable in every sense and cliched. It would greatly improve the writing and storyline for the author to create more depth. On the positive side the narrator was lovely.
