"From all directions, in the darkness, a great terror approaches this world. I mean to fight the terror, Daven, and I would make a weapon of you."
Daven Carrickson grew up as a beggar in the filthy alleys beneath the shadows of the palace. He's the son of a known thief, disgraced and despised. His only real talent is his ability with a sword, and his only real chance at finding honor or a home is a desperate dream of joining the King's Guard.
But Daven receives a new future when Master Claighan invites him to study magic at the Academy. The wizard offers to make him into a new kind of soldier: a swordsman equally skilled with forged blades and mystic forces.
Yet when conspiring forces destroy the wizard's plans, Daven finds himself wanted for treason and murder. Hunted by a great black beast of a dragon, caught between the King's Guard and a rebel force led by a rogue wizard, Daven's only hope of surviving is to become more than he's ever dreamed possible.
Taming Fire is the first book in the Dragonprince's Legacy.

Classic hero story, of an ordinary person placed in extraordinary circumstances, and the struggles of the journey, both internal and external.
The very carefully thought out glimpses into the world of magic and wizardry by placing us in a school for wizards are extraordinarily good.
Not quite Tolkien or Rowling, this is none-the-less a very good yarn by a talented story teller.
it was very well written with some great different characters. I like how Daven wasn't very powerful at first don't really like books where the main character is godlike. But I am disappointed that the second book isn't here :( please change this mister Pogue or everyday you don't I will shed a tear and a kitten will die.
Excellent story. Real characters both weak & strong. Your main character doesn't believe, isn't able to do the minor stuff yet surpasses the villain, all the way doubting his ability, continually debating with his fear. Very good. Thanks for sharing your hard work.
