Publisher's Summary

*** Finalist in the Readers Favorite Reviews and Book Award Contest***
"A ray of light, a stain of shadow, shall endure to breathe life and death into the future."
The war between the Guardians and the Shadow Riders ended in total devastation. The final battle killed all the dragons and left nothing but fields of ash. A small clutch of dragon eggs was all that remained to provide hope for the future.
Five hundred years later, the ability to use magic is a death sentence and dragons are remembered as a curse. But the unhatched dragons sing for their riders...and six lives will be changed forever.
The elements of magic are drawn together as the dragons' call leads them on a journey where they learn everything they've been taught to believe about magic and dragons is wrong. With the last of the dragons and the world at stake, they will risk everything to heed the call. But an evil from the past rises again. Shadow Dragons ride the dawn once more...

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes with a warning about the narrator. Incorrect emphasis on words and irritating and unnecessary pauses detract from the story which is a pity.

Gripping new saga

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Very few of my friends read books of this genre, that being said I would still recommend this to them. The premise of this story shares similarities with the inheritance cycle, but the characters the world in which this is set sets it apart from eragon. I like the diversity of the characters, they all have stories of their own to tell. However I think it would've been better to have a smaller core of characters to work on. I really liked the way the magicians had their powers split between the elements, this was also refected in the dragons.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Embers at Galdrilene?

When rylin, emallya's dragon emerges from the lake is a good moment.


Have you listened to any of Valerie Gilbert’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No too long for that


Any additional comments?

The dragons deserve more of the spotlight, I want to know what they are thinking.
