If she can’t bond with a dragon she’ll be expelled for good…
After three unsuccessful terms at Alveria’s Dragon Akademy, seventeen-year-old tamer trainee, Mari Asadottier, has one last shot to bond with a dragon. If she fails, she’ll be barred from her dream of joining the Dragon Guard.
Normal life is impossible for Prince Kai Afkarr-Younger who has been stuck in his dragon form for two years. Unable to shift, he fears his draconian instincts could overwhelm him. Could he lose control of his magic as well?
Meanwhile, a sickness is spreading through the land and new monsters are terrorizing Alveria. Mari and Kai might be the only people who can stop it. But a secret connection to the beasts could tear Mari and Kai apart. If the Alverian council finds out, their bond could be forcibly broken, but if they can’t stop the sickness it could already be too late. Can they save their bond and stop Alveria from falling into chaos?
Queen of the Dragons Ava Richardson invites you to immerse yourself in a dragon-filled world with epic magic, fearless heroes and, at its heart, the deep bond between dragon and rider.

What Readers Are Saying
Richard Buie — Reader
“I loved it!! I am a dragon fanatic and this was a well written, fast paced read! A little different version of dragon communication and attitude than Anne McCaffrey’s books (which I absolutely love by the way!) I would highly recommend this book to any one, any age! Already started on the 2nd book!!!”

“Very entertaining! I am looking forward to reading more stories about these characters. The story was paced very well, held my attention and when I had to stop reading I would anticipate my next session. Can’t ask for more from a story.”
Tara B — Reader
“I loved this book! It is a new spin on the ‘dragon bonding with human’ dynamic. Two people, not one, are chosen by the dragon to be its riders. And when they are a pair as mis-matched in station and experience as Thea and Seb are, the fur is going to fly! I can’t wait for the next books – just got book two and started reading it, hope it’s as good as book one!”

“I have enjoyed dragons and their world all my life. However, the new direction Ava Richardson has taken is fantastic. I love the interaction between dragon and rider. But, I have always felt there was something else needed, another element to really bring the dragon rider bond full circle. Two riders and their dragon all working together to fulfil their oath was inspiring. I look forward to the continuing story that, Ava has begun to unfold. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves dragons as I do. Ava Richardson has something truly special to give, to all who love dragons and the world they encompass.”
