There’s only one hope of fighting an ancient evil….
Uzmantine has awoken and is determined to crush Chamenos underfoot. As society teeters on the brink of civil war, the only hope for survival rests in the hands of Pieter and his dragon, Gloriox. The task is too big for one person, but Pieter is the only one who can teach the citizens of Chamenos what they need to know about becoming dragon riders. And with his growing grasp of Chamentine magic, he poses the biggest threat to Uzmantine and her gathering forces.
But Pieter still needs to learn what it means to be a leader—especially when sacrifice and death are necessary costs of victory.
The fight has just begun, and Uzmantine and her Draznar won’t stop. Pieter will do anything to keep his people safe, but there’s no way to avoid the casualties of war. And the grief of loss may be too strong to overcome.
Queen of the Dragons’ Ava Richardson invites you to immerse yourself in a dragon-filled world with epic magic, fearless characters 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.”

“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.”
