What kind of power is lurking inside him?
After a year of training to become a dragonrider, Jaevid Broadfeather has been sent home to rest during a three-month interlude. But when he returns to find the king drake has chosen Beckah Derrick as his new rider, Jaevid realizes something big is about to happen. Every fiber of his being is pushed to the breaking point as Jaevid battles through his avian year, preparing for the final graduation test of the battle scenario. But there is more standing in his way than a few pushups and fancy sword moves.
Jaevid must face a new fear as he is tormented by a gruesome nightmare of a mysterious gray elf warrior murdering the royal family of Maldobar. It seems obvious to him that this is some kind of message about how the war started long ago—until Felix assures him the king is very much alive. With his strange powers growing stronger by the day, and that violent dream replaying in his mind every night, Jaevid no longer wonders if he will pass his avian year or not . . . he wonders if he will even survive it.
The truth will soon be set loose.

As much as I loved the first book in this series, I loved this one even more. Little Jeavid is starting to learn more about his elf blood and what that means for him. He is growing into his heritage quickly and with that comes new troubles and trials. His bond with his Dragon is even stronger and he grows ever closer to him.
I think he handles everything that is thrown at him wonderfully. There is much happening that many grown men wouldn't be able to get through easily and here is Jaevid, still growing up, handling it remarkably.
I truly enjoyed reading this book. I find Nicole's writing style easy to read and to get lost in. Her characters come to life on the pages and the story stays fresh as she adds new twists and turns.
I look forward to more books by her. I recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a good story with dragons, battles, and lots of emotion.
