Book Description

*** 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...

Editorial Reviews


Reviewed by Lit Amri for Readers' Favorite 
"I love stories that involve dragons, "Embers of Galdrilene" didn't disappoint me. Every character was introduced appropriately with no rush.The characters were absolutely well-created, unique and believable, with his or her own background story. This is a great book with classic fantasy fiction of dragons and magicians brilliantly written by A.D. Trosper..." ~ Open Book Society

About the Author

Born in Kansas, I spent a lot of my childhood moving around. I've lived in Kansas, Oklahoma, Washington State (around Seattle), and southern California. I had many great adventures growing up. I'm now settled down in Kansas with my wonderful husband, three children, assorted cats and my wonderful dogs Roxie and Abby.

I've been an avid lover of fantasy since I was young child. Dragons, elves, fairies, dwarves, and other denizens of the fantasy world as well as magic have always fascinated me. As I grew up, I developed an interest in vampires, zombies and my reading branched out to take in paranormal and urban fantasy.

I don't have any special writing credits to my name other than a wildly active imagination and the ability to form that imagination into written stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Fantasy June 20, 2012
4.5/5 stars

I love me a good fantasy. And dragons make things even better. :) That said, let's get to the book.

Before reading this, I didn't realize it wasn't a stand-alone book. So now I have to wait to find out what happens. Arg. I'm not really a patient person. So be aware before you start reading: while many things are resolved at the end of this book, there's a great big problem that isn't.

The characters are well thought out, and the plot is great. I loved Galdrilene itself, and the idea of the dragon eggs singing to those who are meant to hatch them.

There are a lot of Point-Of-View characters in this one. Some of them have several chapters throughout the book, others have much less POV time. It could have flopped, but it didn't. It was done well, and it worked. My one complaint about the many POVs is that there are times you see the same thing from multiple POVs, which honestly got to be a bit much. I sometimes felt like the story was stalled while we saw so many views of the same thing. HOWEVER. I know myself. If we'd only seen from one person's POV, I'd have been unhappy that I didn't get to see how the other characters reacted to things. I know, you just can't win can you?

5.0 out of 5 stars Embers has something for everyone... January 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
It's been hard to find the perfect blend of fantasy...that is until I found Embers at Galdrilene.

A.D. Trosper has created a unique fantasy world that is as vividly-rich and as amazingly-detailed as a finely-woven tapestry. Layer upon layer has been carefully crafted to create a story that delivers on every level - magic, adventure, intrigue, the forces of good against evil, and dragons.

I especially loved all of the characters and their interaction as the story unfolds. Trosper excels at exceptional dialogue and the witty banter often had me smiling or laughing out loud. The action-packed battle scenes held my attention, especially when told through various character perspectives.

I would also like to give a resounding cheer to Trosper for creating what I found to be one of the most intriguing evil characters I have run across in quite a while - Sadira. The creepy factor intermixed with the dark fantasy aspect within this character is a perfectly-blended stroke of genius.

Embers truly has something for everyone no matter what genre you enjoy. Dive into this dynamic debut novel about dragons, magic, and adventure. You won't be disappointed and I am eagerly awaiting the sequel in this trilogy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Embers Burns With a Fire of Its Own December 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
After far too long, my TBR pile finally presented me with a book I've been dying to dig into: "Embers at Galdrilene," by A.D. Trosper. And, armed with a bit `o time on my hands (courtesy of the long holiday weekend), I did just that.

Wow! Trosper really hits one out of the park on her first try. I'm no expert on fantasy, but I know what I like ... and I like this book a lot. It didn't hurt that a few early scenes reminded me of some of my all-time favorite stories (Kellinar and Serena's early flight was reminiscent of the hobbits' flight to Bree in LOTR (including an ill-fated stop at an inn and an encounter with a dark rider), and when Serena calls Kellinar a scoundrel, a similar exchange between Leia and Han flashed through my mind), but, make no mistake, "Embers" burns with a fire all its own.

Along the way, I was introduced to some awesome new adjectives--dragon-blasted and fate-forsaken being my two faves--and took great pleasure in this new adage: "beauty is only a lamp wick away."

So true!

The novel is chock full of characters--from heroes/heroines to dragons to evil ones--so I took to jotting quick notes to help me keep track at first. Trosper's characters are compelling and well described, so I don't recommend this for all readers; just the ones, like me, who may be inclined to read faster than he/she can properly digest.

Kirynn is my favorite character. Not only is she intelligent, loyal, and skilled ... but she's also totally babe-alicious and doesn't give a damn. In fact, she offers my favorite line in the book (while ruminating on her physical attraction to Vaddoc): "As long as he doesn't get too attached or try to make a claim on her, she wouldn't mind taking a turn in bed with him someday.

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece in fantasy... August 31, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I received this book as a gift, and I was so impressed by this excellent story! The characters and setting were vividly detailed, and the storyline was unique and enticing. I loved that the characters had strong bonds and connections to other beings, and Trosper did a magnificent job with pacing and stringing together the plot. The term bondmate was beautifully used, and the telepathy between the characters made for a fascinating read.

A.D. Trosper has a wonderful talent with words, and should be considered a master in the fantasy genre. Everything seemed to come alive and hit at the emotions of each and every moment the author described. It was as if you were there, experiencing the sorrow or joy alongside the characters, which is no easy feat and one that only truly talented writers can claim as their own.

I couldn't put the book down, and read it in less than a week. I cannot commend the author enough for creating a story that was both vivid and enjoyable enough to leave me begging for more!
