Written for young adults, with just a handful of mild profanities (shxx and damx) but no f-bombs or vulgarities. If this were a film it would probably be rated PG-13.

I’ve included a small excerpt below, so readers can peruse the style of presentation utilized by the author.
'...Sure there were other mithril forges, and many other regular forges that could pick up making the dragon weapons, but not with the speed this one had.
Just as quickly the thought struck him that anyone trying to frame the dragons would have picked this as a target also. The fear it would generate with the weapon production slowed was assured.
Josef didn’t waste any time getting to work. He wasn’t sure what he was supposed to find that others before him hadn’t. The outside wall had been blasted away, bricks and mortar missing. The walls were black from the scorching fire of the dragon’s final moments. But everything had already been cleared away. The inside of the forge was immaculate.
"It was picked clean earlier,” Drex said. “We are just waiting on the go-ahead to start rebuilding it.”
“Geffrey, do you know if the yellows picked anything up?” Josef wondered.
The boy shook his head. “Nope. Just like the roof, there wasn’t anything they could read. The energy was muffled.”
"The fire fruit?” Drex wondered.
"I haven’t seen any rinds,” Josef mused.
He searched high and low for any clue someone might have missed, but at...'
Like all good sequels, this is an interesting stand-alone without a cliffhanger ending. Even so, there is a hint of more to come in yet another sequel.
Four stars out of five.
Comments regarding your opinion of this book or of my review, whether favorable or unfavorable, are always welcome. If you buy the book based on my review and become disappointed, especially, I do want to know that and I want to understand how I can improve as a book reviewer. Just please be polite.
There are also plenty of parallels to our world; be yourself, acceptance, friendship and courage. Also the effects of a government that controls and deceives its populace, and the importance of standing up for the truth. All in all a very worthwhile book that I would be comfortable referring to anyone including my tween nieces and nephews. I got this book in a promotion and chose to review it.
Dragon Forged is young adult fantasy book and third in the Plague Born -series but can be read as a stand-alone just as I did.
The story has multiple POV's and at times it made the reading a bit difficult although I think that my lack of English skills were more to blame this time.
I found the storyline interesting and I was very intrigued by the world building. Dragon plague has swept through the land and most of the humans are either killed or turned into wyverns. There are four kinds of wyverns; red, yellow, blue and green and they differ from each other by the magic they posses. There are also dragons, elves, dwarfs and drakes, so the fantasy cast is all there.
Wylan Atwater is a red wyvern and her first circuit is nothing what she expects. What was supposed to be routine duty turns into a dangerous quest to find the enemy within her own people. It also reveals many hidden truths and the world will never be the same again.
The main character for mewas Leaghan, a wizard in learning. She plays an important role towards the end of the book and I surely would like to read more of her in the future.
This is a story of what happens to a society when you let fear take over and what happens to its people, when the powers to be dictate everything and hide the truth. And it's a story about finding courage and being true to oneself. And a story of friendship and love and acceptance. So, not only has this story multiple POV's, it also has many dimension.
