Sairalindë is a dragon rider, she is also a powerful mage. Strong and beautiful she’s a wonderful character to behold she is betrothed to our protagonist Flintathriël (and seriously, how does Errin come up with these names they are fabulous?). Flintathriël is a Nuvien fighter and heir to the Elven thrown, he has hair as white as ash and is nicknamed whitey because of it. He is quite a joker and I found myself laughing at much of his antics. He doesn’t take life to seriously but he is a strong fighter and understands the threats facing his people.
Flintathriël’s sister Faëlwyn is also a fighter, in love with their commander Theron she is willful and wants to be at the centre of the action. She is more serious than her brother and more open with her feelings.
This happy family of elves are threatened by Mnuvae, she considers herself the rightful heir to the throne, she will do whatever it takes including total destruction to take it. I will be honest there were moments I felt complete sadness and affinity for Mnuvae, I felt like she deserved the throne, that she had been hard done by and that even Flintathriël was quite mean towards her.
This book has everything, there are some beautifully romantic scenes but much of this book is a full on battle and it’s quite heart breaking to see what these characters go through in such a short time. Seeing where Flintathriël starts and where he ends was devastating and I desperately wanted to rewind and see something change.
This is just the first book in this series and I absolutely cannot wait to see what Errin Krystal produces next because this was high fantasy at it’s absolute best, completely riveting with characters that attach themselves to you and won’t let go.
Sending a huge thanks to Errin Krystal and R&R Book Tours for the eARC so that I could read and honestly review this novel.
The author’s writing was incredible. I was blown away at how quickly I was able to understand the character’s motivations. From the start, I could feel the passion between Flintathriël and Sairalindë. I enjoyed learning about their history and that their emotional connection was already solidified. It gave the story a nice romance element (and some sexy times) and left plenty of room for the other good stuff.
I absolutely consider magic mages, dragons, and warriors to be the other good stuff, this story even threw in a little necromancy for added conflict. Nice! There was fast-paced action with wonderfully written battle scenes, this story just flowed. The scenes were vivid and put me on the edge of my seat hoping that everything would work out. I easily became engrossed in this story with its battles, use of magic, dragons and villains. Before I even knew it, the story was coming to an end.
Such great characters, even the supporting characters are treated with care and rounded out. I especially enjoyed that the elves have their own language that is used throughout this story. No worries though, there is a glossary with the terms included with the book. By the conclusion of this story I was heart-broken but at the same time hopeful. I am dying to know what will happen next. The ballad of The Last Dragon Rider may have come to an end but story is not finished. It only marked the beginning of Flintathriël’s journey. Such a good read and I highly recommend this story to fans of fantasy!
This review is based on a complimentary book I received from Author, Errin Krystal. It is an honest and voluntary review. The complimentary receipt of it in no way affected my review or rating.
I’m filing it under New Adult on our book blog--Dragon Authors Book Wyrms--for its racy content. It is best paired with a pinot noir, for those who partake, or a box of chocolates, for those who do not. Or perhaps a hot bath by candlelight. Your favorite pajamas and a faux-fur blanket, at the very least. It is a decadent read, and the experience should be equally so.
I love the story, the world, the characters. All of them. But I’m so madly in love with a couple of the supporting characters (don’t worry, no spoilers) that I have a hard time getting past them to talk about anything else. Is it bad to hope for a spin-off series before this first book even gets published? (I’ll answer my own question: No, it isn’t. Authors and publishers love that kind of dedication. And I’ll read every one of this author’s books.)
I read a very early draft of The Last Dragon Rider and was thrilled (although not at all surprised) to see how quickly it found a publishing home. I’ve been waiting months for the final version to come out, so I could buy it for my own collection. At long last, it's here!
If you enjoy elves, dragons, magic, and adventure with a luxurious dose of passion, do not miss this book!
