M.R. Mathias imagines a setting that will entice readers and lead them, along with his characters, on a breathtaking adventure. -- Readers Favorite Book Awards review of M. R. Mathias's 2017 Award Winning novel "A Gossamer Lens" from The Legend of Vanx Malic series
M.R. Mathias is a master at world building and is so good with creative descriptions that you can almost feel the wind whipping through your hair as you soar along on the back of a dragon. -- Readers Favorite Awards review of M. R. Mathias's 2015 "Gold Medal" Award Winning novel "Blood and Royalty" from The Dragoneer Saga"
"There are few writers in the genre of fantasy that can equal the creative mind of M.R. Mathias - now acknowledged as a master in this genre of dragons and dwarves, and magic, and spells, and all aspects of fantasy."-- Top 100, Hall of Fame, Vine Voice, Book Reviewer, Grady Harp
The action is fast and furious, and the novel has the author's trademark twists on the traditional storyline and keeps one guessing where it will go. The Royal Dragoneers starts a YA-ish series of adventure, discovery and magic, written in the exuberant style of the author which is familiar from The Sword and the Dragon. It is a fun book that I heartily recommend if you want such and on par with anything from that space
-- Fantasy Book Critic
Mathias has created a great cast of characters... My favorite was Zah. She is a strong female, and she can kick some major butt. The other characters I loved were the dragons...seriously kept me on the edge of the seat.
--Michelle Goodreads Review
An exciting step into a mythic world of awe-inspiring escapade, wild battles, exciting characters. Action is fast paced, satisfying in quantity and moves the reader at a brisk pace from page to page at a breathless tempo
--MJ Hollingshead Book Review
Mathias is a master at characterization. The dragons are magnificent in the story. I also enjoyed the characters of Zah and Jenka. The plot is intricately woven with twists and turns that will keep the reader guessing. The story has a mythical quality. Fans of fantasy will not want to miss this one.
