As far as Dragon story's go this one is worth the read. The story was great, slow in some parts for my taste, (though) I do prefer thrillers myself. I really enjoyed the narrator he did an excellent job switching from character to character. There was some occasionally language (if that bothers you) but was approatedly used. As far as the author goes I enjoyed his style especially his use of the phrase (my love). All in all the book was definately worth the read.

Hallowell writes a great book here. It's got everything you could possibly want in it: dragons, riders, combat, and even a little magic thrown in for luck.
The story can actually be broken up into several different themes. The first theme is that of a common solider with exceptional leadership skills. And how those skills alienate him from both his common brethren and the nobles who look down on him. A part of both but separated from all. This can be related to many a story or military tale. Another theme is the one of companionship and loyalty. We get this theme through Delno's relationship with the men he led (Which we get to meet though out the land and tale) as well as his relationship with his partnered Dragon. And then we have the political theme where Delno is again forced into a leadership role to stop other Riders from taking over the kingdom.
This is really my only fault with this book. Delno, with a newly hatched dragon and new to the saddle, is pretty much given the rule of the Riders. Even though there are several elder riders with century's of experience over him, all but the main villain seem ready to hand over the reigns to him. It just came off as too easy.
But other than that flaw, the story is fantastic and multi-layered. I'd highly recommend this book and look forward to others.
Gill does a great job as well.

I only have one question, why didn't I find this audio book / author before now. This was a great book and grabbed me from the first chapter and didn't let go until the very last page. It had everything I ever want in a great book magic, action, Warriors and of course dragons. It kind of reminded me of Christopher paolini and I loved his series. The narrator just seamed to be perfect for this audio book if you want a great listen then give this a go. I'm off to start book 2.
