Publisher's Summary

Ayden Dracre, the youngest son in a family of notorious sorcerers, has always respected dragons. That might change when he learns the history of the Sjau. Unfortunately, he is about to face an adversary not even the dragons can destroy, and this time, there is more than Ayden's life at risk.
When the future of Caldaca is on the line, the Sjau will have to set aside their differences to save magic. Merlin's powers of divination continue to grow, but will it be enough to defeat his greatest enemy yet? With the black star impending, Ayden must master dragon magic, save a dragon egg, and rally allies before time runs out.

An Absolute Delight!

Although The Dragon's Price was the 4th book in the series, it was the first that I had read. The story starts with a brief introduction, so the reader gets an idea about who the characters are and a bit of back story on their world. Ayden Dracre is a 7th son of a 7th son and his mentor is Merlin! These two main characters have a close and comfortable relationship that is fun to follow. I am looking forward to going back and reading books 1-3 to see how their friendship developed and read about their previous adventures.

It is wonderful to find a book (and series) that can be recommended to ages from pre-teen to adults. The writing is not complex, but nor is it juvenile. The story was engaging right from the beginning, and was hard to put down. The characters were well developed and likeable, but not Mary Sues. I found them to be very human, especially Ayden. While Ayden is a teenager, there wasn't any of the teenage angst (so refreshing!), that is seen in many other coming of age series. He is also an excellent role model for kids because he sincerely cares about people and animals. Ayden has a job to do, but he still considers the bigger picture and how his actions (or inaction) will affect others. Merlin is also enjoyable in his role as mentor. Rain Oxford has written him as wise and caring, but not pompous thankfully.

I believe there is a 5th book in the works for this series, but there is no cliffhanger in Dragon's Price and everything is wrapped up, so the reader is not left hanging (thank you Rain!).

Narration: J. Scott Bennett's narration was excellent! He pulled me into the story immediately. He has great pacing and gives each character a distinctive and suitable voice. I will be looking for more books narrated by him.

Fun fact: Both the author and the narrator are teachers. J. Scott Bennet reads to his grade 6 classes. Imagine how amazing it would be to encounter such a teacher in grade school!

And for those who like to know...
Here be dragons, but not sex, foul language, graphic violence or gore.

School librarians please obtain this series for your schools, the kids will love it:).
I'm off to buy the first book on audible, and hard copies of the series for my Mum (a retired elementary school librarian).

I received this free copy of Dragon's Price in exchange for an unbiased review.

Great 4th book in Series!!!

If you could sum up The Dragon's Price in three words, what would they be?

Delightful, entertaining read.


What did you like best about this story?

How people were able to forgive and forget past hurts without letting it interfear with the present tasks.


Which character – as performed by J. Scott Bennett – was your favorite?

Ayden - he was sometimes very long winded about things and needed to be reminded to stay on track. I feel like that at times.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I reallly liked the ending where Ayden works to relieve Merlin of his curse only to find out what the "price" for it was. Will be interesting to see if there is another book whether they swap situations or not.


Any additional comments?

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
