Publisher's Summary

After struggling for more than two centuries to tame the inhospitable islands where they washed up, the descendants of the survivors of a lost passenger ship are now striving to tame a more substantial "Mainland" they have found.
For as long as mankind has been stranded, dragons have been their sworn enemies.
But no longer...
Sixteen year-old Jenka De Swasso wants nothing more than to follow in his father's footsteps and become a King's Ranger. But when he one day finds himself surrounded by vicious trolls, a young pure-blood dragon comes to his rescue and they become bond-mates.
Meanwhile, the goblins have a new king, Gravelbone, and have allied themselves with the tainted "mudged" dragons to drive mankind out of its lands. Setting his sights on a vast manmade wall, Gravelbone and his wicked hell-born Nightshade, seek to poison the entire human kingdom and enslave any survivors.
Jenka and his companion, a druida warrior named Zah, soon realize that they and their bonded dragons are mankind's only hope for survival. Forced to defy their arrogant king's wishes, the pair set out on a desperate quest to stop Gravelbone's forces and save mankind from its terrifying fate.
With action so intense you'll forget to breathe and intrigue around every corner, The Royal Dragoneers is one adventure you cannot miss.
Hold on to your dragon... your journey is about to begin!

The story was great

The story was an outstanding read. The narrator has a good voice but used pauses and inflections that were irritating. We managed to ignore the voice inflections and pauses and just listened to the words

A well written, and well told action-fantasy.

What made the experience of listening to The Royal Dragoneers the most enjoyable?

The story was great. A village boy and some others turn into dragon riders to save a land from a troll who is trying to poison them.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Royal Dragoneers?

When the young dragon Jade gets chastised and then takes off on his own. I was scared for that juvenile wyrm, more than I'd like to admit.

Have you listened to any of Christine Padovan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I heard her read Mathias' Crimson and Clover on youtube.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely. Each chapter ends in a way that compels you to keep going.

Any additional comments?

This is the second M. R. Mathias audio book I have listened to. In both the narrators use voices for the characters. This is okay but distracting at times. It also lends to the drama and anticipation at times too. Mathias' stories are somehow traditional fantasy yet told in a very refreshing way. I hope all four of his fantasy series make it to audio format.
