Overview

Tale #1 in the Dragon Rider Trilogy

Roark of Nedres spent his life absorbing lore, legend, and rumor to claim his dragon beast in order to save his people. Nothing has prepared him for the ultimate bond fate will demand.

Princess Nira Meriel Estar was born with the power of prophecy. Her most recent vision forecasts a dire fate for her people, promises few answers, and will deliver the country of Fyrhall a victorious future or crushing defeat.

Kraz, an ancient dragon of mythical power and knowledge, has eluded capture for a thousand years. However, only a dragon of great wisdom would consider an eternal bond to his warrior rider to save his dragon race.

Three souls. Two hearts. One courageous calling.

    A Fabulous Story

    Roark is a dragon rider on a mission to find his dragon. The years he spends on his quest hone him into a man of honor and duty who is very aware of his station in life. He exists to protect and serve; not daring to dream fate would offer him anything more.

    Nira is a princess who is being trained by her father the king, to one day rule their land. Unfortunately there are gaps in her education that only a lover can fill. She is born with a singular, unmanageable gift that will either help her people survive the threat of war, or force them to succumb to it.

    Kraz is the ancient dragon who enables both of them to reach their full potential.

    This story is a classic tale of two people finding love where they least expect it. The author deftly suspends disbelief with characters that are skillfully drawn of both light and dark, with human failings we all understand. Set against the backdrop of war and magic, this is a wonderful tale of love and adventure. The thing that moves this story from ordinary to extraordinary is the relationship between Kraz, his rider, and the future queen. I couldn’t stop turning pages because I had to know what would happen next.

    I truly hope there will be more installments in the Portals of Destiny Tales. In my opinion, KH LeMoyne has crafted another must read story. If you’re a fan of fantasy romance, add this to the top of your TBR list.

    Dragons, riders, and a little romance over 700 pgs on Nook

    A bit hard to understand at times. The book centers more around the search for the dragon, the finding of the dragon, and the prep for battle to come. Lots of elven magic too! There were two small references to a romance blooming with the exeption of the ending, which was good. I think this would be a good book for guys as well since its more about war than romance.

    What¿s not to like?

    Nice introduction to world building with dragons, good fight scene, magic that is fun and new, and the romance is woven in well and not contrived! Look forward to more in this trilogy.

    I read my first dragon rider book in middle school many, many ye

    I read my first dragon rider book in middle school many, many years ago when I read the Dragons of Pern series. I would love to be a dragon rider. The popularity of the movie and book of Eragon have brought dragon rider books into the mainstream, something those of us who already loved them are thrilled about.
    This story is enthralling. I love the world created and the manner in which the dragon and rider bond is forged. This is one I hadn’t heard before and love. Add a psychic Princess to the mix and you have a definitely good read. There is so much I want to say about the books, the storyline, and the magnificent world created, but I don’t want to give anything away as this story is that good.
    What I can say is that the story is a romance, adventure, fantasy, magical, coming of age, foretelling, warrior, battle fighting, epic story. I give it 5 out of 5 clouds.

    (I was given this book for free on a read-to-review basis as part of the ‘Dragon Rider’s Gift blog tour.)
    Roark of Nedres is trying to fulfil a legacy. His grandfather pledged his life to his kingdom, and now so will Roark. Freeing a dragon from a mage’s imprisonment, he travels to Fyrhall to join the dragon cavalry, and serve his kingdom.

    What he hadn’t anticipated was a dragon with rich tastes, and a beautiful princess who captures his attention the moment he lays eyes on her.

    Nira (the princess) has the gift of prophecy, and paints pictures of the future. She has been painting a mural of a great war, and it is up to Roark and the other dragon riders to defeat the enemy, and save the kingdom.


    This book wasn’t what I expected. From the blurb I was expecting a paranormal romance, but instead I would say that this book is more a fantasy novel. There is one ‘love’ scene, (making this an adult book and not suitable for those under the age of 18), but otherwise the story is about dragons, battles, prophecies, and politics.

    I have to admit that I struggled to keep up with the goings on in this book. There was a lot of talk about battles and maps that I just didn’t appreciate, although the romance section when it actually happened was good!

    Overall, I’d suggest that this will appeal more to readers of fantasy than paranormal romance.
    5 out of 10.
