Overview

The dragonswarm is ended. Fifteen years after Daven Carrickson rebuilt legendary Palmagnes, the civilization of man is once again safe from reptilian menace. But the long years have taken their toll. The Dragonprince is ten years missing, mighty cities still lie in smoldering ruins, and the kingdom of the Sarianne is broken. Hoping to rebuild his old dominion, the jealous king now brings an army to the Tower's very gates. And whom should he find waiting but the Dragonprince's son?

Born in cataclysm and brought up in the sheltered comfort of Daven's stronghold, fourteen-year-old Taryn remembers little of his father and knows even less of the world. But Taryn knows what he is owed. He demands the king respect him as the Dragonprince's heir...and quickly learns how vulnerable his family is without Daven to protect them.

Dragged off with his mother as a hostage to the king, Taryn comes to understand that his pride imperils everything his parents sacrificed to build. To redeem their legacy, he must forge a new path for himself.

On his own, Taryn will learn that being a hero means enduring much hardship. He will learn that his heritage brings grave responsibilities. He will learn what it means to be his father’s son. But he has to do it fast, or he will lose his mother...forever.

The Dragonprince's Heir is the final book in the Dragonprince's Legacy. Approximately 100,000 words.

    Spoiler alert, this is not about the DragonPrince

    Interesting that this is the 3rd book in the series, yet according to the side panel it is the 6th. I guess I missed reading three books, or the actions of the Dragonprince documented in this volume, will be expanded in books 3, 4, and 5.

    This book is about the son of the dragonprince and takes his perspective on the world view based on a spoiled brat. Much loved, much protected, much naive and too much power equal quite an adventure of which a father will be proud.

    The Dragonprince's Heir is unexpected and strong. It breaks the narrative of the first two books, and it satisfies all along the way.

    Coming in, I expected to read about Daven fighting off the dragonswarm in his fortress after solidifying the base of his power in the previous book. In the very beginning of the book, it becomes evident that the dragonswarm is 10 years passed, and Daven is nowhere to be seen! Thus, discovering that the protagonist is Daven's son, Taryn, is very unexpected.

    Much more interestingly, though, Taryn is among the first protagonists that I have read who is both the primary protagonist and primarily a foil. Yes, the story is about his development and coming of age, much in the same way that the first two books were about Daven's development and coming of age (and with similar plot elements along the way), but that story is familiar enough to leave out details. In Taryn's role as the protagonist, we observe him as he travels the world and grows. However in Taryn's role as the foil, we observe the world that has grown over the years as Taryn travels.

    The book is not without some rough spots. The second book had Daven constantly growing his power and struggling with it, as well as with enemies. That was a fine premise for some epic conflicts. The Dragonprince's Heir abandons much of that power-based conflict for emotional conflict and worldbuilding, which leaves the book feeling a bit slow at times. The book also seems a little short, with a few too many loose ends for me to feel completely happy at the end of a trilogy. None of these points, however, detract from my enjoyment of the book.

    Overall, The Dragonprince's Heir is very different from the first two books in the series, but it is no worse for wear. If you read the second book, felt that it was the pinnacle of fantasy, and want a repeat, you will be disappointed. If you enjoyed Pogue's writing, the characters that he created, and the world of the FirstKing, you will find The Dragonprince's Heir to be a satisfactory conclusion.

    Great Adventure Story

    The Drangonprince's Heir is the last book in The Dragonprince Trilogy, and it is just as exciting as the previous two books. It is different than a lot of trilogies because it jumps to a new hero, Devon's son Taryn. It is a coming-of-age story
    about Taryn, as he grows from a petulant adolescent into a strong young man. Once he leaves the safety and shelter of his home, he finds the world in ruins due to a long and destructive war. There is much to think about in this story, and the
    twists and turns kept me reading straight thru. I highly recommend this trilogy, and I hope there are more stories
    coming about these characters.
