Norterridane, a canine race of Genorrdia, have protected dragons for generations. But the dragon young are in danger. The Schorl serpents have found Genorrdia and threaten the lives of the dragons and their keepers.

Crimson wants nothing more than to be a dragon keeper and follow in her father’s footsteps. When she stumbles upon two rare Obsidian dragon eggs and claims them as her own, she is thrown into a life she is not ready for. With little knowledge or experience about dragon keeping, Crimson sets off on a journey to protect the hatchlings.

Crimson must learn to harness the powers of her dragons or lose everyone she loves.

Reviewed by Caitlin Lyle Farley for Readers' Favorite The Norterridane, a race of small canines, have raised dragons for as long as anyone can remember. Crimson’s father expects her to be a dragon keeper, just like he is. Her trainer thinks she’s too young and, although Crimson likes the idea of being a dragon keeper, she secretly doubts she’s suited to the job. One night she discovers a clutch of Obsidian dragon eggs and bonds with the hatchlings by accident. Wholly unprepared for the task of raising one dragon, never mind two, Crimson and her new wards are sent to the closest dragon keeper so that she may learn how to train the two hatchlings and keep them safe. It’s a dangerous time to be a dragon keeper on Genorrdia. Vicious serpents, enemies of the dragons, have been spotted and the bones of young dragons found. Crimson will have to master the dragon’s power to protect her two dragons from this formidable threat. I got a thrill when I read the blurb for Crimson and simply had to read this story. Tai Manivong has created a rich and unique world in The Dragon Keeper Chronicles. The Norterridane are a distinctive race and their bond with the dragons felt natural. Crimson struggles with her responsibilities of raising and protecting the dragons. She’s essentially their adoptive parent and muddles through the transition period from when she first finds the eggs to when she becomes more capable in a manner that’s wholly relatable. The serpents are ominous creatures and I found it interesting that Tai Manivong allowed for some ambiguity on the matter of which side is the ‘right’ side. The exclusion of an adult dragon’s knowledge of the reasons for the war with the serpents leaves all explanations coming from the serpent’s view of the matter.
