Best of the bunch so far. Should have PG13 warning, but there is nothin here that isn't on ABC, CBS, or NBC every evening.

"Rise of the Dragon King" is the fifth book in the Dragoneer saga, and it's an exciting read that carries on the stories of characters who are already beloved as well as old and new villains. The story opens with King Richard stranded on Serpent Isle, alone and not in full possession of his sanity; his consciousness drifts between his lonely present and his boyhood bond with a dragon named Royal. When Richard is rescued to marry a princess and thus unite the Old World and the New World, the Princess's father has more in mind; he wants a dragon and power. Meanwhile, Jenka, Zahrellion, Clover, and the characters from the other books are struggling against the threat of power-hungry mages… This isn't a good book to start with in the series, honestly--it jumps right into the action, and there's not much backstory provided in regard to what happened to the characters in the past. I'd recommend reading a few of the others in the series first, because once you have "Rise of the Dragon King" is really a fast-paced and satisfying fantasy read (with a bonus short story at the end). The characters' intelligent bonds with their dragons is interesting and well-done, and Jenka's plot arc as he struggles to overcome the trauma of his past gives some emotional drama to the story. With a little bit of romance and a lot of action and fantasy, "Rise of the Dragon King" is an entertaining installment in this series.

The fifth book of the Dragoneer saga series gives another adventure filled story to its readers. King Richard, who was thrown in a far away island, was liberated by King Chad and his men, in their love of taking over the new world. The new world is ruled by Jenka, with his fellow dragoneers. Things seems calm in the new world on the outside. But, the relationships start failing and there are new storms brewing, bigger and more terrible than before. Meanwhile, King Richard becomes even more cruel and plot to overthrow Jenka for no good reason. Jenka and his mates, with their dragons, face both physical and emotional challenges that they must overcome. The writing was good, as always. And the action and adventure fills the air. Love, friendship and loyalty are tested. The characters are well developed as well and the villains are portrayed more tougher. In spite of all this, I had two major problems with this book. First, Rikky's love on a married woman! For some reason, I feel that this book doesn't need these extras. It makes their long friendship a complete mess. Second, the book doesn't end here. Although I can accept cliffhangers, I cant accept to be continued endings. That is unacceptable in a book for me. Atleast major story should have brought to an end. Or at least there must be a mention in the heading that its been split into parts. I am the one who gave 5 stars for the previous book in this series. But, this book is a no-no for me, mainly because of the above two reasons.

King Richard has been banished for the last eight years, when visitors inform him of King Chad’s desire for him to marry one of his daughters. Richard jumps at the opportunity. He uses his new position to get close to King Chad, and gains another dragon on his quest to destroy the Dragoneers. Meanwhile, the Dragoneers have other problems with a powerful wizard poisoning the city’s water supply. This was non-stop action from beginning to the end. I like that the dragons had such varied personalities and could voice their opinions. At times the battle would get so intense that I wasn’t sure the good guys would come out on top, or even survive. I love that about Mathias’ books. He makes you get caught up in the heat of the battle and you are so invested in the characters that you actually fear for them. It makes me sad that this was the ending to the saga, but I feel the author did give it a great ending.

I really and truly don't think the author understands what is age appropriate for young boys who will likely be reading this book. Yes, they are interested in sex, as they are starting to grow into men, but I would never allow my child to read this. While a man and woman can and will have sex, it is something that is only for adults, not young children. You can have a scene between characters that have nothing to do with sex and still show that these two people love each other very much. On top of this, why, why do we keep making characters be beaten nearly to death only to have a magical mcguffin to come in at the last minute and save them? This should not happen! If the character can't save themselves from the situation you created, then don't put them in it! I can't recommend this author to anyone, let alone a child.
