If you enjoy stories filled with magic, mystical characters, and supernatural new worlds, then Elizabeth J. M. Walker’s book about a teen-age dragon mage looking for acceptance may be just up your alley. I found this story filled with enchanting characters and had a bewitching take on books written about schools for witches, wizards, mages, and things that go bump in the night.
So what’s my take on a story that’s all about trying to win a Royal Tourney to become the successor to the throne using magical powers and prowess? This is what I posted on Amazon and Goodreads…
4 Star Sorcery! Elizabeth J. M. Walker works her magic from the very first chapter!
She Dreamed of Dragons is reminiscent of JK Rowling’s Harry Potter series with a dash of JRR Tolkien thrown in the mix. Walker doesn’t just create another young adult witches and wizards at school tale, rather she spins an entire tapestry of the world of Dorlith, and their dire need for a successor to the throne.
Trina, a fiery dragon mage, is chosen from her mage school to attend, and hopefully win, the Royal Tourney. What she doesn’t realize is that she must face many obstacles and challenges, including trying to get witches and wizards to accept mages back into their society. A fun, fantastical read that will have you cheering for the underdog again and again.
About the Book:
Trina is a fifteen-year-old dragon mage in a kingdom ruled by witches and wizards – the same people who have brought dragons and other magical creatures near extinction. Trina can barely control her fire powers and is desperate for an apprenticeship, but finding a fellow dragon mage to be her teacher is proving more difficult than coming across an actual dragon.
Then there’s the Royal Tourney – a competition presented by the Queen to find a successor to the throne. Trina heads to the competition in the hopes of sparking some interest in the mage society and earning herself an apprenticeship.
She never intended to be a frontrunner in the competition.
She never meant to catch the attention of the evil witch trying to take over the throne.
She never expected to fall for a wizard.
Now Trina must face tough decisions about who she is and who she could become. Trina must ask herself: Can she really win the Royal Tourney?
