Title: Firebolt (#1)
Author: Adrienne Woods
Series: The Dragonian Series
Publisher: Fire Quill Publishing
Release Date: September 19, 2014
Dragons. Right. Teenage girls don’t believe in fairy tales, and sixteen-year-old Elena Watkins was no different.
Until the night a fairy tale killed her father.
Now Elena is in a new world, and a new school. The cutest guy around may be an evil dragon, a prince wants Elena’s heart, and a long dead sorcerer may be waking up to kill her. Oh and the only way Elena’s going to graduate is on the back of a dragon of her own.
Teenage girls don’t believe in fairy tales. Now it’s time for Elena to believe in…herself.
For the love of blueberries, Elena Watkins was destined for greatness, even though she didn’t know it. Forced to travel from home to home every three months Elena’s life was a never ending blur of new towns and new faces, that is, until the night her father was killed by a creature she thought only existed in fairy tales – a dragon. With her father’s death leaving her orphaned, Elena is whisked away to her true birthplace, Paegeia.
Arriving at Dragonia Academy, the premier school for young Dragonians, she begins to feel a sense of belonging in this strange world; a school she was never meant to attend because her father was a dragon. Elena is soon swept up in the rigor of her new life and the new set of skills she now needs to survive: Latin, Art of War, and Enchantments.
Entranced by her new reality Elena learns about the dragons and humans who inhabit her new home. There are two classes of dragons that soar through Paegeia distinguished by their instinctual pretense for either good or darkness. The distinction between these two very different species is vital to Elena’s success in her new world because she has been marked as a Dragonian, a human preordained to ride and tame a dragon of her very own.
With the help of her new friends, Elena is able to navigate the complexities of her new home. Her new roommates Becky and Sammy are even more amazing then she could have ever imaged and to top it all off, Sammy was a dragon. Sammy’s is also the devoted sister of Blake, the most attractive boy at school and the Rubicon; the only dragon of his kind with the abilities of all the dragon species with a pretense for evil. Elena soon finds the love she always wanted with Lucian, the Prince of Tith, who actively pursues Elena throughout her time at Dragonia Academy, winning her heart with his absolute adoration and unshaken dedication.
Unbeknownst to Elena danger is lurking behind the enchanted vines concealing the once thriving capital of Paegeia – Etan. Goran, the darkest sorcerer to ever practice his evil arts in the realm, has lain dormant for over a century behind the crumbling city. The first step in his menacing plan is to destroy the only weapon that can kill him – the King of Lion Sword.
When the sword is stolen Elena doesn’t think twice about seeking it; knowing deep down that it is her destiny to save her new home. She travels to the Sacred Cavern, and discovers the nefarious actions of an unknown man lead to the swords destruction as she follows the trail revealed in the prophetic waters of the cavern.
Elena and her friends engage the mysterious man revealing their existence to Goran and fighting for their very lives.
Meet my Main Character. The girl whose mind we are constantly trapped in. She isn’t your everyday Heroin and she has so many flaws that she annoys most, but she is growing through out the entire series into a true Paegeian.
I’ve had the pleasure of meeting another character, a beautiful girl named Elena. This is what she had to say.
Me: Elena, welcome, tell us a bit about yourself.
EW: (She looks at the carpet, a bit nervous.) What can I say, I’m 16, have moved around more times in my life that I can count on my fingers and toes, and as much as dragons frighten me, I sort of dig them.
(We both give nervous laughs.)
Me: I know exactly what you mean. How did you land in the world with all its dragons and riders?
EW: (Her eyes start to tear up, but she sniffs, and wipes a strand of blonde hair from her face.)My dad used to tell me stories about them when I was little. For some reason I can’t remember all the details, but I do remember that it was a special world hidden from the human realm where dragons and magic are real, like you are in front of me. We used to run away every three months. I never knew from what until that night. (She looks at the carpet) It wasn’t an easy life, and as much as I hated every single time we fled, I would gladly do it again if it meant having my dad back.
(My throat tightens up.) Me: You mean that your dad is no longer with us anymore?
EW: (She shakes her head.) He died the night five dragons attacked us on Interstate 40.
(I fell emotional with her, even though I never met her father.) Me: Is that how you ended up in Paegeia?
EW: (She nods). I didn’t know the ins and outs of how I got to the infirmary in Dragonia Academy, only that a guy, or should I say a dragon, named Matt rescued me and took me to Paegeia because of my dark mark.
Me: So you have the mark of the riders too?
EW. Yeah, it’s not so great knowing that soon you’ll have to fight a dragon that is twenty times your size, but how can I share my fear with my two best friends? One is part of a dent, something that is way out of this world. I mean her dragon, George, used to hate her, but after she claimed him, he started to hang on to every word that crossed her lips as if it was the last thing she would ever say. The dent thing is still a bit confusing, but they say it’s rare, and a bond like that can never be broken. My other friend, Sammy, is a Fire – Tail. A dragon that can incinerate your butt on the spot. I don’t think she would do it though.
(I give her a small smile.) Me: So you don’t want to be a dragon rider?
EW: Would you like to claim something that can breathe fire, or acid. Not to mention flying on one. I did it once, not so cool. I thought I was going to die.
Me: You flew on a dragon?
EW: Yes, it was a dumb thing to do, and I will never do it again. I will die if my friends find out that I’m afraid of heights.
(I give a small laugh.) Me: I’m so sorry. I didn’t mean to laugh.
(She laughs too.) EW: You understand now why I don’t want to be a Dragonian. (She sighs.) I’ve got no choice though. My mark is very dark. They’ve say they never seen one this dark, although plenty of the board members of Dragonia Academy think I don’t belong inside their school because of what my father was; a dragon. I’m the first offspring of a dragon that’s been born with the dragon rider’s mark.
(My face grows in terror.) Me: Your father was a dragon? ( I look at my charts. They should’ve told me that she was a dragon.) Are you a dragon?
EW: (She giggles) No, although my father’s one, a human and dragon offspring doesn’t have a dragon form. I’m human. As far as my father being a dragon, I guess I should’ve seen that one, but I never did. He was really good hiding it. He was one of the Metallic Dragons, the good type, and they say that the Metallics can go years without their dragon form. So I guess that’s what Dad did.
Me: Okay, let’s move over to the lighter side. Do you have a special someone?
EW: (She gives me that smile, the one you give whenever you think about your special someone.) Yes, but he’s royalty and I’m just a commoner. I’m sure they used to hang people like me in the old days.
Me: Is his name Lucian?
EW: Have you met him? (She seems to be a totally different person. Her face lights up and her smile would go all the way around her head, if it wasn’t for her ears.)
Me: I had the pleasure. He is a true gentleman.
EW: He is.
Well, Elena. I guess that was it. I would love to chat more with you and how you feel about everything but our time is up. So I guess I just have to find out more about you in Firebolt. Thank you so much for joining me today and I wish you all the luck with riding on dragons.
EW: Me riding on dragons that will never happen again, but thanks for having me here. It was nice talking to someone normal.
We both laugh and she gets up, gives me a wave as she exits and vanishes.
Okay guys that’s it. I’m sure it won’t be the last of the Dragonian Series. You can purchase all the novels from 1-3 on Amazon, Firebolt, Thunderlight and Frostbite, and there is a 1.5 novelette that goes with it, called Venom. It should be read between Firebolt and Thunderlight as it was scenes from Thunderlight me and my Editor, Hillery, decided to edit and create Venom so it would not go to waist.
Thank you all.
