 Every child of Woolpren dreams of becoming one, but only a few are chosen. Now, ten-year-old twin brother and sister, Ruskya and Duskya, have been selected to join an elite group of riders: dragon riders. Full of awe and excitement, the twins leave their mother, and their home, to train for their new lives.

Fifteen years later, dragons are becoming extinct and riders are rare. One day, Ruskya is at the general store in town when a man announces that he is recruiting new dragon riders. Ruskya goes undercover, and discovers that there is another colony of riders with their own agenda—a quest to find a mysterious plant that could restore the dragon population, or destroy it. When a battle erupts between the two colonies, it’s up to Ruskya and his friends to fight for their dragons’ future, and their lives.

Follow Ruskya’s quest as he finds courage and friendship in this exciting middle grade fantasy series by new author Kandi J Wyatt.

Dragon's Future by Kandi J. Wyatt

Dragon's FutureHave you ever dreamed of being able to ride a dragon? In the land where dragons are real and choose their rider for a lifetime bond, a brother and sister will discover a new life, new bonds and a life of honor. Ruskya and Duskya are twins and as ten-year-olds, they have been chosen by dragons to train to be part of an elite force of riders.

As they grow with their dragons, things are changing, dark times are coming. The dragons are becoming extinct, there are no new hatchlings and Ruskya is determined to find out why. Does it have anything to do with another group of riders from another land who appear dark and threatening? It is said there are magical plants with the power to save or destroy the dragons and they must be found before it is too late. What other discoveries will they make along the way and how does it relate to the twins?

Kandi J. Wyatt has created a middle-grade fantasy adventure filled with magic, heroes and wondrous dragons. Ms. Wyatt opens the door to reading, imagination and places her readers in the moment of each scene. So many mysteries are woven into the fabric of this tale, some heartbreaking, some enlightening and some perhaps still not answered. With characters of honor, filled with patience and kindness, as well as evil doers, there is no doubt that each child will be able to make a choice in their mind of which side to cheer for. Breathtaking action, descriptions that will make one feel the joy of flying on these majestic beasts while actually feeling their scales come alive under Kandi J. Wyatt’s pen. (And not to ruin the secret, there are subtle lessons along the way, but don't tell the kids!)

Give a child the gift of reading, the magic of other worlds and heroes that are larger than life while not being perfect. Highly recommended as a family discussion book afterwards, so go ahead, you know you want to read it and feel the magic yourself! Just remember, those flames are NOT for toasting marshmallows!

I received this copy from Kandi J. Wyatt in exchange for my honest review.
