The Royal Dragoneers

After struggling for more than two centuries to tame the inhospitable islands where they washed up, the descendants of the survivors of a lost passenger ship are now striving to tame a more substantial "Mainland" they have found.

For as long as mankind has been stranded, dragons have been their sworn enemies.

But no longer...

Sixteen year-old Jenka De Swasso wants nothing more than to follow in his father's footsteps and become a King's Ranger. But when he one day finds himself surrounded by vicious trolls, a young pure-blood dragon comes to his rescue and they become bond-mates.

Meanwhile, the goblins have a new king, Gravelbone, and have allied themselves with the tainted "mudged" dragons to drive mankind out of its lands. Setting his sights on a vast manmade wall, Gravelbone and his wicked hell-born Nightshade, seek to poison the entire human kingdom and enslave any survivors.

Jenka and his companion, a druida warrior named Zah, soon realize that they and their bonded dragons are mankind's only hope for survival. Forced to defy their arrogant king's wishes, the pair set out on a desperate quest to stop Gravelbone's forces and save mankind from its terrifying fate.

With action so intense you'll forget to breathe and intrigue around every corner, The Royal Dragoneers is one adventure you cannot miss.

Hold on to your dragon... your journey is about to begin!



“A very fast moving book - I highly recommend it. This is a mythic world fantasy, with great battle scenes and strong characters. I'm planning on reading more by this author. ”

Loved the book. Fast paced from start to finish.

“This book is a great, action packed adventure. It starts off fast with Jenka and his first dragon encounter and then flies right into the main plot. The world is believable and fascinating. The creatures are the usual suspects, but with a unique twist on their behavior and personalities. The main bad-dude is a serious menace and does not act in a predictable manner, which kept the story interesting. The magic system is interesting and very different from the usual 'D&D' trope. I love the dragons and the distinction between the intelligent and the 'mudged.' Definitely a value for its length and deserving of 5 stars. ”

“I do not know where to start in reviewing this book. First word that comes to mind is simply, 'AWESOME'. Mr. Mathias pulled me into the story rather quickly and kept me going throughout the book. I read a lot! Not just fantasy/fiction and found this book to be well written and easy to lose track of time while reading. I definitely did not want to put it down. I will have to say that as soon as I was finished with this book I was downloading the next book onto my kindle. The only thing I did not like about the whole saga was that it had to end. I felt like the characters were friends. Their enemies were mine. I found myself going through all of the emotions that you could possible go through while reading a book. If you are looking for a good book to read that will grab you and keep you wanting to go into battle and win, then I suggest you pick this book up and settle down for a mind grabbing story.”
