Taming Fire - Aaron Pogue
Taming Fire is the first novel in the Dragonprince's Legacy series. This book is free for the kindle. This is a great story with wizards, dragons, treachery, battles, and even a beautiful girl. Daven Carrickson is seventeen years old. He's an orphan and a simple shepherd. Daven enjoys practicing with his sword in the evenings, and he's encouraged other boys from the village to join in. Daven even has a simple magic he uses to keep them all safe and score their matches, but Daven isn't a wizard. That all changes when one of the king's guard shows up for Daven, and challenges him to a match. It doesn't go well for either contestant. Then a wizard shows up to take Daven away from his simple existence, off to the Academy of Wizardry. Daven's life is about to change. It's not clear if it's for the better or worse. Especially when there are dragons. This is a great story. The characters and predicaments are interesting, and the danger and suspense keep you from putting the book down. Very highly recommended.
