Aram Raythe has the power to challenge the gods. He just doesn't know it yet.
Aram thinks he's nothing but a misfit from a small fishing village in a dark corner of the world. As far as Aram knows, he has nothing, with hardly a possession to his name other than a desire to make friends and be accepted by those around him, which is something he's never known. But Aram is more.
Much, much more.
Unknown to him, Aram bears within him a gift so old and rare that many people would kill him for it, and there are others who would twist him to use for their own sinister purposes. These magics are so potent that Aram earns a place at an academy for warrior mages training to earn for themselves the greatest place of honor among the armies of men: dragon riders.
Aram will have to fight for respect by becoming not just a dragon rider, but a Champion, the caliber of mage that hasn't existed in the world for hundreds of years. And the land needs a Champion. Because when a dark god out of ancient myth arises to threaten the world of magic, it is Aram the world will turn to in its hour of need.
I enjoyed the joy ride of an adventure getting to know Marcus and Aram. Aram is a young boy obsessed with knots and is determined to stay on the path to work on boats; little does he know the power brewing inside him. Marcus is the supportive friend everyone wished they had. The relationship between the characters and dragons is a heart-tugging experience. The description about the places the boys came from and where they go in their journey as they come into what they are destined to become is a joy to listen to. Ben farrow is an exceptional narrator that made this long book a joy to listen to, and I could get lost in the story. Fantasy books hold a special place in my heart cause they can take you on a journey to places that only exist in your imagination. Dragon mage is that kind of epic story that blends world-building with exceptional character development. The audiobook is available in July.
