Reviewed by Lit Amri for Readers' Favorite

Emallya Lorant, survivor of a devastating war between good and evil, is a Spirit mage - most importantly a rider who lost her beloved dragon, as well as a chosen guardian of the dragon eggs. As five hundred years passed, she embarked in a quest to find and gather new dragon riders, who had been called by their respected unborn dragons to come to them. As she gathered them, they faced great difficulties from a world that no longer welcomes magic and considers dragons as evil. But their greatest threat comes from old, dark enemies, the worst of them all - the Shadow dragons and their riders.

I love stories that involve dragons whether in books, films or animations, and "Embers of Galdrilene" didn’t disappoint me. Every character, especially the young dragon riders, was introduced appropriately with no rush, allowing me to get to know them thoroughly. The characters were absolutely well-created, unique and believable, with his or her own background story. The young, budding romance between the young embers is also sweet. The ending promises more excitement to come in this series. I can’t wait to read more about the dragon riders as they grow with their dragons in Galdrilene. This is a great book with classic fantasy fiction of dragons and magicians brilliantly written by A.D. Trosper. Somehow she displays great skill as a writer that is worth teaching to the other fantasy writers, especially new ones, on how to write the perfect dragon and magician-themed fantasy story.
