Aidan's biggest wish is to be a knight in the White Army of Delmar. The fact that he is a poor sixteen-year-old farmer with deceased parents does not deter him from dreaming and practicing with wooden sword dummies. He realizes his dreams and becomes a knight after a high-ranking knight sees him fight with an oppressor. However, his luck runs out when he gets exiled for saving a baby dragon since dragons are outlawed in Delmar. To make matters worse, he is killed, physically altered, and made to wake 3000 years later to an evil, decimated world and to the dragon he saved. While still holding a grudge because of his banishment, he must decide if he wants to save the world by working with a time-traveling wizard and the dragon. Join Aidan's daunting quest in The Roar of a Dragon by Robert Blanchard.

Prepare for a rich, wide-eyed experience! The dwarves, dragons, good and evil wizards, thieves, elves, goblins, and necromancers are only some of the magic and fantasy that The Roar of a Dragon promises. I was drawn into the story by Robert Blanchard's creative and fun characters. Aidan, the young protagonist, is a spirited and good-natured character; these are positive traits that should be encouraged in teenagers and even all adults. Apart from the sword fighting, there is no explicit content to be wary of. Some of the themes explored in The Roar of a Dragon include heroism, love, rivalry, forgiveness, friendship, and honor. As I loved the characters and the electric storyline, I recommend The Roar of a Dragon to all fantasy fans out there.
