The Spires of Dasny: Dragon Riders School by Cheryl Rush Cowperthwait is a fascinating tale that will delight fans of Christopher Paolini’s Inheritance series. The night her family is tortured and killed by evil knights, Seyra scales the Spires of Dasny, seeking safety in the place that was once known as the Dragon Riders School. Of course, that is what the stories say. When she wakes up in a deep, dark cavern, she is stunned to find a dragon looking at her, and more so that this mythical creature knows her name. And she can hear his thoughts. It is the dawn of a new age, the age of the dragon riders, and in this tale, three dragon riders unite in an adventure that fulfills an ancient prophecy. It is filled with secrets and a dangerous path they must walk to restore a world broken by evil.

Packed with action and featuring characters that readers can easily relate to, The Spires of Dasny: Dragon Riders School is a delightful treat for fans of fantasy and readers who enjoy stories with magical creatures and magic. The world of Seyra and Dreyth has rules of its own and the exotic setting with fascinating landscapes brings vivid images into the minds of readers. The story starts in an intriguing manner: a young character loses her entire family to the violence of ruthless knights and while on the run, she makes a startling discovery that opens a path to a new experience and mission. Cheryl Rush Cowperthwait writes in an engrossing first-person narrative and employs prose that is beautiful and filled with exciting descriptions. It is fast-paced and filled with action and adventure; an epic fantasy with phenomenal characters and strong conflict. It is as entertaining as it is well-written.
