A young man forced into action. A juvenile dragon alone in a new world. Whispers of a terrible evil returning to power. Perfect for fans of epic YA fantasy hits like Christopher Paolini’s Eragon and Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time, A.J. Walker’s Bond of a Dragon: Zahara’s Gift is the thrilling kickoff to a coming-of-age sword and sorcery saga packed with adventure, magic, and courage. Nineteen-year-old Anders is your average village fisherman, spending his days at sea and nights surrounded by the people he loves. Then, an attack from raiders changes everything forever, making the last of his living family hostages and throwing his village into chaos and destruction. Forced to embark on a journey to rescue his family, Anders quickly discovers that there is much more to the world than he was once told. Potent magical forces are revealed, and dangerous creatures like elves, orcs, and goblins lurk at every turn. Most intriguing is a young dragon named Zahara, with whom Anders has formed an unusually fast and strong bond. Along his journey, Anders begins to uncover shocking information regarding his family’s past, specifically the roles they may have played in The War of The Magicians and the circumstances surrounding the attack on his village. Not to mention Anders’ possible involvement in an ancient prophecy, one that speaks of dragons, powerful magic, and a terrible evil that threatens to destroy all. As more information comes to the surface, Anders must make a difficult decision – shall he follow the path laid out for him, or can he find a way to carve out his own destiny?
Robin's Review: "Bond of a Dragon" is book one in this epic fantasy series. I was thoroughly impressed with "Zahara's Gift," the first book in the series, written by the talented author J.D. Walker. The way in which he seamlessly blends action, adventure, and mystery is truly remarkable. What sets this book apart from others in its genre is the incorporation of multiple fantasy elements and creatures. Walker's descriptive writing is so rich that I found myself completely engrossed in the story and couldn't put it down. I highly recommend this author and his series.
