Trained as an elite warrior from childhood, the elven crown prince FlintathriŽl fights to bring a stop to a war that began before he was born. With the aid of his betrothed SairalindŽ, a skilled mage and dragon rider in her own right, they must find the Book of Souls Ė an ancient and mysterious tome rumored to have belonged to the god Hath'Raal.
When the missing book turns up in the hands of Mnuvae, the bastard child of the dead king, FlintathriŽl finds himself fighting to not only save his people from this new threat but also trying to keep SairalindŽ safe when Mnuvae takes over the dragons in her attempt to win back the kingdom she believes is rightfully hers.
The love FlintathriŽl and SairalindŽ share shines pure and true, but when the smoke of the battle clears, will their hearts survive the aftermath of war or will their love become a casualty that cannot be revived?

THE LAST DRAGON RIDER starts off with a child being read a bedtime story. It quickly changes to become THE story, and you learn first-hand about the love between FlintathriŽl and SairalindŽ. There is additional action, both of the battle and romantic kinds, between Flint's sister and the Captain of the special guard. Although this is only a short novel, you get a lot of background knowledge, but it isn't just 'info-dumped' on you. You find out more snippets as the story progresses, the characters develop, and situations turn tense.
This is very well written, with excellent descriptions throughout. There were no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. The ending, whilst not expected, certainly left me wanting to know more. Absolutely recommended by me.
