At 16 years old, Daxon knew he was too old to be chosen to be a dragonrider. On his way home one night he was surprised when a wild dragon's egg was left in his care by the largest dragon he had ever seen. Agreeing to raise and protect the as yet unhatched egg, his hopes to become a dragonrider once more blossom, but again, fate intervenes.
When the young dragon hatches, Daxon's world is turned upside down and thrown into chaos. After learning of a mysterious orb and the possibility that it might hold all the dragonrider's dragons in thrall, he is determined to not let the same fate befall his young charge. He must find a way to protect the hatchling from the fate of the other dragons and a way off of Daegonlot before it's too late.

Dragon Orb is a short novella that sets the scene for the Dragons of Daegonlot series. It begins with Dax, a 16-year-old from unknown beginnings. He was taken in by two dragonriders and raised as their own. All his life, he has talked of becoming a dragonrider, but has yet to be chosen. One day, a wild dragon flies down before him, and charges him to take care of her egg. Dax does so, and this starts him on a whole new journey.
For only a short book, there is plenty of backstory and history to be gained, plus a host of captivating characters. I loved how Dax and 'Thira interacted with each other, and would love to know more. This is a teaser, a taster, that will definitely leave you wanting more.
