The Dragon Kings have ruled over the realm for as long as any can remember. In the past Dragon Masters, powerful sorcerers, fought to free mankind from the Kings tyrannical rule. The strongest and last of the Masters, Nathan Bedlam, was brought down while slaying one of the Kings. Years have passed and the fiery, shape-sifting beings are at it again. It is up to Cabe Bedlam, the unknowing grandson of Nathan, to join the fight and save the realm. That's if he can learn his powers and stay alive first.

Firedrake is a straight forward story. There are no plot twists, the characters aren't very complex and many fantasy tropes are used. The world building was creative - I liked the varied levels of dragon society. A couple of the non-human characters were a lot of fun to read. I wish we'd seen more of them. I still found it an entertaining read. ( )

Cabe Bedlam is part of a world called The Dragonrealms that are overruled by vicious, tyrant Dragon Kings that control their land and make all the human citizens have no freedom. Cabe is no ordinary human, he’s the grandson of the great Nathan Bedlam and the son of the horrible Arzan Bedlam. Nathan defeated the Purple Dragon king with Arzan’s powerful weapon the Horned Blade, which is destined to kill any and all dragons or firedrakes with ease. But in the process, Nathan dies with the Purple Dragon. Now many years later, Cabe must fulfill the destiny that Nathan failed to do, while avoiding his father, all the Dragon Kings, the Shade, with the help of the Gryphon and Gwen. ( )
