The Royal Dragoneers (Book 1)

 

After struggling for more than two centuries to tame the inhospitable, dragon infested Islands where they washed up, the descendants of the survivors of a lost passenger ship are now striving to tame the Mainland they have found.

But the Goblin King, an Ivory antlered demon called Gravelbone, has a different plan for the men who are invading his territory. He and his Nightshade are rallying the trolls to defend their lands. With the help of the dragons, goblins, and orcs they plan on rendering the wall the humans have built useless so that they can drive man back to the islands from where they came. 

When stubborn King Blanchard finally accepts that the kingdom really is under attack it may be too late, and the only ones who can save the people on the Mainland have been locked away in the dungeon.

Join some brave young men and their mentor, a grizzled old King’s Ranger, and a particularly clever young magic wielding woman, as they traverse the wild frontier and sail to King’s Island to warn the King of the warring trolls. Then hold on for your life as you tear through the pages, because the pure blooded dragons our heroes have befriended have another plan in store.

Cold Hearted Son of a Witch (Book 2)

 

Zahrellion, Rikky, and their dragons, embark on a quest to find the special mushrooms Mysterian needs to save Prince Richard from Gravelbone’s poison.

Meanwhile, Jenka and his loveable dragon, Jade, escort the King’s Rangers back to Kingsmen’s Keep. When Jenka and the half-elvish mute, Lemmy, find a map at the Temple of Dou, they follow it and find more trouble than they bargained for. 

Ultimately, the five Dragoneers come together as they are forced to stand and face a terrible threat that is only just revealing itself.      …Hold On To Your Dragon!

The Confliction (Book 3)

 

 

In this episode, The Dragoneers face the Sarax that were loosed in Book II – Cold Hearted Son of a Witch, as well as the rogue druids of Dou, and something else that no one, not even the remaining Hazeltine Witches expect.

Wild aerial antics, powerful magical attacks, and a final conflict that ends in a breathtaking climax are just some of the thrills that await readers in this installment of the International Bestselling Dragoneer Saga.

Don’t blink your eyes, watch your back, and no matter what you do: HOLD ON TO YOUR DRAGON!

In the wake of the Confliction, the Mainland Frontier is trying to reestablish itself. Over a year has passed since their victory over the alien shape shifter and its vicious Sarax. Jenka was infused with powerful Dour magic and has assumed some of the alien’s intelligence, but immediately after the battle he disappeared with Crimzon, and no one knows when, or if, they will ever return. With little help from King Richard, who is intent to rule the islands and leave his side of the wall to its fate, Queen Zahrellion, and the other Dragoneers are struggling to make sense of their place in the world, while unbeknownst to them an evil witch is plotting terrible mayhem.

Jenka, saturated with magic to the point of near insanity, will have to focus just to stay in the world of the living.

Jenka gave his word to get her back and must go alone, deep into the wizard’s temple to find her.

Terror, destruction, and death await the Dragoneers, their dragons, and their children in a gripping conclusion that delivers an end to the saga that will satisfy Dragoneer, Crimzon and Clover, and even The Wardstone Trilogy’s fans.

Crimzon and Clover Short Story Series (8 Book Series)

 

Crimzon & Clover by M. R. Mathias

It isn’t wise to mess with a girl and her dragon, at least not these two.

A young dragon, named Crimzariathon, loses his mother to lair raiders and is left to fend for himself. A lucky girl, aptly named Clover, happens upon him and together they form a lasting bond. When more men come to raid the lair the two are forced to defend themselves, and each other, in a wicked battle. Magic, swordplay, and dragon riding glory await in this satisfying 25 page short story.

Snippet:
The cool night air rushed over them as they circled slowly upward on Crimzon’s strong, steady thrusts. In the dragon’s head his mother’s soft voice whispered both instruction and encouragement, and the feeling of Clover on his back gave him the confidence and reassurance he needed to avoid falter.

They climbed so high into the sky that Clover thought she just might be able to touch the stars twinkling above them. Her blood was electric with sensation. Her skin was chilled by the rushing air and her stomach was tingling as if full of wiggling snakes. She drew in a deep breath trying to calm herself but it was no use. Just as soon as she exhaled Crimzon rolled to the right and then dove sharply, leaving the wiggling snakes from Clover’s belly lumped in the back of her throat. Her mind was spinning like a whirlpool.

Far below, the majesty of the moonlit valleys and the hue of colors reflecting from the rocky snow-capped ridges unfolded before them. Clover marveled at the dozens of rivers and streams that glittered like strands and pools of molten gold. The force of the air pressed hard against her as Crimzon dove. She began to feel dizzy and distant, but before she slipped into unconsciousness, the dragon leveled out and sped them across the treetops at such speed that all Clover could see below was a shadowy blur. Soon their momentum died away and Crimzon began to circle and rise again, but now at a more relaxed pace. Clover was glad. She felt rubbery and nauseated. Sick or not she had to admit that it was the most exhilarating experience she had ever had.
