Book Description:

Captured and tortured by the brutal tyrant, Argonox, Reigh’s worst fears have now been realized. Argonox has successfully twisted his mysterious dark power for a truly evil purpose—reanimating the long-deceased legendary dragonrider, Beckah Derrick, and her monstrous king drake. But Argonox’s cruelty won’t end there, and Reigh fears the worst is yet to come. Rescue is unlikely as the Tibrans prepare to make their final strike, poised to break Maldobar’s ranks of proud dragonriders once and for all.

With many of its cities already captured by the Tibran Empire, all hope now rests with Jaevid, Princess Jenna, Phillip, and their mismatched band of dragonrider allies to lead the last stand and save their kingdom. Even in such frightful times, Jaevid may find he still has a few old friends ready to take up their weapons and stand at his side again. But facing down Beckah is perhaps the one thing that might break Jaevid’s resolve. Can he really strike down the woman he used to love in order to save the kingdom?

One final battle will decide the fate of our heroes. Can the strength dragonrider prevail once again? Or will the Tibran Empire become Maldobar’s new legacy?

“Bravery is not an immunity to fear—it is rising up to meet it with the hope that nothing is impossible.” — Sile Derrick, FLEDGLING

LEGEND is the final book in Nicole Conway’s trilogy DRAGONRIDER LEGACY, which also includes SAVAGE and HARBINGER.

Bellowing howls
and thunderous booms shook the ground under me. The sound of snarls, snapping
teeth against scales, and shrieks of pain seemed to come from every direction.
I recognized the deep inhale and throaty hiss, followed by the roar of flames.
A dragon was spitting its fiery venom so close by I could smell the acidic
tinge of it lingering in the air. The low hum of something huge swooshed right
over me, probably missing me by inches. A tail? Wings? Gods only knew. But I
couldn’t even lift my head to see.
The brawl seemed
to end as abruptly as it had begun. No more roars. No more flame. A break in
the commotion with only the distant sound of the battle to fill the silence.
A soft whine and
series of pops, clicks, and chirps resonated against my ear and a hot blast of
musky breath blasted over my cheek. I felt it. Something huge was looming over
me. But I couldn’t move or open my eyes.
A rough shove
rocked my senses, rolling me over so that I flopped onto my back. More hot
breaths blasted against my face. I didn’t have to see her. I knew it was Vexi.
It took every ounce of strength left in my body to will my eyes open. The end
of her big green nose was right in my face, smelling me and whining. She licked
at my forehead, one big swipe of sticky dragon spit up the bridge of my nose
all the way to my hairline.
“H-hey there,” I
managed to rasp weakly.
She chirped,
huge blue eyes blinking down at me with concern. Curling her scaly body around
me like a protective living barrier, she laid her head on the ground right next
to mine. Her ears perked toward me and nostrils puffed in deep, as though she
could sense I was in bad shape.
Too late, I
realized that leaving her, trying to send her away, was by far the stupidest
thing I’d ever done. That’s saying something, I know. Doing stupid stuff was
basically my life’s hobby. But Kiran had told me about the loyalty of dragons
many times. And right after Vexi chose me, Jenna had said something about it,
too. She’d said that our bond was special—that Vexi would stick by me no matter
what, even in death. At the time, I hadn’t understood what that meant.

Now I did.

Interview with Nicole Conway
Do your characters seem to hijack the story or do you feel like you have the reigns of the story?
They do, at times, tend to take over and when that happens I always go with it. For me, that is a magical moment when the characters and world has taken on a life of it’s own. Trying to fight against it can feel like paddling against a rushing river, and for me, the result is always obviously forced and wonky. Better to let the characters do the driving!
Convince us why you feel your book is a must read.
The Dragonrider Legacy is like How to Train Your Dragon meets Game of Thrones – it has all the action and complexity of a big-world epic fantasy, but all the relatable characters and heartwarming moments you want out of an adventure. I’m especially proud of this installment, LEGEND, because it will have you gripping your seat to the very end with fast-paced battles, spell-slinging action, romantic tension, and of course … DRAGONS!
Have you written any other books that are not published?
I’ve written and published 10 books so far, but I have 2 that are currently not published. One is a work in progress. I completed the first draft but it’s still not ready, so I will probably take another crack at it. The other is one I am writing now that won’t be ready for presentation to publishers for a few months.
Pen or type writer or computer?
Computer, usually. My handwriting is atrocious and I have a hard time reading it myself. Also, its frustrating not to be able to get the ideas out of my head as fast as I can with typing.
Anything you would like to say to your readers and fans?

I’d like to thank them for their loyalty and enthusiasm. Every time one of these books releases, I’m blown away at the response. I hope they’ll enjoy this thrilling ending to the series!
