In a war of gods and tyrants, the will of the dragonrider must never falter.
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

Author Interview

Do you have a specific writing style? I enjoy writing from the first person perspective the most. It makes me feel much more connected to the characters and their experiences, almost like I’m exploring the world along with them. I like to choose a narrator who is relatable and likable, someone who can make us laugh and build a bond throughout the story. I’ve tried to write as the broody antiheroes in the past, and while I LOVE having those characters in my stories, it’s harder for me to channel that kind of personality.

Also, I tend to write from the perspective of male characters. I’m not sure why, but I’ve always gravitated to those kinds of narrators like Percy Jackson and Harry Dresden. I love feeling like I’m listening to an old friend tell me a story, and I adore a good underdog!

Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life? Absolutely! My husband is a fighter pilot in the United States Air Force, and I drew a lot from his personal journey through training, learning to fly, and then conducting a successful career. He actually was a huge help in developing a lot of the fine details in the story – like the dragonrider armor, saddles, and how they would train and be used in combat. I wanted to give as realistic a feel to this world as possible, so I constantly asked myself (and my husband) “If dragonriders were real, how would they do this?” My hope was that by making this feel as real as possible, it would help my readers become more invested in the world and the events. If it felt real, then they would fall in love with it just like I had.

Do you see writing as a career? 
I do—and I feel SO extremely blessed about that! It’s been a lot of work, and I got off to sort of an unconventional start, but now I’m so happy to be doing what I love for a living. It’s been an incredible journey so far and I can’t wait to see what’s next. 

Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?
This book in particular taught me a lot about endings. This is the last book in the Dragonrider Legacy series, and while there is one more dragonrider series coming next, this series marks the ending of the journey for many of the characters that I’ve been writing with since my career began. It’s been tough to say goodbye. And it’s been nostalgic to see them grow and change over the years, just like my writing has. But I’ve learned that every book and every series I write are opportunities for growth—to make myself better, to make my characters impact others, and to invite someone new to fall in love with reading.
