“What if everyone’s wrong about dragons?” Cairn asked. He barely dared to voice the thought. “What if dragons can be...trained?"
Farm-boy Cairn can hardly believe it when he is chosen to train as a rider for Star-King Elior.
Far from home in the mountains, where dragons lurk and war threatens, Cairn strives to become a great rider of Callenlas.
Does he have what it takes after all? And what is his friend Arunae hiding?
Ages: 9 - 16

"Even better than the first book in this series, Hess has outdone herself. I didn’t want this book to end, and would highly recommend it for its masterful storytelling as well as the way it shows us King Jesus."
Felicity Carswell, podcaster | Two Sisters and a Cup of Tea
"The air of Callenlas carries echoes of Narnia. Your children will want a shelf full of books like The First Skyrider.”
Nate Morgan Locke, Creative director | Speak Life
"Hess weaves together an incredibly compelling story. It's like if Harry Potter met How to Train your Dragon, but better!"
Bethan Lycett, author of The Pearl of Great Price
