The first book in this fantasy adventure. Spectacular dragon rides and dangerous quests fill the pages of this, the first in the Dragon Orb fantasy adventure series set in a world that was once all-powerful and is now dying. The lives of the dragons and the riders are at stake and there is only one rider together with her dragon who can begin the task of saving them. She must put aside her fear and put herself in huge danger in order to claim the first of four Orbs and restore their world.

To read the books in order start with Firestorm then, Shadow, finally Longfang.

About the Author

Mark Robson

Mark was born in Wanstead, Essex in 1966, but was raised for the most part of his school years near Carmarthen in West Wales. In 1982 he won a scholarship to join the RAF as a pilot and was an operational pilot in the RAF for over twenty years. During that time he flew for three years on the Victor air-to-air refuelling tankers, for four and a half years as a flying instructor on Jet Provost and Tucano training aircraft and for eight years at Brize Norton, Oxon, as copilot, captain and instructor on the VC10 aircraft.

Mark started writing his first novel in 1995 due to a throwaway line! He was bored in the Falkland Islands as the weather was too bad to do any flying and, in a fit of pique at Mark’s waspishness with the inactivity, his navigator said “Oh for goodness sake do something useful. Go write a book or something!” Never one to back down from a challenge, Mark made a deal that he would write the Prologue to a book and if the said navigator liked it, then Mark would write the rest of the book. Three days later, the Prologue to The Forging of the Sword was dutifully handed over to a positive response and The Darkweaver Legacy was born.
