Synopsis

Dragon Orb: Shadow by Mark Robson

Dragon's in Areth each have a single predestined rider and a single life mission, given to them by the Oracle. But this once all-powerful being is now fatally damaged and fading fast...Only the dragons and their riders can save it!

Pell and his night dragon Shadow must find the dark orb to help save the Oracle, leader of all dragonkind. But Segun, a power-hungry tyrant, stands in their way.

Pell must use his flying skills, bravery and resourcefulness to the limit, as Segun is determined to get the orb - even if it means killing the opposition...

This is the second title in the Dragon Orb series, following on from the highly successful debut Firestorm.

Reviews

Charming, full of courage and a tale to bring to the fore the more admirable virtues of mankind along with an epic adventure its mainly a tale about working together to accomplish a greater good against the oppression of the power hungry and selfish. A great story to inspire. -- Falcata Times

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.
