The Rosinanti Dragons are no more. Since their extinction nearly one thousand years ago these primal powerhouses have fallen into the obscurity of history’s forgotten lore. In that time, humans have come to dominate the world of Terra, peacefully ignorant to one horrifying truth: ancient evil stirs around them, waiting to reclaim its lost world.
For Valentean Burai, animus warrior of the kingdom of Kackritta, the details surrounding humanity’s victory over the Rosinanti are more than just a history lesson. The long-buried mysteries of this archaic conflict may hold the answers that he has so desperately sought regarding his own past.
As the awful truth of the Rosinanti’s supposed demise comes to light, Valentean must stand together with Seraphina, a magically gifted princess, to embark upon a mission to maintain order and light throughout Terra. Only together can these two lifelong friends face down the resurgence of the Rosinanti legacy, and combat the greatest threat their world has ever known.

Read this book!! Brilliant!!

I absolutely love this book! I read the newly re-edited version, and this is truly a quality piece of writing. The world Kevin created is so full and intoxicating. I feel like I’m there on Terra with the characters, and the feeling of being in their world stays with me even when I’m forced to put the book down and re-enter reality. I haven’t read a book with such a totally encompassing, engrossing world since Harry Potter. Beyond that, Kevin’s writing is superb. The characters are so real and layered, and their dialogue feels natural. I don’t want to give any spoilers away, but this book will pull you in right from the start, not let you go, and leave you dying to read the next in the series. Kevin’s talent and passion for writing are evident on every page. Read. This. Book. I can’t wait to read the others in the series!

The Rise of the Dragon Lord has been my favorite book in the series

So far, The Rise of the Dragon Lord has been my favorite book in the series. Kessler’s evocative writing in this book will pull the full spectrum of emotions from you—from abject terror to empathy and unceasing hope, and above all, love. All along, the series has been leading us to the climactic battle for Terra and continues to do so in a thrilling and captivating way. As with Wrath of the Faithful, the best part of this story is the characters themselves and the personal journey each must take as they tackle heavy choices and consequences. I eagerly await the next installment in this series.

Fantastic dark fantasy
I’ve been in reading slump for a few months when I spied a post from Kevin about a different series. He was very kind telling me about Winters of Alnora.
I had previously read 3 of the Rosinanti series( books 1, 1.5 and 2). So I had a feel for the writing style of the author.
As a dark fantasy, expect dark themes throughout.
Kevin made it so easy to empathize with Alnora right from the opening lines. He can transport you to this world, I totally immersed myself in the story, when you actually feel cold just from the words you read, that is a job well done by the author.
This is a short story, it made passing time through a storm fly by.
I highly recommend Kevin’s books to any and all fantasy lovers. He puts a fresh spin on his books in a difficult genre to carve a path in.
I don’t know if there will be any more books in this series, but I would very much welcome more.
Fantastic job Kevin J. Kessler.
Now, I have another Rosinanti book to get into. Grab these books, I am so very happy to have found them.
