Interview with Kristian Alva:

Where did you get the idea for the Dragon Stones Saga?
I’ve always wanted to create a fantasy world. I love all the traditional fantasy elements—dragons, elves, spellcasters, evil emperors, etc. I wanted to create a world where all those elements existed. I knew that fans would love this traditional fantasy, because that’s what I loved to read when I was younger. I wanted to create something that was easy for teens to read, but still enjoyable as light reading for adults. And that’s exactly why the books have been successful.

The Dragon Stones saga has expanded to six books. Are any more planned after that?
Yes. There’s definitely a demand, so I am planning another trilogy after the “Chronicles of Tallin.” I already have something in mind, but right now it’s just a rough outline. These books have a solid fan base, and they want more. I really love these characters, and my fans do too. The series has already sold over 100,000 copies, so I will keep writing as long as fans continue reading them.

You recently released an audiobook edition. How has that gone?
The audiobook has rave reviews, even better reviews than the paperback! {laughs} Seriously, though, our voice actor, Adam Chase, is absolutely fantastic. He’s added his own interpretation of the characters and fans love it! The audiobook is hugely popular, and I have to give the credit to Adam. We were so lucky to get him for this series.

Tell us about the next book in the series.
The next release is Rise of the Blood Masters, and it continues the story of Durn and the survival of the dragons, which had almost gone extinct. I have already released a little teaser content on my website, so here it is: the dwarf kingdom sinks into civil war, and Tallin’s secret history is revealed. That’s it, though. No more hints or spoilers! The cover has been revealed and it’s beautiful. August 30, 2014 is the release date, and we’re right on target for an on-time release.

Meet the Books:

The Dragon Stones Saga is a best selling young adult fantasy series intended for teens, with crossover appeal for adults.

Book One: Dragon Stones

Synopsis:
Sequestered deep in the capital, the tyrannical Emperor Vosper weaves a plan to destroy all the dragons. He succeeds in driving them to the very brink of extinction. Only a handful of dragons and riders remain; living in exile in the desert.

When young Elias Dorgumir finds a carved dragon stone in the forest, it brings empire soldiers to his doorstep, and puts Elias on the run with a bounty on his head. With some help from his friends, Elias must escape the emperor’s wrath and try to make it to the safety of the dwarf caverns. Is Elias strong enough to save himself and halt the evil that is spreading across the land?

Book Two: Return of the Dragon Riders

Synopsis:
The evil emperor Vosper gathers his troops in the east, poised to conquer the entire continent.

His target is the rebel city of Parthos, a constant thorn in his side, and the last sanctuary of the Dragon Riders. Besieged from all sides, the remaining Dragon Riders come out of hiding. Forced to fight for their lives, they leave the safety of the desert, traveling across the land to gather intelligence and shore up forgotten alliances. At the center of it all is Elias Dorgumir, the key to an ancient prophesy, and Vosper will do anything to get his hands on him. Is it too late for the Dragon Riders to save Elias and stop Vosper from destroying the only refuge they have left?


Book Three: Vosper’s Revenge

Synopsis:
As the races of Durn stand on the brink of war, the power-hungry emperor plans his conquest of the entire continent. The dragon riders are fragmented. They have been scattered across the land; weakened by the discovery of a traitor in their own ranks. Are the riders strong enough to defeat Vosper before he destroys them all?

Book Four:The Balborite Curse

Synopsis:
After five years of fragile peace, things are changing rapidly.

The dwarf kingdom is crumbling into civil war in the midst of the worst clan schism in a thousand years. With the clans weakened by infighting, the entire dwarf kingdom is vulnerable to attack.

Tallin Arai, the dragon rider, must leave the desert and the city he loves when someone puts a bounty on his head. He suspects the Balborites–a fanatic cult that trains deadly mageborn assassins. He sets out on a journey to save the dwarves from civil war and stop the Balborite assassins once and for all.

Is Tallin strong enough to save them all?
