"And the fifth Rider is . . ."


Royal princess Ashlyn Rehlia thinks her life to be both a blessing and a curse.

On one hand, she's a princess. She's never had to work for anything a day in her life, and she has never had to experience an ounce of pain, except for maybe the loss of her workaholic father to a nameless assassin.

On the other hand, Ashlyn almost wishes she were an orphan. Her mother controls every aspect of her life, from who she courts to where she goes to what she says, hiding her away from the public eye like an ugly stain on a favored dress.

So with the annual dragon rider Selecting approaching, Ashlyn can't wait to attend now that she's of age. However, her mother has no intention of letting her go, and Ash is forced to bend the rules to do what she wants--and what she's destined to do.

For when Ashlyn attends the Selecting, she is offered the chance of a lifetime, a chance she can't possibly ignore. But when secrets arise, identities are revealed, and the very nature of the world hangs in the balance, Ash finds herself right in the middle of it all, the deciding factor in an equation she doesn't fully understand.

For star's sake, she just wanted a simple life. How hard could it be?

@inspiredwriter3456 @EMSheriff @DragonOfFantasy2 @silverfeather14 Here's the rewrite, guys, in case you're still interested. Sorry if I'm annoying you. I've been doing that a lot.
Wait, the first version also, or just the new version since 2016?
I beg your pardon, Your Majesty, but there’s a reason it’s called The Dragon Queen’s Heir!
“And so it begins.” 
                              I always picture dark and gloomy whenever I see this, lol.
