For a Novella this is a well contained fast moving story.
The characters are full of depth and really keep you entertained.
A good quick read.

The Last Dragonrider is a romantic fantasy that has your average romantic interests and a typical fantasy setting.  While there is some inconstancy in the writing itself, inventing a few words and phrases in another language, an attempt at times to use older phrases often found in fantasy novels and fantastical sounding names.  Then there is modern phrases and the word fuck which has an equivalent in the made up language occurring to the glossary, along with other modern curses and insults.    
There isn't much to character building or world building.   There is no explanation for how the land is laid out, no explanation for the magic or runes that are used or even the dragons that are ridden.  There is a few slight explanations for the evil in the land and sort of the history as to why the war exists, but not how it has lasted for so long. 
The characters are forgettable, the story feels like so many that came before it, the romance feels slightly forced and even with battles and dragons and magic there is no epic fantasy feel to the story.  It's inoffensive but ultimately very forgettable.

The Last Dragon Rider by Errin Krystal is a fantasy novel that incorporates romance and revenge. 
I found it to be well written and engaging. My only quibble is that I found it a bit short. Regardless of that, the story was wrapped up nicely with no hanging plot lines and the characters were not left as empty shells. The ending also leaves readers hungry for the next installment in the series.
While I would not recommend the book to my family and friends the only reason being that they do not like this genre, I would feel comfortable in recommending this book to patrons at the library I work at who do enjoy romantic fantasy. This book would be suited to adults who enjoy fantasy intertwined with romance with strong female characters . There are no naïve, blushing ladies in this book, they know what they want and are unafraid to go for it. 

A free copy of this e-book was provided to me via Netgalley in exchange for a honest review.
