From #1 Bestselling author Morgan Rice comes a sweeping new epic fantasy series: RISE OF THE DRAGONS (KINGS AND SORCERERS—Book 1). Kyra, a 15 year old girl who dreams of following in her father’s footsteps and becoming a famed warrior, is a finer archer than all the others. As she grapples to understand her skills, her mysterious inner power, and what secret is being kept from her about her birth, she comes to realize that she is different than the others, and that hers is a special destiny.
But her people live under the thumb of oppressive noblemen, and when she comes of age and the local lord comes for her, her father weds her off to save her. Kyra, though, refuses, and she journeys out on her own, into the dangerous wood—where she encounters a wounded dragon and ignites a series of events that will change the course of the kingdom forever.
Links to all available free (legal) PDFs for 5e so far. I was making this list for my players, but I figured I'd post it online anyway in case it helps others. There are a lot of spells, magic items, monsters, etc. Covered between all the various PDFs. For example, many spells found in the player's handbook but not covered in the. Middle-Earth This section presents profiles for a host of new characters and warriors that are introduced in The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies™. Now you can collect iconic Heroes from the movies, including Thorin’s Company wearing royal armour, Bard the Bowman firing the Windlance and the terrible dragon Smaug. As if that wasn’t.
15 year old Alec, meanwhile, sacrifices for his brother, taking his place in the draft, and is carted off to The Flames, a wall of flames a hundred feet high that keeps back the army of Trolls to the north. On the other side of the kingdom, Merk, a mercenary striving to leave behind his dark past, quests through the wood to become a Watcher of the Towers and help guard the Sword of Fire, the magical source of the kingdom’s power. But the Trolls want the Sword, too—and they have other plans, preparing for a massive invasion that could destroy the kingdoms forever.
With its strong atmosphere and complex characters, RISE OF THE DRAGONS is a sweeping saga of knights and warriors, of kings and lords, of honor and valor, of magic, destiny, monsters and dragons. It is a story of love and broken hearts, of deception, of ambition and betrayal. It is fantasy at its finest, inviting us into a world that will live with us forever, one that will appeal to all ages and genders.

The Earth Dragon Awakes
by Laurence Yep
It is April 18, 1906, at 5:11 a.m. You are awakened by a gentle movement of your bed. It trembles beneath you. In the next moment, your bed is dancing across the floor of your room. You hop out of bed and feel the floor roll like a wooden sea beneath your feet. Your desk crawls toward a window. Before you can reach the door, books topple off your shelves, and boxes clobber you on the head. When you finally reach your door, you find it is jammed tight. Now, the walls begin to crack around you and the ceiling rains down. You hope it is just your worst nightmare....but it isn't. The Great Earthquake of 1906 is just beginning. You will need all the courage and perseverance you can gather to survive the next day of your life.
Chin and his father, Ah Sing, face even greater danger, for their home is in a poorly built tenement house in Chinatown. On the other side of town, Henry Travis and his wealthy family are no better off. You can travel back in time with them through The Earth Dragon Awakes. You will read about hardships, death, heroism, and survival.
Incredible depth of fact is woven into the captivating story of the Great Earthquake as told from three points of view...Chin's, Henry's, and that of an earthquake expert...The Earth Dragon. Laurence Yep's masterful storytelling and short chapters make the story inviting to readers of all ages.
Provided with the unit are Refugee Situation Cards that accompany the Kids Wings Unit for The Earth Dragon Awakes.
