The Raging One is the first book in The Sunderedlands Saga series, written by Lexy Wolfe.

Ages ago, the Raging One, dragon god of the warrior people, vanished in the final assault of the Great War that shattered the land called Desantiva. Nearly destroyed themselves, the children of magic withdrew from the world and kept to their own territory of Forenta. But now, the fragile balance is in jeopardy from a danger that forces Almek, the last Sentinel of Time, to leave the sanctuary of his goddess, the Timeless One, to hunt for what had always been considered mere legend: those able to touch more than one of the many energies of magic that hold the world together.

It has humor, drama, romance, social exploration and action all woven together without needing teen angst or glittering vampires to enjoy.
