Ah, it’s the Memorial Day weekend, and the heady of scent of meat cooking over blazing grills permeates the air. What a great time to pick up a book about a dragon shifter. In this case, a fire dragon shifter. Leo can barbeque steak as easily as he can rescue his beloved, setting an SUV ablaze with skilled ease. What’s not to love about a guy who can fly, save your butt from bad guys, and ignite a bonfire for a romantic evening in the desert with just one breath? Read more

Moth and Spark caught my eye because it has dragons. Ever since my introduction to Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Pern when I was a young, impressionable girl, I have been hooked on dragons. Who wouldn’t want to take flight with a majestic beast and save the world from whatever dangers beset it? Aside from having dragons and dragonriders, though, I would consider Moth and Spark more like A Game of Thrones, with less bloodshed, fewer heartrending deaths, and a lot more romance. The focus of this novel is on politics and the machinations behind the war that is unleashed on Prince Corin’s small kingdom. Chosen by the dragons to free them from their slavery to the Empire, Corin is challenged at every step to find a way to fulfill his duty to the stolen dragons. Read more

The Ice Dragon
Most CERTAINTLY Contains Spoilers
I enjoyed The Ice Dragon – until the end. Considering the amount of death and mayhem in The Game of Thrones, I should have expected some unpleasantness in this book, but because it’s being marketed to MG readers, I was caught by surprise. True to life, the children in George R R Martin’s stories aren’t immune from the turmoil of war, and Adara learns first hand that opposing forces make no distinction between non-combatants and enemy soldiers.

I’m not going to lie. The main draw for me to want to read Open Flame was the cover. I love the intensity, and was hopeful that the story would match the cover. Does it? While I enjoyed it quite a bit, the short length meant little character development and uneven pacing at times. Still, this is a fun read, and I’d read more in the series without a second thought.
