Review: Moth and Spark

Anne Leonard’s debut novel isn’t just a fantasy epic, it’s a story of discovery. The main characters, Corin and Tam, discover their place in their kingdoms, their hidden talents, and a blossoming and impossible love for each other, while at the same time the reader discovers the author’s intricate world and its magic, all acting as the backdrop to a tale of plots, betrayals, marauding armies, and hidden agendas.

And also there are dragons.

Review: Shadow Scale

Shadow Scale, Rachel Hartman’s sequel to 2012’s Seraphina, was released months ago and I’m kicking myself for not reading it sooner. It’s full of dragons and music, adventure and magic, and it’s the first book in a long time where I kept counting to see how many pages were left; not because I wanted to finish, but because I knew I was running out of time to stay in the book. I was honestly sad when it was over.

Review: Dragonsong and Dragonsinger

Warning, great big spoilers.

Even though I graduated *ahem,mumble,cough* years ago, I still get a flood of memories around back-to-school season. Many are positive, some less so. By far the best memories involve Anne McCaffrey’s Harper Hall trilogy; my sixth-grade English teacher read the first two books out loud to our class over the course of most of the school year.

First printed in the 1970’s, Dragonsong and Dragonsinger tells the story of Menolly, a lonely teenager living a repressed life in a fishing village that doesn’t have any patience for girls who want to be musicians.  Friendless and miserable, she runs away and purely by accident becomes the owner of nine fire-lizards: miniature telepathic dragons who are loyal to her and her alone. Imagine being a somewhat awkward middle-schooler and getting to hear a story like that. If you’ve ever wondered why my twitter and Deviantart names both have the word “dragon” in them, this would be the reason why.
