His Majesty’s Dragon by Naomi Novak


I am yet to read anything by Naomi Novak, however I am desperate to. I love the look of her retellings, however, this looks awesome, plus I heard the word ‘bromance’ uttered and now its on my TBB/TBR. We follow Captain Will Laurence as he leaves the sea for the skys… on a dragon in a battle that sees Britain vs France. With Dragons. SOLD!

Talon by Julie Kagawa


I love Julie Kagawa’s work and sometimes it feels like she writes what I want! I had just come home from an amazing honeymoon in Japan when she announced ‘Shadow Of The Fox’ series and now I’m looking for dragon book recs and there she is ahead of the game again! It looks like a beast of a series but I am here for it! Dragons, dragonslayers and a secret, one girl will uncover.

The Priory Of The Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon


This is on my September TBR as I am off on a beach holiday and with the kindle version, for on the go reading, and the hardcover for by the beach and by the pool reading I am ready to fall headfirst into this world of dragons, battles and intrigue. This is a tome of a book with 848 pages of action and awesomeness. I am ready.

The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli


I’ll admit I have only read the first of this series! But I loved it so much I wrote a review! Kristen’s writing is beautiful and how she writes relationships, emotions and action is just perfect for the atmosphere of The Last Namsara. Asha is a dragonslayer and we follow her journey as she slaughters dragons to repent for a sin she commited as a child, my review goes into further depth however if you are already interested, just read it. It’s beautiful!

Golden Braids & Dragon Blades by Melanie Karsak


Did we really think, we were going to get through a post without a retelling? I am a huge fan of Melanie Karsak, her books are short, to the point and cute as hell! Technically this is the fourth instalment of the steampunk retellings, but I read them all in a week and regretted nothing! They are also available on Kindle Unlimited at the moment! If you couldn’t tell this is a retelling of Rapunzel and she has dragons! 3 in fact and an unhatched egg of a fourth. That’s all I’ll say I’d hate to ruin it!

Happy Reading!
