The Summer Dragon

DAW

(1)
The debut novel from the acclaimed illustrator--a high fantasy adventure featuring dragons and deadly politics.

Maia and her family raise dragons for the political war machine. As she comes of age, she hopes for a dragon of her own to add to the stable of breeding parents. But the war goes badly, and the needs of the Dragonry dash her hopes. Her peaceful life is shattered when the Summer Dragon-one of the rare and mythical High Dragons-makes an appearance in her quiet valley. The Summer Dragon is an omen of change, but no one knows for certain what kind of change he augurs. Political factions vie to control the implied message, each to further their own agendas.

And so Maia is swept into an adventure that pits her against the deathless Horrors-thralls of the enemy-and a faceless creature drawn from her fears. In her fight to preserve everything she knows and loves, she uncovers secrets that challenge her understanding of her world and of herself.

As she comes of age, she anticipates a dragon of her own to add to the stable of breeding parents. Her peaceful life is shattered when the Summer Dragon—one of the rare and mythical High Dragons—makes an appearance in her quiet valley. Political factions vie for control of the implied message, threatening her aspirations, her aerie, her entire way of life. The bond between dragons and their riders is deep and life-long, and Maia’s desire for a dragon of her own to train, ride, fly, and love drives her to take a risk that puts her life at stake. She is swept into an adventure that pits her against the deathless Horrors, thralls of the enemy, and a faceless creature drawn from her fear. In her fight to preserve everything she knows and loves, she exposes a conspiracy, unearths an ancient civilization, and challenges her understanding of her world—and of herself.” – taken from goodreads.com I love this book so much. Lockwoods storytelling got me from page one and it instantly made me switch from reading to just being right there and living the story. This feeling is exactly why I love reading so much. And while reading a lot there’s only a few books that synchronise so well with my own imagination. “The Summerdragon” is written by someone who loves dragons and you can feel that while reading. Lockwood also did some illustrations that add even more details to his story. Maia is a young woman of action rather than of words and it fits her character. There is little time for her to hold epic speeches and I imagine talking alone would get her more in trouble than help her. She has quite a lot to endure and while she’s strong it also shows that she can’t just shrug it off like nothing. Which I liked a lot about her since that made her realistic and human. Keirr is wonderful. She’s a dragon everyone who ever dreamed about dragons would love to have. This is the first part of Maia and Keirrs journey and I can’t wait for the next book (though sadly there doesn’t seem to be a release date or any information about the second book at all).
