But if you like that trope, you're going to be okay with the eggs, impression, shared emotional states with dragons, etc. i’ve been eyeing this trilogy since months but never had the chance to read it so when i finally did, i had high expectations - obviously. fireborne took me by complete surprise in the best way possible, when i went into this story with the only knowledge that it had an academy for dragonriders. Back in the home country, the famine is ongoing, and people with lower medal rankings are receiving smaller rations than people with higher medal rankings (which includes Our Heroes).

Fireborne moved me, it surprised me, it thrilled me, it enraged me, it made me cry, it made me think. After fleeing the revolution and settling into the craggy cliffs of New Pythos, the dragonlords are eager to punish their usurpers and reclaim their city. The romance is nuanced and slow burn, as they jockey for position in the government as well as with their feelings. The mirroring of our characters, going through similar arcs but making different decisions based on privilege and status. This reads like an amalgamation of several dragon books ( A Game of Thrones and Harry Potter among others), but without those books’ distinct voices and characters.

With war on the horizon and his relationship with Annie changing fast, Lee must choose to kill the only family he has left or to betray everything he’s come to believe in.

However, Annie noted how he looked similar to his father, many of the Golds knew his father way better than Annie did, even the new leader, I'm surprised no one noted the similarity. By the end of this one the action certainly picked up but I would have loved for that to have happen much sooner. I loved everything about this book: it’s exciting, it’s philosophical; it’s hopeful; it’s dark; it’s full of dragons and politics; it’s romantic in that grand, heroic tradition, without downplaying the ugly reality of governance and revolution and war.It adds in a cadre of dragons to make the world a hotter place, but ultimately what saves this book is the slow burn romance.

The book does a great job developing their long-term friendship and showing how they have come to understand each other and despise growing up in the circumstances they did. Actually even more maddening to me than a lack of policy (eh, maybe not; maybe it’s a toss-up, I find both of these things frustrating) is the suggestion that you can foment and enact revolution without getting your hands dirty. But Lee has a secret: He’s the scion of the old dragonlords, who watched his whole family die in Atreus’s coup d’etat all those years ago.As for dragons, you're probably wondering "this book has dragons, there is a dragon on a cover, why are you not mentioning the dragons?
