Love Them or Hate Them: Dragon Books

I don’t know about you, but I love a good Fantasy story. I am finding that as I get older I get a bit more picky about the type of  Fantasy I will read. One type of story I find myself UNinterested in; anything that involves dragons. I know many people find the mystical creature which has so many dimensions to it, captivating. I don’t! I do appreciate that their characteristics are completely up to the author’s interpretation, so every story is different. In fact, I have a water dragon in the first story I wrote called DAWN OF DISARRAY. It is nothing like any dragon I have seen in any other story.

However, and in spite of these random tid-bits, it was a dragon story that started my whole foray into the world of writing. (ERAGON: written by a fourteen year old boy.) So in honor of that, here are a few dragon books, I’ve liked through the years. I would love any recommendations in this area since I am very under represented.

Click on the book or the title to be taken to my review about the book.


Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb
