The Dragon's Legacy by Deborah A. Wolf

The Dragon’s Legacy (The Dragon's Legacy, #1)

Chapter 1

"Akari Sun Dragon had long since flown down beyond the horizon in search of his lost love, and the night unfurled velvet soft. A hundred girls and half again as many women had left Shahad at daybreak and traveled tot he Madraj, the meeting-places of all the prides.

Sulema stood tall among her yearmates, surrounded by Ja'Akari, warriors stern-faced and proud. When next the sun rose, she would be one of them. It was the fist day of spring in her seventeenth year, and the last day of her childhood."

I was finally able to start on this one a few days ago and I'm really enjoying it! It took me a little while to get into this one, simply because new epic fantasy books always take a bit of adjusting, but now I'm going strong

What do you think? Would you keep reading this? (And feel free to join in and make your own post!) 
If you're enticed by this chapter, be sure to check out the full synopsis on Goodreads!

  1. I generally like epic fantasy, but the opening of this didn't call to me. Maybe I'd have to read a bit more.

  2. I don't usually read fantasy, but I can imagine this one to be very tempting. Gorgeous cover, too. Here's mine: “VIVIAN IN RED”

  3. I'm curious about the rites of passage in this book's opening. I don't often read fantasy, but this sounds like a good story.
    My Tuesday post features Kiss the Girls and Make Them Die.

  4. I would indeed keep reading! It's portentous in a good way.
