The Rage of DragonsFrom Goodreads: 

Game of Thrones meets Gladiator in this debut epic fantasy about a world caught in an eternal war, and the young man who will become his people's only hope for survival. 

The Omehi people have been fighting an unwinnable fight for almost two hundred years. Their society has been built around war and only war. The lucky ones are born gifted. One in every two thousand women has the power to call down dragons. One in every hundred men is able to magically transform himself into a bigger, stronger, faster killing machine. 

Everyone else is fodder, destined to fight and die in the endless war. 

Young, gift-less Tau knows all this, but he has a plan of escape. He's going to get himself injured, get out early, and settle down to marriage, children, and land. Only, he doesn't get the chance. Those closest to him are brutally murdered, and his grief swiftly turns to anger. Fixated on revenge, Tau dedicates himself to an unthinkable path. He'll become the greatest swordsman to ever live, a man willing to die a hundred thousand times for the chance to kill the three who betrayed him. The Rage of Dragons launches a stunning and powerful debut epic fantasy series that readers are already calling "the best fantasy book in years."
I had this on my list because on the publishing schedule at Orbit it's listed as being released February 19th, but on Amazon it says July 16th. I don't really know, but it can't hurt to go ahead and share my interest already! This sounds like a really interesting setup and I'm excited to see how the author executes this. And I really hope there are good dragons. 🤞
