The Summer Dragon  by Todd Lockwood

 

The Summer Dragon by Todd Lockwood:

Maia and her family raise dragons for the political war machine. 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.

Why I’m waiting for The Summer Dragon:

DRAGOOOOONS!!! It’s so easy to make me want to read a book. Put a dragon on the cover or in the title and I’m already intrigued.

The Summer Dragon by Todd Lockwood is about people actually raising and bonding with dragons and that makes me even more excited. On top of that there is female main character who is willing to risk everything to have her own dragon. Sounds amazing and this better be good.
