The Most Unique, Fully-Realized Dragon Books Ever

This is the second Dragon Dreamer book. If you haven’t read the first one, you can still completely enjoy Dragon Lightning. If you have read the first one, you’ll be happy to meet your favorite characters again when they return for a new adventure that introduces the legendary ice dragons.

Drakor, an ice dragon, is the hero of this new story. Coming from a dragon culture where might makes right, he is burdened with foresight that a disaster awaits his island, but no one will listen to him because he’s not the strongest. Can he, with the help of his new friends and the new skills they share with him, help him to save his clan?

So, why the claim that this series is, has the most unique and fully-realized dragons? The world-building has scientific, instead of magical, underpinnings. The author creates complex cultures for her creatures in which all the details, from how dragon lightning is generated to how the intricate, beautiful dragon nests are created, are explained by physics, chemistry, and biology. Also, the reader gets full immersion into the art, history, social norms and foods of several different cultures on a level that other books/series just don’t match. How these cultures clash and come together in complicated ways is one of the author’s favorite themes.

But, the real question is if this is a good story? Yup. You’ll be cheering for Drakor!
