First off this was amazing, the author did not hold back any punches on the twists. Things happened and i screamed no way, or holy shit, or no she did not just do that. You got 5 royal houses who have groomed their children to compete in a competition for the throne. Ok nothing new there this a theme we seen. Here were the first of many twists come in first of all their dragons and the great dragon calls the competitors to a summoning circle. Of course everyone expects it to be those they groomed, who is called is not who is to be. Second what makes this different is the traditions that surround this country. When you die if you have a dragon it eats you. Never seen that before. The uniqueness of this story does not stop there but i hate to give it all away. Just know their magic, brutal killing, some romance, and a hard fought battle for the throne. I would very much recommend this one to Game of Throne Fans, Six of Crows fans, and anyone who enjoys multiple points of views stories with dragons, yep dragons and of course dragons. Happy reading.
