House of Dragons(House of Dragons #1)by Jessica Cluess

Five royal houses will hear the call to compete in the Trial for the dragon throne. A liar, a soldier, a servant, a thief, and a murderer will answer it. Who will win?

When the Emperor dies, the five royal houses of Etrusia attend the Call, where one of their own will be selected to compete for the throne. It is always the oldest child, the one who has been preparing for years to compete in the Trial. But this year is different. This year, these five outcasts will answer the call….

THE LIAR: Emilia must hide her dark magic or be put to death.

THE SOLDIER: Lucian is a warrior who has sworn to never lift a sword again.

THE SERVANT: Vespir is a dragon trainer whose skills alone will keep her in the game.

THE THIEF: Ajax knows that nothing is free–he must take what he wants.

THE MURDERER: Hyperia was born to rule and will stop at nothing to take her throne


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.
