Hey! It's Kate (Nick's girlfriend). I am a huge fan of fantasy and have read so many great books involving dragons! I have immediate access and can lend you (if you haven't tried them already!!): Dragon Specific: Anne McCaffrey, The Dragonriders of Pern (if you haven't read Pern yet, drop everything!) Todd Lockwood, The Summer Dragon (very classics S&S) Margaret Weis, Spymaster (The Dragon Corsairs Book 1) (more dragon-historical-steampunk) T.A. White, Dragon-Ridden (I prefer her sci-fi, but this is fun and short) Mercedes Lackey, Joust (Dragon Jousters) (immediately after finishing McCaffrey, you gotta try Mercedes Lackey!! Though I think the Heralds of Valdemar are my favourite) Naomi Novik, His Majesty's Dragon (another dragon-historical-steampunk) Michelle Segara, The Chronicles of Elantra (Fantasy world with dragon emperors and magic tattoos.) Great! Fantasy in General: Robin Hobb, Assassin's Apprentice (a total classic) David Eddings, The Belgariad (I am going to go reread this now - David Eddings said "bah humbug, fantasy is full of tropes and that sucks - let me prove it by writing a book that has them all. aaaand everyone LOVED it. Haha) Garth Nix, Sabriel (I'm sure you've come across Garth Nix, but if not urban-fantasy necromancy for the win) Kristin Cashore, Graceling (Kristin Cashore does great things with teen S&S fantasy. GREAT THINGS!) Maria V. Snyder, Poison Study (Maria V. Snyder does great things with teen poison taster fantasy.) Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, Good Omens (This is coming out at the end of May with David Tennant as Crowley..and directed by Dr Who directors. Worth adoring) Tamora Pierce, The Alanna Chronicles (Tamora Pierce has a great long list of good teen fantasy. Stands the test of time) Robin McKinley, The Blue Sword (Beduin desert fantasy with magic and everything you didn't know you wanted) Trudi Canavan, The Magicians' Guild (A true classic, everyone has to read Trudi Canavan - the Magician's Guild was one of the first books my mum gave me when I graduated to adult fantasy). Juliet Marillier, Daughter of the Forest (Ancient Irish folk-tale fantasy - she was my writing queen for years) Elizabeth Moon, The Deed of Paksenarrion (The best book inspired by Tolkien ever. EVER!) Kristen Britain, The Green Rider (Great first book, but she goes off the rails by the fifth - it gets strange and boring) Mercedey's Lackey, The Heralds of Valdemar (so good. sooooo gooood) Ilona Andrews, Kate Daniels Series (the best urban fantasy ever. A post-magic apocalypse world experiencing waves of magic and technology. A mercenary with a hidden identity, sharp sharp sword, and monster dog. There's lots of violence, but it's not too adult!) Anne Bishop, The Others series (Anne Bishop does urban fantasy like no-one else. Alternative world!) Kelly St. Clare, Tainted Accords (A really interesting set of characters, it's a teen series - but it does contain with some violent themes) Jeniffer Estrep, Kill the Queen (.. I may have gotten a little excited about sharing books) Sharon Shinn, The Twelve Houses (just one more, it's a great fantasy series! trust me) I did not include sci-fi (do you like sci-fi?) because there're so many good sci-fi books too. Let me know if any appeal and I can lend them to you! (Some are kindle books, some physical, some pdfs.) Best Kate.
