(Free) ð The Dragonlord's Son õ eBook or E-pub free

Inspired by Plato s Republic and told from a dual point of view, the story is pitched as Aegon Targaryen and Hermione Granger with dragons I have no idea what that even means, but I gotta say I m intrigued lol. This book has gotten a lot of advanced buzz, and I have to say, I can see why.The telepathic dragon companion trope is pretty well worn by now, and Munda doesn t do much to add to it But if you like that trope, you re going to be okay with the eggs, impression, shared emotional states with dragons, etc Munda does a great job with it.Where this book takes a left turn, I thought, was with the political situation The story sort of begins ten years after an especially bloody revolution, overthrowing the dragon lords who were this world s nobles They kept the dragons to themselves, and of course they had everything Including the leisure time for poetry The rest of the world scrabbled to support them.Until the revolution that overthrew them, and nearly stamped them out by killing all the dragon lords down the the smallest kid But total annihilation is difficult than it looks when it s hand to hand slaughter, and a few got away, or were spared including one of our protagonists, Lee, who was born Leo, his father an important dragon lord.I said Sort of above because we get snippets of the revolution, and Lee s story, along with Annie s She is our secondary protagonist, once a serf As a serf she would never have been permitted near a dragon, but now she and Lee are dragon riders, for the revolution made it possible for commoners to test for dragon riding.Early on, we get a glimpse of a past event, an execution Lee and Annie, tight friends, both misunderstood the other s reaction and when the reader realizes it, the game alters Nothing is predictable any Moral dilemmas, with huge emotional freight attached, lie like landmines everywhere There are no easy choices in this world.I suspect Munda is a visual writer, as she paints in the complexities of character emotions through subtle observation of body language That was a real pleasure to read she avoids the easy but overused LED lights in eyes for emotional conveyance his eyes gleamed smoldered flashed shot flames, fire, ice, and daggers, blah de blah That and the difficult choices, plus the twists in the backstory that you think you know, add up to a real page turner.Tne climax is breathtaking, excruciating, exhilarating by turns There is an exquisite balance between resolution and hints of what is to come to really make me eager to see what s next.Wow Copy provided by NetGalley 8 19

s Son FireborneNot sure, if which I prefer but it s fine I just want a synopsis soon the story is pitched as Aegon Targaryen and Hermione Granger with dragons Like, I understand what all of those words mean separately But collectively, I have no idea what to expect But hopefully, it means cool dragons and kickass characters lol pitched as Aegon Targaryen and Hermione Granger with dragons, set in the aftermath of a bloody revolution what does this like mean, though Rosaria Munda s Fireborne is an upcoming fall 2019 release that I hadn t heard much about Having spent much of my time wedding planning over the past 8 months, the following is what I knew it s fantasy, said to be a mix of Rachel Hartman s Seraphina and Pierce Brown s Red Rising, and Munda was inspired by the Aeneid and the Republic I m always down for fantasy I haven t read Seraphina, but I did read Red Rising and felt iffy about it and I could barely get through the Aeneid and the Republic in college I didn t have high hopes of enjoying Fireborne, but I kept my mind open and unassuming.And, man, I m glad I went in suspending hopes of any kind Fireborne hit every need of mine when it comes to a fantasy story Suspense that had me wondering what was going to happen, because I knew way than all the characters, and the possible reveals had me on edge Seriously, I think I was sweating a few times when the stakes were life and death serious And what made it intense was how the characters different motivations played into what was known I was practically skimming the pages through a couple chapters because I needed to know what happened to resolve a certain situation or two Tension between characters that continuously changes and morphs as new developments emerge especially when the tension is between the two main perspectives and there is a love and fondness between the two, but the stakes are high and they each have polarizing motivations Not to mention, the constant romantic tension is further complicated by attractions to other people once in a while From the very start the romantic tension had me rooting for one pair to end up together, then another, and then it got all mixed to the point I gave up and sat back to instead enjoy watching it unfold Characters that crawl into your heart and feel real enough to exist You can see the flaws of the society they inhabit, and you can see the flaws of the former regime that their current society came from, so you see where everyone stands in the grand scheme of ideologies But and this is a heavy but, somber and realizing it all comes down to I, the reader, understands where they all come from It isn t black and white as to who is right and just Their world is very gray, because every character has their reasons and those reasons make sense even as they are in opposition to one another Not to mention, the side characters were full of life as well and I also loved them Actually, I loved some of them right away Overall, Munda is amazing with fleshing out all levels of characters and bringing them to life The world building, including the tensions between nations, was fantastic I see exactly what Munda means when she says the Aeneid and the Republic inspired her The same level of political and social exploration happens, but definitely in a manner that was engaging for myself And the exploration of the political and social aspects created an extra depth of reflection for myself that I feel I don t get with some other books fantasy or not, just books in general I m not saying that other books don t set out with a purpose intended for the real world at large I am, however, saying that this book had me contemplating the grayness of my own world The world isn t black and white, and far too often people myself included try to filter the world into that dichotomy This book is an enjoyable, albeit sobering, reminder that people need to look beyond themselves and from another person s perspective Brief digression that might be a takeaway all my own from how the perspectives and sides of conflict are in the book, so this might not be something the author intended nor something other readers may feel the same about I tend to analyze deeply, so this is something I saw and it resonates within me Second brief digression I just learned that Munda studied political theory and, I swear, it shows but in an amazing way, because only someone educated in political theory could pull off the complex politics of this story and nail it like Munda does And, of course, the writing was phenomenal Aside from the reason listed above, I would say half of the reason that I adore this book is the writing itself It s refreshing There is always something actively occurring, even if it is a flashback to better inform the characters present situations You aren t left waiting for what s next because Munda is always giving you something new right away But she does balance it with internal reflections that accentuate and enhance, because those moments allow us to be closer to the characters and better understand their drives She also does harken back to the Aeneid and Republic in some ways, glorifying their ancient poetry and texts that are oh so similar to the Aeneid and the Republic Be sure to keep tissues nearby as you venture into Fireborne Surprisingly, there are quite a few emotional moments as you follow the characters hardships and see how their worlds fell apart and came back together. was inspired by Plato s Republic Told from a dual point of view, the story is pitched as Aegon Targaryen and Hermione Granger with dragons, This is the most OUTRAGEOUS sentence I have ever read. releases 15 Oct 2019 This is a fantasy series opener about dragons that appears to be getting a lot of hype Now, I
