Seraphina meets Red Rising in a debut young adult fantasy that's full of rivalry, romance . . . and dragons. The brutal revolution that overthrew the Dragonlords may have orphaned Annie and Lee, but it's brought new hope to their city. Now anyone--including the lowborn--can have wealth, an education, and even test into the governing class of dragonriders. Aristocratic by birth and with his identity concealed, Lee's confidence and air of power have made him a rising star in the very regime that slaughtered his family. Annie, a former serf, is as bold a rider as they come--in the air. On the ground, she struggles with self-doubt. Now, after seven years of friendship, Annie and Lee are rivals for the top position in the city's fleet. All the riders have been preparing to lead their people into the future, yet no one is ready when survivors from the Dragonlord families resurface with dragons of their own, bent on reclaiming the city. With war looming and their relationship growing, Annie and Lee will both have to confront wavering loyalties. Lee will be forced to choose between killing the only family he has left, or betraying everything he's come to believe in, while Annie will have to decide whether to protect the boy she loves . . . or step up to be the champion her city needs.

Finished my first book for the #Readathon! And what a great book it ended up being! I was only mildly interested in this ARC at first because anything with dragons piques my interest, but Fireborne ended up having so much more to offer! The world-building in this story is phenomenal and I love the way the author was so clearly inspired by classics and Latin. I‘ll definitely be following up with this series! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Action-packed, triumphant, engaging, fascinating.

Fireborne‘s a novel destined to become a classic, the plot centers around two characters. The revolution involved dragons that belonged to a specialized few, after the revolution that changed. The dragon rider‘s became based upon a merit-based system for all people, that must be proven from tournaments. The two main characters Lee, and Annie are dragon riders, with one of their identities hidden.

chaoticgoodhufflepuff That sounds awesome! 1mo

I absolutely loved this first installment in a new dragon-based YA fantasy series. It reminds me a lot of a less wordy Game of Thrones, but with more dragons. The narrator changes between 2 dragon-riding orphans, Lee and Annie. My favorite aspect of this book so far though is the history and politics of the world. I definitely recommend this first book in the Aurelian Cycle series to anyone who enjoys this genre. In stores today 10/15/19. 🐲🐉

Fireborne has been described as Game of Thrones meets Red Rising. Sounds awesome, right?! Okay, maybe it sounds awesome to you but I‘m not familiar with either of those stories! 😬 I‘m not a huge fantasy reader but I‘ve been trying to find storylines that appeal to me.

You can get this book for just $9.99 plus tax when you sign up for BOTM YA by using the code PSL5 at checkout! http://book-of-the-month.ixmz.net/GkO9E

DGRachel As a fan of both, it does sound awesome, but I‘m skeptical of the comparison. 1mo
Butterflyamore @DGRachel I‘ll have nothing to go on in the end, I guess. It will be interesting to see what other people who do love both end up thinking of this. 1mo

I‘m of two minds about this YA dystopian fantasy.

First the pros: it‘s well written, features wonderful world-building and portrays strong male and female protagonists in Lee (17) and Annie (16)...we are able to hear both their perspectives as told in alternating chapters. And I especially enjoyed how the bonds were forged between humans and their dragons (and how strong they become).

But I felt that it was too drawn out, lagged in places 🔽🔽

robinb and could‘ve been much tighter than 400+ pages. There was also a lot of political intrigue here, between an old regime ruled by a triarchy of dragonlords and a post-revolution government headed by a First Protector. The author notes that she based some of her political structure on Plato‘s Republic and Virgil‘s Aeneid, and while I‘m not very familiar with these works, I will say that I became somewhat frustrated with how similarly 🔽🔽 2mo
robinb power-hungry they both were. The class system actually reminded me a bit of the Divergent series. One other thing that irritated me was the romance here. While Annie & Lee share a deep and abiding bond, there is an additional third party that just served to confuse me. TBH, I wanted to throttle Lee more than a few times for behavior that seemed out of character to me in this triangle. 🔽🔽 (edited) 2mo
robinb It ended with a bit of a cliffhanger, and as I see that there will be at least two more, yes, I‘ll probably add them to my TBR. 😊 3.75/5⭐️

Thanks to #BookishFirst!

This was an amazing book. I received this #arc from #NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Dragons and politics, love and honour. I recommend this book to all that have a dream of flying and who can empathise with the struggle of doing what is right when everything is falling down around you.
