The Summer Dragon
The Summer Dragon: First Book of the Evertide | Todd Lockwood
13 posts | 9 read | 18 to read
The debut novel from the acclaimed illustrator--a high fantasy adventure featuring dragons and deadly politics. Maia and her family raise dragons for the political war machine. As she comes of age, she anticipates a dragon of her own to add to the stable of breeding parents. Her peaceful life is shattered when the Summer Dragon--one of the rare and mythical High Dragons--makes an appearance in her quiet valley. Political factions vie for control of the implied message, threatening her aspirations, her aerie, her entire way of life. The bond between dragons and their riders is deep and life-long, and Maia's desire for a dragon of her own to train, ride, fly, and love drives her to take a risk that puts her life at stake. She is swept into an adventure that pits her against the deathless Horrors, thralls of the enemy, and a faceless creature drawn from her fear. In her fight to preserve everything she knows and loves, she exposes a conspiracy, unearths an ancient civilization, and challenges her understanding of her world--and of herself.

Stellar day at Emerald City Comic Con! 🥳 This is just the book/comic haul (it was so hard to stay within budget!). I also bought some other things, got to meet one of my favorite artists, Karen Hallion (who‘s super nice), and had an amazing time people watching. Some of the cosplay costumes were incredible! So much to see & do. Although, I did miss Robin Hobb signing autographs. 😢

Leftcoastzen Wow, wonderful stuff! 10mo
wanderinglynn @vumblereads Have you watched the Netflix adaptation? 10mo
vumblereads Yes that‘s how I knew about it. I haven‘t read the book 😄 10mo

I'm also stoked to get to this one by Todd Lockwood. He signed it and sketched me a dragon while I watched! I might buy it for my iPad so I don't have to touch this gorgeous edition lmao!!!

(Don't mind the Funko Pop of BSG's Apollo. Richard Hatch signed it for me and I was all starry-eyed about my autographs that night. Still am...)

StaceyKondla @DragonAuthors - I just bought that book lasts week, partly because of the art and partly because of dragons 😁 And because Julie Czernada said the book is delightful! I'm hoping I get it to it before the end of September. I envy your original artwork! 3y
DragonAuthors @StaceyKondla We've seen the author/artist many years running at DragonCon. He's super nice and his art is stunning! He told us the book just came out this year and is already in its third printing! 3y
StaceyKondla @DragonAuthors - That is very cool! 3y

This has to be the best book I've read in a LOOONG time. There were tears. And now begins the wait for the next book.

About to give this first in a new series a shot. A young dragon keeper gets swept up in politics & battles for power. Adventure, danger, & evil enemies. Love the author's B&W illustrations & maps. "They were feeding the babies when the slaughter began."
