Goodreads Synopsis

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.

Dark Blue cover with red smoke coming from bottom left corner. 5 swords crossing in the middle with different cover handles (Gold, Purple, Green, Blue & Red) that are shaped as different dragons. “Win at all costs” quote at the top.

I absolutely loved House of Dragons! This book is incredibly written and was extremely gripping! I simply didn’t want to put this book down.

Firstly, I love the diverse range of characters we see in the book! Every character, even the side characters were very well written and fleshed out amazingly. The book follows 5 points of view and every single POV had it’s on personality and feel to it. They also all developed and grew really well throughout the book. I loved reading every POV even if I was rooting for some characters more than others!

I really liked how detailed the world building was and how much description went into the magic system. Of course there is still some mystery but I liked how much detail we got and it made sense for the story.

Overall, I really enjoyed House of Dragons & I can’t wait for book 2! I love how House of Dragons ended but it also ended on a bit of cliffhanger, so I’m super keen to see what comes next.
