Fans of Julie Kagawa’s Talon and Renee Ahdieh’s The Wrath and the Dawn will devour this action-packed fantasy adventure about a girl who chooses to surrender herself to a deadly dragon rather than marry an enemy prince.
When two warring kingdoms unified against a deadly menace laying waste to both their lands, they had to make a choice: vow to marry their heirs to one another, or forfeit their lives to the dragon.
Centuries later, everyone expects the sheltered princess Sorrowlynn to choose the barbarian prince over the fire-breathing beast—everyone, that is, except Sorrow, who is determined to control her own destiny or die trying.
As she is lowered into the dragon’s chamber, she assumes her life is over until Golmarr, the young prince she just spurned, follows her with the hopes of being her hero and slaying the dragon. But the dragon has a different plan. . . .
If the dragon wins, it will be freed from the spell that has bound it to the cave for centuries. If Sorrow or Golmarr vanquish the dragon, the victor will gain its treasure and escape the cave beneath the mountain. But what exactly is the dragon hiding?
There are no safe havens for Sorrow or Golmarr—not even with each other—and the stakes couldn’t be higher as they risk everything to protect their kingdom.
The Dragon's Price completely surpassed my expectations. It is truly a mix of The Wrath of the Dawn and Talon, both are one of my favorite series ever. I can't stop thinking about it!!
The plot is true to the summary. Sorrowlynn choses to face the dragon rather than marry a barbarian prince. But we soon discover that everything is not what it seems. The real treasure is not anything Sorrowlynn and Golmarr ever expected. Once the truth is discovered, there are more who would kill to obtain the truth which threatens the existence of the kingdom.
The world building was phenomenal. I loved the differences between the two kingdoms and the several villages surrounding. The idea of transference was something new for me but I enjoyed the idea throughout the novel.
I need book 2. I need more of Sorrowlynn and Golmarr. They are so sweet and their relationship is true and meaningful. I highly recommend this book if you love dragons, a high fantasy world, and a mystery that ensnares two kingdoms.
Overall I would give The Dragon's Price 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
