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.

There really isn't much that THE DRAGON'S PRICE is lacking. I love the main character, Sorrowlynn. After so many years of being kept hidden and treated horribly by her mother and father, it took one ceremony/special event to help her break free from her hell. She was so brave. Instead of letting her past break her down, she chose freedom at all cost. Even if it meant her dying. Golmarr, Golmarr, Golmarr... phew! Talk about book boyfriends! This is one book boyfriend that I think all readers will fall in love with. I loved everything about him and his family.

The Dragon's Price is a unique read filled with plenty of surprises, non-stop action, and lots of magic!

My only issue with the story is that it was very predictable. I predicted the ending from the middle of the book. I wish it would have ended differently, but in the end I am happy that we get another story with these kick-ass characters!!

4 Stars!
