Summary:


"To-Ho-Ne calls Mama 'Princess, '" Alijandra whispered. "If she's a princess, doesn't that make us princesses, too?" "We aren't princesses," Isabella whispered. "Princesses live in palaces, not...not here." "Here" is the unforgiving high desert in the Old West of an alternate Earth. Isabella-who is almost 13 years old-and her sister Alijandra-who is almost 8-scratch out a meager life with their parents. Their home is a shack deep in the lands of the Diheneh, the indigenous people, far from the family's former country of Ysparria. Isabella dimly remembers a better time, years before, when they were rich and respected because their father caught, tamed, and trained dragons for Ysparria's armies. But now their father is an outlaw who spends many weeks away from home on futile efforts at prospecting. Their mother, aided by the old native woman who raised her, struggles to grow food, earn money, and keep Isabella and Alijandra safe. Into their lives comes a small, wingless dragon from far away. Finding the dragon near death after a fight, the girls take it home and begin tending it back to health. Alijandra calls the dragon "Pearl," after its tiny white eyes. While Pearl heals, the family begins to learn where the dragon came from, as well as the strange and terrifying powers it possesses. As the family ponders what to do with Pearl, they learn that the hunt for the former dragontamer has intensified. At the same time, Pearl grows more and more compelled to complete the mysterious journey that brought her to these lonely lands.


My Thoughts:


I got this book from the author in exchange for a review. All the thoughts displayed here are mine!

I liked the book, I can't say that I didn't the world described was amazing, and author just knew everything about deserts and native americans while describing characters and the whole new world, but.... Yeah, unfortunately there is that ugly but, which means, the book was not mine, I was reading it, and everytime I really did feel that it was not mine. No doubtht I was super intrigued by the plot, who wouldn't be? Dragons... Just that word and I am super into the book. But I think George R.R. Martin, had a big influence on me anfter reading Song of Ice and Fire, and reading about his dragons, nothing can make me stop comparing everything to that. I know I am a really bad person saying that, but, I am really sorry. But I do...

I do think that fans of Eragon and Song of Ice and Fire won't be like totally thrilled by this book, but it will still be interesting for them to read. If you haven't read that books yet, don't, read first Kilgore's Dragontamer's Daughters series. There are only 2 books in it. Get sucked into the amazing world which Kilgore created just for you, readers. As for me, I have the second book to, and it's on my TBR list, I don't know when I will read it, but I definately will. And also, as a little surprise I would like to ask the author to give me the interview, if he agrees, and I so hope he agrees, I will post it here. So wish me luck. And Happy Reading, maybe while reading this book, you will find that that's the book you've been waiting for. I hope it will be like that. Enjoy! And don't forget to leave comments!!!
