From childhood, Aerin-sol has been haunted by the story of her mother—a “witchwoman” who bewitched the king and then died in childbirth, leaving behind a newborn daughter and an heirless land. Uncertain of the past, Aerin decides to forge her own future by challenging the lashing tongues of the dragon’s fire. Aerin’s proficiency as “the Dragon-slayer” sets her on a quest for the stolen Crown of Damar, believed to be in the hands of rebellious northerners who threaten to destroy the Damarian people and their home forever.

    " I think I enjoyed this "prequel" to "The Blue Sword" even more than the first. McKinley has a nice touch with fantasy writing. She is becoming one of my favorite authors as I work my way through her oeuvre. "

    " This is my favorite book of all time. The action, the romance, everything was amazing and fantastically written. I've read and reread it countless times and it never, ever gets old. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Katie | 1/22/2014

    " This book was pretty fabulous. It had all the elements that go into making a truly great book: amazing (yet not too terribly intricate) plot, passionate yet real characters, along with a heroine who is terribly human and forced to overcome not only the epic heroic type obstacles, but ordinary obstacles as well, and just enough action and adventure to keep things interesting without going completely overboard. I cannot say enough good things about this book. It deserves every award and accolade that it received. "
