Joust (The Dragon Jousters #1) by Mercedes Lackey | Epic Fantasy | Book Review

Mulluane | 3:30 PM | 7 Comments so far

For the first time ever, national best-selling legend Mercedes Lackey draws from her extensive knowledge of animals-and her professional background as an avian expert-to create something truly special...

The most exciting, authentic and believable portrayal of dragons ever imagined.

It is a richly conceived, fully realized vision, inspired by the culture of ancient Egypt, the legends of Atlantis-and the science of animal behavior and biology. This is how dragons would live, breed, hatch, hunt, and bond.

The first book in this thrilling new series introduces readers to a young slave who dreams of becoming a Jouster-one of the few warriors who can actually ride a flying dragon. And so, in secret, he begins to raise his own dragon.

Joust (Dragon Jousters, #1)

♥ Mini Review ♥
Dragon Jousters is a must read for every dragon fan. It has everything. Dragons, dragonriders, coming of age, sympathetic characters, interesting worldbuilding, friendship and hope. This is the type of fantasy that, as a teen, made me fall head over heels in love with the genre.
