Keriya Nameless has no magical powers, a disability in the world of magic in which she lives. Despite being crippled, she’s recruited by the god, Shivnath, to save the last living dragon. Keriya leaps at the chance to prove her worth, though failure could mean the destruction of everything she holds dear. Dragon Speaker is the first installment of the Shadow War Saga series.
What I thought
Thank you to the author for providing me with a complementary copy of this in exchange for an honest review. This, in no way, had an effect on this review.
One of the things that impressed me the most with this book was that I could feel Elana’s passion and enthusiasm shining through her story. The thought of writing a high fantasy novel is so daunting to me, so I give major props to this author for not only writing one, but, in particular, one that holds so much imagination. The “epic quest” plotline is one that’s been done time and again, so it was nice to read a unique and refreshing take on the trope.
Dragon Speaker is one of the most promising fantasy debuts I’ve read in a while! It did seem a little confusing to me at times, but that could just be me. I was mostly just enjoying this read for being something so different and creative. If you enjoy high fantasy, especially when there’s dragons involved, you might consider checking out this read!
