A prince with a quest. A commoner with mysterious powers. And dragons that demand to be freed—at any cost.
They have given him some of their power, but none of their knowledge.

With a little help from a village of secret wizards and a rogue dragonrider, they just might pull it off. This year I am learning that there is a real art involved in an author selling me a happily ever after story in a world where things seldom ever end that way.
Sometimes I need something a bit lighter, a bit easier, and a little less dark to read. Moth and Spark is a debut novel by Anne Leonard. The cover art is gorgeous, and just hints at even more gorgeous things inside. Readers will enter this book knowing exactly what to expect, and for the most part, they will find all their expectations met.
Moth and Spark is one of those books that is mostly romance that happens to contain some fantasy. There are dragons, a sort of vague and undefined magic system, hints at a wider world with sprawling conflicts — you know, all the things good fantasy should contain. However, all of those things are rather nebulous. The wider world is alluded to, but never really painted in much detail.
I would have read this book for the cover alone, but then when I read that it was about dragons, love, and a prince with a quest…. Prince Corin has been picked by the dragons to free them from their bondage to the empire….

When she runs into Prince Corin, the last thing she expects from it is a dinner invitation. For a brief moment he is able to forget about his responsibilities and think only of the enchanting woman in front of him. This must be my year for difficult books to review!
For one, I really wanted to know more about their world. There were some other minor things that I found distracting and at times confusing but on the whole the biggest issue I had was with the under developed world. This was a stand alone book and I really liked that. In the literary world it seems like everything is a series now and sometimes I just want to read and book and be done with the story rather than perpetually waiting for the next installment.
So I liked that this was a stand alone but I think it could have been a little longer. Recruited by the Firekeepers, Prince Corin has been given a futile task—to free the dragons from their bondage to the Empire, though no one, not even the dragons or their riders, understand the bonds which hold them. Given their power, but none of the knowledge to use it, Corin is torn between his new quest and his royal duty to defend his country from the Sarian invasion. Before arriving in Caithen for Summer Court, Tam, the unassuming daughter of a well-respected doctor, has no idea she was born a Seer, someone gifted with visions.
When an attack on the capital forces the lovers to flee, Corin and Tam must figure out how to master their newly discovered powers in order to save Caithen and themselves. With the help from a village of secret wizards and a rogue dragonrider, they might just pull it off. Game of Thrones fans -- Diana Gabaldon fans: you're going to find this compelling and elegant!
