From Father to Son (A Brothers Word uT a barbaric Antharian like Faodarans are taught to believe in fact he is kind and noble Sorrowlynn and Golmarr must face the fire dragon or die tryingOne of the things that sticks out the most to me is Sorrowlynn s character development from start to finish In the beginning she is a scared soft weak girl sorry She is terrified of the Mountain Binding and she doesn t know how to standp for herself Her parents hate her because her fate is to die by her owns hands She doesn t want to marry the heir of Anthar but she also doesn t want to be fed to the dragon And she certainly doesn t want to be trapped in a lonely miserable sheltered life with her parents who abhor herBut after she is lowered into the cave of the mountain things start to change She and Golmarr fight to stay alive and Sorrowlynn while still a weak soft girl slowly becomes stronger She is no longer a pampered scared princess she shows assertion and backbone and she stops cowering in fear when her and Golmarr s lives are in danger By the end of the book she is so much stronger both mentally and physically and she is ready to take on all the dragons in the world to find what she is looking for not going to spoil thatWhile this book is written exclusively in Sorrowlynn s first person POV Golmarr is easily as important to the story as Sorrowlynn Golmarr and Sorrowlynn interact a little bit before the Mountain Binding and there is mutual affection Golmarr goes after her in the mountain to protect her and slay the dragon for her Golmarr is such a sweetie He is honorable and completely selfless such a gentleman He is incredibly courageous and would have done almost anything to protect Sorrowlynn To me Golmarr steals the show and he is the character that the story most benefited from having I liked Sorrowlynn but I adored Golmarr He is a warrior a horse lord a prince and an honorable manThe fantasy world is nothing really new but the author does a good job of creating and describing all of the parts and pieces to the setting the history and the magic At first I was a little confused about why the Mountain Binding was necessary but the history of the spell and the fire dragon was explained in detail within the story There are six I think six kingdoms that are all at odds you know the deal and there are different dragons that are not at peace with humans The fire dragon is contained by the mountain and a spell shared by the Faodaran and Antharian people but there is also the glass dragon in the Glass Forest this dragon becomes important On that note we do get to Haunted (After Moonrise (After Moonrise (Connected to Possessed by PC Cast) - Book 2) understand why the series is called the Transference series That s really important in the story I don t want to say why though The dragons are NOT human friendly dragons and that is important too I don t want to get into too much detail in terms of the plot because things will get spoiler y in a hurry BUT I will say that Golmarr and Sorrowlynn are not trapped in the mountain with the fire dragon for the entire book In fact they re there for about half of the book The second half of the book is interesting to me though there is a lot of important development character plot romance whilender the mountain There is romance and it s sweet Golmarr is a sweetheart and Sorrowlynn is a kitten with claws Their personalities mesh well together Sorrowlynn clearly is no docile girl despite seeming weak and Golmarr is a fierce yet kind warrior prince The romance develops pretty ickly but *the physical side of things is very slow burn There were a lot of swoony moments in *physical side of things is very slow burn There were a lot of swoony moments in second half of the book I like how honest and open with each other the pair was Also no love triangle Something I like mention in all of my reviews if there is a love triangle or notThe climax is something that you see coming and there was a little bit of dread mixed into my anticipation of the climax The ending #is a bit cruel but also hopeful at the same time This #a bit cruel but also hopeful at the same time This is part of a trilogy so I nderstand why the book ended the way it did It isn t a permanently cruel ending so I m mostly fine with it It could have been worseOverall I liked the book There were some things that I didn t love which I ll discuss below What I Did Not LikeOne of the first things I noticed was that there is some seriously cheesy dialogue in this book It wasn t all of the dialogue all of the time but you notice it when you see it and it s cringe worthy I was a little surprised by how much cheesy dialogue there was This is the author s fourth book but the writing felt like that of a debut author though that s not A Full House uite fair of me to say because some debut authors have BEAUTIFUL writing Stephanie Garber for example I also didn t love the ending as I mentioned above I m not going to fuss over it because I know it s not permanent but still it was a little bittersweet You can t see me but I m pouting right now If the author messesp I m going to be very pset Ugh trilogiesWould I Recommend ItYes and no I have a lovehate relationship with YA trilogies YA trilogies are the worst because there are cliffhangers and messy plots and sometimes even messy romances and everything drags out over three books which could be three or years or waiting In this book s case I do highly recommend this book This series though I might
wait to binge read the books when they all publish This to binge read the books when they all publish This ends on a cliffhanger and I imagine book two will as well I really do not like YA trilogies anyBut like I said I do recommend this book It was great and it felt fairly short so it was a ick read Plus evil dragons We find a lot of good dragons in YA literature but not necessarily bad ones I thought that was a cool aspectRating4 stars I am definitely looking forward to reading from this series In book two I would like to see evil dragons history on the dragon s magic and a looooot kissing between Golmarr and Sorrowlynn Thank you Random House Children s for sending me an ARC of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review These days that test you to your core they will refine you beat out your weaknesses and turn you into the best version of yoursel.

BOOK GIVEAWAY ENTER HEREHey guys I m doing a book giveaway hardback enter below stars I loved the story magic system with the dragons I kinda liked the love story even though it was instalove But I have some concernsFirst and foremost some of the descriptions bothered me a little and I m interested to hear what other reviewers make of this because I m still learning Basically there are two main kingdoms the one that our heroine Sorrowlyn is from predominately pale skinned At first she s stuck in their ways and beliefs thinking the other kingdom is just barbarians they are described as bronze skinned However as the story progresses Sorrowlyn comes to realize that she was taught wrong about the other kingdom that all her beliefs and preconceived notions are wrong and that her family and home kingdom are the ones that are horribly corrupt She ends p ashamed that she ever thought ill of the other kingdom and view spoilerends The Midwifes Glass Slipper / Best for the Baby up joining them and turning her back on her family She realizes that the other kingdom is how all kingdoms should be they are shown as fairlovingetc later on hide spoiler Ok so not going to lie I m not a big fan of the cover but PLEASE don t let that stop you from reading this AMAZING book This story has it all Dragons battles romance oh man the romance swoons and an amazing cast of characters I can t believe how hard I fell for this story I need book 2 now A fantasy YA trilogy about the transformation of a sheltered princess who chooses death by dragon instead of a forced marriage to a rival horse lord and endsp vanuishing the fire breather absorbing his power and incurring the wrath of his fellow dragonsholy SHIT I feel nothingNothing for the characters nothing for the romance nothing for the story A little something for the writing but that s about itThis is your typical commercial fantasy YA book The heroine is A Natural Father uniue because there s this whole prophecy about herYou just know she s going to be the special one even though she s not that intelligent or skilled at much of anythingI mean if she were really intelligent she wouldn t have chosen to die instead of marrying a forty year old barbaric manI get it he s not the man of your dreams Plus he s married already I really do get it But girl you didn t think about anyone else but your little self You know this tradition is necessary to keep the two kingdoms in good terms yet you care not an ounce about thatBut hey we know that from the start since it s clearly stated in the blurb What is not stated though is that the love interest is one of the main reasons why she decides to dieHe toyed with her terrifying her with speculation of all the bad things the wife of the man she s supposed to marry might do to her when in fact he wouldn t have married her in the end because those people are monogamous Stupid boy you saw she was scared and did nothing to ease her spirit So clearly I did not enjoy the romance between them It does have that insta love vibe also even considering the fact that they don t kissntil a good couple of chapters have passedAnd it really really isn t convincing Sorrow is pretty much a petty version of Rapunzel since she s not allowed to leave the
castle but whenbut when s obliged to wear a corset she says she never has before Okay so there never was a celebration at the castle before that she was supposed to attend wearing an abominably tight *corset i doubt itvery disappointed in this book *I doubt itVery disappointed in this book feel generous with my two stars DNF at 35%Blog Youtube Twitter Instagram Google Bloglovin Review posted on The Eater of Books blogThe Dragon s Price by Bethany WigginsBook One of the Transference seriesPublisher Crown Books for Young ReadersPublication Date February 21 2017Rating 4 starsSource ARC sent by the publisherSummary from GoodreadsFans of Julie Kagawa s Talon and Renee Ahdieh s The Wrath and the Dawn will devour this action packed fantasy adventure about a girl who chooses to surrender herself to a deadly dragon rather than marry an enemy princeWhen two warring kingdoms A Doctors Vow unified against a deadly menace laying waste to both their lands they had to make a choice vow to marry their heirs to one another or forfeit their lives to the dragonCenturies later everyone expects the sheltered princess Sorrowlynn to choose the barbarian prince over the fire breathing beast everyone that is except Sorrow who is determined to control her own destiny or die tryingAs she is lowered into the dragon s chamber she assumes her life is overntil Golmarr the young prince she just spurned follows her with the hopes of being her hero and slaying the dragon But the dragon has a different plan If the dragon wins it will be freed from the spell that has bound it to the cave for centuries If Sorrow or Golmarr vanuish the dragon the victor will gain its treasure and escape the cave beneath the mountain But what exactly is the dragon hidingThere are no safe havens for Sorrow or Golmarr not even with each other and the stakes couldn t be higher as they risk everything to protect their kingdomWhat I LikedThe Dragon s Price is the first novel by Bethany Wiggins that I ve read I ve seen her other Young Adult novels but they never caught my eye like this book I m a huge fan of YA fantasy especially any fantasy dealing with dragons Good dragons bad dragons I don t care This novel is the first of a trilogy and it follows the story of Princess SorrowlynnPrincess Sorrowlynn is the fourth and last daughter of the king and een of Faodara The Faodaran princesses are reuired to sacrifice themselves to keep an ancient spell at bay The spell holds the fire dragon in the mountain the sacrifice is to marry the heir of the throne of Anthar or be fed to the dragon On the day of the Mountain Binding Sorrowlynn shocks everyone
