Will I buy the second one? Maybe. I'm a little squeamish due to two remarks at the end that seem to say, "The second book is going to be about a bad guy doing creepy mental torture", but maybe I'm misreading it. (I had put down MCA Hogarth's "Even the Wingless" for similar reasons despite liking the writing style and setting.) I can definitely recommend this volume though.
Dragon’s Price is the fast-paced and fairly short first book to the Rise of the Horned Serpent series. The writing is polished and flows well, and the book is action-packed - dropping the reader directly into a battle on an airship on the first page. The pace keeps the story engaging throughout, although it never feels terribly deep and we don’t get a lot of history or development of our characters. This is sky pirates versus dragons, and is primarily a fun, fast, fantasy adventure.
There isn’t a ton of worldbuilding fleshed out here, but there are hints of some very interesting history that I expect will be explored further in sequels. There are airships, cuddly giant spiders, sky-pirates, a dragon empire of the past, and elemental crystal-powered weapons, as well as some interesting mythologies of old gods. Much of the worldbuilding is presented to the reader via epigraphs at the beginning of chapters. I feel epigraphs can be risky as they can threaten to break a reader’s immersion or can feel a bit like an infodump, but I enjoyed the majority of these, and found them to be believable parts of the story’s world.
Ishe and Yaki are twin sisters of the legendary sky pirate Madria, known as the Silver Fox. Ishe, called the Rhino, has been trained to be a fighter and a pirate like her mother. Yaki, called the Flower, has been set aside, kept safe and whole, and trained to be desirable in order to make a profitable marriage. When a full-grown dragon attacks the ship on their way to the city, all plans are off, and the sisters are thrown into a situation neither were trained for when they are captured by the dragon, Yaz-noth.
Readers looking for a quick, fun adventure should check this one out. If you’re looking for intelligent dragons a bit different from the usual, you’ll be particularly interested in Yaz-noth, I think.
4/5, Dragon’s Price is a well-written and engaging story. Though the characters don’t get a ton of depth or development in this first book, the action keeps the reader interested and invested. Overall a very enjoyable read.
