Last week I was introduced to the Dragon School short novel series by Sarah K. L. Wilson. I read the first six books in two days! These short novels are about 150 pages long and have a complete plot arch. They also manage to end on a cliffhanger at the same time.
The first book follows the adventure of Amel, a crippled girl who decides to leave her family and become a dragon rider. She feels like a burden to her large family since she cannot help out with the farm chores, and no one will marry her. The Dragon School must accept anyone who wants to join as a dragon rider or as a servant.
When it comes time to choose her dragon, the dragon chooses her instead. Raolcan, the purple dragon, is the highlight of each book. A sassy dragon, who underneath all of his scales, truly cares for Amel.
I honestly love the world Sarah has created in this short novel series. I found myself cheering for Amel through the whole book. I actually laughed out loud at some of the things the dragon said.
Don't think just because Amel is in school this book doesn't have intense action packed scenes.
New "episodes" are released every 18 days and the latest one was released on the 30th. I'll be posting a review of the second book soon!
Dragon School Books:
The books are available on Kindle Unlimited or for $.99 each. They are well worth the price. :)

I love fantasy novels with a desert setting. There is an added edge of danger and a certain mysteriousness air created by the endless dunes or craggy mesas. These eight novels deliver epic stories and adventures.
