Kira has led a sheltered life, brought up by her widowed father, whom she adores. When he is arrested and imprisoned for a murder he allegedly committed 18 years before, she is devastated. So when she overhears an ex-student of her father’s planning to visit the prison, Kira decides to go, too. However, the student – Arun – is not who she thinks he is, and she soon learns that her father has not always been the man of integrity she has known for fifteen years.

Caught in a rebellion against the Lord High Councillor who would return the country to Wizard Rule, Kira finds that there is one more lesson she has to learn – about herself. Success depends on her, but is she willing to make the sacrifice it will require?

“You must go to the dragon. You must leave tonight.”

Before she even hears the words, Kaeldra already knows what she must do. She must search out the mother dragon whose draclings have just hatched and somehow get some of her precious milk. It’s the only way to save her foster-sister’s life. Kaeldra would rather not go. It’s much too terriffying, much too dangerous. But Kaeldra knows that she’s the only one who can do it. For she is the only one who can actually communicate with dragons.

But little does Kaeldra know what she’s getting into. She’s about to begin a journey that will entwine her fate with that of three little draclings and one would-be dragonslayer. A journey the will become a struggle for life.

Blue Mondays (3): Inheritance by Christopher Paolini

Blue Mondays

Monday mornings are the toughest mornings. Knowing the weekend is over and you’ll have to go to school or work again… But here is my solution: Blue Mondays!  Every Monday I will pick an awesome book, which I hope will make the week almost bearable for you. Cause reading it will make you forget about everything else! And before you know it, weekend has started once again ^^
Inheritence by Christopher Paolini

Not so very long ago, Eragon—Shadeslayer, Dragon Rider—was nothing more than a poor farm boy, and his dragon, Saphira, only a blue stone in the forest. Now the fate of an entire civilization rests on their shoulders.

Long months of training and battle have brought victories and hope, but they have also brought heartbreaking loss. And still, the real battle lies ahead: they must confront Galbatorix. When they do, they will have to be strong enough to defeat him. And if they cannot, no one can. There will be no second chances.

The Rider and his dragon have come further than anyone dared to hope. But can they topple the evil king and restore justice to Alagaësia? And if so, at what cost?

Today, on my way to school, I was thinking about all the things I have to this week and was very happy that at least my site was up to date. Till the moment I realised today was already Tuesday and I didn’t post a Blue Monday yesterday… *slaps face* How could I forget to do that? Oh well, at least it isn’t already Friday and the book I planned to post (at least I already thought about that ^^) would be published today. Does someone already know which book I’m talking about? Okay the green cover kinda betrays it, of course I’m talking about Inheritance by Christopher Paolini!

I’ll probably have to wait a while before I’ll be able to read it. I plan to get the Dutch version of this book, just like the other books I have, and that one isn’t published yet. Moreover I’ve put it on my holidays wish list. But if I don’t receive it then, I’ll go asap to the nearest book store and buy it. And afterwards read the last chapter first. Yes, I’m one of those people who can’t stand the tension and ignorance ;). But please don’t tell me spoilers, I wanna read it myself ^^I’ve loved this series from the first book and although I’m sad there won’t be a next one I so hope this book won’t disappoint me ^^

Blue Mondays (1): Flying Blind by Deborah Cooke

Blue Mondays

Monday mornings are the toughest mornings. Knowing the weekend is over and you’ll have to go to school or work again… But here is my solution: Blue Mondays!  Every Monday I will pick an awesome book, which I hope will make the week almost bearable for you. Cause reading it will make you forget about everything else! And before you know it, weekend has started once again ^^

Flying Blind by Deborah Cooke

The next generation of shape-shifting dragons from the popular author of the Dragonfire novels. 

Zoë Sorensson is perfectly normal, except she’s been told she’s destined for great things. Zoë’s the one female dragon shapeshifter of her kind. But Zoë is at the bottom of the class when it comes to being Pyr and her powers are AWOL, so she’s sent to a Pyr boot camp.

Zoë quickly realizes that she has to master her powers yesterday, because the Pyr are in danger and boot camp is a trap. The Mages want to eliminate all shifters and the Pyr are next in line-unless Zoë and her friends can work together and save their own kind.

To make it a little easier to go to school or work today and make it a little less sad that the weekend is already over, I’ve decided to post info about a new or interesting book every Monday. Oh and did you guys know that in the Dutch language a blue Monday means something entirely different? In Dutch it means doing something for a really short time, instead of it being a depressing day.

And now about the book: Nice cover isn’t it? I loved the Dragonfire novels, full of handsome dragons who protected humankind. Zoë is already a character in the Dragonfire novels, so I’m really curious about this book. The reason I’m hesitating is that the Wyvern isn’t supposed to fall in love with someone. (At least that was the story in the Dragonfire novels). Though I like my YA with some romance, so can anyone tell me if I can expect something?

HOW CAN ONE GIRL SAVE AN ENTIRE WORLD?

To the nobles who live in Benden Weyr, Lessa is nothing but a ragged kitchen girl. For most of her life she has survived by serving those who betrayed her father and took over his lands. Now the time has come for Lessa to shed her disguise—and take back her stolen birthright.

But everything changes when she meets a queen dragon. The bond they share will be deep and last forever. It will protect them when, for the first time in centuries, Lessa’s world is threatened by Thread, an evil substance that falls like rain and destroys everything it touches. Dragons and their Riders once protected the planet from Thread, but there are very few of them left these days. Now brave Lessa must risk her life, and the life of her beloved dragon, to save her beautiful world. . . .
