Title: Moth and Spark
Author: Anne Leonard
Year Published: 2014
Narrator: Christian Coulson
Audiobook Length: 14 hours 10 minutes
Synopsis: Prince Corin has been chosen to free the dragons from their bondage to the Empire, but dragons aren’t big on directions. They have given him some of their power, but none of their knowledge. No one, not the dragons nor their riders, is even sure what keeps the dragons in the Empire’s control.
Tam, sensible daughter of a well-respected doctor, had no idea before she arrived in the capital that she is a Seer, gifted with visions. When the two run into each other (quite literally) in the library, sparks fly and Corin impulsively asks Tam to dinner. But it’s not all happily ever after. Never mind that the prince isn’t allowed to marry a commoner: war is coming to Caithen.
Torn between Corin’s quest to free the dragons and his duty to his country, the lovers must both figure out how to master their powers in order to save Caithen. With a little help from a village of secret wizards and a rogue dragonrider, they just might pull it off.
The Sword and Laser Author Interview with Anne Leonard
Why?: I first heard of this novel from the Sword and Laser bookclub's author spotlight episode. It sounded really interesting with dragons and intrigue. When i was looking for my next audiobook on audible I saw this one and had to get it. I've been listening to mostly older books on audiobook so I'm excited for a book that was published this year.
Expectations: I'm expecting a fun fantasy novel that takes an inetresting take on dragons. I'm also expecting a court intrigue kind of story with a little bit of romance. I am hoping for some modern themes.
Judging a book by its cover: This cover looks cool. It leads me to ask so many questions. I'm intrigued to see what the moth and spark are referencing.
