Bibliotheca Draconis

Post by Raiden » July 8th, 2016, 7:56 pm

So, I didn't knew whether I should put it here, or in poetry and writing, but I think here is better.
Also, just a warning beforehand: This list is not complete and will most likely never be.

Since the age of dragons seems to dawn again, at least in the form of books, I think it would be a good idea to collect all the (good) books concerning dragons that you can think of! Be it novels, or more "serious" works. I'll then try and compile it all here in one big list, sorted by book type and author alphabetically.

Fantasy Novels:

D'Lacey, Chris
The Last Dragon Chronicles
- The Fire Within
- Icefire
- Fire Star
- The Fire Eternal
- Dark Fire
- Fire World
- The Fire Ascending

The Erth Dragons

Knight, E.E.
Age of Fire
- Dragon Champion
- Dragon Avenger
- Dragon Outcast
- Dragon Strike
- Dragon Rule
- Dragon Fate

Künzel, Felix

*drools at the list*

OMG you have some awesome titles on there!

But I think you could add a few ;) Typing from memory so excuse me if I only list series names or a few titles.

E.E. Knight's 'Age of Fire' saga is a must!
The first three books are told from the viewpoint of three dragonets as they grow up living separate lives, and the following books are told from when they meet up as adults.

Any of Anne McCaffrey's 'Pern' series, though my faves are Dragonflight and White Dragon.

And slightly younger but still enjoyable, Tui T. Sutherland's 'Wings of Fire' series.

A collection of dragon short stories called 'The Dragon Book' by Jack Dann.

And, of course, 'The Book of Dragons', by Ciruelo.

I'll add more when I remember them ;p

Edited the list, thanks Sil!

Also, the Age of fire looks really interesting and I've never heard of them... maybe I should give them a shot.

Might want to update the Wings of Fire list since now we have two more books and Darkstalker: Legends. :P

This is only really a single book, but Tooth and Claw by Jo Walton was a pretty good one, if a bit unusual for a dragon-centered story. Basically the way I could sum it up as is a Victorian-era story where all the humans have been replaced with dragons and some of the customs have been changed to fit into it. It tells the story of five (?) dragon siblings and they each basically have their own story going on, although some of them are more heavily emphasized than others.

'Tooth and Claw'...

Waaaait, wasn't that the book billed as 'the dragon version of *Pride and Prejudice*?'

Still want to read that.

Sooo many dragon books still out there to be discovered! :D

Yea I got some, lads.

Chris D'lacey is starting a new series called "The Erth Dragons" (Earth Dragons basically lol)
https://erthdragons.wordpress.com/

I read the first one which was The Wearle, it was rather quite an interesting read. The sequel should be releasing soon, its known as Dark Wyng. Probably end of this year.


Theres another book series known as Talon. By Julie Kagawa. Its pretty much about dragons trying to live a normal life in disguise but are actually part of an organization that plans to wipe out them. While humans have their own secret yadda yadda

https://www.goodreads.com/series/96817-talon

so far, 3 books are only out, Talon, Rogue and Soldier. Legion and Untitled tba.

Updated the list, it's growing faster then I anticipated :D
Also thanks Tera, I REALLY need to get my hands on that book. Absolutely adored The last dragon Chronicles, if the new series is anywhere near as good, I have to read it.
.... so many books to read....

Also, how come there are just SO MANY female fantasy authors writing about dragons?

Yes, it was. x3 Although I've never read Pride and Prejudice myself so I can't really say how accurate that is.
I really should try and read some of these books here. It's been a while since I've had a good series to read (I'm currently following Wings of Fire and that's about it right now).

Another addition to the list of dragon books is the "Dragon Delasangre" series by Alan F. Troop.

1. The Dragon Delasangre
2. Dragon Moon
3. The Seadragon's Daughter
4. A Host of Dragons

I've read the entire series and while the first and second are an original take on an old idea, the final two are not as good. Be warned that the series itself is quite graphic with a fair amount of draconic sex scenes and explicit violence.

Updated.
Also, this might be the best place to ask: Does anyone know about a book(series) about two half dragon brothers? One growing up in a cave, visibly halfdragon, while the otherone was a prince of sorts, locked up in a tower. The plot was something about an evil cult creating an army of half dragons and I really have forgotten almost everything about it, including the name. Does ANYONE know this series based on this confused description? I knew I read the first book, but I can't remember author nor title nor anything.
