Title: Frostwing: Dragonbond (Book one of the Frostwing Quadrilogy)
Author: Morgan Lee Clasper
Taming dragons is a death wish—but that won’t stop her.
Ava Frostborn is the daughter of a wealthy coal-family, tasked with running the fires which keep their isolated cities alive. She knows she’ll soon follow in her family’s footsteps, even though she hates the way her father exploits the slums.
But when a trip to a neighbouring city goes horribly wrong, Ava finds herself lost and alone in an inhospitable frozen wilderness—and she soon discovers there are far bigger threats out there than bandits and storms.
The old tales of dragons are real.
Enthralled by the dangerous beasts, Ava becomes determined to tame one. But few can form a Dragonbond. Only those with strong enough magic can hope to do it—and Ava’s magic is weak.
And when her home becomes the target of bloodthirsty bandits, she realizes she’d better learn fast…

Ava’s job is simple. She’s responsible for keeping the fires going, providing warmth in a very cold world. During a trip to a neighboring village, chaos ensues, and she’s lost in the wild. It’s there that she learns the stories of dragons are true. The only problem is that her magic isn’t strong enough yet to tame one. Determined to pull it off and desperate to save her family from a looming threat, she’s determined to bond with a dragon, no matter what it takes.
I think the most prominent feature of this author’s work is the ability to leave a picture in your mind. Every scene, every character, every DRAGON was described with such beautiful clarity. The book was a little slow in the beginning, plot-wise, but midway through the story, the book found its stride, making the second half of the book easier to devour than the first. There was some clean romance in this book too, though I wasn’t crazy about Ava’s choice in romantic interests.
All in all, a solid YA fantasy with some adventure and romance.
