The Dragon Tamer by Ava Richardson

While I like books like The One Thing, I had to return to my fiction novels. As usual, I have no idea how I found The Dragon Tamer. I had it on my Kindle and so I decided to start it. And oh my, am I glad I did.

A quote from The Dragon Tamer by Ava Richardson

Kaelan Younger is a peasant girl (although I guess it should be young woman), who lives with her grandmother and mother in Gladsheim. All of them are healers, but Kaelan’s mother is very sick. Kaelan has to visit the markets to sell their eggs and herbs to get money to heal her mom.

A quote from The Dragon Tamer by Ava Richardson

Lasaro Afkarr is the youngest child of the Queen of Alveria. He’s also the only one who has yet to transform into a dragon. Normally this wouldn’t be an issue, but he can’t be named the crown prince unless he’s a dragon. He strikes a deal with his mother that he will attend the Akademy and hopefully be able to transform there.

Brief Summary (while trying not to give everything away)

In The Dragon Tamer, Kaelan discovers that her father is a dragon. Not only a dragon, but the most infamous one in Alveria. Because she is of dragon blood, she can attend the Akademy. While on the way there, she is cornered by two dragons who want to eat her.

Fortunately for her, riding along the way is Prince Lasaro. Lasaro sees her in trouble and knows he’s too far away to help. But he transforms into his dragon finally. What else happens? Well, read the book to see!


I absolutely loved this book. At first, I was tentative, but the story totally drew me in. The Dragon Tamer is reminiscent of the style of The Selection by Kiera Cass. At least that’s the book I think of most when trying to find one that it is like. This one is available on Kindle Unlimited.

And in case you hadn’t figured it out, my plan for 2021 is to write a blog post for each book I read. Last year, I read 150 books. We’ll see how I do this year.
