As in title, respond with your favourite books with dragons as main or almost main characters.
Not quite main characters (and more a force of nature), but I'd recommend Marie Brennan's A Natural History of Dragons: A Memoir by Lady Trent.
Christopher Paolini's Inheritance series (Eragon, Eldest, Brisingr, and Inheritance) is alright.
J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit. Full stop.
Anne McCaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern is a great series. Easy reads, and very nice to see the dragons portrayed as helpful benefactors.
The Dragons of Requiem book franchise by Daniel Arenson (not exactly dragons per-se but people that can transform into dragons)
I have read Eragon, but i will look at natural history of dragons and pern. Thanks! Oh and I will look for requiem too!
There's a lot of Requiem books, I only have the first trilogy and a couple books from the following one (there's several trilogies, each is set at a different point in the timeline so they can all be read out of order without missing anything)
Daniel Arenson | USA Today Bestselling Author of Fantasy and Science Fiction
Thanks, sadly any of those Books arent available in my country... So i need to find a way to get them.
you could check Amazon if you have a Kindle, but idk how to get the books outside of the US.
Yep gotta think and look. I hope there is a way. Mainly because history of dragons sounds great for me, and i always loved humans transforming into dragons. Most hyped for this two books haha
Naomi Novik's Temeraire series is great. It's a bit wordy, as it takes a lot of stylistic inspiration from classic literature, but a wonderful story with great characters and a cool alternate history timeline of the Napoleonic wars.
ive been told by a dragon that the "Wings of Fire" series is good.
The "Age of Fire" series by E.E. Knight is a good read, been meaning to reread it actually
My first published work fits your criteria. I am close, agonizingly close, to getting a paperback edition out. It will have a little bit more information, and feel a little more polished, than the admittedly early e-book submission. Books two and three are in the works.
Edit: I have paperbacks. See this: forums.furaffinity.net: Paperbacks are in, The Accidental Ambassador!
Please take a look. Just know that the plot shifts by chapter five.
Well what I'm writing has a plot that makes less sense than Texas Chainsaw Massicer and I'm planning on the main character "fight" a dragon, it's more of a running away spamming spells. The dragon will be sorta important for the end. So wait like 4 years when I actually finish it.
The Dragon and the George by Gordon R. Dickson is an amusing read.
I remember running across a YA series called Dragons in our Midst, by Bryan Davis. Only read through the first book but it was okay.
And I remember seeing the description for a book called Tooth and Claw, by Jo Walton, where the setting was basically everyday Victorian Europe but replace all the humans with dragons.
The DragonBack series By Timothy Zahn is legitimately my favorite series, I completely recommend it. www.goodreads.com: Dragonback series by Timothy Zahn
George R.R. Martin's A Song Of Fire and Ice series (better known by the HBO series Game of Thrones) is a phenomenal and realistic series.
The first two books were good but it kinda dwindled out from there in my opinion. Still, OP, I'd say give it a shot.
The reluctant Dragon.
I don't know if it's been mentioned, but the Inheritance Cycle is almost entirely surrounding dragons, and I rather enjoyed it
Dragonworld by Byron Priess is my all time favorite dragon book. It's also full of amazing pencil illustrations.
Eragon by Christopher Paolini, bro
Yep, read those many years ago. I enjoyed them very much.
